Professor Alan Alda has a homework assignment for scientists. Yes, that Alan Alda.
The actor known for his Emmy-Award-winning work on the TV show "MASH", is a founder of the Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook University on eastern Long Island.
Alda tells the center is sponsoring a contest asking scientists to explain, in terms a sixth-grader could understand: "What is time?"
Well-known for his affinity for science, Alda is the longtime host of the Public Broadcasting Service's 'Scientific American Frontiers'.
He says society must have a better understanding of science.
