SciEye celebrates SL6B, Second Life’s 6th birthday, at SciLands exhibit

August 10, 2009
SPNN News, SL6thBirthday continent, Second Life – In the summer of 2009, Second Life celebrated its 6th birthday, inviting groups to display their information at symbolic builds on a 20-region continent created for the occasion.

Some of the SciLands Senators [island owners/admins] at our SL6B exhibit. Clicking on an island tile rezzes a rotating cube showing 4 representative pictures from the island.  Then hop on top of the cube by right-clicking it and choosing ‘sit here’ for a fun carousel ride!

This is a picture shot with a ‘noontime setting.’

This crystal mountain with each facet’s top surface showing one SciLands isle’s overhead view was designed and built by Adrienne J. Gauthier (SL: Ourania Fizgig) and her student Alan Myhre (SL name) from Astronomy 2009 island/region with textures provided by SciLander volunteers.

SciEye’s 1st stop in my tour of the SciLands is the epynomous Science Friday island.

Science Friday is a wide-ranging weekly science news and interviews radio show on, yes, Fridays back in RL (Real Life). Join us in Second Life at 11am SLT!

Here’s larger versions of the same 3 photos of the SL version of the show at FlickR.  [update Jan 18th – I’ve added 5 pics of the 3rd home island show as well.]  I can’t offer a tour of Science Friday island yet, because the terraforming landshapers and exhibit builders are still designing on this newly-birthed island.   Here’s the archived podcast of the first Science Friday show co-hosted in RL & SL: Virtual Worlds, Virtual Lives, broadcast on Friday August 31st, 2007.  All of their shows are archived at their website.

The SciEye column’s next SciLands stop is Mars, in Exploratorium.  I’ve gotten word that an asteroid is inbound …
