Somewhere in between Aerosmith and the Jonas Brothers, UC Berkeley’s very own Steven Chu managed to merit a profile in the newest issue of Rolling Stone.

The profile paints the Nobel Laureate, professor and Lawrence Berkeley National Lab director-turned Secretary of Energy as a Washington outsider faced with the challenges of dealing with the nation’s global warming and energy crisis. It also touches on a few of Steven Chu’s more “Berkeley” qualities, such as his insistence on relying on his $5,000 bike for transportation rather than owning a car.
