About this event:
Join us when WTTW11 and NOVA present a fascinating evening with David Pogue and Paula Apsell.
Invisibility cloaks. Spider silk that is stronger than steel. Plastics made of sugar that dissolve in landfills. Self-healing military vehicles. Smart pills and micro-robots that zap diseases. Clothes that monitor your mood. What will the future bring, and what will it be made of?
In NOVA's four-hour series, 'Making Stuff,' popular New York Times technology reporter David Pogue takes viewers on a fun-filled tour of the material world we live in, and the one that may lie ahead. Get a behind-the-scenes look at scientific innovations ushering in a new generation of materials that are stronger, smaller, cleaner, and smarter than anything we've ever seen. Pogue is joined by Paula Apsell, Executive Producer of NOVA in a lively discussion. This program is preceded by an excerpt from NOVA: Making Stuff II.
