Space Station Drama, Wolf Hunt Mania, and Screen-Time Madness

Dr Ciaccio (not a doctor) looks at the science news of the month including the possible first measurement of Hawking Radiation, a titanium ball-drop on Venus, a hot new male contraception idea and the arrival of the Bat Falcon. Plus a Science AF short on the re-instatement of wolves to the endangered species list after a disastrous massacre/hunting season in Wisconsin. Then a Deep-Dive into the latest International Space-Station Drama. Is Russia planning to tank it before NASA gets a chance to dunk it into the sea? Finally, we take a look at the fierce misguided hatred directed at "Screen Time" and why it is COMMON NONSENSE!
