Pale Blue Dot, Voyager 1 image

This unique narrow-angle color image is of the Earth, dubbed 'Pale Blue Dot', is a part of the first ever 'portrait' of the solar system taken by Voyager 1. The spacecraft acquired a total of 60 frames for a mosaic of the solar system from a distance of more than 4 billion miles from Earth and about 32 degrees above the ecliptic. From Voyager's great distance Earth is a mere point of light, less than the size of a picture element even in the narrow-angle camera. Earth was a crescent only 0.12 pixel in size. Coincidentally, Earth lies right in the center of one of the scattered light rays resulting from taking the image so close to the sun. This blown-up image of the Earth was taken through three color filters -- violet, blue and green -- and recombined to produce the color image. The background features in the image are artifacts resulting from the magnification

SEM diamond stylus travelling through LP grooves

Scanning electron micrograph of a diamond stylus travelling through the grooves of a long-playing, stereo record. The grooves are cut into a flat disc of polyvinyl chloride. The groove varies with the intensity of the music: the straighter the groove the quieter the music, the wavier the groove (as here) the louder the music. The stylus picks up the music modulation from the sloping sides & transmits it to the cartridge, where a piezoelectric crystal or an electromagnet converts the vibration into an electrical signal. Although thoroughly cleaned, this needle is encrusted with dirt. Magnification: x30 at 35mm size, x220 at 8x10-inch size. Reference: MICROCOSMOS, figure 9.16, page 182

David Hilbert, caricature

David Hilbert (1862-1943). Caricature of the German mathematician David Hilbert. Hilbert is regarded by many as one of the greatest mathematicians of all time. He was educated at Konigsberg and Heidelberg, taught at Konigsberg and became professor of mathematics at Gottingen in 1895. His first work was in number theory, creating a general theory of invariants. He later applied this to topology, developing the concept of infinite-dimensional Hilbert Space. This opened the way for quantum theorists such as Schrodinger, Heisenberg and Dirac. Hilbert also championed formalism in mathematical logic and philosophy, inspiring Godel to formulate his opposing theory of mathematical inconsistency
