Dr. Universe, a peripatetic science journalist helps answer some of life’s great mysteries, like, “Who invented language?” and “What makes people ticklish?”
Starting in the late 1990s, Dr. Universe has answered questions from kids around the world about science, research, and the world around us. Dr. Universe has been on a long sabbatical, but plans to return soon to write newspaper columns, blog posts, a comic, and other vehicles, hopefully around the world.
