"This talk will be a quick ride through the history of science and technology for the last 65 years. I had the tremendous luck to come of age as a scientist as World War 2 ended in 1945, at exactly the moment when four simultaneous revolutions were beginning. The four revolutions were space, nuclear energy, genomics, and electronic computing. I happened to be at the right places at the right times, and to know the right people, so that I had front-seat views of the revolutions as they happened. I was lucky enough to make a modest contribution to two of them. I will describe how the revolutions started, how they slowly transformed the world during the past half century, and how they are still transforming it today. My tentative verdict is the following: nuclear energy was a flop, computing was an overwhelming success, space and genomics are just now starting to show what they can do." - Professor Freeman Dyson, Professor Emeritus of Physics Institute for Advanced Studies Princeton, New Jersey Sponsored By: Physics (Department of)
