Dear ASC community,

The latest science podcast from Up Close, the podcast of the University of
Melbourne is now available:

"Early dating techniques: Determining the age of Australopithecus sediba"
http://upclose.unimelb.edu.au/episode/165-early-dating-techniques-determining-age-australopithecus-sediba

Australopithecus sediba, discovered in 2008 in southern Africa, is the most
significant paleo-archeological find in recent years. These fossilized
specimens have anatomical features lying somewhere between those found in
Australopithecus africanus and Homo erectus. Geochemist Dr Robyn Pickering
discusses the significance of the find, and how the age of Au. sediba was
determined. With science host Dr Shane Huntington.
