TYT fans have been asking for qualified people to talk about science on the show. Well, they're finally getting their wish with this week's episode of The Point:

Do liberals and conservatives have different brains? Is science in trouble in America? What is the point of 'asteroid mining'? Cara Santa Maria (senior science correspondent at The Huffington Post) leads this weeks panel to discuss these issues and more with PhD Tim Lee (scientist turned comedian), K.C. Cole (science writer, USC journalism professor), and Max Lugavere (filmmaker, musician, science journalist). Special thanks to Chris Mooney (author of 'The Republican Brain'), Linda Darling-Hammond (professor and author of 'The Flat World In Education'), and Phil Plait (The Bad Astronomy Blog) for sending in points.
