Researchers build a virtual walking system for re-experiencing the journey of another person. (1) But how can you relive anything you have not lived in the first place? We have lost connection to the simple answers. And that is why we are having complex questions… Look at your feet. Close your eyes. Can you see […]

Longing for experience…
Opportunities for people to interact with nature have declined over the past century, as many now live in urban areas and spend much of their time indoors. Conservation attitudes and behaviors largely depend on experiences with nature, and this ‘extinction of experience’ (EOE) is a threat to biodiversity conservation. Researchers now propose that citizen science, […]

MAGNIFY! (Do you trust your eyes?) [against senses… again]
Extremely distant galaxies are usually too faint to be seen, even by the largest telescopes. But nature has a solution: gravitational lensing, predicted by Albert Einstein and observed many times by astronomers. However recently, an international team of astronomers, led by Harald Ebeling of the Institute for Astronomy at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, […]
