This summer (2016!) we're featuring classic tales from the science storytelling event, the Laborastory.

Astrophysicist Katie Mack tells us what it was like to encounter the famous Stephen Hawking, but she also reveals her true science hero: her grandfather, Captain Sam Houston.

Then, Lost in Science's own Chris Lassig speaks at the Laborastory's annual Halloween special of science villains, with the tale of the father of the hydrogen bomb, Edward Teller.
