Hi Everyone,

I'm thrilled to announce my newest project with Audible:

LIGHT FALLS: Space, Time and an Obsession of Einstein.

It's an audio work -- featuring Paul Rudd as Albert Einstein together with a full cast -- that traces the dramatic story behind Einstein's greatest discovery.

Here's the link to LIGHT FALLS: adbl.co/LightFalls
And check out the behind-the-scenes clip below.

Can you build a synthetic human?
Synthetic biologists have already altered the DNA of yeast and bacteria to make organisms that better suit humanity's needs. But what happens when you start tinkering with humans themselves? At the 2016 World Science Festival program It's Alive, But Is It Life, geneticist George Church and synthetic biologist Pamela Silver discuss just what they have in mind for human cells.

MODERATOR: Robert Krulwich
PARTICIPANTS: George Church, Drew Endy, Tom Knight, Pamela Silver
Original Program date: June 4, 2016

The Kavli Prize 2016
The prestigious Kavli Prizes recognize scientists for major advances in three research areas: astrophysics, nanoscience and neuroscience—the big, the small and the complex. The 2016 winners, sharing a cash award of $1 million in each field, will be announced via live satellite from the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters in Oslo. Delivering the keynote address at the breakfast in New York is France Córdova, the director of the National Science Foundation. Following the announcement of the winners, three renowned scientists—nanoscientist Michal Lipson, neuroscientist Cori Bargmann, and astrophysicist Nergis Mavalvala—will join ABC News‘ chief health and medical editor Richard Besser for a discussion of the scientific achievements of the Kavli Laureates and provide insightful commentary on the next wave of research and opportunities within these dynamic fields.

Original program date: June 2, 2016
MODERATOR: Richard Besser
PARTICIPANTS: Cori Bargmann, Michal Lipson, Nergis Mavalvala
