A few of this 12 months’s Nobel Prize winners will make a name to area on Monday (Dec. 11), and you’ll watch on-line without cost.
Two European Area Company (ESA) astronauts — one in every of them right here on Earth and the opposite aboard the Worldwide Area Station (ISS) — will converse with current Nobel laureates in the course of the occasion. You’ll be able to watch stay right here at Area.com, via ESA Web Two, at 9:10 a.m. EST (1410 GMT) on Monday.
The dialog will embody ISS Expedition 70 commander Andreas Mogensen, astronaut Marcus Wandt (who’s scheduled to launch to the ISS early subsequent 12 months on the non-public Ax-3 mission), and 2023 Nobel laureates Ferenc Krausz and Moungi Bawendi.

“This will probably be an opportunity for 2 scientists, who’ve obtained their Nobel Prize medals the day earlier than for the discoveries of attoseconds and quantum dots, to have a dialog with astronauts,” the Nobel Prize Museum wrote of the event.
“Be part of us to listen to their views on the significance of fundamental science, how we’re continually increasing our information in regards to the universe, and the challenges of conducting experiments in area.”
Bawendi gained the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his purposes of quantum dots, that are semiconductor nanocrystals. Krausz gained the Nobel Prize in Physics with work on attosecond-scale pulses of sunshine that stimulate charged particles similar to electrons in matter. (An attosecond is simply 0.000000000000000001 of a second.)
The occasion will probably be livestreamed from the Nobel Prize Museum in Stockholm, though not all visitors of honor will probably be onsite. Mogensen is on the ISS, whereas Wandt will cellphone in from his coaching at NASA’s Johnson Area Middle in Houston.
