Portraits Of A Scientist

Season 2, Episode 4 of 4

Science fiction often protrays the people behind important research as mad scientist or evil geniuses. Wavelengths: Portraits of a Scientist dispels these notions by following the lives and the works of not-so-typical researchers and the interesting places they go, both inside and outside their labs. Segments include a woman who is a cancer researcher by day and self-defense instructor at night; a look at a young scientist who solved one of Albert Einstein's toughest equations; and a program to spark lifelong passion for science.
