A 17-year-old boy has worked out how germs travel on planes - and what can be done to stop them.
Raymond Wang explained in a new TED talk how he built computer simulations to show how germs move around aircrafts at speed. He said that as air was pumped around the cabin, pathogens were spread from passenger to passenger.   Airborne diseases including SARS, bird flu and Ebola have prompted major international alerts over the past 20 years, but Mr Wang hopes his design could help restrict their spread during flights.

Here is my idea.

The mods will each pick one comment from the week on a Friday and put up for a vote, of which they also vote for and on a Sunday evening the winner with the most votes is awarded the prize.
lol have this feeling victor might win a few.
