Adrian Bejan on Discovery's Through the Wormhole

Design in Nature

Adrian Bejan, who discovered the constructal law of design and evolution in nature, was featured recently on an episode of the Discovery Channel series Through the Wormhole. The following 8-minute clip from the episode "Did God Invent Evolution" features a segment with Bejan discussing the constructal law. For a more in depth dissection of constructal law check out Bejan's groundbreaking Design in Nature which takes the recurring patterns in nature—trees, tributaries, air passages, neural networks, and lightning bolts—and reveals how this single principle of physics accounts for the evolution of these and many other designs in our world.
