HASH(0x9d6efad4) out of 5 stars Neil deGrasse Tyson Explains Where We Came From in 60 Minutes Jan. 26 2013

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.
HASH(0x9d6efcfc) out of 5 stars Excellent, As Usual July 15 2013
By Loyd Eskildson - Published on Amazon.com
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.

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.
