If you could understand one thing about how the world works, what would it be? Three radio producers (Ari Daniel Shapiro, Emily Corwin and Pien Huang) asked budding school-age scientists what they want to know -- and then we took those questions to some of the brightest scientists in Cambridge. After taking a stab at the questions, we asked the scientists what big unanswered questions they most wanted to understand, and took those sometimes cosmic and often existential questions back to the kids, for answers.
The program was produced in conjunction with the Cambridge Science Festival, and aired earlier this year on a public radio station in Cambridge, Massachusetts. (Photo by Juhan Sonin)
