Premise: Science, technology and nature are examined with insight, humor and an eye on the practical, with smartly paced reports on such subjects as the big-bang theory, robots, the relationship between stress and illness, and whether we are alone in the universe. There's a good deal of fascinating information, but as long-time host Alan Alda notes in one episode, `big questions don't always have answers.'
