Packed house tonight for 'Fake it till you make it' Pint of Science talks at @bristolarmssyd - concurrent events in 60 cities around the world tonight! #pintau16 Out with the old, in with the new! Growth cabinets at the plant growth facilities of @macquarieuni being replaced today.

Absolutely ready to continue being impressed tomorrow!!
