We broadcasted live from the centre of Cape Town for 2 days, which we're bringing to you in a 3-part mid-season special.
In part 1:
The crew is joined by Gareth Kemp from the University of Johannesburg to discuss String Theory and the make up of the universe.
Howard Fyvie pops by to discuss his micro-budget South African zombie film, Last Ones Out, which he wrote and directed. The SA film industry is discussed in general, and there's even a bit of Star Wars talk in there.
Also discussed, Googles digital art. Can a machine create? What is Art?
Oceanic garbage, electric plants, rocket landings, space elevators, sea monkey class systems, tardigrades and much much more.
Ps. This is a live episode, recorded at an event. And therefore there is music in the background and sounds not quite so common to Space Life.
