I must confess that I am not a scientist. I majored in philosophy and took entomology to meet my science requirement in college. I got lucky here because lice play a major role in this DVD. Instead of trying to explain everything on this DVD, I will list the major topics found on it: meteorites, asteroids, Arizona desert, Iron 60 from a supernova, DNA and RNA, Charles Darwin, precooking in volcanic vents, mutations, sensory deprivation, neuroscience and rats, PKM ZETA and hippocanthus.
If you the reader find any of these topics interesting, get this DVD, then write a review for all of the philosophy majors on Amazon.

How do you combine studying the origin of our solar system, the start of life itself, what head, body, and pubic lice tell us about human evolution, and building/erasing memories? Neil Degrasse et al manage to do it in 60 minutes, while both educating and keeping one interested every minute. It's amazing what meteorites, rat research, and lice DNA can tell us about complex, long, long ago topics.

Great visuals and reinforces the curriculum. Nova keeps up with the topics that we needs to teach effectively and grabs the attention of our students.

I'll keep it short and sweet ~ "Where Did We Come From" is every bit as enjoyable as it is informative, and well worth
watching again.

Nova science now is just an incredible series, but this is by far my favorite episode. It explains the physics of the universe and the chemistry and biology of life in a way that's understandable to children and still very enjoyable as an adult. Neil Degrasse Tyson is the man.
