Coming Soon!!!

This netcast explores the rapidly changing world of biotech, with a penchant towards getting a better understanding of who we are and where we are going. The living world will soon be a true substrate for engineering. Our world will change, and so will we. 
We bring a first hand account from the scientists that are moving us into this new technological era: the era of biotech.

    FiB Episode 023 - From Gemini to Mars with Dr. Buzz Aldrin

    Dr. Buzz Aldrin talks about Gemini 12, Apollo 11, and the future of space exploration

    Host: Marc Pelletier

    Guest: Dr. Buzz Aldrin

    I thought I would try an experiment this week, since there are so many great science and technology stories outside the area of biotech. Yes indeed I admit - there are! Sure, we are in the midst is a biotech revolution. And yes, there will be many great biotech stories to come. But after a discussion with our Chief TWiT Leo, he and I agreed that it would be fun to venture into new areas science and technology that are in rapid development.

    As always - in the tradition of FiB - we bring you a true first hand account. Our guest played a key role in one of humanity's greatest scientific and technological achievements, for which he won the Presidential Medal of Freedom. He, together with Neil Armstrong and Michael Collins completed the first manned mission to the moon. He as sharp as nails, and one of the nicest guys you could meet. He is also in a movie that is coming out this month, presented by Ron Howard entitled: "In the Shadow of the Moon", definitely a must see - in HD!!!

      I like reading information on the internet from the online books and from the articles. And i believe that we should take advantage from the information that is provided online in the articles and we don't need to search for it so much. This article is quite informative and it helps ...

      Every episode of FIB is worth of watching it and I really found this a good show to have some good knowledge about the outer space. This is very thrilling to know about what is above on the mars.

    buzz aldrin. very exciting.

    going into space on futures in biotech is an obvious transition. i just listened to fib24 and if they find evidence of life on mars... that's the future of biotech.

    thanks marc.
