This week on Innovation Hub: towering figures. Writer Alexa Clay tells us the surprising lessons about ingenuity we can learn from pirates, hackers, gangsters, and camel milk traders. Then Professor John Ochsendorf takes us on a tour of world architecture, and explains how, in some ways, classical architects were far more advanced than their modern counterparts. Author Declan Fahy talks about a new breed of celebrity scientist, and why they’re influencing public perception and public policy. And NOVA producer Paula Apsell will give us an inside look at how those scientists become celebrities.
