Can you really launch marshmallows out of a vacuum cleaner, make rockets from common household items, or discover how the SKA telescope works using a leaf blower cannon?

Prepare yourself for some serious mind-boggling science as Dr Graham Walker reacts, explodes and experiments his way through the physics of pressure and motion, the chemistry of things that go boom, and much more. With lots of audience involvement, laughs, learning and exciting experiments, this action-packed show is a celebration of the fun in science!
