The "Next in Water" program, presented by the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University, brought together young scientists to discuss water's vital role across four areas of modern inquiry: biology, earth science, public health, and the search for extraterrestrial life.
A group discussion and audience Q and A concludes "Next in Water."
