Synopsis

Host Alan Alda visits scientists whose subjects take them to the edge of the possible. Among the stories: studies of how cheetahs and pronghorn antelopes run so fast; how desert creatures survive searing heat; creatures that live in the permanent darkness of the ocean's depths; how Arctic creatures comfortably live at temperatures below zero; and the nature of "mountain sickness," a debilitating condition that makes some mountain climbers behave as though drunk and exhausted at high elevations.
