It’s always a surprise to go digging in Seth’s basement – who knows what we’ll find! In this forage, tucked between boxes of old radio tubes and an electric banana, we stumble upon a rare view of Uranus’s rings… a preview of the Aurigid meteor shower… claims that we’re living in a computer simulation… and a ticket stub to the movie “Invasion.”
