Aoibhinn Ní Shúilleabháin, Jonathan McCrea and Kathriona Devereux return to present series 2 of “10 Things to Know About…” and highlight exciting Irish research themed around “Staying Young”, “Virtual Reality” “Alien Invasion”, “Beef and Beer”, “Smarter Living” and “Sports Performance”

Aoibhinn travels to the gothic churches of Brittany, France where Irish researchers are investigating whether bats could hold the key to eternal youth, Kathriona looks into the science behind the perfect steak, and Jonathan heads underwater to discover how Irish engineers are helping to build and maintain our increasingly connected and smarter planet!

And Fergus McAuliffe is back with some more ‘Weird Science’ highlighting the world’s most expensive beef burger, the frightening connection between the first recorded example of doping in sports and rat poison, and why the modern Irish could well be considered aliens in their own nation…
