Amazing Scanning Electron Microscope Photos

Amazing Scanning Electron Microscope Photos
Amazing Scanning Electron Microscope Photos All these pictures are from the book 'Microcosmos,' created by Brandon Brill from London. This book includes many scanning electron microscope (SEM) images of insects, humanbody parts and household items. These are the most amazing images of what is too small tosee with the naked eye. 2-2-11 An ant, Formica fusca, holding a microchip Surface of an Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory silicon microchip Eyelash hairs growing from the surface of human skin The surface of a strawberry Bacteria on the surface of a human tongue Human sperm (spermatozoa) Nylon hooks and loops of Velcro Household dust: includes long hairs of cat fur, twisted synthetic and woolen fibers, serrated insect scales, a pollen grain, and plant and insect remains The weave of nylon stocking fibers The head of a mosquito Head louse clinging to a human hair Eight eyes (two groups of four) on the head of a tarantula Cut human hairs and shaving foam between two razor blades Mushrooms spores

Chasing Vivid Dreams Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation. ~Oscar Wilde July 26, 2010 ← Jul 25 • Jul 27 → I <3 Tumblr | stiqr | Disqus | bloglovin' Top Physics Simulations and Artwork Here is a 3D view of a hydrogren atom in the 4f state. The left image was made in C++ using a technique described by Krzysztof Marczak to make it volumetric like a cloud of smoke. The right image was made in Mathematica by adding 2D cross-sectional layers. POV-Ray has a built-in internal function for the 3d orbital: // runtime: 4 seconds camera{location 16*z look_at 0} #declare P=function{internal(53)}; #declare P0=P(0,3,0,0); box{-8,8 pigment{rgbt t} hollow interior{media{emission 0.5 density{function{(P(x,y,z,0)-1.2)/(P0-1.2)} color_map{[0 rgb 0][1 rgb 1]}}}}} Links Atomic Orbital - time-dependant hydrogen atom simulation, by ?

From the Photo Desk Toronto Star Picture Editor Wanda Goodwin couldn't resist showcasing these two Arctic fox pups at The Aquarium of the Pacific. Yes, another Daily Beast Cute Alert! Photos: Robin Riggs The two brothers who are just six-weeks old and can be viewed at the Aquarium’s Molina Animal Care Center. This little pup has one blue and one brown eye. As of now, the little guys don’t have names yet. Feynmann Diagrams La théorie des perturbations est un outil extrêmement pratique dans le calcul des probabilités des interactions dites faibles, dans un cadre classique (non relativiste). Par contre, lorsque l'on inclut à ce type d'interaction des particules fortement relativistes, cette théorie procure des résultats beaucoup trop compliqués à calculer, d'où l'intérêt de développer un nouvel outil permettant d'appliquer cette théorie des perturbations aux cas relativistes. Cet outil porte aujourd’hui le nom de diagramme de Feynman. Bien qu'ils permettent de visualiser les interactions entre les particules, les diagrammes de Feynman sont bien plus qu'une simple représentation schématique. Le but premier de cet outil est de réduire – considérablement - les calculs décrivant ces interactions en les réduisant à de simples variations d’amplitude de probabilité. Une grande partie de cet ouvrage traite de l'interaction entre deux électrons (ou positrons). Théorie des perturbations invariantes où ψ'=exp[iH0t].

From the Photo Desk An Australian astronomer spent 18 months photographing the night sky with an ordinary digital camera, turning thousands of pictures into a stunning time-lapse video. This image shows star trails above Elephant Rock on the Mornington Peninsula in South Victoria. Alex Cherney took advantage of the lack of light pollution from a remote peninsula on the south coast of Australia to record the dazzling scenes, showing how the sky changes at night. The pictures show planets, shooting stars, the Milky Way, the Moon, satellites and planes as well as rolling clouds, changing tides and passing ships on the horizon. Cherney, an IT consultant, spent six separate nights over 18 months shooting the sky — each with a new or crescent moon to ensure minimum interference from light. His spectacular images were then edited into a two-and-a-half minute video. “It was my daughter who got me into astronomy,” the 36-year-old father-of-two from Melbourne told the Daily Mail.

Marvel at the Magnificent Marble Caves [35 PICS] Can you imagine something happening that would endanger these exquisite azure caverns? It might if Chile continues with plans to build five hydro-power dams in Patagonia. Photo #7 by © Jorge Leon Cabello The water has eroded the marble to create cavities and marble caves. There are different color shades, depending on the contents’ impurities. Amazing geological formations on Chilean side of Lake Carrera. It would be a real shame if the hydro-power dams damage the lake and the marble caves on top of the surrounding natural habitats for wildlife. View of the lake and where to find the marble caverns in the Aysen region of Chile.
