I discovered this the other day. The Internet Archive is “building a digital library of Internet sites and other cultural artifacts in digital form. Like a paper library, we provide free access to researchers, historians, scholars, and the general public.”
My current favourite video clip is: Horses on Mars from the SIGGRAPH Animations Library.
3.6 billion years ago, A microbe is blasted off its home planet from a meteor impact and embarks on a journey through the inner solar system. After spending time on other worlds, it decides home is best and tries to return – only to head in the wrong direction by mistake. Unable to ever return again, it has a stunning vision of home – and what lies ahead for it. The imagery mimicks the look of electron microscope imagery.
