TED: David Christian's Big History

In 18 minutes, San Diego State History professor David Christian gives an engaging talk with amazing graphics that describes the big history of our planet from Big Bang to today in terms of complexity and Goldilocks moments (just-right conditions).   He also announces the intention to create for high school students, with Bill Gates and his own Humanities colleagues, a free online syllabus of our beautiful planet's history to protect the planet for their grandchildren .  Be sure to check this out ...

... and share with Science department colleagues.
