Our Mr. Sun

I found an entertaining science video from 1956 called Our Mr. Sun. It’s pretty ridiculous, but there’s some value therein. It includes some interesting illustrations, animation, and infographics. They don’t have anything on some modern infographics I’ve seen, but they’re cool all the same.

One infographic particular (at 35:15) references population growth on earth. I found this particularly interesting having just posted about National Geographic’s 7 Billion campaign. Overall, there are some gems to be found throughout.
