[Rerun] Christmas at Science Stories
The starting point for all science is wonder. It is the wonder that has challenged religious dogmas and has paved the way for technological and scientific development that has shaped the world we inhabit. For over 2000 years, we believed that illness was due to imbalances in the body's fluids as Hippocrates described 400 years BC.
So, exactly how did we find that inflammation was due to bacteria? Bacteria which we can't see. How exactly do vaccines work? And why did the human species start walking on two legs?
We find answers to this in this special Christmas edition of Science Stories, where science journalist Charlotte Koldbye has invited two wise and curious children to her home where together they explore the world around them and wonder why man is such a strange animal (in Danish).
