In the latter half, astrophysicist Mario Livio will discuss the lives of five eminent scientists – Charles Darwin, William Thomson (Lord Kelvin), Linus Pauling, Fred Hoyle, and Albert Einstein.

Guest(s): Leonard Mlodinow
Caltech physicist, Leonard Mlodinow, will discuss his work on the power of the subliminal, and how the unconscious mind shapes our experience of the world including your preference in politicians, and the amount you tip your waiter.
