Get a fascinating perspective on failure from frontline scientists and explorers whose work involves taking calculated risks. Inspired by the article "Failure Is an Option" in the September 2013 National Geographic, a panel moderated by Marc Silver, National Geographic's deputy editor for text, will look at how risk and failure are indispensable to scientific progress. Participants include virologist Victoria Jensen, who studies dangerous viruses; herpetologist and National Geographic Emerging Explorer Zoltan Takacs, who travels the world in search of venomous snakes; archaeologist and National Geographic Fellow Sarah Parcak, who uses satellite technology to locate hidden Egyptian antiquities; extreme filmmaker and kayaker Trip Jennings, who has paddled white water to explore rivers around the world and made a first descent of the notoriously dangerous lower Congo River; and climber Peter Athans, known as "Mr. Everest" for his numerous successful ascents of that epic mountain.
