Brian Dunning - “Your Brain Sucks” - TAM 2012 (by JamesRandiFoundation)
A Slower Speed of Light is a free little game from the MIT Game Lab. It visually demonstrates the effects of relativity. You move around in the first person picking up orbs which slow down the speed of light—the effect being that your normal walking speed inches ever closer to light speed. When you move faster—or light moves slower—colors begin to morph as the invisible shifts into the visible spectrum, until finally time and space themselves start bending. Very trippy, but based on real physics.
I’m sorry for the Sagan spam guys, but no one give me more reasons to love science than him did. Not one of my my teachers, not M. Curie, not Noether, not even Gaileu or Feynman.
I wish I had photo of a book written by him called ‘Planets’ that I read when I was 11, by that time I already have been wanting to study the stars not actually knowing if that was possible.That book showed me what would I need, what I would find, and more important: what science really is.
Thank you, Sagan
