Reith Lectures 2010 (2)

Here is a quick heads up. The second lecture in the Reith Lecture series came out. Download it before the BBC takes it off line.

Martin Rees speaks of the challenges to science in the modern era. This lecture is aptly titled: Surviving the century.

Astronomer Royal Martin Rees explores the challenges facing science in the 21st century. Can we survive this century or will we destroy ourselves through bio-error or bio-terror? Professor Rees looks at the problems and explores some of the solutions science can provide.
