A Carefully Selected List of Recommended Tools on Datavisualization When I meet with people and talk about our work, I get asked a lot what technology we use to create interactive and dynamic data visualizations. At Interactive Things, we have a set of preferred libraries, applications and services that we use regularly in our work. We will select the most fitting tool for the job depending on the requirements of the project. That’s why we have put together a selection of tools that we use the most and that we enjoy working with. Let me answer the most likely questions right away: No, not everything find its’ way into this list, so you might not find your personal favorite. Scientists develop “nanorobot” that can be programmed to target different diseases | sciencefreaks University of Florida researchers have moved a step closer to treating diseases on a cellular level by creating a tiny particle that can be programmed to shut down the genetic production line that cranks out disease-related proteins. In laboratory tests, these newly created “nanorobots” all but eradicated hepatitis C virus infection. The programmable nature of the particle makes it potentially useful against diseases such as cancer and other viral infections. The research effort, led by Y. Charles Cao, a UF associate professor of chemistry, and Dr. “This is a novel technology that may have broad application because it can target essentially any gene we want,” Liu said. During the past five decades, nanoparticles — particles so small that tens of thousands of them can fit on the head of a pin — have emerged as a viable foundation for new ways to diagnose, monitor and treat disease. Hepatitis C infection causes liver inflammation, which can eventually lead to scarring and cirrhosis.

Future - Science & Environment - Drake equation: How many alien civilizations exist? Are we alone? It is a question that has occupied mankind for centuries. Today, we live in an age of exploration, where robots on Mars and planet-hunting telescopes are beginning to allow us to edge closer to an answer. While we wait to establish contact, one technique we can use back on Earth is an equation that American astronomer Frank Drake formulated in the 1960s to calculate the number of detectable extraterrestrial civilizations may exist in the Milky Way galaxy. It is not a rigorous equation, offering a wide range of possible answers. Until ground-based observations, space telescopes and planet-roving robots uncover any tell-tale signs of life, what better way to speculate on how many intelligent alien civilizations may exist than to explore the universe with our interactive version of the equation.

12 Visualizations That Will Change the Way You View Scale in Your World Scale is a simple concept. From a very early age, children know about big and small, heavy and light, more and less. Extreme scales, however, are another story. Try to imagine, for example, the size of the universe… or $1 trillion made up entirely of dollar bills. Below are 12 visualizations that try to show things at extreme scales. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.

National Aviation Hall of Fame Theodore von Karman Scientist Enshrined 1983 The U.S. Army hired von Karman for a project, during which he and his co-workers discovered some new principles of airplane design. Since his contract did not call for these discoveries, the Army refused to pay his salary. Discovered air drag after seeing an airplane in Paris in 1908.During World War I he developed a tethered observation helicopter.His studies on air turbulence and supersonic drag were major achievements. Biography Hungarian-born Theodore von Kármán’s lifelong fascination with aviation began in 1908 when he witnessed a flight by Henri Farman near Paris. In 1913, he accepted the Chair of Aeronautics at the Technische Hochschule in Aachen, Germany. With the outbreak of World War I von Karman reported for duty with the Austro-Hungarian Army and served as a researcher. Wind tunnel studies of the new Douglas DC-1 airliner at the Guggenheim Laboratory led to greater streamlining and an increase in its top speed of 30 miles per hour.
