Mark had his television debut as far back as 1990 while still at Bishops College. The organisers discovered that one of the boys in the winning three-member Bishops team was none other than SAs first space traveller, Mark Shuttleworth. The event was televised during prime-time on TV1. Minquiz is a national science quiz sponsored by Mintek for the last fifteen years. This year's event is going to be held at Mintek in Randburg on 10 May 2002. Good luck to all you Hip2b2's!
