This material is taken from The Open University course E852 Language, literacy and learning in the contemporary world.Author(s): The iTunes U team

What Creates a Total Solar Eclipse?
How can the shadow of the tiny moon eclipse the sight of the gargantuan sun? By sheer coincidence, the disc of the sun is 400 times larger than the disc of the moon, but it's 390 times farther from Earth -- which means that when they align just right, the moon blocks all but the sun's glowing corona. Andy Cohen details this extraordinary celestial phenomenon (and when it will next occur). Lesson by Andy Cohen, animation by Bevan Lynch. (03:45)

4.2 The science behind Golden Rice

Modifying crops to produce the Bt toxin (Section 3.1) was, in some ways, relatively simple. The toxin is a single protein and can therefore be produced as a result of the insertion of a single gene into the plant's genome. Similarly, introducing herbicide tolerance (Section 3.2) typically involves modifying the action of a single enzyme, and therefore modification again involves the insertion of a single gene.

β-carotene is not a protein. It is a hydrocarbon, i.e. a compound containing
