Science can answer most of life’s big and little questions – but you don’t always have scientist on hand to explain their reasoning. Now you do, with a new Cosmos Science Detectives podcast finding the experts and interrogating them to help answer your burning inquiries.

And we want to hear from you.

The crack Cosmos team of newsroom science journalists will leave no stone unturned. They’ll open a case file; find evidence and witnesses; and give you the detail you need to close a case of “uncertainty.”

In the first three episodes we explain why mangroves are thought to be important; how we can tell that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west; and we answer the question – do whales have teeth?

And we want to answer your questions. Fill out the form and send it in.  

Listen to Science Detectives wherever you get your podcasts by searching The Cosmos Podcast. You’ll find us in there.

And don’t forget to “like” the podcast so you know when the next episode comes up, and to find out when Cosmos Science Detectives are on your case.
