Why is the ocean salty? See a shark jaw, a 350 million year old fossil, a preserved blow fish and learn why single women should stay away from male sharks!
December 16: Space - what is the age of the universe? How did the planets form? How long is a trip to Mars - and how would we live from food to housing on another planet ?
