The second inquiry into the conviction of Kathleen Folbigg for the deaths of her four children began in Sydney this week.
Former Chief Justice Tom Bathurst KC is reviewing the case. Folbigg is serving a 30 year sentence, after she was jailed in 2003.
Cosmos science reporter Matt Agius has been closely following the inquiry, and explains from Sydney how the latest scientific evidence was received in court.
