Science and Technology Guests on Late Night, Week of June 15

Tonight’s StarTalk episode will focus on space and space exploration.  NASA Administrator Charles Bolden is the interview guest, and Neil deGrasse Tyson will be joined in front of the audience by Bill Nye (who usually just has a taped minute toward the end of the program) and astrophysicist Michael Shara.

The Daily Show spent part of its June 10th show on the California drought, and touched in part on the lazy coverage emphasizing some of the state’s water conservation measures (water recycling).  On the same night, The Nightly Show spent part of its program on flibanserin, the drug for female libido recently considered by the Food and Drug Administration.  Thankfully there were few mentions of ‘lady Viagra’ or ‘female Viagra,’ which is a gross oversimplification of the matter.

The offerings this week are thin (though the Thursday guest for The Daily Show hasn’t been announced).  Today on The Talk there was another appearance by the show’s technology correspondent, Chi-Lan Lieu.  Wednesday former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer visits Conan O’Brien, but talk may focus on his ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers basketball team.
