This week on the Guardian Science Weekly
"This week, the Science Weekly team discuss dark energy and the even darker matter of the gender gap with astrophysicist Sarah Bridle - recipient of a Women in Science fellowship. It's sponsored by a well-known cosmetics company - is it worth it? Do awards like this actually help to de-beard science? And isn't this a wider societal problem anyway?
Also in the show, we hear from comedian Bill Bailey about his admiration for the anthropologist Alfred Russel Wallace - the forgotten hero of evolution."
