[LISTEN] The Science Inside’s Leap Year episode

Take the leap with us on #TheScienceInside and have a listen to the latest episode. We hear from astronomer Duncan Steel how the history of our calendar has been influenced by Popes and politicians and what a perfect calendar might look like. We also speak to an astrophysicist about the fabric of space as we learn how one of Einstein’s theories have been proven right again, almost 100 years later.

Later we speak to the Wits scientists that have put hats on dung beetles and found out why they look to the skies for guidance.

The Science Inside on Vowfm 88.1 – Mondays 6-7pm – Stream on vowfm.co.za.

The Science Inside team is Elna Schütz, DJ Keyez, Buhle Ndweni and Lutfiyah Suliman.

SciBraai, a proudly South African NPO dedicated to science journalism, communication and outreach. SciBraai began on Heritage Day 2013 - Anina Mumm and Engela Duvenage in 2013 launched the website, scibraai.co.za, to feature stories about South African research, technology and innovation, and the people behind the discoveries. This blog welcomes all South Africans to go behind the scenes of local science and exploration endeavors. It’s a place to share stories about the scientists themselves and the interesting, little-known activities that are often left out of research journals. A place to learn more about the stuff that makes South African science and its people tick. A place to feel inspired about what South Africans are discovering on home soil and abroad. Because local is lekker, no matter what language you use. SciBraai's following has grown in the past years, and we are now on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We've also begun organising real-life braai's where we share round-the-fire stories about South African science and scientists.
