From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 4:33 pm on 20 February 2014

Topics - the film 'Gravity' could happen in real life! A drifting satellite that the European Space Agency lost contact with could break up and spark a deadly debris field. The amazing story of 5 year-old Charlotte Figi is changing attitudes to the medical use of marijuana. Charlotte is largely seizure-free and able to walk, talk and feed herself after taking oil infused with a special cannabis strain. Yesterday (on the pre-panel show) Susan Baldacci presented some UCLA research reported in the New York Times. Essentially it said that driving drunk makes you 20 times more risky on the road, while driving under the influence of marijuana is only twice as bad, more on this topic.
