We know you're curious. Curious about the universe, the environment, technology, and nature. Curious about animal intelligence and space travel and the human brain. Now, our research team wants to harness the power of all that curiosity to discover new story ideas for NOVA scienceNOW. So, tell us: What's your big question?
Our NOVA and NOVA scienceNOW Facebook and Twitter followers have already taken on the challenge. They're curious about everything from the soul to nanotechnology to energy--especially energy. Here are their big questions in a Wordle:
Some of the questions they've raised:
Tama Smith Filipas How does the variety of marine life living right on the thermal vents in the deep sea suvive and thrive?
Devon Kyle Why is there "something" rather than "nothing"... Has "nothing" ever even exisited???
Nicole Thomas I'd love to hear about the search for Earth-like exoplanets.
Leon Landry Is hydrogen a viable energy sources. Can we actually do artificial photosynthesis efficiently?
Robb Smith I'd like to see some segments on geo-engineering. Can we use it to control climate change? Can we use it to control extreme weather? Is terraforming Mars or an exoplanet even a remote possibility?
Ravi Narine Will we ever be able to leave our solar system?
Ryan Munkwitz Where happens to matter that enters a black hole?
Join the conversation: Let us know what your big question is, and you just might see it answered--or at least get to meet the scientists who are working every day to answer it--on NOVA scienceNOW.
