Seeing-history-through-battlestar-galactica-glasses


Museum technician Drew Robarge examines a mysterious pair of eyeglasses for clues about their origins. This history mystery is presented in American Sign Language (ASL).

"When an inventory specialist working in the museum's medicine collection announced that she had discovered a pair of Battlestar Galactica glasses, I—a huge science fiction fan who often likes to imagine that he defends the human race against the Cylons—quickly commandeered the glasses for a closer look."
