Influencing the Environment


    We interact with our world every single day, but it’s not often that we take a step back and think about how those tiny interactions are taking a toll. Throwing a piece of trash in a recycling bin may not feel like it would have earth-shattering effects, but we visit a recycling plant where we see how trash is hurting the industry. We explore NASA’s real estate problems, take a look inside a whale’s mouth, and discuss how we may be the first people in 11,000 years to see a new epoch (think New Year, but for the world).
