Jane Goodall on hope, Pietro Barabaschi on nuclear fusion, and students push for climate in the curriculum
Last week I participated in a number of events at the STARMUS science festival. Co-founded by musician Brian May and astrophysicist Garik Israelian, the festival usually features astronauts and Nobel prize-winners talking about physics and the universe. This year, though, the festival was titled “The Future Of Our Home Planet” and included talks by Ukrainian climate scientist Svitlana Krakovska, paleoclimatologist Mo Raymo, environmental economist Nate Keohane, marine biologist Sylvia Earle, and many more.
