Pale Blue Dot, Voyager 1 image Featured 2013 Print

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 Featured 2013 Print

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


Anti-proton experiment, Berkeley, 1955 Featured 2013 Print

Anti-proton experiment, Berkeley, 1955

Anti-proton experiment. Blackboard showing the provisional results and calculations for a series of experiments carried out in 1955 at the Berkeley Radiation Laboratory to discover the antiproton. Antiprotons were made by firing protons at a copper target in an early particle accelerator. This discovery of the antiproton by physicists Emilio Segre and Owen Chamberlain (together with a separate set of experiments by another group in 1956), confirmed Dirac's prediction of antimatter. Segre and Chamberlain were awarded the 1959 Nobel Prize in Physics for the discovery. Photographed on 6 October 1955, at the University of California, Berkeley, USA
