What is Science?

What is Science?

What is Science?  How does it work? What questions does it ask and answer? How should we approach scientific information? This video starts from the basics.  How is science defined and what are some of the misconceptions about it? What makes it different from other ways of looking at the world? From thought experiments to skepticism to confirmation bias, scientists discuss what we are doing when we do science.
