In that light, science owes a debt of gratitude to TED talks for their long-lasting commitment to science literacy. In conclusion, I end with some of my favorite youtube videos by the likes of the Sagan Series and others who have combined digital media to make mind blowing clips of science for the public. Well done to all.
I especially like this next one below, entitled Life looks for Life, which embodies the search for extraterrestrial life. But it also embodies in a smaller way the very theme of this blog and one of the great rules of Life - Out of Many, One. Life is always looking to form symbioses with other beings, even on our own planet.
