Join Los Alamos National Laboratory director emeritus Terry Wallace as he explores the beauty of the cosmic and tectonic journey that gold has taken, and the spell it has cast over humankind.

Minerals are the planet’s DNA, containing the fragments of the Earth’s complex history from its formation nearly 4.6 billion years ago to the rise of life. Gold is one of the most fascinating of the 4,500 mineral species on Earth, and no mineral (or metal) evokes more emotion.

But it also has an incredible scientific story: a gold nugget is made of material that was not born in our planet or even our solar system.
