Excellent selection of stories from last week's Talk of the Nation Science Friday. The host interviews the composer, director, and lead of Dr. Atomic. I hadn't realized how wide-ranging Oppenheimer's education was: he read the Bhagavad Gita in the original Sanskrit fer Christ sakes. Lisa & I will be going to see it on November 21st at the ASO! A discussion of the Miller-Urey experiment with the scientist who recently re-analyzed the material. Amazing stuff. And, there's a short piece about climate change and dealing with the doubters. My opinion: anyone who still doubts it is too ignorant to be worth the effort. But that's just like, my opinion, man; the host and guest were more charitable.
