Season 2, Episode 8

Getting stuck deep underground with thousands of years old human remains may not sound like fun to some people, but for explorer and paleoanthropologist Keneiloe Molopyane, it is a dream come true. And, her discoveries in South Africa’s Cradle of Humankind have the potential to change the world.

Molopyane is an underground astronaut, a National Geographic Society emerging explorer, and a diehard Tintin comic fan. This week on Africa Science Focus, we hear how Molopyane is using her science superhero alter ego, Bones, to inspire new generations of adventurers and scientists.
