Robert answers a big question

Have your say

A ROTHERHAM man has made the final 11 out of 22,000 entries to a competition run by the Royal Society of Chemistry.

Robert Bilinski, a 22-year-old field engineer currently working for an oil company in Aberdeen, took on the challenge of answering a question some of the greatest minds in history could not answer.

He came up with a theory on why hot water sometimes freezes faster than cold water.

In his submission, Robert explored the role of convection currents and even suggested some experiments to be conducted in outer space.

The winner will be announced on January 10.
