In honour of SA Fashion Week, we speak to the team at Silverguard about an antimicrobial silver threaded fabric that may help save South African lives.

We also find out what goes into getting a great body from Miss Wits 2017, Palesa Lombard, last year’s winner, Errin Brits, Wits Varsity Cup side flank, Jethro de Lange as well as Leanne Kiezer, who is Pick n Pays registered dietician.

In the news it’s Martian farming and sarcastic emojis. This week’s UnScience finds out how to pour the perfect second cup of coffee. Plus, we wrap up March Mammal Madness 2017 by revealing the triumphant winner and making the Sport Hub’s Anthony Teixera a little bit sad.

TheScience Inside is presented by Elna Sch├╝tz and DJ Keyez. Our production team is Matthew Law, Gabriel Chemhuru, Moniq Lyons and Michael Venter, with technical production by Kutlwano Serame.
