The World Wide Telescope

Every once and a while we like to present something other than books to help stoke your imagination. Our video presentation of philosopher Dan Dennett is a great example.

Today we want to introduce you to The World Wide Telescope. It’s a revolutionary technology being given to everyone this spring. Both these videos come from a truly incredible website called Ted.com You should make it a regular stop. (The video is a little dark at the begining, let it continue as it improves quite a bit- also the intro is quite loud)

  • Great video, thanks for sharing; it reminds me to take my nose out of a book once and a while and look up.

  • Very, very interesting! And TED site is great. I remember that I saw a presentation there about a new game which involves the universe as well, so that children (of all ages like the 2nd speaker said) could learn much about the universe.

  • It’s nice to see some interesting sites here that are on subjects other than books. Keeping the old noggin chugging away is great for any small business owner. I hope to open my bookstore soon Thanks for all the great posts.
