Cambridge Science Festival: The Importance Of Being Interested: Robin Ince
Award winning comedian and science enthusiast Robin Ince looks at his favourite scientists – Charles Darwin and Richard Feynman. Find out why we
have eyebrows, why bald dogs have bad teeth and how heavy metal music makes pigs deaf. This is a loving look into the minds of two giants of human
imagination who changed our worldview. Robin will stop off on the way to look at some of the more bizarre views of early science – is the ostrich really
the offspring of the union of a gnat and a giraffe? (No). A night of barnacles and safe-cracking.
