After Life

What happens at the moment when we slip from the other side? Is it a moment? If it is, when exactly does it happen? And what happens afterward? It's a show of questions that don't have easy answers. So, in a slight departure from our regular format, we bring you eleven meditations on how, when, and even if we die.

This hour: Radiolab stares down the very moment of passing, and speculates about what may lay beyond.
