Episode 218 – 20th December 2013 – CHRISTMAS HADTACULAR!

This week we speak to COMMANDER CHRIS HADFIELD, who recently spent six months on board the International Space Station, whilst simultaneously becoming a hero to everyone on Twitter. We find out Hadfield’s thoughts on the current on-going ISS ammonia leak, how he got involved in Robin Ince & Brian Cox’s Christmas show, what it was like meeting Stephen Hawking, and much more.

Plus back on earth we speak to a man suing the FBI because of Freedom of Information, figure out if scientists should boycott the major journals, and weigh up whether Christmas is a good thing, or a bad thing.
