NOVA Science Now

David Pogue, popular technology reporter for The New York Times, takes the helm for Season 6 of the WGBH Boston-produced series, taking viewers on a six-week journey of provocative, themed episodes that feature the latest scientific breakthroughs that could contribute to a better understanding of ourselves and our place in the world.

Each week, NOVA scienceNOW tackles a new theme with four intriguing stories on every topic. In “How Smart Can We Get?” Pogue finds out how the anatomy of his brain measures up to Albert Einstein’s; “What Are Animals Thinking?” finds the tech-savvy host racing against homing pigeons without the aid of his iPhone’s GPS; and Pogue tries to outsmart a polygraph in “Can Science Stop Crime?”
