Science and Technology Guests on Late Night, Week of March 20

I guess we start the week with a ‘maybe.’  On tonight’s (Monday’s) edition of @midnight, one of the guests in Dominic Monaghan.  He hosts a wilderness show called Wild Things, but given the format of @midnight (a comedic panel show that looks like a game show), it’s unlikely they will talk much about the program (or the movie he’s promoting in which he plays a worker in a nuclear power plant).

A more definite entry today was in the afternoon.  Actress, mathematician and writer Danica McKellar was on Harry Monday to discuss her latest book, Goodnight Numbers, which is aimed for a much younger set than her previous math books.

The basketball tournament continues, so there will be delays and repeats this Thursday and Friday.  Regrettably, none have notable science and technology guests to note for a repeat viewing.

This week you can see the stars of this week’s new film Life.  It is a horror film set on board the International Space Station.  Jake Gyllenhaal plays the crew doctor, and he’s on The Tonight Show.  Ryan Reynolds is also in the film, and he will chat with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday.

There are a couple of recent segments of The Daily Show worth noting.  On the March 9th episode correspondent Jordan Klepper reported on recent efforts to preserve U.S. climate data.  On March 15th, correspondent Ronny Chieng aired his latest tech segment (Today’s Future Now), which focused on the consequences of so-called ‘smart’ technology.
