Breakthrough Prize Foundation to Support “Big Picture Science” Podcast

The Breakthrough Prize Foundation today announced that it will be supporting the Big Picture Science podcast, in a three-year commitment.

Big Picture Science is hosted by the astronomer and author Seth Shostak and science journalist Molly Bentley, and produced by the SETI Institute. It focuses on connections between the latest science and technology research to produce an overview of the current state-of-the-art, with a particular interest in the question of extraterrestrial life and intelligence.

As well as seeking evidence of living systems and civilizations beyond Earth through its Breakthrough Initiatives programs, the Foundation is committed to increasing public engagement with this vital and fast-developing scientific quest, as well as with fundamental science in general. Big Picture Science is a leading exemplar of driving such engagement, and the Foundation is pleased to be able to support its unique voice.
