33 Stunning Photos Of Our Amazing Planet Earth Taken By A Guy In Space

Wonderland by Kirsty Mitchell: heart-breakingly beautiful photographic series in memory of an extraordinary life Kirsty Mitchell's Wonderland series has been three years in the makingAll costumes, wigs and sets were constructed on a shoestring budgetSome images took up to five months to createShe would often wait an entire year to find the perfect natural setting for her shots By Stephanie Hirschmiller Published: 14:11 GMT, 17 May 2012 | Updated: 09:34 GMT, 18 May 2012 Kirsty Mitchell's late mother Maureen was an English teacher who spent her life inspiring generations of children with imaginative stories and plays. Following Maureen's death from a brain tumour in 2008, Kirsty channelled her grief into her passion for photography. She retreated behind the lens of her camera and created Wonderland, an ethereal fantasy world. 'Real life became a difficult place to deal with, and I found myself retreating further into an alternative existence through the portal of my camera,' said the artist. The resulting images looked so hyper-real that it was assumed that they were created in Photoshop.

Magenta Ain't A Colour A beam of white light is made up of all the colours in the spectrum. The range extends from red through to violet, with orange, yellow, green and blue in between. But there is one colour that is notable by its absence. You should have seen a green afterimage, but why is this significant? The afterimage always shows the colour that is complementary to the colour of the image. It is a common misconception that red is complementary to green. All the colours in the light spectrum have complements that exist within the spectrum – except green. The light spectrum consists of a range of wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation. When our eyes see colours, they are actually detecting the different wavelengths of the light hitting the retina. If the eye receives light of more than one wavelength, the colour generated in the brain is formed from the sum of the input responses on the retina.

What would you call them? -Me, when a friend asked me why they’re named what they are Ah, black holes. The ultimate shiver-inducer of the cosmos, out-jawing sharks, out-ooking spiders, out-scaring… um, something scary. But we’re fascinated by ‘em, have no doubt — even if we don’t understand a whole lot about them. But then, that’s why I’m here. So below I present ten facts about black holes — the third in my series of Ten Things You Don’t Know (the first was on the Milky Way; the second about the Earth). 1) It’s not their mass, it’s their size that makes them so strong. OK, first, a really quick primer on black holes. The most common way for a black hole to form is in the core of a massive star. As the core collapses, its gravity increases. The region around the black hole itself where the escape velocity equals the speed of light is called the event horizon. OK, so now you know what one is, and how they form. So there you go. Hmmm.

Salas de chat para trabajar en grupo Generalmente vemos herramientas colaborativas que se basan puntualmente en generar proyectos, tareas y asignar. Hall ofrece una variante muy interesante en la cual lo primordial no es eso, sino la conversación con el equipo de trabajo. Según ellos afirman, el futuro del trabajo en grupo estando en línea se basa en que los integrantes puedan conversar sobre el proyecto al mismo tiempo que se suban archivos, notas, videos y demás elementos. Pensándolo así, es algo que automaticamente suena útil sobretodo cuando estamos trabajando con alguien a una distancia importante, caso en el cual realizar una reunión se vuelve imposible o difícil de considerar. Primer punto a dejar claro: Utiliza acceso a nuestra cuenta en Facebook. Una vez accedamos al sitio solo queda hacer click en “Create a War Room” y accederemos a la sala donde vamos a trabajar. Desde ese sector también activamos o desactivamos la cámara, pudiendo generar una videoconferencia simple y efectiva. Web: Hall

Dream Catchers: Showcase of Ethereal Photography Jun 08 2012 Photographers are powerful artists, whose manipulations of the images they capture, if not just the images themselves, can be so breathtaking and dream-like, that they almost exist in another world. Images that feel like amazing moments stolen from someone’s slumber, rather than were taken in the same reality that we all inhabit. This kind of ethereal photography is what we are here to showcase today. Below you can take a walk through worlds so light and airy, created by a range of talented artists who have crafted these dreams and captured them to inspire others.
