Flight 1549 - Heroism and Survival/Stuff Happens - Planet Green

When Captain Chesley 'Sully' Sullenberger III safely landed US Airlines Flight 1549 in the Hudson River he was appropriately heralded for his heroism in saving the lives of all 155 passengers and crew.  But Sullenberger is also a survivor.  What can the science of survival tell you about the way you would react in a life-or-death situation?  We'll take a look at that next week...  

Meanwhile, check out "Stuff Happens."  It's the new Bill Nye show on Planet Green.  It's got the feel of the old "Bill Nye the Science Guy" with a serious look at the unintended consequences of our everyday decisions.
