Overview

Embark on a disgusting but utterly scientific journey through the human body with BBC gastronaut Stefan Gates.

This session includes snot-eating, cooking with vomit and spit, lots of gut action, fluid dynamics of sphincters, the sensory perception of flatus, a huge vortex cannon firing smells around the auditorium and, of course, live on-stage excretion.
