He's not just M*A*S*H's Hawkeye Pierce. Alan Alda has hosted PBS's Scientific American Frontiers and starting tonight, Alda will be hosting a three-part series on PBS called The Human Spark. In it, Alda will explore "the nature of human uniqueness," according to the show's website, as he looks at cave wall paintings, visits primate researchers, and undergoes an MRI. "We're trying to figure out by asking a wide range of scientists — and there are different opinions on this — what makes us different from the other animals? And what made us that way?" Alda says in the Los Angeles Times.
