Episode 36: Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock

roo and maggieDr Maggie Aderin-Pocock tells us how to make a telescope, where you can launch a satellite, and why people STILL haven't gone back to the moon, in this week's show. Maggie leads the optical instruments group at Astrium and communicates big ideas in an accessible way through her own company Science Innovation Ltd. She must be the most enthusiastic scientist in our neck of the galaxy and we really loved meeting her and her new daughter, Lauren.

Elsewhere this week, Roo and Leila discuss eyesight, All The Rage gets an almost embarrassingly comprehensive plug, Dave feeds us summer pies, whatever they are - and lots more.
