Catalysts of Creativity

SCIENCE FRIDAY
IRA FLATOW

Where do new ideas come from? Exploring the catalysts of creativity shows that new ideas come not only from professional scientists and inventors but from ordinary people, even movie stars and entertainers. And a look at invention history reveals the pioneers who led the way for today’s age of innovation. A look at patents reveals how the news can stimulate new ideas and how science really is all around us. Why science is just a snapshot of what we know at any time. And how failure is not only an option in science -- but a welcome necessity.

10:10AM
Talking About a Revolution
