Science and Technology Guests on Late Night, Week of July 25

Once again, The Daily Show does not have its full week lineup available (nothing announced for Thursday right now), so there may be a late addition.

Tonight one of the hosts of the U.S. edition of Top Gear, Rutledge Wood, will appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live.  I’m cautiously optimistic some car technology will be discussed, especially since Wood is considered the ‘expert’ on the show.  However, the best science and technology content tonight will come from Brian Cox – the British scientist (not the British actor).  His series, Wonders of the Universe, will start on The Science Channel this Wednesday, and Cox will speak with Stephen Colbert tonight.  The Colbert Report will have Missy Cummings, Director of the Humans and Automation Lab at MIT, on Wednesday night.
