The aforementioned ladies
And on the ninth day of Christmas… my lawyers advised me against making sexist jokes pertaining to the dancing ladies in question. Today’s questions to stretch your memory and your chemical knowledge are:
Why was Chemistry World‘s mild-mannered Phillip Broadwith shouting at queen-of-jam-tarts-and-kindly-old-lady Mary Berry, who presents the programme The Great British Bake-off?
What was Nasa associate administrator John Grunsfeld referring to in August when he said: ‘The seven minutes of terror has turned into the seven minutes of triumph’?
And finally, the answers to yesterday’s quiz. It was the ozone layer that had grown slightly in size. Warmer temperatures have been blamed for the slight increase and the hole is not predicted to return to its 1980s state until 2065. An amazing 5 (five!) litres of carbon dioxide escape from every bottle of champagne. Have a look at our Christmassy feature, Raising a glass to champagne, to learn more. We’ll see you tomorrow at the same chem-time, at the same chem-place.
