Cambridge Science Festival - What's Your Question? - Rivers of Ice
From the high Himalayas to the poles, the world’s glaciers are melting. What does this mean for your community and our shared Earth? David Breashears presents his stunning new images of the Himalayan glaciers to mark the MIT Museum’s opening of its special exhibition by GlacierWorks: Rivers of Ice: Vanishing Glaciers of the Greater Himalaya.
Along with David Breashears, the symposium brings together scientists and community members to debate your questions about our climate, environment, water supply and much more.
