Rusty Schweickart
Astronaut
The Asteroid Threat over the next 100,000 years
on: Long Now Foundation
The epitome of long-term thinking is to take seriously the protection of the Earth from massive asteroid impacts, which in the past have extincted as much as 90% of life on Earth. Rusty Schweickart details graphically the results of his research on asteroid impact frequency and damage, along with what it will take to find and deflect future threatening asteroids.

Darrell Jan
California Institute of Technology, NASA
NASA Life Sciences Research In Bioengineering
on: Caltech
Dr. Darrell Jan, AEMC Project Manager, Biomedical and Environmental Technologies at JPL, presented this lecture as part of the 0.1 Seminar series. He gives an overview of the current efforts to leverage advances in microelectronics and biotechnology toward future NASA missions, which will require technologies that enable humans to live and function effectively in space for much longer periods and with reductions in size, mass, and power.

The Pleasure of Finding Things Out

Speaker: Richard Feynman
Time: 50 minutes

Fifty minutes of PURE Feynman! This is the original Horizon Nova interview - essential for any Feynman fan... and for everyone else too!
THE PLEASURE OF FINDING THINGS OUT was filmed in 1981 and will delight and inspire anyone who would like to share something of the joys of scientific discovery. Feynman is a master storyteller, and his tales -- about childhood, Los Alamos, or how he won a Nobel Prize -- are a vivid and entertaining insight into the mind of a great scientist at work and play.
'The 1981 Feynman Horizon is the best science program I have ever seen. This is not just my opinion - it is also the opinion of many of the best scientists that I know who have seen the program... It should be mandatory viewing for all students whether they be science or arts students.' - Professor Sir Harry Kroto, Nobel Prize for Chemistry
