Moderated by Ransom Stephens, Ph.D.

The key to envisioning our future is understanding the answers to the problems we face today. A professor of civil engineering and history at Duke University, Henry Petroski explores the possible solutions in science and engineering to issues like climate change, natural disasters, and renewable energy sources. Is nuclear power an option? Biofuels? Battery operated cars? This book examines not only our future, but the ways that science and engineering combined in our history to create world-changing inventions like the steamship, the airplane, and stunning accomplishments like the moon landing.
