What can a single bird tell us about our world? A lot—if the bird is being followed by oceans expert Carl Safina. In this hour of Science Friday we'll talk with Safina about his new book, The Eye of the Albatross and the health of the world's oceans. We'll also take closer look at the state of cod and cod fishing off the coast of New England. Plus, NASA scientists say they have new evidence for life on Mars, and they found it in a 4.5 billion-year-old meterorite.
