WHY Exercise is so Underrated (Brain Power & Movement Link)







Exercise is good for the heart and makes you look good. However, there are much more compelling reasons to exercise regularly.

The human brain is an exceedingly complex organ, and while we don’t fully understand it, it is what we have to use to understand and interact with the world around us. Research is showing that there is a very powerful connection between the nervous system and movement. Exercise has been shown to facilitate the growth of new neurons, paving the way for greater intelligence.

If this was interesting, I highly recommend checking out John Ratey’s “Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain” http://amzn.to/2iZEttT

The most mysterious star in the universe | Tabetha Boyajian







Something massive, with roughly 1,000 times the area of Earth, is blocking the light coming from a distant star known as KIC 8462852, and nobody is quite sure what it is. As astronomer Tabetha Boyajian investigated this perplexing celestial object, a colleague suggested something unusual: Could it be an alien-built megastructure? Such an extraordinary idea would require extraordinary evidence. In this talk, Boyajian gives us a look at how scientists search for and test hypotheses when faced with the unknown.

What is so special about the human brain? | Suzana Herculano-Houzel







The human brain is puzzling — it is curiously large given the size of our bodies, uses a tremendous amount of energy for its weight and has a bizarrely dense cerebral cortex. But: why? Neuroscientist Suzana Herculano-Houzel puts on her detective’s cap and leads us through this mystery. By making “brain soup,” she arrives at a startling conclusion.

Why is our universe fine-tuned for life? | Brian Greene







http://www.ted.com At the heart of modern cosmology is a mystery: Why does our universe appear so exquisitely tuned to create the conditions necessary for life? In this tour de force tour of some of science’s biggest new discoveries, Brian Greene shows how the mind-boggling idea of a multiverse may hold the answer to the riddle.

Where does gold come from? – David Lunney







View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/where-does-gold-come-from-david-lunney

Did you know that gold is extraterrestrial? Instead of arising from our planet’s rocky crust, it was actually cooked up in space and is present on Earth because of cataclysmic stellar explosions called supernovae. CERN Scientist David Lunney outlines the incredible journey of gold from space to Earth.
