Science Friday

Ig Nobel Science

Today at 11:00am

Take a trip to the 27th First Annual Ig Nobel Awards, a salute to the strange and silly in science...from research into sloshing coffee, to an investigation of why old men tend to have large ears. It’s science that first makes you laugh, and then, makes you think.
