Pale Blue Dot, Voyager 1 image Featured November 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

Barral & Bixios meteorological flight Featured November Print

Barral & Bixios meteorological flight

On July 27, 1850, two French agronomists, Jacques Alexandre Bixio and Jean Augustin Barral, made an ascent by a hydrogen-filled balloon from the garden of the Paris Observatory. They had seven objectives which included measuring the effect of altitude on the decrease of temperature, the variation in solar radiation, hygrometry, chemical analysis of air, the polarization of light by clouds and other optical phenomena. They were equipped with 2 barometers, 3 thermometers, a Walferdin minimum thermometer, a hydrometer and an Arago polariscope. They reached a height of 7016 metres where the temperature had fallen to -39 degrees F
