A wonderful video I ran across on brainpickings (I highly recommend that site, too) featuring the famous physicist Richard Feynman explaining why science only adds to the beauty of world.
“Lost in Light, a short film on how light pollution affects the view of the night skies. Shot mostly in California, the movie shows how the view gets progressively better as you move away from the lights. Finding locations to shoot at every level of light pollution was a challenge and getting to the darkest skies with no light pollution was a journey in itself.”
The video by Sriram Murali is only three minutes long, and it’s a beautiful and sad illustration of what we are missing in the night sky.
