Discuss: How Do Jellyfish Reproduce?
« on: 16/03/2010 22:06:24 »
How do odour-killing insoles stamp on smelly feet? Do submariners' ears pop? How do Portuguese Man o'War jellyfish reproduce? We take on your science questions this week as well as hearing the highlights from the Cambridge Science Festival and making a tornado from flames. Plus, news of octopuses having high definition temper tantrums, why some people are genetically wired to feel more pain, eyeless scorpions that have evolved their way out of a blind alley and how scientists can see what's going in your mind's eye...!

Re. Jellyfish: Quite easily I suppose. They certainly have the tenticles.

I'd have thought you meant "tentackles" ...

Well, if you are referring to their "wedding tackle", we are on the same page. I didn't realize they actually have ten.
