the guy in your video says he is rethinking the "out of africa" theory and how we left africa 65,000 years ago. we left Africa about half a million years ago.

thats why i said [ ] SMP
New evidence comes around from time to time. He was discussing new evidence about the various waves of hominids (hominid != h. sapiens) leaving Africa and such. The lecture was pretty balanced, thoughtful and a decent look at the currently available evidence. Therefore, [x] SMP.

was just going through page by page looking for audio only (only got to post 120 here)

any others itt that are just audio?

(video is far too distracting to watch and resource intensive to run just for the audio while playing)

thanks for the link! very much looking forward to it

The Mystery or empty space

Cool talk about the higgs field and string theory.

This guy claims the higgs field weighs a trillion tons per cubic centimeter.

2012 Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5qlLW60wOjo

On Tuesday, March 20, 2012, over 5,000 people tuned in to the live stream of the 2012 Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate from the LeFrak Theater at the American Museum of Natural History.

Hosted by Hayden Planetarium Director Neil deGrasse Tyson, this year's debate pitted some of the experimentalists who claimed to have discovered faster-than-light neutrinos against their strongest critics, as well as other teams who are racing to test Albert Einstein's Theory of Relativity with unprecedented precision.
