Inge Druckrey: Teaching to See (Produced by Edward Tufte)

I started watching this documentary on design, typography and data visualization and I couldn’t stop watching. 

Beauty, inspiration and peace of mind from top to bottom.

Lightning Launch
Speaking of awesome lightning, did you know that Apollo 12’s Saturn V was struck by lightning less than a minute after launch? The bolt threw the navigation computer into chaos and then traveled down the energized exhaust plume.
Read about the white-knuckled minutes, the near-abort and controlled self-destruct that almost happened. Until a young  flight controller suggested they flip “SCE to AUX”.

How much do you think you know about science compared to the average Earthling? Take Pew Research Center’s 13 question Science and Technology Knowledge Quiz and see where you stack up.
Hopefully reading It’s Okay To Be Smart will help you all get 100%. How’d you do?

12/13. Apparently i have a gap in atmospheric knowledge which i should probably attend to.

12 out of 13 for me
