"Cristiana Figueras corralled nearly 200 countries to accept the Paris climate agreement. How she changed her mind set. Yeah, I actually call it stubborn optimism on what I mean is relentless, right? It's a relentless choice. It's a gritty determination to move forward, no matter what, how to stay motivated in the climate crisis. That's next time on the Ted radio Hour from NPR. Sunday nights at nine on 89.3 kpcc. This's science Friday. I'm Ira Flatow. Yeah, I know There's a lot going on this week so we can forgive you if you haven't been paying close attention to the Nobel prizes. This week, the Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine when jointly to Harvey J. Alter Michael Howden and Charles M. Rice for the discovery of the hepatitis C virus. In chemistry. Emmanuelle Charpentier of the Max Planck Institute and Jennifer Tao DNA of the University of California at Berkeley won the prize for their work on the technique known as CRISPR. Back in 2017 Doctor doubt Nous summarized the technique for us on science Friday. You can think about it almost like a pair of scissors for DNA in the cell. And the great thing about this tool is that it's programmable, so scientists can directly till the scissors where to go in the cell, Which piece of DNA to cut and Khun dude that relatively inexpensively and quickly, so it's become a very widespread technology for altering the DNA and virtually all Types itself, but it's not initially what the Nobel winners were going for. It's a great story of how curiosity driven research aimed in one direction ended up uncovering something that could be employed in a completely different way. I think that you know the way that bacteria can program Proteins to cut viral DNA and protect themselves from viral infection was the original work that we were doing. And this was AH Project international collaboration with Emmanuelle Charpentier and her laboratory and but that uncovered the mechanism that we realised could be employed in a very different way, namely, for gene editing. It's a technique that quickly took the molecular and cellular biology research world by storm. There's sort of a very important timing aspect to technologies. I would say That's true for gene editing. It was a a tool that was, you know very much the scientific community was was ready for needed a way to manipulate DNA and sells given all of the DNA sequencing that's going on now, you know, whole genomes being sequenced and more and more information about The content of genomes, and what was missing was a way to rewrite a way to manipulate that information. And when that tool became available, As you pointed out, it was very quickly adopted globally. Congratulations to Emmanuel Charpentier and Jennifer Donna. In physics. The award was split one half went to mathematician Richard Penrose for the discovery that black Hole formation is a robust prediction of the general theory of relativity. We talked about it on science Friday. Back in 2015 about the work, he and the late Stephen Hawking did on black holes matter pulled so tightly into itself by gravity. That it forms what physicists call a singularity. The thing we were trying to do was to show that the singularities first of all in the black hole, and secondly, in the Big Bang. Which people knew about already, but only in very, very special circumstances when the situation was exactly symmetrical, and the material involved didn't have any pressure, and so it's very, very special. And people didn't necessarily believe those singularities would be general things which could occur under completely general circumstances. So I've started to think about these things in terms of what you will topple AJ Ical argument. That means you don't solve equations. You use argument, quite general arguments to show that in this case, the singularity had to exist somewhere the situation that we now call a black hole in those days. They didn't even have a word for it. But where the matter collapses down past a point of no return. This point of no return was I think I called the trap surface. That it doesn't depend on any symmetry. Anything like that. It's just a point of no return that you can characterize and when it gets to that level, you can use these sort of type a logical arguments to show that somewhere in the future of that collapse There must be a singularity. What does it matter to me as an average citizen? If there are singularities out there in the Ah Well, it's not so much the single because you can't get out you see is the ones in the black holes. It's more than the black hole is a stable thing. It doesn't collapse down and the swish out again. You could imagine that if the man had collapsed in an irregular way, it might swirl around in some complicated way. Then comes switching out again. But what these arguments show is that doesn't happen. It collapses and keeps on collapsing in the same way that the symmetrical situation did and it becomes singular. Now the singularity is not accessible to us in the black hole. The big banks. Another question because, of course. That singularity is, in a sense, the origin of all the things we know about black holes, and then all of a sudden after