Summary
Alan Alda visits scientists whose subjects take them to extremes. Segments: what makes cheetahs the fastest land animal; how insects are still evolving to endure intense desert heat and dryness; the wood frog's ability to freeze itself solid while hibernating; and adaptation of deep-sea creatures to fierce pressure and darkness. Scientists test methods to predict "mountain sickness," life-threatening to humans at extreme altitudes
