How has the role of light in understanding the universe changed, and how is it still changing? In 2012, Serge Haroche (France) was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics, together with David J. Wineland, for his innovative work in the field of quantum optics. Their discoveries make use of the properties of light particles to create new technologies, such as ultrafast quantum computers. With The Science of Light: From Galileo’s Telescope to Quantum Physics, this Nobel laureate offers a revealing narrative about what we now know about light, from relativity theory to quantum physics, about how we have learned it and how this knowledge has led to many inventions that have changed our lives. In conversation with Rafael González.

Esther Paniagua in conversation with Nelson JiménezThe Internet is a powerful instrument, yet also a double-edged sword: it has opened up information that can be accessed cheaply and immediately, in an unprecedented transformation; but it is also a medium that, with the social media, has submitted many people to manipulation and addiction. Another unsettling aspect is that we can now no longer imagine a world without the Internet, a tool that just a few decades ago did not even exist. Esther Paniagua (Spain) is a writer and journalist who specializes in matters related to science and technology. Her brilliant and bold essay Error 404. ¿Preparados para un mundo sin internet? (2021), proposes a vision of what would happen if we were suddenly left without the Internet. How far are we from a life without connection to the web? Perhaps we are closer than we suspect. In conversation with Jesús Anturi.
