Full Event Details & Lineup

TEDxSF 2010 : The Edge of What We Know
From where we stand as humans, at the scale that we are, we push the edges of our knowledge from the inside out. Join TEDxSF as we explore the very small (the nano, the microbial, ants) and the unimaginably large (supernovae, black holes). We will push your senses spanning what you see to how you perceive and explore how that impacts what we know about.
