Last week, I took a GigaPan of which this following snapshot was extracted, www.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=27578&snapshot_id=84354, and because of the comment of Kilgore's, I again became interested in the life of William Herschel and of his sister, Caroline, especially the astronomical achievements that the two Herschel's made (newhumanist.org.uk/1508 ) while living in Bath, England (from a GigaPan; Zoom Baby, Zoom, their house can be seen here: www.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=9802&snapshot_id=85077).
Today in the New York Times, there is a review of a book concerning exactly what I am searching for and is entitled, The Age of Wonder (tinyurl.com/mr6zk4 ), which I would very much like to look at, but Fondren does not have it; however they have another book (The Georgian Star) concerning Mr. Herschel and his sister that I took a fancy to and drove over to the library to get, BUT before going in, I wanted to take a GigaPan of the north side of Brochstein Pavilion and this GigaPan is the result :)
With the price of gasoline as it is, it is expensive to be driving back and forth to Fondren all the time and I should maybe consider just to buy a book at the bookstore; however, there is no bookstore in all of the world that has the panoramic vistas that Rice University has and each time I travel there, I see at least one view that I had not noticed before.
