Pure dingoes and outback fireballs

Thursday, 8 June 2023 - 8:30am

This week on the show Claire speaks to Dr Kylie Cairns all about dingoes, and her groundbreaking research using new genetic tools that has changed the way we understand the lineage of dingoes and in particular whether dingoes hybridised with feral dogs, or in fact are they a lot more pure dingo than we thought.
Also on the show Chris talks to Dr Ellie Sansom from the Desert Fireball Network about the recent fireball that was seen and videoed blazing across the Northern Queensland skies. Where did it come from, what do we know about it, and will we ever find any remaining rocks on Earth?
