World Science Festival

World Science Festival Bringing together great minds in science and the arts. The World Science Festival gathers great minds in science and the arts to produce live and digital content that allows people to engage with scientific discoveries.

Through discussions, debates, theatrical works, interactive explorations, musical performances, intimate salons, and major outdoor experiences, the Festival takes science out of the laboratory and into the streets, parks, museums, galleries and premier performing arts venues of New York City and beyond.

On the Shoulders of Giants: Steven Weinberg and the Quest to Explain the World | World Science Festival

Nobel laureate Steven Weinberg was one of the world’s foremost theoretical physicists and a passionate advocate for science. Among his many influential contributions is the co-discovery of the electroweak theory that unifies electro-magnetism and the weak nuclear force, a central pillar in the Standard Model of Particle Physics.

Join Brian Greene and physicist John Preskill this Thursday, August 5th at 1:00pm EDT as they pay tribute to Steven Weinberg and his profound contributions to science.

Steven Weinberg: On The Shoulders Of Giants | World Science Festival

Remembering Steven Weinberg, 1933-2021.

In the WSF series On The Shoulders Of Giants inaugural address, Nobel Laureate Steven Weinberg explored the future of fundamental physics and what would we stand to lose if Big Science were to suffer.

https://www.worldsciencefestival.com/videos/steven-weinberg-on-the-shoulders-of-giants/

For this year’s inaugural address, “The Future of Big Science,” Nobel laureate and physicist Steven Weinberg considers the future of fundamental physics, especially as funding for basic research is reduced. Weinberg will explore physics’ small origins, starting with the discovery of the atom...

The Matter Of Antimatter: Answering The Cosmic Riddle Of Existence | World Science Festival

You exist. You shouldn’t.

Stars and galaxies and planets exist. They shouldn’t.

The nascent universe contained equal parts matter and antimatter that should have instantly obliterated each other, turning the Big Bang into the Big Fizzle. And yet, here we are: flesh, blood, stars, moons, sky. Why? Come join us as we dive deep down the rabbit hole of solving the mystery of the missing antimatter.

Science In A Polarized World: A Global Town Hall Meeting

Science is supposed to be neutral yet it has generated some of the deepest societal divides. Why? Our response to scientific information depends on psychology, emotion, peer pressure, politics, and cultural influences. How can we navigate these differences and implement smart policy in a contentious society? Watch as Brian Greene, Sir Paul Nurse and others examine the interface between the scientific process and the sometimes unscientific public. https://youtu.be/TOC633PkqII

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: Our age is marked by the proliferation of information, and yet we can’t agree. Science is supposed to be neutral, and yet it has generat...

https://youtu.be/nkfZ1TWM9Gk This song always felt more like an outer space environment, rather than on a planet, but after looking for so many outer space pics, something’s gotta give. It was also supposed to be a solo journey, but eventually, I discovered living beings. Outer space is mainly futurism, but there are some medieval pics of the past. I had hoped for a peaceful journey, but some that know the histories of some of the pictures know there is some evilness to some of the beings. That’s why the video is to be focused on the whole picture, not based on knowledge of the arts’ history. All pictures were researched 1985. Please note that search engines can be inaccurate and images can be mistagged with the wrong year. Most pictures used were in the order of the search results.
