Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan for Friday 8 April 2016

1:15 Moby Dick Demystified - Dr Olga Panagiotopoulou

Could Moby Dick actually use its enormous head, to smash the ship Pequod? Given that the whaling ship was five times its size? An international team of scientists believe they have the answer. Dr Olga Panagiotopoulou is an expert on the anatomy, bone biology and mechanics of large animals. She's also an evolutionary morphologist at Australia's University of Queensland and led the study. She explains why she even thought to study this topic.
