Second day of Spring Break, Watching Into the Universe with Stephen Hawking

Today is the second day of our Spring Break at Kent State University. So far, this has been a good rest bit.

Last night, Y and I had a long conversation with our friend Masaya in Japan thanks to AT&T’s offer of free U.S. to Japan telephone calls.

I also stayed up late building Star Wars Lego set 8038 The Battle of Endor.

Today, I had another fun run around Kent since the weather has significantly improved. Again thanks to AT&T, I was able to listen to NHK World on my iPhone, because I have an unlimited 3G data plan as long as I keep my current contract.

And now, I am watching Into the Universe with Stephen Hawking on the Science Channel. The topic of tonight’s episode is aliens. I have never seen this program before but I am impressed with the cgi visualizations and explanations provided by Prof. Hawking. I will have to add this show to a reminder so that I can see what the other episodes examine.
