Popping Popcorn, Dog Emotions and Sexy Red Gadgets – Weird Science on FIVEaa

[ Download Link | | Duration: 15:26 | File size: 21.19M ]

Once a fortnight RiAus science communicator, Dr Ben Lewis, catches up with Will Goodings at FIVEaa to discuss the latest weird science.

What makes popcorn pop? Ben and Will discuss the mechanics of a popping kernel of corn – the critical temperature, what makes them jump, and just why they make that popping sound. Then can a dog tell your emotion? New research suggests they can, and that they know when you’re angry. Finally a message for the single ladies – carrying a red laptop or gadget makes you more attractive to men.
