Video and conference
Just need to rebut that very last point Mr Tyson made before the video ended. Yes, deflecting asteroids probably takes less energy and effort than traveling to another solar system, or terraforming mars. However, those methods of colonization are not the logical first step to take. Must Watch: Bill Nye, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Pamela Gay, and Lawrence Krauss discuss our future in space
Video: Monkey brainwaves control avatar Monkeys have feelings too. In a mind-meld between monkey and computer, rhesus macaques have learned to "feel" the texture of virtual objects without physically touching a thing. In the future, prosthetic limbs modelled on similar technology could return a sense of touch to people with amputations. Using two-way communication between brain and machine, the monkeys manoeuvred a cursor with their minds and identified virtual objects by texture, based on electrical feedback from the computer.

How an Underwater "Invisibility Cloak" Makes Solid Objects Disappear Presumably if there were some sort of image in the background, you could see that this was turning the sheet into a mirror. They pass current through the wires, producing an ultra-fine sheet of air bubbles, forming on the surface of the wires. You can tell by the disturbance on the surface when the sheet is active. The significant difference in index of refraction between gas and liquid means the light reflects, exactly like when you attempt to look through the perpendicular side of a fish tank. "Sure Orville, that's kinda cool that your new plane actually flies but it didn't go very high and was only in the air for a few seconds, can it go up any higher or stay up in the air longer?"

Scientists have recorded the first experimental evidence that elephants experience "eureka!" moments Did you read the article? Yes, and it's that description that makes it seem like trial and error. If this were indeed trial and error, the elephant would of repeated those steps more times until he got the branch.
