The latest episode of Designing Worlds – a return visit to the fascinating Second Life Museum of Nuclear Warfare – is now on the web!

In this episode, we join the Director and Curator of the Museum, OtakuSenpai Button to take a look at how different nations have tackled the idea of civil defence against the dangers of nuclear warfare, and memorials at the Museum to the results of nuclear accidents. We conclude with a deeply moving display of drawings created by children who survived the horrors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

It’s a fascinating show – both in terms of the content Otaku has gathered, and also in terms of demonstrating how Second Life can be used for a learning experience.
