Abstract:

This episode of NOVA scienceNOW looks at NASA's LCROSS (Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite); joins microbiologist Jack Griffith on a hunt for the oldest organic molecules on earth; asks what the songs of zebra finches can tell us about human language; and profiles climatologist Lonnie Thompson, a recent winner of the prestigious National Medal of Science, who has been drilling tropical ice cores at high elevations since 1976. For more than 30 years, glaciologist Lonnie Thompson has been collecting ice. Why? Because cores of ice from high mountain glaciers contain significant data about past climate change, which can be useful in helping us combat current climate change. All told, Thompson has worked in 15 countries on five continents, helping to build an invaluable archive dating back 700,000 years.
