Welcome to Why Sci? – Exploring the Frontiers of Science

At OPEN, we are excited about the limitless possibilities of science and technology, yet ever more fearful of its misuse. Our “Why Sci?” series is your gateway to the exciting world of scientific exploration, discovery, and the many civilization-changing innovations that come from it.

In WhySci? you will hear directly from leading scientists, subject matter experts, and thought leaders who are shaping the future of our world through their groundbreaking research and collaborations.

Why Sci? is more than just a series of interviews; it’s an exploration of the why and how behind some of the most fascinating scientific endeavors of our time. Whether you’re a curious student eager to learn, or an educator seeking to inspire the next generation of scientists, this series offers you an insider’s take on the driving forces behind the advancements that are transforming our lives, life on planet Earth, and beyond.

Join us as we engage with visionaries, scientists, and engineers seeking to uncover the mysteries of the universe, and decode the secrets of genetics and consciousness.

Prepare to be inspired, informed, and captivated by the wonders of science, and made aware, and in time hopefully better prepared to deal with the dire threats that may be unleashed by unwise and self-serving business and political interest groups,…or by the law of unintended consequences.

Welcome to Why Sci? – where curiosity and the pursuit of knowledge meets the limits of human capacities to contend with the outcomes.

Together, with a dose of wisdom, imagination, and restraint by our leaders and captains of industry, and a far more informed and scientifically-literate global public, we just might unlock the potential of science to shape a brighter future for all.
