OUR NEXT GUEST IS PROFESSOR OF SCIENCE AND SOCIETY, AT THE
IMPERIAL COLLEGE IN LONDON, HE HOLDS 23 HONOREE DOCTORATES AND
THE AUTHOR OF THIS BRILLIANT NEW BOOK, MY AMAZING BODY MACHINE.
PLEASE WELCOME OUR GOOD FRIEND PROFESSOR THE LORD ROBERT
WINSTON.
THANK YOU FOR COMING BACK TO SEE US.
WE LOVE IT WHEN YOU STOP BY.
ALL RIGHT.
SO ROBERT, WE ARE READY, WE'RE IN THE ZONE.
LET'S GET OUR SCIENCE ON.
WHAT ARE WE GOING TO BE DOING FIRST.
>> LET'S START WITH THE THING AT THE END.
>> James: WITH THIS.
>> COME AROUND.
>> James: OKAY.
>> SO BASICALLY YOU HAVE GOT QUITE A SMART WHITE COAT ON.
>> James: YES, I'M A SCIENTIST.
>> IT'S TOO SMART.
>> James: WHAT?
ROBERT.
WHAT IS.
>> LOOK, YOU ARE A BIT BLUER.
THAT SUIT ISN'T WORTH ANYTHING, IS IT?
>> James: WELL, IT'S WORTH A LITTLE BIT, YEAH.
>> THIS IS A SOLUTION TO DRY CLEANING.
>> James: RIGHT.
>> THAT WAS ALKALI.
AND IT IS BLUE BECAUSE IT HAS A BLUE DIE IN IT AND WE ARE GOING
TO SKIRT YOU WITH ACID TO NEUTRALIZE IT.
>> James: HANG ON.
WHAT DO YOU MEAN.
LOOK AT THAT?
LOOK.
AND THEN IT.
>> IT'S RUBBISH.
THIS IS CARBON DIE OXIDE, SO CARBONIC ACID IS ACTUALLY MUCH
MORE EFFECTIVE.
>> James: OKAY.
LET ME STAND WELL BACK.
NOW WAIT FOR THE REACTION.
LOOK, ALMOST CLEAN.
(APPLAUSE).
>> James: RIGHT, I FEEL LIKE THIS ISN'T EVEN A SCIENCE THING,
YOU'VE JUST COME UP WITH SOME WAY TO DO THAT TO ME.
THAT'S PRETTY INCREDIBLE.
THAT'S AMAZING.
IT'S JUST GONE.
I MEAN IT'S FREEZING COLD, I WILL GIVE IT THAT.
WHAT ELSE HAVE YOU GOTS FOR US, WHAT ELSE.
>> LET ME SEE, WE'VE GOT THIS.
>> James: WHAT IS THAT?
>> THAT IS LACAPODIUM POWDER. AND ST QUITE EXPLOSIVE.
SO YOU CAN-- DO YOU WANT TO TRY LIGHTING IT.
>> James: NO.
>> GO ON.
>> James: WHEN YOU SAY QUITE EXPLOSIVE, WHAT DO YOU MEAN?
ON A SCALE OF ONE TO TEN, HOW EXPLOSIVE IS THIS.
>> SEVEN.
(LAUGHTER).
>> James: THAT FEELS A LOT.
RIGHT.
WHAT AM I DOING, JUST LIGHTING THIS.
>> THESE ARE EXCEPTIONALLY FINE PARTICLES THEY ARE ABOUT
1,000th MILL MEETER ACROSS.
ALL PACKED TOGETHER.
THEY COME FROM A PLANT CALLED LACAPODIUM.
AND IT'S A MOSS AND IT'S USED BY ALL SORTS OF HOMEOPO, THIS IS TO
CURE DIARRHEA, SUPPOSED TO BE AN APHRODISIA BUT IT ALSO IS
EXPLOSIVE.
>> James: IT CURES DIARRHEA AND IS ALSO AN APHRODISIAC.
>> IT IS HOMOPATHIC SO IT PROBABLY DOESN'T WORK.
>> James: SO WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN WHEN I LIGHT THIS.
>> LET'S JUST HAVE A LOOK.
>> IT'S NOT VERY IMPRESSIVE, IS IT?
>> James: WELL, I MEAN, IS THAT IT?
>> YOU SEE, IT'S A VERY FINE POWDER.
