With Neil deGrasse Tyson

Wednesday, August 6 at 9 p.m.
(Check your local listings as dates and times may vary.)

This broadcast looks at attempts to build a space elevator, how we
age, a new technique for finding Maya ruins, and a profile of
biologist Bonnie Bassler.

Aging
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/sciencenow/3401/01.html
Will research into "longevity genes" help us live longer and
healthier lives?

Space Elevator
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/sciencenow/3401/02.html
Can we build a 22,000-mile-high cable to transport cargo and
people into space?

Maya
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/sciencenow/3401/03.html
NASA archeologists use satellites to pinpoint ancient ruins
buried deep in the jungle.

Profile: Bonnie Bassler
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/sciencenow/3401/04.html
Her insight into how bacteria "talk" has launched a revolution
in biological and medical research.

The journey continues on the NOVA scienceNOW Web site. Watch the
entire hour-long episode online starting August 7. E-mail scientists
from the broadcast with your questions, explore a 2,000-year-old
Maya mural, read an interview with physicist and space elevator
visionary Brad Edwards, find out what all the hoopla is about SIR2
and how it can slow down aging (at least in yeast). And watch video
extras.

Also, Links & Books, the Teacher's Guide, the program transcript,
