Meet astronomer Michelle Thaller in this video profile from NOVA’s “The Secret Life of Scientists & Engineers.” Michelle studies binary systems and the life cycles of stars in the universe, a science that requires enormous imagination. She sees a great drama in the lives of these stars. In her spare time, she pursues another form of drama as an Elizabethan-period dancer at Renaissance events. This resource is part of the NOVA: Secret Life of Scientists & Engineers Collection.
