BOOM! – It’s the Royal Institution

I’ve just finished my first month at the the Royal Institution where I’ve been helping with a new online project, which will hopefully be knocking everyone’s socks off once it goes live. So watch this space.

Today I popped into the lecture theatre to watch Professor Chris Bishop as he prepared for his upcoming ‘Science of Fireworks’ public lecture – this mainly involved blowing up balloons containing varying amounts of hydrogen. This produced a couple of rib rattling explosions like this… (obviously all in the name of science).
