Storyboard Text

  • Human Evolution
  • Human Diaspora - How?
  • Scientists Went to Work...
  • Our ancestors evolved in Africa over 200,000 years ago (or 200KYA).
  • ...and unlocked the secrets from the DNA
  • Scientists, however, have been wondering how our ancestors populated the rest of the globe.
  • New puzzling discoveries came with the secrets...
  • Three teams of scientists looked into the DNA of 787 indigenous people across the globe.
  • ... as well as new questions.
  • All three teams came to the same solution independent of one another: Homo sapiens migrated out of Africa ~80KYA to 50KYA in one big wave.
  • Papua New Guinea DNA has traces of a much older migration (~120KYA) than that discovered), forcing us to recreate the human tree.
  • For example, why did our ancestors leave their tropical paradise at all?
