Infinity Imagined

Infinity Imagined
A stereo image of Jupiter’s atmosphere, derived from data collected by the Juno spacecraft during perijove 3. These images, taken at different point in the orbit, can be combined to reveal the 3D structure and relief of clouds in the southern atmosphere. To see the image in 3D, relax the eyes until the white circles overlap, then look at the image. Alternatively the image can be viewed with Google Cardboard or another VR device.

PLANÈTE Archives Le droniste canadien David Etienne Durivage nous livre des images exceptionnelles de tigres de Sibérie filmés dans la neige. Captivés et intrigués par l’engin, nos majestueux félins tenteront de l’attraper, mais sans réussite pour notre plus grand plaisir. L’ancien musicien désormais réalisateur, producteur et pilote de drone canadien David Etienne Durivage a... Trois femelles ocelots sauvages et leur portée ont été repérées au Texas grâce à des pièges photographiques. Une excellente nouvelle pour cette espèce grandement menacée dans la région qui montre des premiers signes de redressement. Alors que les populations d’ocelots se portent bien en Amérique centrale et du Sud,... Photo Tour of The Solar System (Part 1) If possible, the first images in each set will be true-color, as you would see them with your own eyes. Most images will either be true-color or monochrome (black and white), unless stated otherwise. Many images can be vastly enlarged by clicking on them and choosing a larger size from the Flickr page. Downloading them may allow even larger sizes. It appears there's a limit to the size of diaries, so this first part of the tour ends about 3/4 of the way through the Saturn system (which is quite extensive). I.

SETI: The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence National Aeronautics and Space Administration NASA History Office SETI: The Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence Since the beginning of civilization, people have wondered if we are alone in the universe or whether there is intelligent life somewhere else. In the late twentieth century, scientists converged upon the basic idea of scanning the sky and "listening" for non-random patterns of electromagnetic emissions such as radio or television waves in order to detect another possible civilization somewhere else in the universe. Accidentally Vegan Grocery stores carry an array of great-tasting vegan options, including some items that you might not know are vegan. “Accidentally vegan“ foods are those that were not created intentionally to be marketed to vegan eaters. Many products, including faux franks; veggie burgers; chicken-free chicken patties; flavored soy, almond, and rice milks; nondairy ice creams; and other sensational snacks, are marketed to vegetarians and vegans. However, there’s also an abundance of chips, dips, cookies, candies, frozen pies, soups, and other mouthwatering items produced by some of the most well-known brands that are also vegan

Baphomet "Bahomet" redirects here. It is not to be confused with Bahamut. The 19th century image of a Sabbatic Goat, created by Eliphas Levi. The arms bear the Latin words SOLVE (separate) and COAGULA (join together), i.e., the power of "binding and loosing" usurped from God and, according to Catholic tradition, from the ecclesiastical hierarchy acting as God's representative on Earth.

Oubliez votre drone, il n'arrive pas à la cheville des robots volants de Festo Festo, une entreprise allemande spécialisée dans le domaine de l’automatisation industrielle, a profité du USA Science & Engineering Festival de Washington D.C. pour lever le voile sur ses derniers robots volants. IEEE Spectrum était présent sur place et nos confrères ont profité de l’occasion pour réaliser une vidéo saisissante. Elle risque d’ailleurs de coller un sacré coup de vieux à votre drone. L’USA Science & Engineering Festival se déroule tous les deux ans à la capitale américaine et il est l’occasion pour toutes les entreprises du secteur des nouvelles technologies de faire la démonstration de leurs derniers produits et de leurs derniers services. Ce drôle de robot ne ressemble pas vraiment à un robot, pas vrai ? Peu connu du grand public, cet événement a une portée mondiale et il attire ainsi chaque année des centaines de millions de visiteurs.

Random awesomeness It’s been a week without my bike and I already miss it. My computer is like Frankenstein these days, I really hope this doesn’t catch fire or fry everything. Relativistic Cosmology Back to main course page John D. Norton Department of History and Philosophy of Science University of Pittsburgh Einstein's Great Book of Universes The arrival of Einstein's general theory of relativity marked a rebirth of interest and work in cosmology, the study of the universe on the largest scale.

Everyday Flexitarian More and more people are choosing to eat less meat. It is estimated that 30 to 40 percent of the population of the United States and Canada is flexitarian. But what is a flexitarian? Is it a vegetarian who occasionally eats meat, or is it a "mindful meat eater" who occasionally seeks out vegetarian meals? Psychopomp In Jungian psychology, the psychopomp is a mediator between the unconscious and conscious realms. It is symbolically personified in dreams as a wise man or woman, or sometimes as a helpful animal. In many cultures, the shaman also fulfills the role of the psychopomp. This may include not only accompanying the soul of the dead, but also vice versa: to help at birth, to introduce the newborn child's soul to the world (p. 36 of).[2] This also accounts for the contemporary title of "midwife to the dying", or "End of Life Doula" which is another form of psychopomp work.

Top 100 Astronomers You’ve Probably Never Heard Of How many of the faces above do you recognise? For a long time, I’ve wanted to investigate the the “who’s who” of astronomy via the literature but haven’t had the means. I’ve teamed up with Andy Casey who has written a neat ADS-python module to access the ADS publication database. It is still early days at the moment so we’ve mainly been brainstorming but we figured we should start with the basics: most cited astronomers. There will be more posts to follow as we have more ideas under construction. sukekomashi-gaijin - Tonari No Totoro Today, Opera becomes the first major browser after Apple’s Safari to introduce support for the Touch Bar in a final version.
