Out of the Blue

In keeping with tradition, I forgot to wish Frans a happy birthday in time, as the occasion passed on Saturday. Happy birthday to our good friend, programmer, and proofreader, and while we're at it, happy belated birthdays to Stephen Hawking and Elvis.

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).
