Elizabeth Louw asked the Naked Scientists:
   Hi Naked Scientists,

A mythconception for you that I've been thinking about:  I've been told by a few people that after opening a bottle of sparkling wine (such as Champagne) you can prevent the wine from going "flat" by hanging a spoon in the neck of the bottle.

So is this fact or fiction?  And if fact, how does it work?
