Time Waster Wednesday - We're All Made Of Stars

TR sent me this, and it gave me chills.

Carl Sagan always thrilled me. I remember first hearing him speak about our place in the universe when I was maybe 11 or 12, and he made me feel alternately small and connected.

And I heart Bill Nye.

Put em' together with some other smart guys (one of whom is just so gleeful about his musings that I can't help but smile every time I see him) and some lovely music and it's Mimi Rickets Bliss.

Your time waster today? (Not so much a waste of time as a distraction for you to curse me about later.)


(Cleeck the peectures!)

The coolest of the cool, especially if you love maps.

Link is for the videos... a little ad-heavy but really interesting stuff!

A virtual tour, how cool!

Happy Wednesday!

I'd never heard of any of those people but I loved that video. I just had an extremely profound moment. Seriously.

You've never heard of Carl Sagan?

Well ok... but...


You don't know Bill Nye the Science Guy?!

Oh you poor deprived woman. :)

Love both those guys! My parents used to watch Carl Sagan on PBS I think.
