This week, we delve inside atoms to find out what matter is made of, and how smashing them together can tell us about the birth of the universe. We learn about quarks, antimatter and the 'god particle' and discover that scientists are actually trying to build a black hole in the lab! Also, nano-wires give us the world's smallest solar cells, we hear about glue from mussels that sticks to teflon and the genes that tell you when to wee. Plus Meera peers inside the Dead Sea scrolls without even having to unroll them, using x-rays called 'synchrotron light', and Ben and Dave show you how to conduct your own particle physics experiment, using an old TV set and a magnet!
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends.
