The natural world is an amazing thing, and despite the volumes upon volumes that we know about it, we've barely scratched the surface when it comes to truly understanding our universe and the things within it. Yet just because there's so much information out there doesn't mean you shouldn't try to learn as much as you can about science. These lectures reflect information that's at the cutting edge, from medical discoveries that could change lives to astrophysical research that's expanding our knowledge of the worlds that lie beyond our own galaxy, and they can help you get an education in some of the greatest wonders the scientific fields have to offer.

The researchers suggest that the way we age is affected by changes to a part of your chromosomes called a telomere.
