After yesterday's big astronomy news about the Universe being 13.82 billion years old, I did a video interview about the results on Huffington Post Live with Alyona Minkovski. Because why not, here it is:

I enjoyed that; they gave me enough time to have some fun with the topic, and still (hopefully) get across the main points: Science is always learning, there is very cool stuff out there still to figure out, and science is important.


If that's all anyone walks away with after watching that, hey: I'm good.
