"The importance of a telescope is not how big it is, how well made it is. It is how many people, less fortunate than you, got to look through it" -- John Dobson

Stephen Hawking's Story of Everything
Caught this two-hour episode on National Geographic channel last week. Absolutely fascinating storytelling using cutting edge computer animation. This is the best episode of the 3-part series titled "Into the Universe with Stephen Hawking". I think even the normal DVD version does not do full justice to the incredible computer animations created for this series. Astronomy clubs and societies should grab a blu-ray version of this series when it is available for sale. This is the perfect documentary to psych up the general public just before the actual stargazing sessions.
