Scientific publishing program Leica Orbit Its ninth season will premiere on Tuesday the 10th of this month on La 2. New parts to make scientific knowledge accessible to everyone, with a lot of entertainment, but without ever losing accuracy.
Eduardo Sáenz de Cabezon once again leads a team of publishers and experts, joined by Adrian García, physics expert and publisher at the Institute for Interdisciplinary Physics and Complex Systems. Written by screenwriter, writer and director José Antonio Pérez Lido, Leica Orbit It will revamp its image with a new head and will celebrate its 100th episode on October 17 with a special show.
In this new season, the space produced by RTVE in collaboration with K 2000, nominated for Best Media Program at the 2023 Iris Awards, will showcase the power of magnetism and storms; You will discover all the sciences in spinning and luxury; You will travel through time to discover the greatest discoveries of the 20th century and explore the ends of the world with the Malaspina Expedition; He will enter the ant colony to discover all its secrets; You will explore the science found on the farm or in the supermarket, among other topics.
The space includes a team of experts in different fields consisting of Ricardo Mori (biology), Débora García Bello (chemistry), José Miguel Viñas (meteorology and climatology), Helena González Borón (genetics), Nahum Méndez (geology) and Laura. Moran (psychology), Zorxo Marinho (neuroscience), and Marian Garcia (pharmacy and nutrition).

Tales of Miletus
The first researcher into magnetism was Thales of Miletus (sixth century BC), but we still do not know how the Earth’s magnetic field appeared or why the poles reversed from time to time. Moreover, until the twentieth century, magnetism did not prove its true potential, becoming the primary force behind computing.
In this first programme, the coordination will immerse itself in the magnetic world. You’ll start by giving amazing demonstrations using magnets, which will help explain how magnetism and electromagnetism work. In the Geology section, we will explain what the planet’s magnetic poles are, what a flip means and what effects it has. In the technology section we will see how magnetism is necessary for a mobile phone to store images; And in biology, something wonderful: bioelectromagnetism.
