Make Me A Super is an exciting, fun and ballsy science series that attempts to deconstruct the super powers of super heroes and re-construct them using science. Helmed by an eccentric and whacky scientist-host, Doc K, and her intelligent tween sidekick, Nash, Make Me a Super is a science demonstration series that uses the idea of ‘super powers’ to introduce kids to scientific concepts.
Inside a spaceship at Jiuquan Launch Facility, three men sit on top of 500 tons of liquid fuel. A controlled explosion will blast them three hundred kilometers into space, and into the record books. This is China’s next great leap into space – an historic mission where one Taikonaut will become the first Chinese man to walk outside the spacecraft.

Upon his autopsy in 1955, Einstein’s brain is said to have been sliced and scattered among researchers around the world. Where are the pieces now? The journey leads to the rediscovery of hundreds of photos taken during the autopsy as well as an individual in possession of over 100 fragments of Einstein’s brain. The data gathered is brought together to build in 3D CGI, Einstein’s brain as it would have been in his 20’s, when he proposed the relativity theory. An extraordinary journey and the latest in neuroscience turn a new page in the story of the genius’s brain. Can the answer to human genius be found in putting back together Einstein’s brain?
