FORA.tv Presents: Nobel Laureates in Conversation

On Monday, the 2012 Nobel Prizes were awarded for outstanding contributions in the fields of literature, medicine, physics, chemistry, economics, and peacemaking.

In each science category, prizes were awarded jointly to two individuals for work in areas such as quantum physics and cellular programming. Chinese author and storyteller Mo Yan won the Nobel Prize in Literature, and sparked a minor controversy over his   statements concerning “necessary censorship” in his acceptance speech in Stockholm.

On the same day in Oslo, The European Union won the Nobel Peace Prize for “for over six decades contributed to the advancement of peace and reconciliation, democracy and human rights in Europe.”

Now on FORA.tv, watch Nobel laureates in conversation and in lectures across a number of disciplines in our new series titled Nobel Prize Winners. 

From the series: 2004 Nobel Prize winner Frank Wilczek helps debunk the danger of the Large Hadron Collider, which some believe could create a unstable black hole that would destroy our existence– with an emphasis on unstable.
