Book DescriptionVeteran NPR(r) science reporter and award-winning radio and TV journalist Ira Flatow s enthusiasm for all things scientific has made him a beloved on-air correspondent. For more than thirty-five years, Flatow has interviewed the top scientists and researchers on many NPR and PBS programs, including his popular Science Friday(r) spot on Talk of the Nation. In Present at the Future, he shares the groundbreaking revelations from those conversations, including the latest on nanotechnology, space travel, global warming, alternative energies, stem cell research, and using the universe as a super-duper computer. Flatow also further explores his favorite topic, the science of everyday life, with explanations on why the shower curtain sticks to you, the real story of why airplanes fly, and much more. From dark matter and the human consciousness to the surprising number of scientists who believe in a Creator, Present at the Future reveals the mysteries of science, nature, and technology that shape our lives.
