Challenging LimitsStreaming Video - 2014
This episode looks at how we refused to accept ignorance, discovered science and transformed our lives, driven by curiosity about the world around us. From antibiotics to cancer treatment, from falling apples to the Higgs Boson, we've asked questions about how our universe works, and used the answers to increase our comfort, improve our health and to save lives. We transformed the existence of millions with the discovery of the lens and at the same time laid the foundations for crucial developments in medicine, biology and physics. This program shows how we've seen the invisible, known the unknown, and understood the incomprehensible.
