The 21st Century's Technology Story: The Convergence of Biology with Engineering and the Physical Sciences
Susan Hockfield delivered the 2014 Godkin Lecture on the role universities will play in shaping the future. She discussed how biology combined with engineering and physical sciences can revolutionize technology and the necessity of a national movement that supports innovation and the advancement of American technology.

Unintentional "Dark Futurist", Stephen Petranek, re-visits the subject matter of his original eleven year old TED Talk and offers the audience an extraordinarily sobering look at the eight critical issues that threaten human life on Earth.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Morpheus tests NASA_s automated landing and hazard avoidance technology and an engine that runs on liquid oxygen and methane, or _green_ propellants.
This video was originally created by NASA_s Scientific Visualization Studio as part of a full-length planetarium film called _Dynamic Earth._ It was awarded first place in the video category in the 2013 International Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge, sponsored by the journal Science and the National Science Foundation.
NASA Public Affairs Officer Lori Meggs talks about the T-Cell Activation in Aging experiment with Principal Investigator and former shuttle astronaut Millie Hughes Fulford. The experiment seeks to determine why astronauts_ immune systems become suppressed in microgravity.
what to look for in the night sky during February 2014. Please rate and comment,
moon moved between NASA_s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) and the sun on January 30, 2014, giving the observatory a view of a partial solar eclipse from space.
Some notes from discussion with Prof Moriarty
1. At 5:45, that Silicon cantilevers can be used to see atoms as long as the oscillation amplitude is high. See Sugimoto et al. Nature 446 64 (2007)

SciCast is a research project run by George Mason University and sponsored by the U.S. Government to forecast the outcomes of key issues in science and technology. SciCast is based on the idea that the collective wisdom of an informed and diverse group is often more accurate at forecasting the outcome of events than that of one individual expert.
Unlike other forecasting sites, SciCast can create relationships between forecast questions that may have an influence on each other. For example, we may ask a question about the volume of sea ice in the Arctic in a given month. We may also ask a question about average temperature in this same locale or other influencing metrics. SciCast will learn from its participants how strong of a relationship these questions have to each other and will adjust their outcomes accordingly. So, if participants raise the forecasted average Arctic temperature, SciCast will instantly adjust forecasts for the corresponding level of Arctic sea ice, according to the correlations made by previous forecasters.
