Well better late than never…
This week sees the introduction of a new science programme on Radio 4 to fill the gaping cavern in our lives that was left by the departure of Material World. Inside Science is presented by Dr Adam Rutherford (with Dr Lucie Green, and Professor Alice Roberts presenting later in the year) and is @MrsDrSarah’s pick of the week. My pick is What Makes Us Human, looking at the differences between our species and other animals.
The video of the week is a lovely slow mo video showing the wonderful phenomenon self-siphoning beads by Earth Unplugged featuring Steve Mould from Festival of the Spoken Nerd. It was brought to my attention via http://sciencedemo.org/ and features some nice explanations about forces and travelling waves.
