    Look Who's Driving
    After years of anticipation, autonomous vehicles are now being tested on public roads all over the world. Dozens of startups have sprung up alongside established auto and tech giants-who are also testing the waters-to form what many hope will be a transformative new industry. As ambitious innovators are rushing to cash in on what they see as high tech's next pot of gold, some experts warn there are still daunting challenges to overcome... such as how to train computers to make life-and-death decisions as well as humans can. NOVA peers under the hood of the autonomous automotive industry to investigate how exactly driverless cars work, how they may change the way we live, and whether we will ever be able to entrust them with our lives.

    Secrets of the Sky Tombs
    A team of scientists and explorers probe high altitude caves in the Tibetan Himalayas looking for clues to how humans found their way into this forbidding landscape and adapted their bodies to survive. Along the way they discover evidence of ritual burials, thousands of years old: skeletons, mummies, and evidence of practices designed to ward off ancient vampires and even zombies.

    Decoding da Vinci
    How was Leonardo da Vinci able to think so far "outside the box" that he envisaged developments in engineering, astronomy, and anatomy that were only realized centuries later? The list of da Vinci's "firsts" is astonishing: he asserted that "the sun does not move" more than a generation before Copernicus; he reasoned that fatty deposits in narrowed arteries were caused by an unhealthy diet; he drew the first designs for a parachute, armored car, machine gun, diving suit, helicopter, and a flying machine that anticipates the modern hang glider, not to mention history's first humanoid robot. NOVA joins Walter Isaacson, author of the acclaimed recent biography, on a journey to Italy to explore the impact of da Vinci's art on his science and his science on his art.
