The Athanasius Kircher Society has posted video evidence of its Inaugural Meeting last month that packed the CUNY Graduate Center in New York City. Presenters included the real "Rain Man" Kim Peek, Col. Joe Kittinger, the "man who fell from space," and wunderkammer photographer Rosamond Purcell.
MAKE: editors were on hand as well, giving away copies of the first in our Maker Tales series of mini-books, titled "Athanasius Kircher's Magnetic Clock: Excerpted from the Travel Journal of Sir Robert Moray." The mini book is currently available as a gift to MAKE: subscribers only.
