Modelling chemistry of the atmosphere – 105science

We visit the Centre for Atmospheric Science in Cambridge University and speak to Professor John Pyle about modelling the atmosphere using supercomputers. See www.atm.ch.cam.ac.uk

We talk about Norovirus and how to avoid it. See www.sturff.org

We also reflect on New Year’s resolutions to eat what’s good for us in our Science Fact or Fiction quiz – play along!

  • Would eating more eggs increase our blood cholesterol?
  • Why might modern eggs be better for us than eggs of years ago?
  • Tea contains antioxidants, but for how long should we steep our tea to get them?
  • Is there such a thing as ‘too much’ when it comes to antioxidants?
  • Are baked beans healthy and do they really make us more metaphorically musical?
  • Why do Mexican jumping beans jump?
