Science Weekly podcast: Elon Musk’s rocket factory; eat your underpants; and tanned bottoms

Posted by: admin In: Guardian

It is rocket science! We take a tour around a rocket facility in Los Angeles owned by Elon Musk, a man who wants to retire to Mars! See inside his factory and watch his rockets take off.

In the newsjam we look at the UK’s cloned meat scare, a new study showing genetic links to heart disease, why a number has finally been attached to the statement ‘plenty more fish in the sea’, and some important information if you’re visiting a nudist camp. We know what kind of listeners we have!

Alok meets Nao, an emotional robot developed by the University of Hertfordshire’s robotics laboratory. There’s a video to go with this too.

London’s Science Museum is examining the future of fashion and how waste can be reduced. We ask if we can grow our own underpants and go inside a 3D body scanner. Numerous experts from Imperial College London are on hand to explain more. Check this out if you want to see what clothes grown from green tea look like.
