Well, not exactly a bar. But a recording studio. And the results of their volatile chemistry was magical. If you missed the once-in-a-lifetime conversation between movie maker Werner Herzog, novelist Cormac McCarthy and physicist Lawrence Krauss, you missed a great moment – actually 50 great moments. These guys were awesome. The talk ranged from the origin of humans to the end of the world. It’s not often you hear a Pulitzer Prize novelist talk about the Higgs boson or a physicist discuss the arts. If you missed this soon-to-be Science Friday classic program, you can catch it on iTunes.
