 TED: Regina Dugan: From mach-20 glider to humming bird drone - Regina Dugan (2012) | File Type: video/mp4 | Duration: 00:25:01

"What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?" asks Regina Dugan, then director of DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

(Followed by a Q&A with TED's Chris Anderson)

 TED: Donald Sadoway: The missing link to renewable energy - Donald Sadoway (2012) | File Type: video/mp4 | Duration: 00:15:15

What's the key to using alternative energy, like solar and wind? Storage -- so we can have power on tap even when the sun's not out and the wind's not blowing. In this accessible, inspiring talk, Donald Sadoway takes to the blackboard to show us the future of large-scale batteries that store renewable energy. As he says: "We need to think about the problem differently. We need to think big. We need to think cheap."

 TED: Taylor Wilson: Yup, I built a nuclear fusion reactor - Taylor Wilson (2012) | File Type: video/mp4 | Duration: 00:03:32

Taylor Wilson believes nuclear fusion is a solution to our future energy needs, and that kids can change the world.

Now 17, he takes the TED stage at short notice to tell (the short version of) his story.

 TED: Noel Bairey Merz: The single biggest health threat women face - C. Noel Bairey Merz (2011) | File Type: video/mp4 | Duration: 00:15:59

Noel Bairey Merz shares what we know and don't know about women's heart health -- including the remarkably different symptoms women present during a heart attack (and why they're often missed). (Filmed at TEDxWomen.)

The US consumes 25% of the world's oil -- but as energy tycoon T. Boone Pickens points out onstage, the country has no energy policy to prepare for the inevitable. Is alternative energy our bridge to an oil-free future? After losing $150 million investing in wind energy, Pickens suggests it isn't, not yet. What might get us there? Natural gas. After the talk, watch for a lively Q&A with TED Curator Chris Anderson.
