Weekly Article Roundup- April 18-22nd

Yes, yes, I know all this blog has been is article roundups the past couple of weeks. I swear I’m working on some behind-the-scenes posts that will offer a little more content. In the meantime…. Weekly Article Roundup!

Titanic Sinking in Real Time

I don’t know about everyone else, but my favorite library books as a kid were about ancient Egypt, the Titanic, and anything space related. I only saw the movie ‘Titanic’ as a kid because of all the authenticity they tried to inject into the movie (you guys… it was the same dish and carpet company!). Extra bonus the soundtrack was stunning… the instrumentals, not the Celine Dion song.

Regardless, this is a great visualization of how the ship sank over 2.5 hours. It was tragic in regard to the 1500 souls who lost their lives, but this is a tool for understanding and learning for our endeavors going forward.

The Network Behind the Cosmic Web

This is hands down the coolest visualization I have ever seen. This shows the different connections between the hundreds of thousands of galaxies in the universe.

Shifting Parent Work Hours, Mom vs. Dad

An interesting look at parents and how they divide their time. Again, no comment on my own part, it is just an interesting look at the data behind.
