Life's Really Big QuestionsStreaming Video - 2011
There are certain questions that, universally, we agree are "big". The ones that don't have easy answers; the ones that have been theorized, researched, pursued, and chronicled...for centuries. In Life's Really Big Questions, a part of the PBS Scientific American Frontiers series, host Alan Alda meets with scientists tackling some of the biggest questions of the times: is there other life in the universe? Why did animals suddenly appear on Earth after only microbes had existed for billions of years? What made humans different from preceding life forms? Will robots one day surpass humans in intelligence? The program provides an in-depth look at the evolutionary questions of mankind and the experts that have dedicated their lives to finding the answers.
