The TED Fellows Team is ecstatic to announce the remarkable individuals that comprise the 2011 TEDGlobal Fellowship class! This group of extraordinary people will join us at TEDGlobal 2011 in Edinburgh, UK. Among them you’ll find: an stellar astronomer; a Jordanian comic creator and social media entrepreneur; an artist who uses weather data to create sculptures and music; and an scientific artist who is developing a unique strain of mushroom that decomposes and remediates toxins in human tissue — just to name a few!
And if you’re interested in becoming a TED Fellow, mark your calendars for July 13, 2011 — TED2012 Fellowship applications will open that morning.
