Still image from Science On The Newshour: Technology

Has the high-tech revolution enhanced or inhibited our quality of life? Reveals examples of digital technology applied in both beneficial and potentially destructive ways. Focuses on LED-based lighting, state-of-the-art sports training, nanotechnology for hydrogen fuel cells, and the computer-aided reconstruction of King Tut's true appearance. Also, looks at what some experts say are cases of technological overconfidence, such as computerized voting machines and the American military's proposed National Missile Defense System, as well as the dark menagerie of worms and viruses coursing through cyberspace. Accessibility options on the DVD are: (1) audio description, (2) expanded audio description, (3) English subtitles, (4) English subtitles in black box, (5) closed captions.
