Large glass facades and transparency are in demand in modern architecture, but they have a decisive disadvantage: in summer, rooms overheat quickly and in winter they're too cold. That's where the invention of Fluid Glass at the University of Liechtenstein comes in. Architecture professor Dietrich Schwarz has developed a kind of glass that as a window becomes a solar collector and indoor air conditioning system in one. The Fluid Glass prototype contains water in its middle layer. The water can be darkened with pigments. The effect is a colored glass like that in a pair of sunglasses. The pigments have the advantage that their dosage can be controlled. According to the amount of sunlight, the glass is darkened to a greater or lesser degree. If the sun disappears completely, the pigments are discharged again.

Preeclampsia is a disorder of the placenta that complicates 5-8% of all pregnancies worldwide and is the leading cause of maternal death in the developed world. It's also the leading cause of fetal growth restriction and there's no cure except to deliver the baby. Due to this fact preeclampsia is the number one cause of induced preterm delivery in the U.S. Babies that survive often spend months in neonatal intensive care and have many complications and increase risk for heart disease and diabetes later in life. In this video CIRM grantee Dr. Mana Parast, a UCSD perinatal pathologist, discusses her use of the induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cell technique to screen for drugs that might lead to a cure for preeclampsia.Also, Silvia Michelazzi, a preeclampsia survivor, and her husband Dr. Matteo Moretto-Zito share their daughter's birth story.

Arun Majumdar, Vice President for Energy at Google, discusses a variety of research opportunities and challenges in stationary power and transportation systems that could enable the transition of our energy economy to a sustainable one. Science has shown that our current course of a fossil-based economy is unsustainable. Majumdar explains that the choice that our society is asked to make is often posed as follows: Should we continue our exponential economic growth based on fossil fuels and ignore the environment, or should we reduce our greenhouse gas emissions at the cost of our economic growth? He argues that this is a false choice because it is based on extrapolating the past and does not account for the capacity of research based on science and engineering to create a new industrial revolution for a sustainable energy future.
