I think something that surprised me was that there was a possibilty of being able to 3D print what is needed to make vaccines. In a world where labs are now creating 3D printed meat and food, being able to create vaccines in a mass-producable way opens up a whole new horizon. I think it's amazing that now we are able to use the machines that have been developed thus far to think about future generations and the accesibilty of healthcare around the world.
I think something that I would want to ask is what Mr. Rees thinks can be done to improve the relationship between politics and climate change, especially given the fear of backlash and loss of backing from politicians. We only recently got our first class here at Harvard that goes into depth between the relationship of meat and climate change because of how powerful the meat industry is -- how can we make people more proactive in learning about these topics and making the necessary changes to their life?
I agree, the potential to 3D print vaccines is very exciting! I wonder how effective 3D printing vaccines is when compared to more traditional methods. I was also interested in Mr. Rees' beliefs on the intersection of climate change and politics, especially lobbying for an industry such as the meat industry.
I didn't watch this interview with Lord Martin Rees but am equally as surprised that he mentioned the possibility of 3D printing vaccines. I think am more so interested in the implications of that technology and how it could also be incorporated in organ-banks or organ transplants.
