520    Part two of Catalyst's 10th Birthday edition celebrating 
       ten years on television with a retrospective of scientific
       achievement in the first decade of this millennium 
       FERTILITY There's no doubt that in vitro fertilisation has
       been instrumental in shaping the way we procreate. In the 
       last 10 years medical and social shifts have helped 
       growing numbers of infertile couples to have babies. 
       Thirty years after Australia's first test tube baby was 
       born Maryanne Demasi looks back on the triumphs of an 
       increasingly fertile industry. THE DECADE OF THE BRAIN 
       It's no exaggeration to say the last 10 years have 
       witnessed a revolution in our understanding of the brain. 
       Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and bold new 
       testing paradigms have opened up a new world of 
       understanding about brain development. The take home 
       message of the decade is that the brain is far more 
       adaptable than anyone ever suspected. Landmark studies 
       take us from genes, to neurochemistry, to the shaping of 
       individual personalities - and how that determines the 
       likelihood of outcomes like ending up in gaol! As Jonica 
       Newby experienced in 2006, a gene can determine how 
       quickly you damp down your natural stress response, which 
       in turn predicts your likelihood of clinical depression 
       under stress. Jonica finds the fun in this retrospective 
       romp through a decade of the brain. ASTRONOMY Arguably the
       biggest success story in astronomy, in the decade Catalyst
       has been on air, is the Hubble Space Telescope. It 
       celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. We take a look 
       at some of the amazing images Hubble has given us over the
       years, and discover the major contributions it has made to
       astronomy. For example, Hubble accurately pinned down the 
       age of the universe, found hard evidence for dark energy 
       and it showed the existence of super-massive black holes 
       at the centres of galaxies. Astrophysicist, Dr Graham 
       Phillips, takes a peek at the eventual replacement for 
       Hubble: the James Webb Telescope, that will be more 
       powerful than Hubble and will orbit much further from
