Entomologist May Berenbaum of the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, admits that as a child she was terrified of insects. While astrophysicist Richard McCray of the University of Colorado, Boulder, was working with Soviet scientists during the Cold War, he had to face another kind of chilly atmosphere: a Moscow winter in an empty, unheated office building. Those are two personal highlights from this set of audio interviews with members of the National Academy of Sciences. During the hourlong chats recorded last year, eight academy scientists discuss their backgrounds, interests, inspirations, and concerns. Check back later this year for interviews with another eight scientists.
