Breakthrough  科技新突破

by Ivy Liu

NGC and GE have teamed up together to explore the innovations being brought to life by scientists.

  Technology advances at such an alarming rate that cutting-edge innovations are now considered commonplace in our daily lives. As a result, we have become desensitized to how life-changing they truly are. A new collaboration between National Geographic Channel (NGC) and General Electric (GE) premiering this month will remind you of the mind-blowing nature of scientific breakthroughs. The partnership presents Breakthrough, a collection of stories behind top scientists and their research advancements.
  Breakthrough looks at the discoveries being made in science that will help solve the many problems the planet currently faces. It also delves into the imaginations and passions of the scientists who work to turn their visions into reality. The International Space Station, supercolliders, smart homes, smart cars, and playgrounds are all examples of the technological revolutions taking place before our eyes. Some of the greatest storytellers of our time are here to capture the unfolding wonders. Six leading visionaries from Hollywood—Paul Giamatti, Ron Howard, Brett Ratner, Peter Berg, Angela Bassett, and Akiva Goldsman—directed the first few hour-long episodes. Each filmmaker explores the current breakthroughs in brain science, longevity, pandemics, water, energy, and cyborg technology.
  One of the show’s producers, Brian Grazer, said, "GE’s involvement brings a certain poetic justice to this endeavor." It does in a way because Thomas Edison and Alexander Graham Bell, GE’s founder and a founding member of the National Geographic Society respectively, are two of the world’s greatest inventors. Their breakthroughs and contributions paved the way for further innovation that inspired generations of scientists and engineers. Every episode of Breakthrough will undoubtedly possess that same spirit.
