This week, Cameron spoke to Dr. Natasha Hurley-Walker of Curtin University. She has been investigating a mysterious ‘radio transient’ object since the beginning of this year. Before you get too excited, it isn’t aliens, but its discovery is no less fascinating to the scientific community.

Cameron spoke to Dr Hurley-Walker about how she and her colleagues first encountered the object and how they went about investigating it in this peak behind the curtain of the scientific process.
