For TED2015, we're on a quest to magnify both facets. We will seek to challenge and reshape our core beliefs about today's reality. And at the same time celebrate the thinkers, dreamers and mavericks who offer bold new alternatives. Welcome to ... Truth and Dare.
This is a near-live screening of brand new TED Talks from the TED 2015 Conference in Vancouver. This event is open to the public and there is no charge to attend.
4-6pm: OUT OF THIS WORLD
-Alan Eustace leapt to Earth from the edge of the stratosphere wearing only a spacesuit, shattering skydiving records and potentially revolutionizing the commercial space industry.
-Fred Jansen: As manager of the Rosetta mission, Fred Jansen is in charge of the project that could be instrumental in uncovering clues to the origins of life on Earth.
-Sara Seager’s research led to the first discovery of an atmosphere on a planet outside our solar system. Now she’s on the hunt for a twin Earth.
-Nathalie Cabrol:To determine how life might persist on Mars, Nathalie Cabrol explores one of Earth’s most extreme environments: high-elevation Andean lakes and deserts.
-Stephen Petranek untangles emerging technologies to predict which will become fixtures of our future lives -- and which could potentially save them.
