As I noted in the last post, most programs were off this week for the upcoming Christmas holiday. Amidst the repeats you could find an appearance from a Big Bang Theory actor who plays a scientist. In this case, it was Kunal Nayyar, and his October appearance was on the December 20 repeat of The Talk.
The few new episodes this week feature no appreciable science and/or technology late night content. The December 17th episode of StarTalk focused on interstellar space exploration. The main interview of the episode was with former astronaut Dr. Mae Jemison. She is Principal of the 100 Year Starship project, an effort to develop the capabilities for interstellar flight by the year 2110.
There was also another new episode of MythBusters this week, and the marathon of the series starts tonight (early Saturday) on the Science Channel. It will run for roughly 11 days.
