"Humans are storytellers," says host Roger Bingham. "Show us the sun, moon and stars and we'll spin any number of tales about life and death, good and evil. We tell stories to feel at home in the Universe." Humans are both mythmakers and scientists. Often, myth and science produce very different stories, different paths to the truth. And yet, they are both products of our brains, trying to make sense of our experience. This program explores the way of science at the end of this century, and the directions it is taking in helping us know ourselves and to approach the big questions with new information and insight.
