Today, scientists, engineers and inventors are searching for answers to some of the greatest questions of our times. They’re looking for renewable energies, cures for cancer and diabetes and are searching for a planet that, like ours, can sustain life.
Quest finds out what is happening on the frontlines of science and technology, where people are setting their sights on the stars, focusing their microscopes on the very building blocks of our universe and discovering new ways to make our world a better place to live. Be it the most recent discoveries in medical research or the latest developments in green technology Quest explores the stories that matter to you. Quest will also tackle the most important challenges facing biologists today, asking why is it that some of our most important species are disapearing? The series also goes to the heart of what causes the terrible natural disasters that impact apon the lives of millions, examining what can be done to minimise their impact.
Covering developments in astronomy, biology, chemistry, engineering, the environment, geology, health, physics and the weather, Quest delves deep into subject matter that is often inaccesible to the public, to satisfy your curiousity and to illuminate the wonders of contemporary science and research.
