Satellites are my work and we have been in the web this week. See Space.Com or Flatoday.com or the BBC news. In our own words at the SSTL site.

Phillipe Pot's tomb at The Louvre has always summarised 'medaeval' for me. Whilst the Winged Victory of Samothrace sets off the opposite emotions. Unfortunately, I don't think the camera angle used for these virtual-reality tours does justice to either, but it's still nice to visit. These two hyper links also show one of the big problems with frames: you can't link to something in its original context. If you want to get to the Louvre home page, you will have to use this link.

More ancient history than I can comprehend is on line at the Perseus Project Home Page. Like a library, you can't find your way around this instantly, but if you take the time, there are real gems everywhere. I found some of the source text from Herodotus concerning the cities recently discovered undersea at the mouth of the Nile.

The location of Herakleion under the Mediterranean off of Alexandria piqued my curiosity, but there isn't much good on the web about it. The diver's website has the most information.

Panoramas of gardens at the Chelsea Flower Show are entertaining, although the viewing window is a bit square to give a good feeling of virtual reality.
The Hampster Dance, once a minor jolly joke, now seems to be a DOTCOM. I wonder if we can get in on the IPO?
