A Science Reporter With a License to Wonder

From an Inside the Times column by Emmett Lindner headlined “A Science Reporter With a License to Wonder”:

Since 2000, Kenneth Chang has covered a lot of news for The New York Times — worldly and extraterrestrial. As a science reporter, Mr. Chang has stood by at NASA launch sites, waiting for rockets to lift off to the moon. (They sometimes don’t.) He has profiled a chemist with onstage ambitions. And he has spoken with experts about the advancements this month in nuclear fusion, the effort to reproduce the sun’s power in a lab — and what that might mean for the future of energy.
