Embryos are the most complex self-assembling machines known in the universe. Joel Rothman, Professor of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology at UCSB, explores the instructions for self-assembly using a tiny animal -- the humble C. elegans worm. Find out what he has discovered and the research into life-support systems that may allow these creatures to become the first interstellar astronauts, departing the solar system at near-light speeds.
