New Video: Why are We Driven to Explore?

by Nancy Atkinson on July 23, 2013

Why do we explore? Is it the desire to break through boundaries, or to probe the perimeters of possibilities? With his lightning-fast mind, self-professed wonder junkie Jason Silva can quickly list all the great quotes about space exploration and why it is important for the human species to explore; and he does it in this new video from his “Shots of Awe” series on You Tube.

Strap in and enjoy the fast ride that is Jason Silva!

“Shots of Awe” are weekly three-minute videos with what Silva calls “inspired nuggets of techno-rapture,” that can provide a nudge to contemplate your life; whether it be to look at the complex systems of society, technology, or the beauty of nature and science.
