With a vast array of topics this week, Steve and Ben delve in to a number of stories covering Science, Technology and Culture. In science, astronomers have confirmed a previously identified galaxy at 13.2 billion light years away, the most distant galaxy observed on record, and one of the first galaxies ever formed. In technology, Google has experienced a mishap of sorts with its self-driving test car inadvertently crashing in to a bus. And in culture, social media and the internet have provided the ultimate platform for anonymous bullying and harassment, but is it any different to what used to happen in the past with anonymous notes, threatening phone calls and the like? Steve and Ben discuss all these topics and more in this week’s episode.
