Two beautiful videos

I’ve been bookmarking some videos for use here. Originally, I was going to try to mash several videos of different styles into one post. A little science fiction, a little humor, a loud song to pump you up. But these two are so beautiful that I thought they should stand alone.

The first is a set of 3D-printed objects based on Fibonacci numbers illuminated by a strobe light while spinning. The effect is mesmerizing.

The second shows scenes of humanity exploring the solar system coupled with Carl Sagan reading from his book Pale Blue Dot.

Somewhat related: I’m currently reading Isaac Asimov’s Foundation. More on that soon, I think.
