Congratulations to comedian & scientist, Helen Keen, who has won the acclaimed Royal Society Radio Prize awarded by the Association of British Science Writers, with her R4 show, It Is Rocket Science.

 

Helen had stiff competition with the documentary about Rosetta space probe's project to 67/P Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko as well as Frozen in Mawson.

 

It is Rocket Science not only contains the essential factual content but also the comedy to make it truly accessible across the board.  This combination is at the heart of Helen's success and continues to prove a winning combination with corporate and educational speeches and appearances.

 

Quirky, offbeat and original…Helen Keen is clearly someone to watch.”
