Learn about Dr Karl, the universe and everything, and discover how air conditioning is sexist, how you can kill a spinning hard drive by shouting at it and how space junk is threatening our future capabilities for space travel.

Could there be life on one of Saturn's moons? How much power could you collect from all the lightning on Earth? Why do books have book-smell? Does cooking food really destroy its nutritional goodness?

How do planes lift off the ground and stay in the air? What would happen if the Earth stopped spinning? Why is an extra second inserted into the calendar every one-and-a-half years? And is your home Wi-Fi really spying on you?
