Timelapse Aurora Borealis

Since I have already mentioned my obsession with Iceland and the Aurora Borealis in the past (and I still haven’t made it there), I will simply put this here and let you appreciate the magic of this breathtaking phenomenon combined with some thrilling music by Ludovico Einaudi.
Lay back and enjoy 🙂

P.S. Happy new year travellers and geek(ette)s!

Plan(t)ing like crazy

Since I returned to my home town, at the parents’ house, I am constantly trying to find hobbies in order to not socialize a lot with them 😛 But seriously, while thinking about stuff I like, what I thought I always wanted to do but never really had the chance was to make my own piece of “green paradise” at my balcony. So I bought some beautiful plants and started sowing like crazy 😀
So far I’ve got Oregano, Rosemary, Spearmint, Chrysanthemum and lovely red Roses!

The next ones on the list are some mint and basil. Can’t wait..

“My God, It’s full of stars!”

No, this is not a post about the famous novel “2001: A Space Odyssey”, it’s about a small project I started a few months ago for the “Multimedia” class at the University. It is a metaphoric visualization of famous people, which are represented as stars in a galaxy. The visualization shows those people who were born or died a particular day of the year in a spiral continuum which represents time.

Galaxy Of Fame

P.S. Special thanks to Andy for supporting me on this project!

Visiting London? Then this is for you…

Top 100 places in London

A word cloud of the Top 100 places in London

If there is anything that can make me even more excited about science, then it must be to get involved with it. The more active I get, the more I like it… but enough with the introductions! This semester, as part of an assignment for the university, I did a small survey to find out the most popular places in London and I wanted to share it with you. I think the results are quite interesting.

About 50 people
More than 270 answers

Here is the full list: Top 100 places in London

P.S. I would like to thank anyone that participated to the survey for their valuable help.
