Caltech historian of science, Dr. Kevles, lectures on his new book in which he recounts the recent history of the controversy over the research of Nobel Laureate David Baltimore. When a Congressional ethics committee investigated Thereza Imanishi-Kari and her co-author David Baltimore for scientific fraud, did they simply find what they were looking for? Kevles uses the Baltimore case to talk about the broader issues of fraud in science, the misunderstanding of how science really works, and how truth cannot be discovered in the court of public opinion.
