We are on a spaceship; a beautiful one. It took billions of years to develop. We’re not going to get another. Now, how do we make this spaceship work?

    When data visualization is useful

    just the other day i was having a conversation with rene about the usefulness of data visualization. we both agreed that for arts sake, this is a perfectly nice thing to look at, however rene felt was not very useful beyond that most of the time.

    i disagreed, however had difficulty coming up with examples of why i felt this was true. thanks to seed magazine for creating this well visualized (yet badly narrated) video called Science in Silico.

    this video shows some very stunning data visualizations of what viruses look like when they mutate, what solar systems look like when they collide and even proves Einstein's theory of gravitational waves.

    This is amazing. I love seeing this technology applied to provide a molecular view. Once technology catches up with our ambitions, I predict that this technology will blast us into the previously unknown. This is the sort of thing that will catapult us towards Einstein's great white unified theory. Whether or not that is possible is regardless to what we will learn from letting a computer show us what our discoveries have been insinuating all this time without our abilities to explain it completely otherwise.
