Stock markets drop sharply for a second day as fears grow of a fresh global economic slowdown. Poor German economic data and recent pessimism from the International Monetary Fund have been blamed, but how worried should we be? We speak to Marie Diron, from credit ratings agency Moody's. We speak to Nick Woodman, the surfer-turned-millionaire boss of GoPro, which makes tiny high definition cameras. Plus, we find out about the revival of the UK high street, thanks to fish and chip shops and tattoo parlours.
From finding awe in Hubble images to visiting the doctor, science is everywhere in our lives. Whether we wear a white lab coat or haven't seen a test tube since eighth grade, science affects and changes us. We all have a story about science, and at The Story Collider, we want to hear those stories.
