    Dr. Melanie Laidlaw is a scientist developing the first use of ICSI, short for intracytoplasmic sperm injection. Her collaborator, Dr. Felix Krankenthaler, turns out to have his own ideas about how to implement their new procedure. The wild card is Melanie's new lover, Menachem Dvir, a fellow scientist. This darkly comic ménage à trois plays out not only in bedrooms and labs, but also in test tubes and under the microscope. A Brave New World indeed!

    Michael Crichton's Jurassic Park may be good science fiction, but it's lousy science-in-fiction. Professor Carl Djerassi, who collaborated in producing the first oral contraceptive, talks about the "science-in-fiction" genre and how it differs from its implausible, inaccurate counterpart. Djerassi also discusses his novel, Menachem's Seed, the third volume in his science-in-fiction tetralogy (which includes Cantor's Dilemma, 1989; The Bourbaki Gambit, 1994).

    Eemer_CA says: "Wish it was a clearer recording."

Das Chemikomitee der Akademie beschließt, sich mit der Entdeckung des Sauerstoffs zu befassen, denn diese läutete die Chemische Revolution ein.
