Two new podcasts of science lectures given this week are now on the University's website

Yesterday's lecture, 'The science of the swerving free kick', by Dr Ken Bray, of the Sport & Exercise Science group in the School for Health, revealed the science behind the swerving free kick, using scientific videos and match footage.

On Monday, the award-winning space historian Piers Bizony gave a lecture on 'Fifty years since Sputnik', presenting an illustrated account of the Space Age, from the first tiny satellites to America's colossal project to land men on the moon.

Thirty podcasts have been placed on the site in the past two years, downloaded over 250,000 times by people in 50 countries. The University is listed as the top university podcast provider by i-Tunes, ahead of Oxford, Cambridge, Yale and the Sorbonne.
