August is reblog month! Today’s offering is not exactly a reblog, but it’s too hot to split long, sweaty hairs. I’m in a science-y mood, so here are my
two THREE favorite things this week:
1. Open Culture, which has provided links to 20 free online stories from Ian Sales’s 100 Great Sci-Fi Stories by Women Writers! Open Culture is a site for sore eyes. If you head over there you might never come back. Free courses, free e-books and movies, articles on just about everything. The mind boggles at the bounty to be found there.
3. “The Known Universe”: a video that “takes viewers from the Himalayas through our atmosphere and the inky black of space to the afterglow of the Big Bang. Every star, planet, and quasar seen in the film is possible because of the world’s most complete four-dimensional map of the universe, the Digital Universe Atlas that is maintained and updated by astrophysicists at the American Museum of Natural History.”
This came out a few years ago, but it never gets old. If it doesn’t bring tears to your eyes, you are a psychopath. Just sayin’.
