The JASONs are an independent group of scientists which advises the United States Government on matters of science and technology. Comprised of the the "best and the brightest", this cadre of undeniably brilliant scientists assemble on a regular basis to perform research and advise the government on turning pie-in-the-sky ideas into reality. Author Ann Finkbeiner discusses her book and offers a look into the history and workings of this shadowy yet important group.
