The second annual ESET Science Award, which this week will go to one of five finalists doing scientific work in Slovakia, will be presented by the 2017 Nobel laureate for Physics. Jonathan McCormick speaks with the Science Award's main organiser Paulína Böhmerová just ahead of Wednesday's ceremony, about the achievements of these finalists and the many people involved in the serious work of honouring them. Last week it was announced that the 2020 Nobel Prize for Physics has gone to Roger Penrose, who is known for his work not only in physics but also in the philosophy of mind. In honour of his achievement we replay an interview he did for RSI last year on the question of: What is the human mind?
