TED has announced Sarah Parcak as the winner of the 2016 TED Prize. Often described as the modern day Indiana Jones, Parcak uses infrared imagery from satellites to uncover ancient archaeological sites. A pioneer of space archaeology, she has earned acclaim for being among the first to apply satellite imaging to locate archaeological sites in Egypt.
Each year TED, the nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, awards the TED Prize to one exceptional individual and gives them the chance to conceive and launch a high-impact project—“a wish” offered to them without restriction. Parcak will receive $1 million from TED to launch her wish, and the opportunity to call on TED’s global community of innovators, entrepreneurs, and TEDx organizers to participate in fulfilling the wish.
Approximately 1,000 alumni, employees, students, and fans joined the NAS in getting the upcoming men's and women's basketball season started with excitement.
