There are a lot of thought provoking popular science talks you can watch online .. and here are some we like.
This is a new list we just started putting together – focusing on talks for a general audience (we will add one soon on primary research talks). There are so many good ones out there and its hard to be selective ; so we are adding a few we really liked …. and maybe will remove some as the list evolves. An interesting aside is how some of the things the speakers talk about as future potential of their work <5 years ago, have already come to fruition.
