UC Berkeley – Integrative Biology 131: General Human Anatomy

This is a complete course from UC Berkeley; Integrative Biology 131: General Human Anatomy from the Fall of 2005. It is taught by Professor Marian Diamond, one of the most inspiring teachers I have seen.

The Department of Integrative Biology offers a program of instruction that focuses on the integration of structure and function in the evolution of diverse biological systems. It investigates integration at all levels of organization from molecules to the biosphere, and in all taxa of organisms from viruses to higher plants and animals.

The Poetry of Science: Richard Dawkins and Neil deGrasse Tyson

Two of science’s luminaries converse on the beauty of science. Neil deGrasse Tyson, astrophysicist and host of NOVA and evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins will explore the wonders of the Cosmos and of Life, its origins, its inspirations, and why science is not just an option, it is the only reality we possess.

This is a brilliant talk by some of the brightest scientific minds. Both of them great speakers and great teachers.

Robert Zubrin – The Case for Mars

Robert Zubrin is an American aerospace engineer and author, best known for his advocacy of manned Mars exploration. He was the driving force behind Mars Direct—a proposal intended to produce significant reductions in the cost and complexity of such a mission. Here is his talk about exploration and colonization of Mars, with all the technical details although the lecture is a bit aged, but still very interesting and funny at moments. It’s given to the 15th Annual Meeting of the Doctors for Disaster Preparedness held in San Diego, California; June 1997.
