Comedy, music and death, naturally…

We’ve passed the halfway mark and it’s already day six of Glasgow Science Festival!

Last night, Simon Watt, Helen Arney and six of Glasgow’s funniest academics performed to a sell-out crowd at The Admiral Bar, with spider sex, fly sperm and sordid constellations among the well-researched jokes!

Check out the highlights for today’s events below:
