Just a short collection of links this time, but many of them well worth while.
- I didn’t include Higgs Boson links in the last installment, because I needed more time to digest them. I think the best news report was from the Guardian. A couple of worthwhile explainers (ones from which I felt I learned something) are here and here.
- Some of Johannes Kepler’s writings are online. I can’t read the Latin, but it’s still cool. Looking forward to the day when all of Kepler’s works will be available.
- An essay on the brain and how it perceives time. Interesting facts scattered throughout.
- Sonic screwdriver remote control. I’m not sure how practical it is, but could be useful for watching movies in the dark (no more hitting Eject instead of Pause).
- A six hundred year old bra. Speaks for itself.
- Video documentary about the moon landings and their historical context.
And here’s a photograph of a pigeon I took the other day (for no particular reason except that I had the camera with me, it was there, and I thought it came out well).
I don’t have a lot of news, but I did recently see a koala walking along a footpath just 200 paces from my home. That’s pretty significant.
