Feature : Yorkshire Day
Yorkshire Cancer Research set up a Health and Well-being tent at the Yorkshire day festival at Harewood House in Leeds in order to promote the work their charity funds, and to try and raise awareness of known cancer risk factors. Ross spoke to Emma Young, an events manager for the charity, and also to Scientists from Leeds, York, Sheffield and Bradford universities about some of the research they conduct funded with money from YCR.
Noel introduces the third part of our serial – Rossum’s Universal Robots.
In this week’s weird science Noel wonders how exactly mice on top of Mt Everest can help to combat doping in sport, while Ross fears that you may not even be safe from annoying mobile phone calls on the moon.
