[LISTEN] The Science Inside – Transport

For petrolheads and science nerds alike, this week’s show gets into all things cars following the petrol strike.

Elna looks at the past and future of electric cars and drives a South African made prototype with Winstone Jordaan from Gridcars. Dr Mathetha Mokonyama from the CSIR talks to us about how public transport systems get designed.

Our weekly tech bite discusses straddle buses and superfast transport.

And Distinguished Professor Emile van Zyl from the Biofuel Research Chair at the University of Stellenbosch speaks to us about biofuel and how the future might be more vegetable, less coal.

The Science Inside team is Elna Schütz and DJ Keyez.

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.
