- Temperature is a natural part of our everyday lives. It's there when we shiver in the cold, watch a lightning storm or boil the kettle for tea. We think we know all about temperature, but the science behind it is full of surprises. Explosive demonstrations and fascinating case studies examine temperature at a molecular, human and planetary level. Witness solids that behave like liquids, super-cooled ceramics that defy gravity, and plasmas hotter than the sun. Everyday notions of temperature are turned on their head in a show guaranteed to provoke heated debate. Physicist Dr. Helen Czerski explores the narrow band of temperature that has led to life on Earth. She reveals how life began in a dramatic place where hot meets cold, and how every single living creature on Earth depends on temperature for its survival. She uncovers the extraordinary natural engineering that animals have evolved to keep their bodies at the right temperature. And she witnesses the remarkable surgery that's using temperature to push the human body to the very brink of life.
