Dr. J. Dubinski from U Toronto has released his DVD as a torrent -- freely available to all.

For anyone who has interest in viewing astrophysical simulations, this is the disc for you!

Thank you Dr. Dubinski!!

Strangely enough, the musician John Kameel Farah who worked with Dr. Dubinski on this DVD has been highlighted today on the CBC Radio 2 website. What a coincidence!

I got the file but Nero doesn't burn dvd with .img files. Which program to use? Must be freely downloadable.

Smallphi, use ImgBurn - http://www.videohelp.com/tools/ImgBurn - just click on "mirror download". It will write .img as well as .iso files to DVD disk.

Do yourself a favour and uninstall that Nero bloatware!

Thanks, that worked. Both the animation/simulations and the music are awesome.
