    ChronoZoom is an open source, community collaboration between UC Berkeley, Moscow State University, and Microsoft Research that aims to cover - literally - life, the universe and everything, from the Big Bang to the present day. Visually stunning, if potentially overwhelming, Chronozoom works dynamically, based as it is on zoomable interactive timelines, to create a visual sense of the immensity of time - 13.7 billion years of "big history" - in a way that would be impossible in a static timeline. Still in its early stages at present, the site is limited to timelines and exhibits, but as geologist Walter Alvarez explains in the introductory video, further content will be developed in the future. Given the project’s ambitions, it is unsurprising that navigating the site can prove initially somewhat disorienting, but patient users will be rewarded with a powerful sense of the true scale of time over cosmic, geological, biological and social periods.

    Update

    This website brings together news of the latest science research from universities in the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada and the USA. There are four main categories: Earth and the Environment; Health & Medicine; Science & Technology and Society & Culture. Most of the news consists of articles illustrated with still photographs but some moving imagery is used, as in this article which looks at how quickly can glaciers grow (and melt)?, using a study of the prehistoric activity of Baffin Island’s glaciers with a view to developing accurate models to predict how climate change in the future will affect glaciers and ice sheets.

    Open Culture boasts that it offers "the best free cultural & educational media on the web" and their site does a lot to live up to that claim, providing access to a large number of free educational resources, including online courses, language lessons, films and audiobooks. More than simply a list of links, Open Culture is divided into various sections which provide users with a variety of different approaches to navigating the web’s cultural and educational resources, such as a section called 125 Great Science Videos, which is a selective list of films, sub-divided into narrower scientific headings such as Technology & Mathematics, Environment, Geology and & Ecology, Physics, Astronomy & Space Travel etc. Another useful section of the site is a round-up of Intelligent YouTube Channels, which does a good job of sorting the wheat from the chaff and includes a list of universities which have collections of material on YouTube, offering brief comments on each site.
