    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.

    Bigger Than T.rex
    Almost a century ago, paleontologists found the first tantalizing hints of a monster even bigger than Tyrannosaurus Rex, perhaps the largest predator ever to walk the Earth: spectacular fossil bones from a dinosaur dubbed Spinosaurus. But the fossils were completely destroyed during a World War II Allied bombing raid, leaving only drawings, lots of questions, and a mystery: What was Spinosaurus? Now, the discovery of new bones in a Moroccan cliff face reopens the investigation.
