The Long Now Foundation

I just found out about The Long Now foundation. Spectacular, earnest video, put together in logical order. Most of all I loved to learn about the Orrery. I first heard of an orrery in a fiction book (Little, Big) and I didn't know if it was make believe so I am glad to know that they really exist.

The Long Now people are installing a clock on a parcel of land near the Great Basin National Park. Here you can play many sounds of nature from the park. And you can find out about The Night Sky Team.
