Common cold

Geeks, germs and gratuitous library sex 28 December 2010

Baby, it's cold outside. As the snow keeps falling, we ask: can meteorological scientists tell the long-term future about whether governments should invest in snow-clearing equipment? Meanwhile, warm up those numb toes with a trip to the Picturing Science exhibition, a spot of stand-up science comedy at Bright Club, or possibly even some shenanigans in your local library. Calling all high-functioning geeks to join Jenny and Richard in London for these stories and more from the world of science in art, literature and popular culture!
