You are surrounded by stickiness. With every step you take, air molecules cling to you and slow you down; the effect is harder to ignore in water. When you hit the road, whether powered by pedal or engine, you rely on grip to keep you safe. The post-it note and glue in your desk drawer. The non-stick pan on your stove. The fingerprints linked to your identity.

‘Sticky - The Secret Science of Surfaces’ is the new book by Irish physicist and author, Laurie Winkless. The book explores the amazing world of surface science and how it shapes the world around us! 

Laurie joined the show this morning to talk all thing surfaces.
