Neil Armstrong Tribute and Why Our Brains Love Junk Food – Hank Green

Neil Armstrong Tribute

This video pays tribute to Neil Armstrong, who passed away on August 25th, 2012 (Just four days ago).

Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on a world that was not Earth, has died. Getting his pilot’s license before his driver’s license probably didn’t hurt when it came to becoming one of the world’s most famous men – certainly the world’s most famous space man. A remarkable man who was able to accomplish many great things, his legacy is far larger than himself – he became a symbol of our greatest accomplishments and it is very sad to now be in a world without him.

Marko Karvo – The Magic Doves

Magic has been a lifelong passion for Marko Karvo. Inspired by a classmate who had a copy of “Mickey Mouse’s Magic”, he borrowed the book to learn a few tricks and soon discovered that he had a natural talent for magic and entertaining. By age 13 he had given his first school performance in his home town of Utajärvi, Finland.  Marko Carvo and his birds perform their magic with amazing technical perfection, class and showmanship. Magnifique!

Wow!  How does he do that?
