10 Dimensions of our world [video]

A little bit of brain exercise. Imagining the 10th dimension, or imagining dimensions above 4th which is time.

Rob Bryanton in this video explains what does 10 dimension of our world means. 1o dimensions are created by humans to describe the world they are in, taking it to the bounds of describing all possible universes within all possible times.

I wonder in how many dimension we can describe cyberspace.
If I am first dimension, connecting me to the other internet user directly is 2nd dimension (etc. email)… I’ll continue maybe one day 🙂

Steven Hawking Lectures on Why Humans Should Go into Space [video]

There will be those who argue that it would be better to spend our money solving the problems of this planet …I am not denying the importance of fighting climate change and global warming, but we can do that and still spare a quarter of a percent of world GDP for space. Isn’t our future worth a quarter of percent?

Steven Hawking gave a talk in honor of NASA’s 50th anniversary on the value of human space exploration.
Here are 3 parts video with that talk.
