The Method: Windows To The Past And The Future
This month's edition of The Method involves a little time travel. But don't worry; we'll take only eight minutes of your time.
First, Brandon's off to the Gray Fossil Site in Washington County. Miocene-epoch fossils found there have painted an incredible picture of life in East Tennessee five million years ago. Two paleontologists will tell us what makes Gray special.
Then, Chrissy speaks with Timothy Persons, Chief Scientist of the Government Accountability Office, about the National Nanotechnology Initiative. Nanotechnology could play a big role in the future of manufacturing.
