Before going on baby enforced hiatus in March I was able to squeeze in an appearance at Science Showoff 5 this month. This really is a great night with a mixture on many scientific topics – ranging from an opening session on making concrete and closing with a talk on the effect lightening has on aircraft. The latter was presenting by a Welshman with the stagename – Rhys Lightning! Fantastic.
There was also an item on the use of tattoos and how they can assist in forensics as well as Andrew Holding presenting colourful huge litmus tests which were great.
