Our very first featured scientist for the year is Mpho Tshisaphungo, who is the first female to head the space weather centre at the South African National Space Agency. She talks about how her career in space weather found her and how being the best keeps her on her toes. On Unscience, we look at unconventional uses of feces and urine! In the news, we look at a new discovery by the Mars Rover and its new uses and finally, we talk about the story of the controversial Chinese researcher, He Jianku who was fired for carrying out his gene- editing research theory on human babies
