Journalists to discuss scientific challenges in Stevens lecture

The Center for Science Writings at Stevens Institute of Technology will host three pre-eminent science journalists to discuss "Science's Greatest Challenges." The event is free and open to the public and will be held on the Stevens campus, Wednesday, February 8, 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. in the Bissinger Room, fourth floor of the Wesley J. Howe Center. The expert panel includes Sharon Begley, science columnist, The Wall Street Journal; John Rennie, editor-in-chief, Scientific American; and Steven Petranek, editor-in-chief, Discover magazine. John Horgan, Director of the Stevens Center for Science Writings, will moderate the discussion.

The panel will cover scientific challenges such as the origin of the universe, life and human consciousness as well as immense practical problems such as AIDS and other diseases, global warming and natural disasters. As a cultural institution dependent on public confidence and support, science must also cope with the challenge of widespread misunderstanding and distrust of scientific explanations of nature and advances such as stem cells and cloning.
