Award-winning comedian and popular-science writer Helen Keen uncovers the astounding science behind the mystical, blood-soaked world of Game of Thrones, answering questions like: Is it possible to crush a person's head with your bare hands? What really happens when royal families interbreed? Does Cersei have borderline personality disorder? What curious medical disorder does Hodor suffer from? And more.
Helen Keen presents this funny, off-beat but factually accurate series exploring the science of rockets, the history of space travel and the brilliant but occasionally warped brains behind it all. In these four episodes, she finds out about the three fathers of rocket science; examines how Wernher Von Braun went from SS officer to American space supremo to Disney children's presenter; takes a look at the breath-taking drama of the Space Race and its evil twin the Cold War.
