The Antikythera Mechanism

Lee Arnold sends this along, and says:

Nature magazine has put up a great new video about the Antikythera mechanism. It includes computer animations of the mechanism from 3-D x- rays of the object and someone who is building a working replica. 

This is an astounding thing.

The video is here.
