This video lecture explores the chemistry of the hordes of molecules in the interstellar medium revealed by radioastronomical observations of our galaxy. Extremely fast reactions result in the high abundance of complex organic compounds in the space between the stars. The chemistry of the interstellar medium illustrates that complex synthesis occurs under totally abiotic conditions. The specific reactions ... Full description.

In this lecture, an ecologist shares photos and video clips as he explains biological and geological changes he has observed at an undersea volcanic ridge 2,500 meters deep in the Pacific Ocean. The ongoing studies from 1991 of this unique natural deep-sea laboratory are dramatically altering views of the rates at which many biological and geological processes are occurring on the face of the planet. ...

In this lecture, an oceanographer describes studies that he and a team of scientists conducted exploring historical human-caused changes to various marine ecosystems. The historical analysis helps us understand ecosystems and how to fix them. A highlight of the talk is the presentation of a new short film called Rediagnosing the Oceans, cowritten by the speaker. The speaker explains how he believes ... Full description.
