Inspirational, educational and glamorous—the annual Breakthrough Prize ceremony in California is attended by the world’s leading scientists, Hollywood stars, and Silicon Valley tech titans. This time, they were joined by trailblazing entrepreneurs from across Asia, as Generation T took a delegation of its honourees to attend the seventh annual “Oscars of science”.

During the three-day trip, the honourees enjoyed a packed programme in Silicon Valley, including the awards ceremony at Nasa’s Hangar One, brunch with Breakthrough founders Yuri and Julia Milner at their Los Altos Hills estate, tours of the headquarters of Facebook, YouTube and Impossible Foods, and a special Breakthrough Prize Symposium.
