In this film Physics professor Jim Al-Khalili will be using cutting edge scientific tachneques to investigate how gravity changes your weight, your height and even your posture and with the help of thousands of volunteers Al-Khalili will show us how gravity makes us all age at different rates.
As a physicist gravity is essential to Al-Khalili’s work and when exploring it he will be challenged on his understanding of this most mysterious force, tackling the very nature of reality itself.
