The Science of Everyday Life

Robin Ince and Brian Cox look at the fundamental laws of nature that govern not just the biggest phenomena in the cosmos, but also the inside of a humble cup of tea.

The Science of Everyday Life
Robin Ince and Brian Cox return for a new series. They are joined on stage, at the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry, by comedian Russell Kane, physicist Helen Czerski and engineer Danielle George as they discuss the science to be discovered in everyday life. They discover how the humble cup of tea displays fundamental laws of nature that also govern our climate. How dropping raisins in a bottle of lemonade reveal how the Titanic sunk, and a robot orchestra, created from household objects, plays some familiar tunes.
