Miscellaneous:  Physics of the Impossible with Dr. Michio Kaku (Podcast)
Running Time:
01:23:17
Invisibility, teleportation, mind reading—the stuff of science fiction, right? Yet much of today’s technology was once considered impossible. Given enough time, couldn’t incredible ideas like these also become commonplace? In this unique presentation, author and physicist Dr. Michio Kaku brings to life the science behind parallel universes and other fantastic phenomena. He’ll discuss the role of nanotechnology in learning to simulate invisibility, explain why NASA envisions sending “nanoships” to the stars, and reveal how nanoscience may provide an escape from the death of the universe itself.

SmallTalk:  Nature’s Playing Field: Nanotechnology and Medicine (Podcast)
Running Time:
00:30:48
Dr. Tejal Desai of UCSF talks about the intersection of nanotechnology and medicine, an area of research that has dramatic implications for the future. It could lead to artificially engineered tissues, or more effective drug delivery. It could also result in new kinds of health monitoring devices, as Dr. Thomas Murray, from the Hastings Center, explains.
