Herring farts at TEDxGöteborg 2012

News from the TEDx Göteborg 2012 ‘Beyond Borders’ website:

How can herring farts in the Stockholm archipelago almost lead to a diplomatic crisis? Or a bra be converted into a gas mask in case of emergency? To Magnus Wahlberg this is everyday stuff, and proof that science doesn’t have to be dull to be important. He is a biologist and Scandinavian desk chief of the science humor magazine Annals of Improbable Research, and has himself been awarded the Ig Nobel Prize (for those herring farts).

Magnus Wahlberg will tell his Ig Nobel story at TEDx Göteborg 2012, Sweden, on Wednesday October 10th, 2012, at Lorensbergsteatern (in Gothenburg). Try to be there! Apply here for a ticket.