your papers, your papers were published. Few books were written in black holes. Really caught people's imaginations. Were you surprised by the amount of public interest in your took quite a long time. I was surprised when it was actually wasn't a great deal of interest to begin with. I mean, it took. I mean, I used to go to these meetings, quote the Texas meetings on Relativistic astrophysics. I was there the first one. That was when people were just beginning to realize that you had situations which Might be something like a black hole, and it took a long time. I remember going to several of these meetings every two years or so, and each time there was a bit more interesting, a bit more interest. And it took quite a while before people really swung round and the general community believe that these objects were really likely to be there. Why do you think there's so why? Why are people so fascinated by well, eh? Pretty wild things on their on their also. I mean, now we know they're absolutely huge ones. There. Ah, you know, 10,000 million times the mass of the sun. There's absolutely whopping ones. Our galaxy has well Mrs about four million times as massive as the sun. They're now known months that which far far bigger than that new novelist Richard Penrose, the other half of the physics prize, was split between Reinhardt, Denzel and Andrea Ghez for the discovery of one of those much bigger black holes. A supermassive compact object at the center of our galaxy. We'll be talking more about that in the weeks ahead, but for now, congratulations, everybody..

President Trump's personal physician says Mr Trump is still at risk not out of the woods, as he puts it. Meantime, the White House blocks the FDA from issuing stricter guidelines on the emergency release of a potential covert vaccine.

"The Nobel Prize in medicine went to three scientists who discovered the blood borne virus. Hepatitis C. The scientists are Harvey J. Altar at the National Institutes of Health. Charles and Rice from Rockefeller University in New York. And Michael. How Tin, a British biologist at the University of Alberta in Canada. For more. We have Angela Rasmus, and she is a virologist at Columbia University. Professor in layman's terms. What did the scientists do? That was so important that they got this prize. So these three scientists all contributed immensely to our understanding that hepatitis C virus was actually a virus on does not hepatitis A hepatitis B So Harvey Altar made the observation that patients were contracting viral hepatitis, and it was not caused by either of those two other hepatitis viruses. Michael Howden discovered and clone to the virus, which was then being called non half a non had B hepatitis. And Charlie Rice was the one who finally showed that that virus is actually what causes hepatitis C viral hepatitis So together, the three of them made really important observations that allowed us to understand that this was a distinct virus. So that we could start developing drugs to treat it and so that we could start making sure that the blood supply was safe. To the World Health Organization estimates some 71 million people across the world have chronic hepatitis C rates in the US are going up right now because of the opioid epidemic. How directly did the work of these three scientists? Lead to treatment that is now saving lives. It was absolutely critical to recognize that this was a different virus. Because although hepatitis A and hepatitis B are also both viral infections, the really very different viruses from hepatitis C virus, so in order to develop targeted therapies that could effectively treat hepatitis C, we had to understand what what the virus Wass and also how that virus worked. Andi. All of their work really contributed to this because the early treatment for hepatitis C wasn't effective for treating many people the new generation of drugs that are available now Actually directly targets hepatitis C virus and in most cases actually cure people of it. But those drugs are notoriously expensive. Many people can't afford them in. In fact, 400,000 people a year still die from hepatitis C. That's true and hepatitis C is also a huge problem outside of the U. S. So there's definitely a lot more work to be done in terms of being able to get those drugs out equitably. And make them available to all the people who are affected by this virus. What is the significance to you of this prize going to something related to hepatitis C in the midst of the global covert 19 pandemic? Well, I'm always glad to see virologists being recognized for their important work. And I myself did my postdoctoral fellowships studying hepatitis C virus. One thing that's always struck me about it is how little attention it gets. There are vastly more people worldwide infected with hepatitis C virus than even HIV on DH. Yet people don't think about hepatitis C virus the same way as a pandemic disease that kills people. So it's really good. I think for the Nobel Committee to recognize That this virus is a huge global public health problem and that these three scientists made really important contribution so that we could understand it better and treat it. Well..
