We will be posting some inspirational TED(x) talks for you to view at home. Get in the mood of TED and be inspired by this year’s TEDxDelft theme: Do try this at home!

Do watch this at home! Jon Nguyen: Tour the solar system from home

This talk by Jon Nguyen (TEDxSanDiego, Dec 2011) is great for every wannabe astronomer (or already accomplished astronomer for that matter). We all know Google Maps, which allows you to zoom in from above on a part of earth. Nguyen made a tool to zoom out into space. With his program you can ‘play’ with satellites and planets and learn about the solar system. Do try this at home!
