Love these shows. Always an interesting topic covered in just a few minutes! Tiny satellites... who knew!?
Sharing this because we ALL need to know about the basic signs and symptoms of suicide, and we can all help to prevent suicide.
Goodbye 29,029! Fascinating episode about the height of Everest and what goes into measuring it. Scrap the old text books because a team of scientists will soon announce a new height of Everest.
