  • Episode Description
  • Some people read palms. Some read fortune cookies. At the Smithsonian, they do it with toothpaste tubes. Surrounded by the world's largest collection of landmark discoveries and world-changing innovations, researchers and scientists here are always looking for new ways to see into the future. Join host Tom Cavanagh for a trip in fast forward, as we explore some of the ways that science imitates ESP. Travel to New York's Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum for a look at the ways that the design of products we use every day is changing how we imagine tomorrow. Then head down to Panama City for a sneak peek at the museum of the future, the Frank Gehry-designed Museum of Biodiversity, which aims to turn the myriad ways that climate change is affecting the world's plant, animal, and human life into a living experience. Now that's forward thinking!moreless
