The Known Universe

The following is an extraordinary video detailing the dimensions of our universe. It’s entitled The Known Universe. If you haven’t seen it, then prepare your mind: you’re headed for the boggle point! Unfortunately, I must leave it in a smaller format while it’s on my main page because my theme uses columns. View it directly on YouTube and you will be able to expand the screen. Enjoy. You’ll be singing “God of Wonders” when it’s all over!


Live from Space

I just had to share this with you. Here is a live feed of the International Space Station’s Earth Viewing Experiment. The Station orbits the planet at over 17,000 mph—or 5 miles per second!—and experiences a sunrise every 92 minutes. If you see grey, it means the cameras are toggling; and if you see black, then the Station is on the night side of the Earth. Use the ISS Tracker to determine the Station’s location and how long before it might return to the day side, which is always less than 46 minutes.
