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

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

Stewards of the Earth: Hope for our Planet
We’ve assembled an all-star group of ecologists, naturalists, and creative thinkers for an urgent but hopeful conversation about the environmental pressures bearing down on Earth’s rich spectrum of species. Join legendary oceanographer Sylvia Earle and some of the most insightful, effective, and vocal champions of sustainability, for a wide ranging discussion about solutions to the rapidly declining biodiversity on our planet.  It’s a rallying event about the very future of life on Earth.

We apologize for the audio quality but find the science content too valuable to not post.
