Alan Lightman on Story Collider
"I'm going to tell a rocket story..."
 



Listen


On September 23, 2013, MIT Professor of the Practice of Humanities Alan Lightman was featured on The Story Collider, a podcast series on how science impacts our lives on a personal and at times emotional level. 

In this audio clip, Lightman recounts two experiences from his past when he discovered that equations aren't the entire story.
 
Lightman is a novelist, essayist, physicist, and educator, and faculty member in MIT's Comparative Media Studies / Writing Program. He was also one of the first people to receive dual faculty appointments in science and in the humanities.
