This year, the Breakthrough Prize honored scientists who are teasing out the genetics of common diseases, a mathematician who solved long-standing topology problems, a team of 1370 physicists who overturned many physics theories when they proved that neutrinos can swap types, and two scientists who found a way to literally shine a new light on how the brain works.
Below you can find a playlist of all the live video streams:
These live streams are co-hosted by UC Berkeley, UC San Francisco, Stanford, and the Breakthrough Prize Foundation and are streaming on YouTube. For more information, check out Scientific American’s in-depth report.
