Few are more excited than planetarium director David Rabkin, who is also the museum’s director for current science and technology. Rabkin, who describes himself as “an engineer at heart,” holds a doctorate in technology and innovation management from MIT. Originally from Milton, he lives in Cambridge.
I go through different science phases, punctuated by fun novels. I went through a phase where I read a lot of biology. I was a really good physics student but a terrible biology student. It didn’t make sense to me, and that drove me nuts. But a lot of current science and technology is about biology, so I started reading. I realized that when you look at cell biology, and genetics, and evolution, there’s this incredibly elegant logic to it. I finally found the “F = ma” of biology, and then it became fascinating.
