    Alan Alda in Scientific American Frontiers [#1406] Coming to America Who were the first Americans, and when did they arrive? Did they get here by land or sea? Did a single group populate the continent, or did many? Experts used to agree that the first Americans walked across the Bering land bridge from Asia about 12,000 years ago, then found their way south, eventually colonizing all of North and South America. But exciting recent finds at sites on both continents have triggered new theories. Alan Alda tries to find out who's saying what, and why. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
  • 7:00 am
    Atlantic Crossing: A Robot's Daring Mission Visionary oceanographer Scott Glenn leads a team of passionate and daring scientists as they race against time to launch the first autonomous underwater robot across the vast and dangerous Atlantic Ocean. Destined for Spain, the 8-foort bright yellow robot named RU27, or "Scarlet," is launched off the coast of New Jersey. Throughout her journey, data collected by Scarlet is fed into oceanographic navigation and forecasting models. Engulfed by the powerful ocean, our robot hero faces extreme weather conditions, ship traffic and aggressive sea life that can terminate her mission. With limited power and never before tested hardware, Scarlet faces daunting challenges. Fighting currents and storms, she breaks world records. When unknown ocean organisms begin attaching to Scarlet, scientists risk their lives in the high seas of the mid-Atlantic to free her of biological growth. If Scarlet can successfully cross the vast Atlantic Ocean, her historic mission will inspire a future robotic oceanographic observation network critical for monitoring and predicting climate change. The robot hero, "Scarlet" now has her own exhibit in the Smithsonian Museum's Ocean Hall. "Atlantic Crossing" has been screened at the Liberty Science Center, Smithsonian Museum, NOAA and US State Department as well as 8 international film festivals. duration 57:02   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
  • 8:00 am

It is pieced together by a wide array of archival footage, stills and recordings, recollections from other mathematicians - including the three others responsible for solving H10 - and warm reminiscences by her sister/biographer, Constance Reid. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
