Even in the midst of economic freefall, there are signs of hope. As of January 2009, the United States has built a flying car, found ways to turn algae into fuel, synthetically reproduced organs, had face-to-face conversations with people on the other side of the planet, and built robots to do our house cleaning for us. Come find out how some of the smartest people in California are trying to innovate us out of disaster.
