Morning Roundup: The Size of the Known Universe

Above is the universe as we know it. While this video from The American Museum of Natural History and the Rubin Museum is very impressive, we’ve known how to fit the universe on a blog for three years plus! (But really, this video is great.) Beyond the entire universe, we also have some other exciting offsite links for you. They are below.

Highlights include:

1.) Something about The Dark Knight Rises which you may or may not want to know.

2.) Doctor Who rumblings.

3.) Scalzi tries to explain LPs to his daughter.

Every day Stubby the Rocket jets around the internet looking for links of interest. When Stubby finds these links, they get put in our handy Links of Interest section and sometimes on our Twitter and Facebook! Here are today’s:


Stubby the Rocket is the voice and mascot of Tor.com. Stubby once beat the Universe in high-stakes Texas Hold ’Em, but felt bad and let the Universe keep all of its chips.
