This 745-foot aerial sculpture stretched along the Vancouver waterfront at TED2014. The net-like design, created by artist Janet Echelman, was made from a fiber called Spectra, which is 15 times stronger than steel.
Passersby could use their cell phones to manipulate the lights, a trick set up by Google’s Aaron Koblin. "The lighting on the sculpture is actually a giant website," he says. “It’s one huge Google Chrome window spread across five HD projectors.”

To be honest though, I don’t really like my birthday very much. It just represents another year that I wont get back and the fact that I’m closer to dying :/

Mankind has always wondered about the kind of universe it lives in. Mankind has always indulged in creation myths as far back as recorded history goes, and it’s just human nature to want to understand the universe we live in, where it came from, what it is now and where it’s going.
