The ability to ask “Why?” is uniquely human. Curiosity drives basic scientific research, powers the creativity in disciplines from the arts to technology, and is a necessary ingredient in every form of storytelling. Astrophysicist and bestselling author Mario Livio describes cutting-edge research about the origins and mechanisms of human curiosity.

A book signing will follow.
