Conception to Birth - Alexander Tsiaras

I gotta post this TED talk... Now we are able to visualize the formative process of the fetus of conception to birth. Isn't this just amazing? Just how much complexity is infused into our growth to make us the way we are, and mostly without much glitches along way so that we can come into this world, bearing resemblance to everybody else but not totally the same.

The educational implication of this video to the general public is immense. When before, people thought the babies popping out of a mother's womb is something bizarre, arcane and inexplicable, now there is at least a glimpse of the macro-processes that are taking place.

Science is advancing. Sometimes, it's so fast and fascinating, it frightens me...
