WABE presents: Ask a Scientist

How can robots learn to play music? How far can a space telescope see? What kinds of wildlife live right here in our city? WABE, Atlanta's NPR station, presents scientists from different disciplines as they demystify their fields of study, and offer us a chance to Ask a Scientist. Join WABE's science reporter, Molly Samuel, and science enthusiasts of all ages, for an entertaining afternoon of exploration and discovery.

Misty Bentz, Astrophysics - Georgia State University
