Summary
Lights Out! joins leading scientists in the lab and in the field to discover how much harm light at night may be causing and to learn about the ground-breaking steps being taken to protect ourselves. We work the nightshift at the Bruce Nuclear Power Plant, go for a ride-along with 18-wheeler truckers on a cross-continental run, and meet a New Orleans scientist who fights cancer by day and plays trumpet with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band by night. We discover that dangerous hot spots are everywhere-from the illumination in the hospital ICU to the tiny screens of our mobile devices. What can we do about an environmental hazard that we just can't seem to live without? Lights Out! ventures into the darker side of light to search for answers.
