The Invisible Universe

The Invisible Universe
The more closely we observe something the more it seems to disappear. In this humorous, but insightful, TED Talk you will realize just how much of the universe is invisible. Strangely enough, what we can't see is often more important than what we can!

Extraordinary is what it is we cannot see. So much happens while we trip along our merry way oblivious to the invisible. This is the kind of talk that makes my mind go. The last thought, in this talk, sure makes me laugh.

This is definitely an eye opener that could set your mind in a whirl.
