Friction is all around us and just as important as gravity – it’s why we slip over on ice and how brakes slow down our bikes.

Join Professor Rob Dwyer-Joyce to find out more about how Leonardo carried out some of the very earliest experiments on friction, how he used this understanding to create ingenious and beautiful machines, and how his work relates to modern research in the field.
