Affiche scientifique Le site Affiche scientifique présente divers documents (guides, normes, gabarits et autres) rassemblés pour vous permettre de découvrir et considérer les aspects d'une affiche scientifique (poster), c'est -à-dire pour franchir toutes les étapes du processus menant à sa réalisation et pour contribuer à faire de votre projet une réussite! L'affiche est un moyen de communication, un moyen de faire passer un message. L'affiche scientifique permet de vulgariser suffisamment le contenu (résultats de recherche) pour que le destinataire moins avisé le comprenne et pour qu'un destinataire avisé apprenne des éléments nouveaux. Cette affiche doit donc être pensée en fonction du message à livrer, du public auquel il est destiné et de la nature de l'événement où il sera dévoilé. Dans ce type de communication, l'importance que revêt le contenant est aussi considérable que l'est celle du choix des contenus. L'oeil du public est d'abord attiré, puis le contenu le retient : le message est livré!

NASA GISS: NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies ISS HD Earth Viewing Experiment on USTREAM Black Image = International Space Station (ISS) is on the night side of the Earth. No Audio = Normal. There is no audio by design. For a display of the real time ISS location plus the HDEV imagery, visit here: The High Definition Earth Viewing (HDEV) experiment aboard the ISS was activated April 30, 2014. Analysis of this experiment will be conducted to assess the effects of the space environment on the equipment and video quality which may help decisions about cameras for future missions.

The Solar System: The Sun, Planets, Dwarf Planets, Moons, Asteroids, Comets, Meteors, and Solar System Formation Our solar system is filled with a wide assortment of celestial bodies - the Sun itself, our eight planets, dwarf planets, and asteroids - and on Earth, life itself! The inner solar system is occasionally visited by comets that loop in from the outer reaches of the solar system on highly elliptical orbits. In the outer reaches of the solar system, we find the Kuiper Belt and the Oort cloud. Still farther out, we eventually reach the limits of the heliosphere, where the outer reaches of the solar system interact with interstellar space. Solar system formation began billions of years ago, when gases and dust began to come together to form the Sun, planets, and other bodies of the solar system.

Flatland 2: Sphereland | John Guy Collick Flatland 2: Sphereland is the sequel to the movie Flatland which I mentioned in a blog post last year. It’s a charming 36 minute animated short based on the original novel by Edwin Abbott, and one of the book’s own sequels Sphereland: A Fantasy About Curved Spaces and an Expanding Universe, written in 1965 by the Dutch mathematician Dionys Burger. The story takes place twenty years after the original, in which the Flatlander Arthur Square (Martin Sheen) and his daughter Hex (Kristen Bell) discovered the third dimension with the help of Spherius, a denizen of that realm voiced by Michael York. Her grandfather is now dead and Hex is ridiculed by the inhabitants of Flatland who still refuse to believe in the existence of dimensions beyond their own. The Flatlander’s rocket ship However one of the navigators, Puncto, has found an anomaly. Hex and Puncto discuss the triangulation anomaly Spherius visits the fourth dimension
