I went on Friday to a networking event with Sci-Tech Daresbury. I never cease to be amazed at the things the scientists come up with. I was never good at science at school so have a lot of catching up to do. When you hear what’s going on at Daresbury, you can’t say the Northern Powerhouse is a myth, although a lot of the stuff was going on before anyone used that expression. Some people are glad ofall the hype anyway, because it tells foreigners that the North is not a wasteland, but somewhere worth doing business.
I am thinking of writing a novel set against the background of scientific research. The story will be fiction but the science will be real. Who needs sci-fi? The truth really is stranger than fiction!
