Science is about to change the world. Professor Stephen Hawking examines cutting-edge breakthroughs and their implications for the future in STEPHEN HAWKING'S BRAVE NEW WORLD. The six-part, original Canadian series returns for a second season. Hawking is joined by a crack team of scientists - including Dr. Carin Bondar and Professor Chris Eliasmith from Canada, Dr. Daniel Kraft from the U.S., and Professor Jim Al-Khalili and Dr. Aarathi Prasad from the U.K. They travel the world to investigate the latest innovations, from gecko skin-like material with adhesive qualities that mimic Spiderman's ability to scale buildings; to realistic digital avatars and the latest gaming technology that will change the face of the entertainment industry; to a 3D printer that can generate live human tissue; and a Canadian innovation using submarines for deep space training.
