Summary
Earthquakes in the Midwest: Some of the most dramatic earthquakes to strike North America haven't been in California or Alaska; they've hit in the heart of the United States. -- Sleep: We spend about one-third of our lives sleeping. Scientists don't know why, but evidence is building that sleep may play a crucial role in strengthening memories and facilitating learning. -- Profile: Marine geologist Sang-Mook Lee is paralyzed from the neck down. But this hasn't slowed him down. He continues to teach and focus on his work on tectonic plates and the formation of the world's oceans, and spends his free time advocating for disabled people's rights. -- First Primates: Could one of our early ancestors have been the size of a mouse? Go into the field to search for our missing relatives from the shadowy period after the catastrophe that doomed the dinosaurs
