Kate Harris

Between sneaking illegally across Tibet, studying the history of science at Oxford, and staring down a microscope for a doctorate at MIT, Kate Harris realized that she didn't have to launch to the planet Mars to feel a sense of discovery. Weaving adventure, history, and reflections on her travels, Harris explores the meaning of "exploration" on our mapped and tamed world in this talk about her bicycle journey on the Silk Road.
