Discuss: Your Questions and Swallowing Swords
« on: 08/03/2009 15:52:39 »
We get to the point of cutting edge Naked science this week, answering your science questions and exploring the science of sword swallowing.  We find out how the amazon could become a carbon criminal, learn how to predict the extent of an avalanche, and celebrate the passing of DD45 - an object that floated past the Earth inside the orbit of the Moon.  Plus, we find out if you can catch foot odour, if a bath full of vodka would get you drunk, and the delights of Liver a L'Orange!  Meera Senthilingam takes a 'thinking Walk' with Sir David Attenborough to learn about Charles Darwin, and Dave seems to defy physics by making bubbles that sink!

WoW, I didn't know about DD45! :o
Why didn't I see it in the news!
And it was only 72000 km away!
A near brush with death you could say. [:0]

I actaully heard a bit about it and was surprised how close. I did not pay enough attention at the time about the details, so that will be interesting to hear!
