Season 2 / Episode 1 and airs on 03 May 2017 02:00
Breakthrough provides a thought-provoking and imaginative perspective on scientific discovery as it unfolds, revealing the world of tomorrow…today. Each episode follows scientific explorers working on cutting-edge projects with breakthrough potential. Each breakthrough will help us see the world in a different way and display the potential of new ideas and solutions to register change – transformative tools that solve pressing problems, like developing an Ebola vaccine, finding a way to stop brain seizures, or bringing a new method of collecting water to an African village devastated by drought.
New lifesaving tools that will be used to fight viruses in the near future; a revolutionary way to introduce a vaccine into a common cold virus; finding an antibody treatment for viral hemorrhagic fevers, including Ebola.
Advances in science are fusing biology and technology to make us better, stronger, faster and smarter; manipulating our genetic code; building exoskeletons that give super strength; giving hope to people with traumatic spine injuries.
Reliance on fossil fuels is leading us into a global energy crisis. If we act now, developments in energy production could avert disaster and usher in a new era of clean, safe energy.
Looks like something went completely wrong!
But don't worry - it can happen to the best of us,
- and it just happened to you.
