Dr Karl takes us on an entertaining and mind-bending voyage through science.
Dr Karl Kruszelnicki tackles CO2 levels and climate change, gravitational waves, breaking the seal and diet drinks. Are we living in the most peaceful time in human history and is this generation the smartest?
Plus, how today’s most widely given vaccine is one against a coronavirus, and we’ve been using it for half-a-century, and each year, it saves billions (that’s right, billions, not millions) of lives each year.
Dr Karl Kruszelnicki AM just loves science to pieces, and has been spreading the word in print, on TV and radio, and online via social media for more than thirty years.
