This is my portrait of Steven Sasson, inventor of the digital camera. He was the 32nd inventor in my project. I shot him in October at Kodak’s headquarters in Rochester, just a couple weeks before President Obama awarded him the National Medal of Technology. When he initially mentioned that the first digital camera held 30 pictures, I assumed that was due to the storage capacity of the digital tape. It was really interesting to hear that he picked 30 as an artificial limitation, and his explanation why. 8 Jules Verne Inventions That Came True (Pictures) ScienceWorld. Video: Roiling Sun Captured From All Angles. When it comes to solar storms, there’s no longer any place to hide.

Video: Roiling Sun Captured From All Angles

For the first time, solar scientists have obtained simultaneous views of the entire sun, both the front and back sides. The unprecedented 360-degree panorama, released by NASA on Feb. 6, combines sharp images of the sun’s front side recorded by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory with those from NASA’s twin Stereo spacecraft, which have just begun an eight-year exploration of the rotating sun’s far side. Images of the far side, recorded up to 14 days before they rotate into view from Earth, will enable scientists to better predict solar storms that can damage satellites and disrupt communications and power systems on Earth.

The images can also capture eruptions on the back side so short-lived that they disappear before that region of the sun rotates into view, says Stereo scientist Joseph Gurman of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.

Carr and H. Craighead, Cornell. The world's smallest guitar is 10 micrometers long -- about the size of a single cell -- with six strings each about 50 nanometers, or 100 atoms, wide. Clearest images of Corona ever taken during solar eclipse. Posted by kobaxe on ShareThis Share 201 Here are few spectacular images of the corona, the outer magnetic field of sun, which is in the form of a shell of super-hot gas. It is hard to imagine a temperature of around 2,000,000c in general and much harder to see it due to unbearable brightness. But, the eclipse hunter Miloslav Druckmuller provided these stunning images which he took on the Marshall Islands in July 2009. The image is a montage and is a combination of 38 images taken at the spot with exposure time between 1/125 seconds and 8 seconds.

I am sure that these images will mesmerize you for a while. 62 Miles Beneath the Sea! Deepest Ocean in the Solar System Discovered on Jupiter's Europa. The deepest ocean on Earth is the Pacific Ocean's Marianas Trench, which reaches a depth of 6.8 miles awesomely trumped by the depth of the ocean on the Jupiter's moon, Europa, which some measurements put at 62 miles.

62 Miles Beneath the Sea! Deepest Ocean in the Solar System Discovered on Jupiter's Europa

That's deep! Although Europa is covered in a thick crust of scarred and cross-hatched ice, measurements made by NASA's Galileo spacecraft and other probes strongly suggest that a liquid ocean lies beneath that surface. First Quantum Effects Seen in Visible Object. Science has proved contradiction.

First Quantum Effects Seen in Visible Object

Unless, of course, we know that contradiction is impossible, and that the law of non-contradiction was used in the process of "proving" contradiction, making it a self-defeating argument. Now, any rational person will know that nothing can be and not be at the same time, so this whole thing is absurd on its face, unless you take it to mean both are happening in some kind of figurative, unreal sense, in which case the article is luridly, and I suspect purposefully, misleading.

While groundbreaking ideas such as quantum theory, relativity and even the Earth going around the Sun might be commonly accepted now, science still continues to show that the universe contains things you might find it difficult to believe, and even more difficult to get your head around. Theoretically, the lowest temperature that can be achieved is absolute zero, exactly ? 273.15°C, where the motion of all particles stops completely. Watch the Program (full-screen)

This is the world of "string theory," a way of describing every force and all matter from an atom to earth, to the end of the galaxies—from the birth of time to its final tick, in a single theory, a "Theory of Everything.

By Duncan Geere, Wired UK The last time a wet dog looked Andrew Dickerson in the eye, readying a shake, he didn’t flee in terror like most people would.

Instead, like any true physicist, he whipped out a slow-motion video camera to see if he could capture the exact frequency at which its body was oscillating. Dickerson, along with some colleagues from the Georgia Institute of Technology, has written “The Wet-Dog Shake,” published in Fluid Dynamics. CanvasMol - 3D molecular rendering.
