In this week’s show, we looked at the science in movies, specifically space sci-fi.

In the news, we discover that sons of older fathers tend to be “geeks” and how the presence of your smartphone reduces brain capacity.

If you believe in the existence of aliens, make sure you listen to Seth Shostak, the senior astronomer of the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence). He explains what the institute does, and how they search for E.T.

Unscience looks at the science of exercising while taking a nap (Napercise).

Later we chat space travel and its effects with Jim Adams of NASA.

The Science Inside is presented by Elna Sch├╝tz and DJ Keyez. Our
production team is Gabriel Chemhuru , Nelly Black and
