    Is there a space for profiling prominent scientists? Ie for black history month talk about contributions by African American scientists and do the same for lesser-known female scientists during women's history month
    In masks outrageous and austere the years go by in single file; but none has merited my fear, and none has quite escaped my smile.

    What if the international space station or any satille stopped orbiting earth and just sat still? Or what would it look like?

    Well you got 2 options here.
    a) It falls down because it got no horizontal speed at all and gravity doesn't just stop in space.
    II) Its in a geostationary orbit, ie it's orbit takes exactly 23h56m and change to complete. Making it look like it stood still overhead. But thats technically still in an orbit.

    What would it look like, mmh. Shooting star like for a, bright spot in the sky for II. I guess.

    I would like to see a video about the Spice trade throughout human history. How fascinating to think spices were valued as currency. Imagine the adventure of being a purveyor of the trade in centuries past. I can't imagine a world without refrigeration. Did everyone eat a lot of jerky? Are we the only animals who use spices? I've also always wondered who dared to eat all these plants and minerals first. I mean the dangers and the history of spice has to be full of the weird and the wild. What amazing part of our past!

    Can there be a video about Elon Musk, sort of a tribute video?

    Please do surprising things we don't know. Like things that sense tells you we do know, because we must surely know, but we actually don't.

    Thanks :smile:

    Over at QMUL they're doing cool stuff using zebrafish to predict the genetic precursors to addiction and other psychological pathologies. I'll dig out the researcher's name and edit it in...

    The London fatberg is now on display in a museum. Drain flies regularly hatch from the 'berg. Time for a follow-up?

    Cheap science! Biological surveys that a citizen can do using inexpensive and accessible materials and reagents.

    How exactly can a swan's wing break your arm? Avian bones are less dense than mammal bones so how would this actually work?

    Stephen Hawking.

    And please don't say "confined to a wheelchair". The chair was the thing that kept him from being confined to a bed and allowed him to continue his work.
