Science Ink on this week's Science Friday

By Carl Zimmer | January 11, 2012 1:36 pm

I’ll be on National Public Radio’s Science Friday this week to talk about Science Ink. Host Ira Flatow and I will be chatting during the 3 pm EST hour. In the meantime, the folks at Science Friday have set up a slide show preview.

    My husband heard the Science Friday discussion and as so excited to tell me about it!

    I have a Carl Sagan portrait on my right calf and would love to see this beautiful piece of artwork make it into the next edition! Most people my age don’t recognize him, but it’s a great opportunity to tell them about how he shaped so many people’s lives and careers. When someone does recognize him, it becomes a wonderful discussion about our memories of and our favorite quotes from Mr. Sagan.

    Also, I can’t wait to get a copy of this book! It’ll be fun and inspirational to me to see the creativity!

    I went to the library to get the book.
    It’s great!
    However,on pg 181 the title is Marmot but the tattoo is a Motmot. I hope in future editions this mistake is fixed!

    [CZ: It’s on the list for the next printing.]
