Laura Mears

This month, Laura sets the record straight on some of the most widely ac­cepted sci­ence myths. She also de­bunks some com­mon con­spir­a­cies and ex­plains the psy­chol­ogy of the be­liev­ers.

Jonny O’cal­laghan

Jonny tack­les the space sec­tion of our myth­bust­ing spe­cial, ex­plain­ing the re­al­ity be­hind the fan­tas­ti­cal mis­con­cep­tions sur­round­ing our So­lar Sys­tem.

James Horton

In this is­sue, James sep­a­rates the hype from the head­lines to ex­plain what’s re­ally go­ing on with our gad­gets. Do video games make peo­ple more vi­o­lent? And why do our de­vices slow down as they age?

Tim Wil­liamson

Our per­cep­tions of the past are sul­lied with mis­quotes, mis­trans­la­tions and downright lies. Tim delves into the his­tory books to sort fact from fic­tion. He also re­veals the fas­ci­nat­ing story of the Ro­man Baths.

Jodie Ty­ley

In this month’s his­tory sec­tion, Jodie un­cov­ers the ori­gins of the now-fa­mous Tube map de­sign. She also ex­plores Por­tu­gal’s mys­te­ri­ous me­galithic mon­u­ment and busts some his­tor­i­cal myths.
