Join Physics Girl (Dianna Cowern) and Robot Queen (Simone Giertz) on the red carpet at the 2018 Breakthrough Prize Ceremony as they interview celebrities of science, Silicon Valley and Hollywood. The recipients of the 2018 Breakthrough Prizes in Life Sciences, Fundamental Physics and Mathematics were presented to the public on December 3, 2017 at a gala awards ceremony at NASA’s Hangar 1 in Mountain View, California. The event was hosted by Morgan Freeman, with a live performance by Wiz Khalifa and musician Nana Ou-Yang, and presentations from Mayim Bialik, Lily Collins, Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, Katie Ledecky, Kerry Washington, John Urschel, Miss USA Kára McCullough, Susan Wojcicki, Kevin Systrom, Sam Altman, Demis Hassabis and the founders of the Breakthrough Prize. The event was produced by Vanity Fair and Don Mischer Productions and broadcast live on National Geographic, Facebook and YouTube. Learn more about the Breakthrough Prize at
