Climate change is #Solvable

Anne Applebaum talks to Anousheh Ansari about balancing the carbon cycle and fighting climate change through incentivized prizes and innovation.

Anousheh Ansari was the first female space tourist, the first person of Iranian descent, and the first Muslim woman to go into space. Alongside her brother in law, she gifted a contribution to the X Prize Foundation that funded the Ansari X Prize, a cash award for the first private company to launch a reusable manned spacecraft into space within two weeks. After her mission to space, Ansari cofounded PRodea, Systems, a digital technology company, and served as the company’s first CEO.
