Solar System Scope A Collection of Mesmerizing Rain Photography Jul 27 2012 Whilst we all enjoy a nice sunny day, rain can result in some really interesting photography. There is something inherently emotive about rain, as the tirade of water is at the same time cleansing and intensely life giving. Generally speaking, whilst rain can be disheartening or cold for us, rain photography focuses on the romantic side of the weather.

Nanotechnology is coming by Ralph C. Merkle, Principal Fellow, Zyvex This is the English original of an article translated into German and published in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung of Monday, September 11 2000 on page 55. In the coming decades nanotechnology could make a supercomputer so small it could barely be seen in a light microscope. Not long ago, such a forecast would have been ridiculed. At its heart, the coming revolution in manufacturing is a continuation of trends that date back decades and even centuries. The remarkably low manufacturing cost comes from self replication. While nanotechnology does propose to use self replication, it does not propose to copy living systems. Now that the feasibility of nanotechnology is widely accepted, we enter the next phase of the public discussion: what policies should we adopt to best deal with it? Self replication is at the heart of many policy discussions. Consider, for example, the difference between a bird and an airplane. Further reading:

Photoshop? NO. These Are Real Animals Katerina Plotnikova did something extremely amazing! She used no photoshop! All poses and animals are real! 99 Brilliant Examples of Infrared Photography In Infrared Photography, the film or image sensor used is sensitive to infrared light. The part of the spectrum used is referred to as near-infrared to distinguish it from far-infrared, which is the domain of thermal imaging. Wavelengths used for photography range from about 700 nm to about 900 nm. To record the “invisible light” has always been an intriguing and fascinating experiment for photographers. There are many ways to attack photography and some are much more expensive than others. You may be interested in the following related articles as well.

Comet 'brighter than the moon' will fly-by the Earth in 2013 By Eddie Wrenn Published: 08:45 GMT, 27 September 2012 | Updated: 13:28 GMT, 27 September 2012 They are one of the most spectacular views a human could hope to see - and next year a comet which could outshine the moon is due to fly by the Earth. Comet ISON is visiting the inner solar system and is set to put on spectacular views for the Northern Hemisphere across November and December as it heads towards the sun. It may prove to be brighter than any comet of the last century - visible even in broad daylight - and this may end up being its one and only trip to the solar system, as its trajectory may see it plunge into the sun in a fiery death. Scroll down for video Look to the skies next year: Comet ISON could produce a spectacular show when it flies by next year - similar to the 1997 appearance of Hale-Bopp (pictured) How Hale-Bopp looked above Alaska: Next year's comet is predicted to be even more spectacular, and remain in the skies for weeks

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.
