Martian Food-The UA Controlled Environment Agriculture Center
 
01:45
Gene Giacomelli, director of the University of Arizona Controlled Environment Agriculture Center (CEAC), was excited to share the same challenges in growing crops as the fictitious Mr. Watney experienced while stranded on Mars, as depicted in the book and recently released movie, "Martian". The NASA funded research has a mission to develop systems for growing plant food in harsh environments such as distant planets like Mars. CEAC created a prototype environment, the Lunar Greenhouse, which provides the perfect combination of heat, light and humidity so plants will grow. Red and blue led grow lights, a combination that produces an intense magenta cast and lack any green component optimize both energy and plant growth, key to plant survival where resources are scarce. The Lunar Greenhouse also uses a hydroponic system to deliver water and nutrients directly to the plant roots. This is a serious consideration for space travel to alien worlds that lack proper soil. Giacomelli, however, theorizes that the soil on Mars could be used in a closed environment to support plant growth, given the proper hydration and nutrient supplements. Giacomelli is a big fan of Matt Damon, who portrays the stranded botanist in the film. He acknowledges that Mr. Watney is fortunate to have a background in mechanical engineering and botany, a rare combination, “except for people coming through our educational program here at the University of Arizona, Controlled Environment Agricultural Center”.

Astronomical Alchemy: The Origin of the Elements
 
01:04:32
Dr. Philip A. Pinto, Associate Professor, Astronomy/Steward Observatory, University of Arizona. One of the greatest achievements of twentieth-century science is an understanding of the origin of matter. While hydrogen and helium were produced in the Big Bang, the origin of the heavier elements—the silicon in rocks, the iron in our blood, and the oxygen we breathe--lies in the lifecycle of stars. Nuclear reactions, which transform light elements into heavier ones, cause stars to shine and ultimately to explode, seeding the universe with their production. These newly formed elements, the building blocks of ordinary matter, play a central role in the formation of planets and the evolution of life. Presented Feb. 22, 1011. Cosmic Origins is the story of the universe but it's also our story. Hear about origin of space and time, mass and energy, the atoms in our bodies, the compact objects where matter can end up, and the planets and moons where life may flourish. Modern cosmology includes insights and triumphs, but mysteries remain. Join the six speakers who explore cosmology's historical and cultural backdrop to explain the discoveries that speak of our cosmic origins. http://cos.arizona.edu/cosmic/

Education For Whom and For What?
 
01:59:28
Noam Chomsky, a world-renowned linguist, intellectual and political activist, spoke at the University of Arizona on Feb. 8, 2012. His lecture, "Education: For Whom and For What?" featured a talk on the state of higher education, followed by a question-and-answer session. Chomsky, an Institute Professor and a Professor Emeritus of Linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he worked for more than 50 years, has been concerned with a range of education-related issues in recent years. Among them: How do we characterize the contemporary state of the American education system? What happens to the quality of education when public universities become more privatized? Are public universities in danger of being converted into facilities that produce graduates-as-commodities for the job market? What is the role of activism in education? With unprecedented tuition increases and budget struggles occurring across American campuses, these are questions that are more relevant than ever.

Time Traveling: What Our Brains Share with Beetle Brains
 
01:21:19
Nicholas J. Strausfeld, PhD, Director, Center for Insect Science and Regents' Professor of Neuroscience Emerging evidence suggests that distantly related animals such as mice and flies manifest similar behaviors because they have genealogically corresponding brain centers. The view is that a common ancestor had already evolved circuits for behavioral actions, memory of such actions, and their consequences more than half billion years ago. Evidence that those circuits have been inherited through geological time challenges how we as a species relate to animals that we view as wholly different from ourselves.

This video was created by students at Sequoia School for the Deaf in Mesa, AZ in an effort to inform Deaf and Hard of Hearing youth that people one meets online may not be who they seem to be. The dialog is in American Sign Language (ASL) which is the language of communication at the school. Deaf and Hard of Hearing students rarely see people using ASL in the media, and this video was designed to send the message about Internet danger and also to make it easier for this students to identify with the characters portrayed in the video. The project was initiated by Sheri Bauman, Ph.D. associate professor in the University of Arizona Department of Disability and Psychoeducational Studies in the College of Education, and Heather Pero, school counselor at Sequoia with support from the school's administration. Staff and students involved in the project are acknowledged in the credits.

Next: Darwin's Strange Inversion of Reasoning
 
01:19:43
Presented on February 17, 2009, by Dr. Daniel Dennett, Austin B. Fletcher Professor of Philosophy, Tufts University, as the third lecture in the University of Arizona College of Science lecture series, "Science That Transforms." http://cos.arizona.edu/next/ Until Charles Darwin's Origin of Species it was assumed that life forms were built to a pre-existing plan. When Darwin showed that small inherited modifications shaped by survival sufficed to shape life on Earth, he was greeted by criticism for his "strange inversion of reasoning". A century later, Alan Turing added his own strange inversion: "in order to be a perfect and beautiful computer, it is not requisite to know what arithmetic is." Today, we can for the first time observe and understand Darwin's reasoning as the trillions of tiny robotic agencies called cells, that know nothing of the role they are playing, work together to compose the human minds that are able to discover this very fact.

Noam Chomsky, a world-renowned linguist, intellectual and political activist lectured at the University of Arizona on Feb. 7, 2012, on "What is Special About Language?" Noam Chomsky is an Institute Professor and a Professor Emeritus in the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he worked for more than 50 years. Chomsky, who according to The New York Times is "arguably the most important intellectual alive," is credited with revolutionizing the field of linguistics by introducing generative grammar and the concept of a universal grammar, which underlies all human language and is based in the innate structure of language. Beyond linguistics, his work has influenced fields such as cognitive science, philosophy, computer science, mathematics, and psychology. Noam Chomsky has received numerous awards, including the Kyoto Prize in Basic Sciences, the Helmholtz Medal, the Dorothy Eldridge Peacemaker Award, and the Ben Franklin Medal in Computer and Cognitive Science. Since the 1960s, Chomsky has been an influential social analyst and critic. He has published numerous books on U.S. foreign and domestic policies, international politics, the media and related subjects. His writings are among the most quoted in today's world.
