UnknownThe Hidden Universe Within

Well this was a gem of an interview with Neil Shubin who just published his book “The Universe Within: Discovering the Common History of Rocks, Planets, and People. I like listening to in depth interviews while I am exercising and this one is great and quite thought-provoking. He explores the nature of our bodies containing the elements of an increasingly complex universe.

Tonite and into Sunday morning the Perseid Meteor shower will grace especially the northern hemisphere with a cosmic light show. I think the average number of meteors piercing the earths atmosphere is about 30-40 per hour. I love stuff like this, makes me feel the connection to the universe we are part of. Click here for a link about the shower. Lie back and enjoy!
