Frontiers Lecture: Brilliant Blunders thumb

To err is human, even if you’re a scientist. In this podcast, astrophysicist Mario Livio discusses the interesting scientific mistakes made by famous scientists, the subject of his new book “Brilliant Blunders.” Livio illuminates the errors made by Charles Darwin, Linus Pauling, and Albert Einstein, among others, and argues that these errors are not only inevitable, they are also an essential part of progress in science.

This “Frontiers” lecture took place at the Museum on June 10, 2013.
