Science Weekly Live at the Royal Institution...

Last night I attended a recording of the Guardian Science Weekly Live at the beautiful Royal Institution of Great Britain building in London's glitzy Mayfair.

Presented by regular Alok Jha it was a series of talks/demos about science in the famous Faraday theatre. We had the transmission of heat demonstrated with a bang, optical illusions, inflating pig's lungs, a new hominini species with an opposable toe to rival Lucy and the proceedings ended with an explosion. Great fun and strong reminiscent of the Christmas Lectures held there every year.
