None of the Above Defying Gravity

None of the Above Defying Gravity

Wonderful, bewildering and sensational science is all around us. In a series of experiments in everyday environments, British host Tim Shaw shows us the magic of science. From the near miraculous abilities of a Shaolin monk to what happens when 10,000 volts are pumped straight into a watermelon, this is a show that’s full of surprises. What happens when heat resistant ovenware is pushed to the limit, when a wine bottle is heated and cooled in quick succession, and when the strength of human is hair put to the test? Tune in to find out!
