Follow Dr Karl Kruszelnicki, AM, Australia's favourite science guru, on a multimedia Random Road Trip through Science.
Dr Karl will lead the audience on a mission to track down awe and wonder in the Universe. He asks, Why do wombats poo cubes? What nearly destroyed humanity on Halloween 2015? How do you use an incinerating toilet? Find out why we've sent a spacecraft with Dr Karl's name on it to kiss the Sun. He ponders, whether cannibalism is nutritious, and the answer to the Biggest Question of All - why does spaghetti always break into three pieces? Plus a whole lot more. So strap in and get ready for a random ride through the Universe. Who knows where you'll end up!
