This week on The Conduct Science Podcast, join Mitch and Tom as they enter the world of the alien apocalypse! What would actually happen if aliens turned up with the intent to harvest or invade Earth and what is the science behind it? Mitch takes us down the route of War of the Worlds. What are EMPs and how do we combat them? Would you be able to survive in a world decimated by aliens? Tom explores the biology and genetics of rebuilding the human population. We often see two people are left to repopulate the world, but how realistic is that? The boys talk about ways humans might try to survive and, if the aliens leave or are defeated, how we might rebuild as a human race. Catch us next week in our apocalypse month!
