Maggie Koerth-Baker posted a YouTube clip of me this morning. It’s an excerpt from my performance two weeks ago at Wonderfest, the Bay Area science festival.
The entire festival was videotaped by Fora.tv. You can see the rest of my 15-minute performance here.
Also, a dialogue I moderated entitled Do Robots Make Better Astronauts? (featuring Chris McKay of NASA Ames and Kanna Rajan of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute).

I’m @sciencecomedian on Twitter. Follow me!
Thank you, goodnight!.

You can easily access all the science videos I’ve made for Time Magazine’s website at this link – the results from a search on my name (Brian Malow) at Time.com..

Tara and I created the presentation – with me doing most of the writing and her doing most of the graphics. Our friend Michael Capozzola hand-drew the final slide for us (primitive technique but effective!).
We attempt to tell a 14-billion year story in five minutes: “A Tale of Two Elements” takes us from the Big Bang to the Earth and touches on a problem that many people are not aware of – the helium shortage (a local problem). Enjoy!…
