Robonaut: Home Robonaut: Home Robonaut 2 is one step closer to earning its keep on the International Space Station. R2 got its first taste of real work on Wednesday. The crew and ground team had completed all its initial checkouts, and Tuesday installed heat sinks in both of the robot’s forearms to allow it to better dissipate heat and work for longer periods of time. The first humanoid robot in space was sent to the space station with the intention of eventually taking over tasks too dangerous or mundane for astronauts, and the first such task identified for it was monitoring air velocity. Astronauts onboard the space station generally have to measure the air flow in front of vents inside the station to ensure that none of the ventilation ductwork gets clogged or blocked. The task involves holding a gauge in front of vents in five different locations on the station and taking several measurements of the air flow every 90 days or so.

This video recently exceeded 1 million views on YouTube, which is great for a timelapse of clouds!

Free Electron Laser - Wiggler Magnet Free Electron Laser - Wiggler Magnet Free Electron Laser - Wiggler Magnet As the electron beam passes between the copper colored magnets, it changes directions. The poles of the magnets alternate, so the electron beam is forced to wiggle up and down. Any wiggling electric charge emits electromagnetic radiation. The type of electromagnetic radiation produced depends on how quickly the charge wiggles. Slower wiggles can make radio waves or microwaves, while faster wiggles can make x-rays.
Is there any quantum mechanics in laser-induced double ionization? 21st February 2014 The multi-electron dynamics in atoms and molecules is a great challenge in contemporary quantum physics, with implications from chemical reactions to superconductivity. A classical example, much investigated over the last two decades, has been the so-called "nonsequential" double ionization (NSDI) of atoms by an intense laser field, where "nonsequential" means that ionization does not happen one step at a time, viz. ionization of the atom later followed by ionization of the positively charged ion, but rather in one combined process.

HubbleSOURCE: Photoshop FITS Liberator If you are reading this you are probably an admirer of the beautiful color images produced year after year by the Hubble news team. Until now it was difficult for anyone other than a trained astronomer to create images like these from the original grayscale Hubble data. That’s because Hubble data is stored in a special “flavor” of the FITS (Flexible Image Transport System) data format that has been nearly impossible to open in common photo editing software, such as Adobe Photoshop. Now, thanks to a collaboration between ESA, ESO and NASA, a free software plugin is available that enables anyone with Adobe Photoshop CS (and, to a limited degree, other versions of Photoshop and certain other image editors) to open Hubble (and other) FITS data and process it to create finished, conventional-format digital images. The FITS Photoshop Liberator is available for download from this ESA Space Telescope site. HubbleSOURCE: Photoshop FITS Liberator
