Long Description: 
There's nothing like some prize money to get things moving. Ask Charles Lindbergh and his Spirit of St. Louis, or Peter Diamandis, Chairman and CEO of the X Prize Foundation. Author of Abundance: The Future Is Better Than You Think, Diamandis believes human innovation can overcome any hurdle- -especially when the competitive spirit gets involved. He describes scientific breakthroughs of the past and future, incentivized by the 10 million dollar X Prize for the benefit of humanity. Karen Saupe hosts.
