Summary
In this program, scientists from various disciplines sit down together in one room-specifically, the king's library in the Royal Palace in Stockholm, Sweden. Hosted by the BBC's Zeinab Badawi, ten 2009 Nobel Laureates take part in an inspiring roundtable discussion of 21st-century physics, chemistry, medicine, and other subjects. Viewers meet molecular biologists Elizabeth H. Blackburn, Carol W. Greider, and Jack W. Szostak; biochemists Ada E. Yonath, Thomas A. Steitz, and Venkatraman Ramakrishnan; physicists George E. Smith and Willard S. Boyle; political scientist and economic theorist Elinor Ostrom; and microeconomist Oliver E. Williamson. Practical applications for science research are a major topic.
