Popis epizódy
In mid-October the ESET Science Award – now in its third year – was presented to the winners in three categories after a week-long series of special events held in Bratislava. One of the main features of those events was the presence of the 2017 Nobel laureate for Physics, Kip Thorne, who is serving as chairman of the international jury making the final decision as to the Awardees. But how did this Nobel prize winner end up getting involved in this relatively unknown award? Jonathan speaks with Anton Zajac, the main force behind the founding of the award, about this interesting story.
