Why Evolution Is True

I’m putting up three videos about the Mars rover that will land in August.  If you are too harried to watch more than one, watch the first 5-minute video—an amazing testimony to the powers of science, engineering, and the sheer tenacity and keenness of human thought. It shows, with interviews, how they figured out how to land the fourth Mars rover, this one called “Curiosity” (a great name!). Curiosity is scheduled to touch down on the red planet in 43 days.

And here are two videos showing why they’re sending it, and what they hope to find out:
