[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.
