Shane

 

Overview

Height?

5ft 9, the same as Akon and Eminem, so that makes me cool.

Eye colour?

Greeney-blue (like an ocean!)

What's your favourite word?

‘Nan’. Especially when you call someone Nan who is not your Nan

If you could be anyone in the world today, who would it be?

Jack Nicholson is awesome, he has such a unique look without trying to hard, even in his 70's. I would like to be his character in The Shining, without the whole messy ending.

How many members of Take That can you name?

Gary Barlow and Robbie Williams, does he count anymore?

If you could meet any scientist in history, who would it be?

Leonardo da Vinci, why wouldn’t you want to meet someone who is described as "a man whose unquenchable curiosity was equalled only by his powers of invention"!

I like how he tried his hand at everything and anything that interested him. I would be like him if I had intelligence, talent and dedication, but sadly I haven't.

What's your favourite object in the Science Museum?

The stuffed horse in the medical gallery, I like to call him Nan.

What's the best thing about your job?

Having fun every day and meeting new people. I also like the reaction you get when you tell people you work in the Science Museum, it's like you’re telling them that you work for Willy Wonka.

Give us a science fact that will make us say "hmm"?

You don't get aspirin in the jungle because the parrots-eat-'em-all.
