8 Big Ideas - Science at the Theater, Wednesday, October 8, 2014

At Berkeley Lab, we pride ourselves on great, socially responsible ideas. But can we explain them in a way that non-scientists can understand -- and applaud -- in only 8 minutes? The answer is yes and we will prove it on October 8 at Oakland's Kaiser Theater from 7-9 p.m. when 8 Berkeley Lab scientists take the stage to bring you the latest on everything from solar-powered vaccine refrigerators and cool roof maps to radiation pills and space dust. 

Refreshments will be served. Please RSVP here.

Sylvain Costes: Tracking and hacking personal DNA damage

Andy Westphal: Comet and interplanetary space dust

Ronnen Levinson: Cool roofs through time and space

Shashi Buluswar: A solar refrigerator
