I’ve had a bunch of podcasting resources at The Best Sites To Practice Speaking English, and thought it would be useful to move them over to their own “Best” list, as well as add new resources (please suggest more):
NASA has launched the Exoplanet Travel Bureau, a visualization tool that allows users to explore the surfaces of three exoplanets: Kepler-16b, Kepler-186f, and TRAPPIST-1e. The 360-degree visualizations, which can be seen on your computer, phone, tablet or using a virtual reality headset, are artists’ renderings—there are no photographic images of these planets, so the graphics are based on hypotheticals. You can change the scene by adding or subtracting hypothetical atmospheres, creating skies, clouds and weather.
I’ve previously posted some of the group OK Go’s music videos, and was pleased to read that they had teamed-up with Google to create the OK Go Sandbox, a collection of classroom activities connected to their music.
This is one of the more amazing videos of Rube Goldberg machines you’ll see.
