Do scientists see the world in a different way? Not really, says Neil deGrasse Tyson, as long as you have insatiable curiosity and a passion to experiment and measure the stuff around you. We’ll get a lesson in science literacy from Tyson and Hope Jahren. And legendary physicist Freeman Dyson reflects on a lifetime in science. The broadcast of this episode also featured a conversation with poet Nick Lantz for our series the News from Poems.
