I just got a note that tonight's (Monday May 10) episode of Discovery Channel's "How the Universe Works" is about extreme stars, and once again the episode is infected with interviews of me. Although the interview I did for it was about a year ago, I do remember waving my hands a lot and talking about massive stars chewing through their fuel and exploding. Expect the usual bombast, and check your local listings.
