National Geographic Live: The Risky Science of Exploration

National Geographic >

It takes a special kind of person to plunge willingly into a subaquatic cave in Cuba, or risk his life reporting on cocaine trafficking in Jamaica, or chase venomous snakes across Vietnam. Fortunately, environmental anthropologist Kenny Broad is an extra special kind of person. National Geographic’s 2011 Explorer of the Year, Broad finds a surprising amount to laugh about as he shares stories of his triumphs, his tragedies, and his just plain weird experiences while watching science evolve to further our knowledge of the world.

This event is presented by the Seattle Symphony.

National Geographic Live: The Mystery of Our Human Story

National Geographic >

It is no exaggeration to say that paleoanthropologist Lee Berger’s 2013 discovery of Homo naledi signaled a profound shift in our understanding of human evolution. In a secret chamber of the remote Rising Star cave system near Johannesburg, South Africa, a massive collection of bones was discovered by his explorers, assisted by recreational cavers. So he rapidly assembled a team of “underground astronauts” with caving experience, scientific backgrounds and the kind of physique that could fit in a chute averaging 7.9 inches in width. What they found suggested something unprecedented — ritual burial, a practice long thought to be unique to Homo sapiens. And that was just the beginning.

This event is presented by the Seattle Symphony.
