Flea circus at University of Hertfordshire

March 24, 2000

(Photograph) - It might not be the greatest show on earth, but it might just be the smallest. Richard Wiseman, a psychologist at the University of Hertfordshire, acted as ringmaster for a flea circus to demonstrate a bizarre combination of illusion and the power of insects during National Science Week. The circus, which will be demonstrated at the zoological museum in Tring, Hertfordshire, today and tomorrow, is just one of the many events being staged across the UK to bring science into the community.
