One of the most fundamental questions in our pursuit to understand our living world is how new species come to be, creating the vast biodiversity that exists on our planet.  Here, I will tell the story of how scientists across continents and disciplines have tracked this question over 150 years for a most humble creature – a fly.  Starting under an apple tree with one of Darwin’s classmates, to a virtual reality arena in Bangalore, we will discuss how tiny changes in the brain of an insect can lead to changes in behavior, and ultimately, the beginning of a new species.
