More from "Talk Science to Me"

Cooling atoms with lasers? John Bohannon does an excellent job of demystifying the physics behind it ... with dance. In his words, "The fewer words you use, the better" when explaining complex subjects. Bohannon is a biologist, science journalist, and dancer based at Harvard University. He writes for Science Magazine, Discover Magazine, and Wired Magazine and frequently reports on the intersections of science and war.
Check this TED talk out...this is crazy in a genius kind of way... Use dancers instead of powerpoint. That's his "modest proposal." In this spellbinding choreographed talk he makes his case by example, aided by dancers from Black Label Movement. With his encouragement, numerous doctoral students deliver their theses as dance performances each year.
