Paul Doherty (a.k.a. Patio Plasma), senior scientist at San Francisco’s Exploratorium chats with MSNBC science editor Alan Boyle about eclipse/transit angles; how and where to see this month’s eclipse and next month’s once-in-a-lifetime transit safely; Explo activities and events and using virtual worlds - particularly Second Life - for outreach/education/science experiences.
