One off the best things I have ever watched. Invest four minutes!  This -- rather than anger and cynicism -- is what being human must be about... or else, why bother?

Oh, also note: almost all of the places depicted here are real. Many of them extrapolated from photos taken already by our robot emissaries. “We” have already been to these wondrous spots. We are already titans!  On our way to unimaginable greatness.

(Though I will keep trying to imagine.)
Seriously, stop whatever you’re doing and WATCH THIS VIDEO. And yes, you very much want to make it full screen: Holy. WOW. This is one of the most wondrous and moving paeans to space exploration I have ever seen. The words of Sagan are magnificent, of course. And the effects...

Overstepping artifacts, by Musicians with Guns, is a way-cool video that illustrates another great riff on fractal space.  I'd love to use this as a basis for the ever-changing metal corals under the seas of Kithrup, in a Startide rising flick!

"The separation between science and human values is an illusion -- and actually quite a dangerous one."
Questions of good and evil, right and wrong are commonly thought unanswerable by science. But Sam Harris argues that science can — and should — be an authority on moral issues, shaping human values and setting out what constitutes a good life.

Crazy Stuff!
 
This is absolutely groundbreaking in my view and makes one wonder if DNA of the original life-forms on earth ever had a guiding hand somewhere in a galaxy far away.

Synthetic DNA advance is hailed http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-26768445
