A collaboration of two songwriters is difficult to do well but to pull off a trinity is all but unhead of.

Explore the Apollo 11 spacecraft in 3D
The Smithsonian Institution published a highly accurate 3D model of the Apollo 11 Command Module Columbia. You can explore it on Android by visiting this website:

http://cardboard.autodesk.com/apollo/pano.html?url=apollo/img1

This is a website, an online app that accessible from mobile devices too. It works also on Android devices with Chrome, although other browsers may do. For more information on the spacecraft model see:

http://3d.si.edu/apollo11cm/

Features
You can view the interior of the spacecraft in 2D using an Android device. To view it in 3D in a realistic stereoscopic experience you also need a Google Cardboard viewer.

Usage
Once the model is loaded rotate the phone to the landscape orientation, i.e. horizontally, to switch to the Cardboard view. Insert the phone into the Cardboard viewer and look around to explore the interior of the spacecraft.

Tap the full screen icon to exit Cardboard mode and explore the model at full screen by moving the phone around.

The + icon zooms in, the > one switches to a different point of view.

Tips
A high-end Android device with a good Wi-Fi connection is likely required as the website is resource-intensive.

Chrome is not currently designed as a Cardboard viewing app. Therefore the phone goes to sleep and the screen turns off after a few tens of seconds of inactivity. Make the inactivity timeout longer from your phone’s system settings under Display > Sleep.

Extremely intimate and personal sounding, like he is playing it just for the listener. A great finale to a wonderful performer and person. Allen will be greatly missed by all.

I guess you can think of me as an agnostic atheist, not only do I not believe in a creator, I don't even know which one I don't believe in.
Introduction
A multithreaded program with extensive global mutable state is one of the best demonstrations of the Heisenberg uncertainty principle I know of.

As Antoine-Marie Roger de Saint-Exupery said, La perfection est atteinte non quand il ne reste rien à ajouter, mais quand il ne reste rien à enlever. (English translation: You know you’ve achieved perfection in design, not when you have nothing more to add, but when you have nothing more to take away.)

There are 10 types of people in the world today. Those that understand binary number systems and those that do not.