I WILL SHOW YOU HOW FINE IT IS.
IF WE PUT IT IN THIS WATER.
>> James: YEAH, PUT IT ON WATER, THAT WILL SET IT ON FIRE,
ROBERT.
I MEAN WHO IS THE SCIENTIST.
>> IT'S HIDE DRO PHOBIC NOW.
THIS ISN'T TERRIBLY POISONOUS SO PUT YOUR FINGER THROUGH THAT
DUST.
>> James: WHEN YOU SAY TERRIBLY POISONOUS, I WANT IT TO
BE NOT POISONOUS OR POISONNIST ONCE PUT YOUR PING-- FINGER IN.
>> James: REALLY, ARE YOU SURE.
>> YES.
GENTLY.
NO, NO, THROUGH THE POWDER, NOT IN THE WATER.
>> James: WHAT DO YOU MEAN.
>> LIKE THAT.
>> James: OH, LOOK, OH, WOW.
>> SO BASICALLY IT IS COMPLETELY DRY.
>> James: YEAH.
>> BECAUSE IT IS PROTECTING MY FINGER AGAINST THE WATER BECAUSE
OF THE SURFACE TENSION.
NOW WHAT WE ARE GOING TO DO.
WE WILL MAKE SOMETHING A LITTLE BIT MORE CHALLENGING.
>> James: OKAY.
>> I'VE GOT SOME OF THE POWDER IN THIS SHOE.
AND I WANT YOU TO BE ABSOLUTELY, YOU MUST PROMISE ME.
>> James: YES.
>> THAT YOU WILL BLOW INTO THIS SHOE AND NOT SUCK IT.
>> James: SURE, YES.
>> HOLD IT LIKE THAT.
>> James: I HAVE DONE THIS AT THE SIDE OF THE ROW BEFORE.
>> James: PUT YOUR GOGGLES ON.
>> OKAY.
>> James: ALL RIGHT.
>> I'M GOING IT LIGHT THIS THING.
>> James: YEAH.
>> AND YOU'RE GOING TO BLOW, NOT TOO HARD, FAIRLY CONTINUOUSLY
GENTLY AND I AM GOING TO TRY AND SET THE WHOLE THEATER UPON FIRE.
WAIT, WAIT, WAIT, DON'T DO IT UNTIL I TELL YOU.
>> James: DON'T WORRY, I'M IN NO RUSH.
>> GO.
(APPLAUSE) >> SO BASICALLY THAT WORKS CUZ
THOSE PARTICLES, THOSE LITTLE SEEDS ARE FULL OF FAT.
>> James: YEAH.
>> AND THAT FAT IGNITES AND WHEN THE PARTICLES ARE MIXING WITH
OXYGEN AND SEPARATED FROM EACH OTHER THEY CAN OXIDIZE, THEY CAN
BURN.
>> James: THAT'S AMAZING.
WHAT HAVE YOU GOT FOR US NOW, WHAT HAVE WE GOT HERE.
>> COME ON THE FRONT.
>> James: OKAY.
ALL RIGHT.
>> WATCH THESE TWO BA BE LOOS.
ONE HAS BEEN BLOWN UP WITH ORDINARY AIR.

>> THAT ONE IS REALLY HEAVY.
>> James: YES STRKS.
WHAT IS IN THERE.
>> PICK IT UP AND SEE T IS SULFUR HEXO FLOUR IDENTIFY WHICH
IS ONE THE HEAVIEST GASES AVAILABLE, ABOUT SIX TIMES
HEAVIER THAN ATMOSPHERIC AIR.
>> James: RIGHT.
>> WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO BECAUSE IT IS A VERY, VERY DENSE GAS BUT
NOT UNTIL I TELL YOU.
>> James: OKAY.
>> I WANT YOU TO INHALE IT, AND THEN-- .
>> James: I DON'T THINK IT'S THAT SORT OF BALLOON, REG.
GO ON.
YOU WANT ME TO INHALE IT.
>> I WANT TO YOU INHALE IT BUT YOU MUSTANT INHALE TOO MUCH OF
IT BECAUSE IT WILL FILL YOUR LUNGS AND DISPLACE ALL THE
OXYGEN AND THAT MIGHT BE A BIT SAD, REALLY.
>> James: ALL RIGHT, OKAY, HANG ON.
