Science and Technology Guests on Late Night, Week of March 28

With just two three games left in the men’s college basketball tournament, all late night schedules have returned to what passes for normal.

The big night this week is Tuesday.  On The Daily Show, Dr. Miguel Nicolelas from Duke University will discuss his new book Beyond Boundaries.  Nicolelas works in neuroscience, and the book appears to focus on man-machine interfaces.  After that you can watch Stephen Colbert exhibit hypochondria over Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.  If you are willing to stay up even later (or put your video recorder through its paces), Dr. Sanjay Gupta, who has been covering much of the goings-on in Japan for CNN, will visit with Craig Ferguson.

If there is a theme this week, it comes in short pants.  Tonight anthropologist/primatologist Mireya Mayor will appear on Chelsea Lately.  Also tonight, Jeff Musial will appear with Jimmy Fallon.  He’s a more traditional animal expert, associated with an animal education outfit in New York State.  (ETA) And “Jungle” Jack Hanna from the Columbus Zoo will make one of his many visits to see Dave Letterman.  On Thursday, Piers Gibbon visits Stephen Colbert to discuss his National Geographic special on headhunters.  Gibbon lists studies in human sciences in his National Geographic bio.
