‘Life in the Earth’s hot, dark crust’
It is estimated that 20% of Earth’s microbes live in Earth’s crust. How do these microbes live there? What do they eat? Do they cooperate with one another or compete for resources? What can they teach us about origin of life and life on other planets?

Presenter Begüm Topçuoğlu loves microbes and their impact on Earth, and completed her PhD on this topic.

‘Let me Google that for you’

A look at the more esoteric features of Google search in Google and Google Scholar. Advanced search, search tools and how to get the most relevant results will help you ferret out the good bits and leave behind the chaff.

Lorre Smith has been a librarian and an expert in searching databases and teaching others to search since before Google was invented.
