Science Friday, Live From Huntsville

77:37 minutes

Listen to the taping from Science Friday’s live show in Huntsville, Alabama, which took place on April 21, 2015. A parade of science luminaries joined Ira on stage at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center to talk science, space, and ways of “seeing differently.” For instance, Julie Robinson, NASA’s chief scientist for the International Space Station, discussed weightlessness with Ira. Smarter Every Day host Destin Sandlin rolled in for a visit on his backwards bicycle. Physics professor Richard Miller revealed how a little particle called a muon could help shed light on the insides of asteroids, and archeologist Sarah Parcak talked about discovering ancient Egyptian settlements…from space. Tune in to hear these guests, and more.
