His years of working on Scientific American Frontiers has helped Mr. Alda to understand that “It’s not that science replaces mystery with knowledge or some intellectual crisp killing slicing and dicing. Every time a mystery is explored and we think we understand that mystery better, there's a hundred new mysteries so science is not a way of eliminating mystery, it’s a way of producing more. And we'll never, I don't know if we'll ever get to the bottom.”
For more than half a century, Alan Alda has been in show business. As an actor, writer and director of plays, movies, books and television programs, he has charmed, inspired, informed and challenged his audiences.
