Origami in Space

At this point I would just like to apologize since I have not been posting the most up-to-date items. I am currently going through my very backlogged archives of cool stuff, and frankly will continue to do so for the next few posts. Just remember that art – and science – are timeless, and since I feel these sorts of projects don’t get enough publicity anyway, it is always good to be reminded of what came before.

Now, on to our next installment:

Robert Lang, Origami Master – this video clip from WIRED magazine and PBS features Robert Lang discussing how the principles of origami are quite applicable to science, especially (at least most recently) outer space exploration and telescopes.
