Why we need the explorers

Brian Cox is here. He is a scientist and public speaker in the Carl Sagan mold, and co-author of the new book "Why does E = mc2, (and why should we care)"

In this TED video, he gives examples of why we need the exploration of science. He remarks that studies have shown an ROI on Apollo of 14:1. He quotes--near the end of the presentation in a truly moving way--from Carl Sagan and Humphrey Davey on the need to keep pushing frontiers.

For PM's with projects on the cutting edge, this is a motivating and inspiring presentation by Dr. Cox.
