The Best Of Our Knowledge # 1112
http://www.wamc.org/prog-tbook.html – Remember that book from the late 60s called Chariots of the Gods? The author theorized that visitors from other solar systems are responsible for much of human culture and existence. For the most part, the scientific community was not impressed. But there are scientists that believe some of the building blocks of life have come from beyond the planet Earth. Today on The Best Of Our Knowledge we'll investigate a high flying theory on the origin of life.
We'll also find out why medical students in the African country of Uganda are making choices that are leading to a shortage of surgeons. And we'll spend an academic minute with a healthy mind and healthy body.
