I’m a science geek so it probably goes without saying that I love the NOVA series on PBS. I’m also a big fan of Neil Degrasse Tyson who is hosting this season of NOVA scienceNOW. So far I’ve recorded two episodes on our DVR and I’ve enjoyed both of them immensely.
The most recent episode dealt with How Does Our Brain Work? If you haven’t seen it then here is a sneak peek:
Each episode is tackling one of the big questions such as Can We Live Forever? and Can We Make It To Mars? Upcoming episodes will ask Where Did We Come From? and How Smart Are Animals? You can catch up on the episodes you missed at the official website for the show. All of them are fairly high-level looks at the questions so you don’t have to be a physics professor to enjoy them. I highly recommend the series.
