The origin of consciousness is one of the biggest mysteries in the universe. The complex inner lives that humans have versus the seemingly simple ones of other animals is thought to be the process of millions of years of small evolutionary steps leading up to us. Kurzgesagt looks at some of the scientific — and not so scientific — theories for the number one thing that makes humans truly human.

The MA-1 silhouette got its start in the mid-1950s when it became the flight jacket of the U.S. Air Force, Navy pilots, and ground crews. The originals removed the fur collar of the B-15 which came before it due to interference with parachute harnesses. This bomber adds to the legendary jacket's history with poly-fill, orange lining, and a modern cut for a slim fit. Details include two lower flap pockets, two interior welt pockets, as well as a utility pocket on the sleeve and knit ribbing on the collar, cuffs, and waistband. The timeless look is finished with a signature red "Remove Before Flight" flag and is available in black or olive.

The solid-core ball provided the best of both worlds in feel and distance — and the debate over its influence continues today.
