Exploring the deep and beyond for Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day, folks! Today is special, as it marks the fiftieth anniversary of Earth Day.

To celebrate this event, I want to point you to a couple of thingies…

Recently, Kavita Ramial introduced me to a deep dive (10 kilometres deep!) into the Earth’s oceans. It was quite an experience! This is on ‘Neal.fun‘, a site that says it’s ‘For people with too much time’. I think it’s being a bit harsh on itself there. Another feature on Neal.fun is ‘the size of space‘. It’s amazing… but there’s more:

Space is big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it’s a long way down the street to the chemist, but that’s just peanuts to space. Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

(Thanks to MargFromTassie for pointing me to that awesome video!)

  2. Thanks for the link that came by Marg’s link. Yes, that is a terrific video and yet one which leaves one just as mystified as before. For I believe it is just too much for our brains to understand; in a rational sense.

  3. fascinating watch. I read Physics at university and with both astro and quantum, the scale was so unimaginable, all you could really do was solve the maths.
