We continue to bring you some of our favorite segments from past Distillations episodes this week. First, Bob Kenworthy tells us about senescence and how the leaves change color each autumn. Next, Michal Meyer talks with Richard Holmes—author of The Age of Wonder—from our Scientific Collaborations episode. And finally, James Voelkel takes a trip down memory lane and recalls the model rockets he and his brother used to build. Chemical Agent: Senescence.
