Epic Zipline Science Stunt - 'Mission Friction' - Blue Peter

  • Published on Oct 27, 2017
  • Blue Peter's Science Guy, Greg Foot, puts science to the test with an epic zipline stunt. Can you zipline hanging from nothing but two interwoven books?!?! This is Mission Friction.
    Greg is a Science Presenter on RU-clip, on TV, on Stage, on Podcast and NOW on Radio too!
    On RU-clip he’s racked up more than 20million hits answering curious questions, on Stage he’s had his own nationwide theatre tour, his new Podcast “The Best Thing Since Sliced Bread?” investigates the bold claims being made by promising products, and on TV Greg has hosted multiple series for the BBC and he’s the Science Guy on Blue Peter!
    Greg is a Public Engagement Fellow for The Wellcome Trust and regularly writes, produces and presents content for the BBC, Honda Racing F1, the AXA Research Fund, and many other clients.
    Greg is a keen scientific adventurer - a few years ago he trekked up to the world’s highest pop-up lab at Everest Base Camp to join a group of scientists doing cutting edge research that will change intensive care medicine for ever, and this year he joined another, diving 300m down into the deep ocean in a high-tech submersible to measure the health of our planet’s beating heart.
