Jon Chase: A Science Rapper's Guide to the Solar System!

Posted on behalf of Bath Taps into Science Festival

A tour of the solar system with a difference! Join science presenter Jon Chase as he demonstrates just how extreme our Solar system can be using raps, demos and lots of audience participation.


He’ll be answering questions like:




  • How big is the solar system?




  • How puny is Pluto? How cold is a crater?




  • What’s the smelliest planet?




Caution: contains facts of a humorous nature.

Having completed an honours degree in Aerospace Engineering he then gained a BSc in Science and Science Fiction and a Masters degree in Communicating Science.

He was identified by the Guardian in 2008 as education’s next best thing after producing a science rap video for NASA about astrobiology. Since then, he has worked with many other organisations producing science raps and workshops as well as being a role model and presenter.
