Episode 36 - Let There Be Light?

Come with us on a journey, a journey into the distant past. Imagine if you will that through the miracle of flux capacitance you have been transported to the year zero, and the heart of the Roman Empire. Using only your current understanding of science and engineering, can you recreate a Utopian society complete with all the conveniences of modern life?

That is our challenge.

This week we embark on a new series of episodes that challenge us to create technology, from scratch, in the past. We start with light bulbs, and despite our noticeable gaps in knowledge, and ingenuity, we find a way to move one step closer to kingdom.

Please let us know if you have ideas on possible challenges, or feedback on the episode. We’d love to hear from you!
