Harvard professor Lisa Randall, who studies theoretical particle physics and cosmology, joins Aloud to read from and discuss her new book, Knocking on Heaven's Door: How Physics and Scientific Thinking Illuminate the Universe and the Modern World.

From the Aloud website:

With excursions into culture and public policy, a theoretical physicist named one of Time Magazine's "100 Most Influential People" explores how we decide which scientific questions to study, how we go about answering them, and how science might radically revise our understanding of the world.
Randall will be joined in conversation by the author and producer Lynda Obst.
