A southern man has placed and ad to sell the remote for a specialised trailer a thief stole this week, all for the small sum of $16000 dollars. Chris found a story about a tortoise getting badly damaged in a fire and how 3D printing helped replace his shell.

Sam went night luging, it turns out Chris has never been luging before so he gets a run down on it, and thinks it might be too dangerous for him.

TEDx Scott base was held recently, Chris went to a viewing party and met some interesting people.
