Science Thursday on TWIT – April 22, 2010

April 22nd, 2010


Today (and most Thursdays) on TWiT I host Science Thursday…

It starts at 2pm PT with Maxwell’s House starring Ray Maxwell. Ray delves into the world of aviation, and today’s show will focus on Ash Clouds, Aero Cars, and being a Test Pilot.

From 3:30 – 4:30pm PT, you can catch Dr. Kiki’s Science Hour. Today I interview Rebecca Skloot, author of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, about her book, the science of cells, and finding such an amazing story.

Then from 5-5:30pm PT, Roz Rows the Pacific will find Roz Savage wherever she is in the Southern Pacific Ocean to discuss her journey and the concept of sustainability. Our guest will be Marcus Eriksen of the 5Gyres project.

Happy Earth Day, everyone. May you live the life you love, and may that love give back to the planet.

I hope you can join in the fun on

    I’ve got a topic that I’d like to hear discussion about on one of your shows. I like my Apple Gadgets, from my MacBook, iPhone, iPod, and soon to arrive iPad. But I feel guilty buying them. Let’s use my recent iPad order as an example. I ordered the iPad, a case, an extra plug, the camera connection kit, and a dock. Much to my horror Apple has been shipping them all separately via FedEx air freight from China, and a separate truck trip to my house. This happens almost every time I order something from Apple, and I feel like my carbon footprint grows to a 14EEEE each time. Should I worry about this? Or just say to heck with the environment and go buy a Hummer. I’d chose a middle way but I live in Vermont where there are no Apple Stores, so its mail order for me…
