The Horse Boy

I've been hearing amazing things about "The Horse Boy" - a documentary that focuses on a family's love for their autistic son, and their extraordinary journey to Mongolia in search of a miracle.

It looks emotional and inspiring. You can catch a great interview on The Treatment with the father (and writer/ producer) Rupert Isaacson.

I gotta feeling

Who wouldn't want to go to the University of Quebec after seeing this. Compare this to the ad campaigns for many universities that all end up saying the same thing. This has something they don't have - energy, passion and creativity.

A small world (beyond imagine)

I was doing a presentation the other day, and was talking about how modern technology and communication has made the world a much smaller place - and how basically this is a good thing. Not exactly a revolutionary thought, I know - but I'm constantly amazed by the inspiration that's all around us. And today, I stumbled across this remarkable video. By giving context to the numbers, it does a wonderful job of demonstrating just how truly tiny we are when compared to the universe. Humbling.

Apollo 11 owner's manual

This might have to be an early birthday request. It's apparently presented like a real owner's manual, so will go nicely with my 2004 Toyota Corolla booklet. Thanks to the always entertaining Bad Astronomy for posting.
