What if we designed a new kind of “maker space” - a space that isn’t just for putting pieces together, but also for seeing and understanding a project’s behavior in powerful ways?

Seeing Spaces

"What’s your greatest struggle right now?""I adopted a son about six months ago. He’s 3.5 years old, and we’ve been having difficulty with his behavior. If he was here right now, he’d be running around, pulling up plants, and hitting things with sticks. He’s spent all his life in an orphanage, and was deprived of adult attention. The psychologist tells us that’s the reason he’s acting out.""What’s been your happiest moment with your son?""One morning I was standing in the kitchen, and he hugged me without me asking."(Korzhi, Ukraine)

The precision of lat/long coordinates

jkottke:

Let’s say you have latitude/longitude coordinates of 40.742041, -73.989579 (my current location). How precise are those 6 digits after the decimal point? Well, five decimal places will get you to within a meter and six will get you to within 11 cm:

The fifth decimal place is worth up to 1.1…

On this day in 1977, Voyager 1 was launched into space carrying a “Golden Record” with the sounds of planet Earth. In 2012, it reached interstellar space. Timothy Ferris, the writer of the Hayden Planetarium Space Show Dark Universe script, produced the “Golden Record” and talks about it in this video.

"My brother went to college in America, and it was very hard for my parents to send him there. My father worked two jobs. I’d always hear him talking to my mother about money troubles. So when I graduated from high school, I went straight to work, to help pay for my brother’s school. I never resented it, because I knew he was more intelligent than me, and he deserved it. But now he has a great job in Australia, and I wish that I’d gone to college. But you know what? That same brother married into a family with two sisters. He married the older sister. And at the wedding, I met the younger sister, we danced, and now we are married. Her name means ‘angel,’ and she is my angel. And I tell her every day that she’s better than being a millionaire. So my brother got his job. And I got my wife." (Dhana, Jordan)

    The immense distances to the stars and the galaxies mean that we see everything in space in the past – some as they were before the Earth came to be. Telescopes are time machines.
