More information about this ancient technological marvel be found on this video from Nature: Part 1 and part 2

Yeah not sure why this is featured now since it is not a "new" find (we've seen that image many times before), but still neat nonetheless.

I also wonder when we will start calling it the Antikythera Planetarium now that we know what it is (mechanism was the appropriate term when we had no idea).
