    The Human Papillomavirus, or HPV, is a common virus that touches billions of human beings in one way or another — from a tiny wart on the hand to invasive cancer. HPV can be found worldwide, yet most people who are infected never show any symptoms. The virus can "hide" for years from a person's immune system, with no apparent ill effects, and then awaken and trigger deadly disease.

    In preparation for sending astronauts into space, scientists sent animals to test the effect of high altitudes. But animals could only tell them so much, and so the Air Force began a remarkable program to send balloonists to the outer edge of the atmosphere. Come to the original research site in New Mexico, where Project Manhigh scientists, flight surgeons and inventors explored the science of space travel.

    Surrealist Andre Breton called the work of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo "a bomb with a ribbon around it." The epic work of muralist Diego Rivera, to whom she was married, often overshadowed its miniature detail. Kahlo said she simply painted her life.

    History often celebrates dramatic acts of heroism rather than smaller, more modest acts of leadership and courage. It was an accumulation of small acts throughout Eastern Europe that led to the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. As the wall was being taken apart, citizens of a nearby country were also dismantling their own government. In Czechoslovakia, a protest movement led primarily by college students was blossoming.

    How can a 20-year-old man who is blind, autistic and still believes in Santa Claus play the most sophisticated improvisational jazz piano? How can a child who appears withdrawn and mentally disabled gaze at a building for only a minute then draw an exact reproduction on paper? Producer Stephen Smith explores the mysterious powers of savants — people with profound mental disabilities who develop an island of genius in music, mathematics or art.

    At the turn of this century some 5,000 refugee children arrived in the U.S. every year, penniless and alone, seeking asylum and freedom. A third were locked up - some alongside violent offenders. Until recently, many were deported back to traumatic home situations. The U.S. government does not provide them with lawyers, yet whether they can stay legally is decided in court. Reporter Gillian Karp follows two of these children, Juan Pablo from Honduras and Jimmy from Punjab, India. Why did they leave?

    Over one million Mayan Indians live and work in Southern Mexico, and six Mayan languages continue to thrive there—languages more than 3,000 years old. In the 1950s, anthropologist Robert Laughlin and his wife Mimi arrived in Chiapas, where Laughlin planned to conduct his linguistic research. At that time, he expected to learn the Tzotzil language without too much trouble, and be welcomed into the indigenous culture.

    At a Maine Youth Center, MIT professor, Seymour Papert inaugurated an experiment to radically change an education curriculum. Rooted in his ideas such as those in his book Mindstorms, Children, Computers and Powerful Ideas, Pappert collaborated with Lego and instituted a learning-by-doing program where young pupils spend their day using Legos to build programmable robots - clocks, vehicles and moving fantasy figures. Mindstorm projects are now ubiquitous.

    In 1990, a group of horseback riders completed a journey from Cheyenne River Reservation in Bridger, South Dakota to Wounded Knee Creek on the Pine Ridge Reservation. The 191 mile journey was a commemoration of the ride of Chief Big Foot and the Minneconjou Lakota in 1890, a ride that culminated in a massacre of most of the riders by the U.S. 7th Calvary. The commemorative ride was designed to teach the next generation about their history, to reflect upon what happened and to mend the hoop.

    Brown vs. the Board of Education was the 1954 Supreme Court decision that declared the old "separate but equal" policies of many school boards unconstitutional. The Brown case triggered numerous court mediated desegregation policies around the country, all designed to get equal education to all students. Producer Kathy Baron looks at school districts in California, fifty years after the Brown decision. What, in fact, does an equal education look like?

    They are among the largest mammals on earth, but also among the most invisible: humpback whales are an enigma to scientists who can't observe much of their underwater activities. To unlock the secrets of humpback behavior, researchers have turned to sound to hear what they cannot see. Join us on an underwater visit to the whales on their feeding grounds near Sitka, Alaska. The remarkable sounds discovered there are causing scientists to forge new theories about whales and why they sing.

    Important clues to the origins of the solar system come from asteroids, comets and meteors, believed to be remnants from the early solar system. Until the early 1990s, the only information obtained on these bodies was through Earth-based observations, either by observing them in orbit or by examining the remnants that reach us here on Earth. Producer Dan Grossman investigates the history of our understanding of comets.

    "Truth is a pathless land" said the Indian spiritual leader and iconoclast J. Krishnamurti. He taught pacifism and harmony; he sought freedom through a transformation of the human psyche. People flocked to follow him as he moved across continents and through much of the twentieth century, spreading his word. He never wanted to be called a guru and yet his followers (who included Hollywood film stars) insisted on it.

    Earth and its neighboring planets Venus and Mars all began with similar temperatures, mineral compositions, and atmospheric gases that could have led to the formation of life. Earth was the only planet to pull off that trick, while climate change took Venus and Mars in less hospitable directions. It was much like the story of "Goldilocks and the Three Bears"; Mars was too cold, Venus was too hot, but Earth was just right.

    Around the world there is topless bathing but it is rare in this country. Yet one in four Americans admit to having skinny dipped. Is it hypocritical, a holdover from Puritan beginnings, or something more deep-seated? At the end of summer, before the chill winds blow, Producer Judith Kampfner visits a public nude beach in Miami, Florida and a private naturist camp not far outside New York and yes, complies with the no clothes rule. Baring all may mean feeling vulnerable and stupid.
