And that’s pretty much all from the Science Show on Cambridge 105 as the show takes a holiday.  For news of that follow us on twitter@105science.

Finally, many thanks to astronomer Paul Fellows and the dozens of guests who informed us how science takes shape in Cambridge today. Bye from me, Roger Frost.
