A Guide to What We Don’t Know about the Universe

Jorge Cham and Daniel Whiteson have co-authored We Have No Idea: A Guide to The Unknown Universe. Jorge Cham is the creator of PHD Comics and Daniel Whiteson is a particle physicist at the University of California Irvine. In this book they explain everything we DON’T know about the Universe, from Cosmic Rays and Dark Matter to time travel and the Big Bang. Filled with their popular infographics, cartoons, and clear and entertaining explanations, this book is perfect for anyone who’s curious about science and all the big questions we still haven’t answered.

Plus, a new segment, Progressive Short, a five minute news report on issues that matter. This week, Les Jamieson talks with John Shuck about Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) that is set to expire on Dec. 31st, 2017. This is the language which allows for warrantless spying on all Americans by the NSA. According to Mr. Jamieson, there is legislation before congress to extend Section 702 and make warrantless spying legal and permanent. More information about the call to action to end this extention is found at his website, HR14.org.
