M42: Inside the Orion Nebula
Image Credit: R. Villaverde, Hubble Legacy Archive, +NASA

The Great Nebula in Orion, an immense, nearby starbirth region, is probably the most famous of all astronomical nebulas. Here, glowing gas surrounds hot young stars at the edge of an immense interstellar molecular cloud only 1500 light-years away. In the above deep image composite in assigned colors taken by the Hubble Space Telescope wisps and sheets of dust and gas are particularly evident. The Great Nebula in Orion can be found with the unaided eye near the easily identifiable belt of three stars in the popular constellation Orion. In addition to housing a bright open cluster of stars known as the Trapezium, the Orion Nebula contains many stellar nurseries. These nurseries contain much hydrogen gas, hot young stars, proplyds, and stellar jets spewing material at high speeds. Also known as M42, the Orion Nebula spans about 40 light years and is located in the same spiral arm of our Galaxy as the Sun.

Am amazing series of images of our most amazing organ -- the brain via +Rich Pollett

Glassbrain flythrough HighEnd Realtime-Visualization of Brains

This is an anatomically-realistic 3D brain visualization depicting real-time source-localized activity (power and “effective” connectivity) from EEG (electroencephalographic) signals. Each color represents source power and connectivity in a different frequency band (theta, alpha, beta, gamma) and the golden lines are white matter anatomical fiber tracts. Estimated information transfer between brain regions is visualized as pulses of light flowing along the fiber tracts connecting the regions.

The modeling pipeline includes MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) brain scanning to generate a high-resolution 3D model of an individual’s brain, skull, and scalp tissue, DTI (Diffusion Tensor Imaging) for reconstructing white matter tracts, and BCILAB / SIFT to remove artifacts and statistically reconstruct the locations and dynamics (amplitude and multivariate Granger-causal interactions) of multiple sources of activity inside the brain from signals measured at electrodes on the scalp (in this demo, a 64-channel “wet” mobile system by Cognionics / BrainVision.

The final visualization is done in Unity3D and allows the user to fly around and through the brain with a gamepad while seeing real-time live brain activity from someone wearing an EEG cap.

A MOMENT OF PURE JOY -- This is my friend Caroline and her daughter  playing at sunset near English Bay, Vancouver.

So alive. So full of their childlike spirit. We need to make more time for play. These are the moments that matter.

Love mountain hiking? Elevation? Comedy? Saving the world? Here's an event tailored for you! On 4th October 2014 Mount Everest Base Camp will play host to “Stand up on Everest” at 5365m above sea level.

Stewart Francis, Craig Campbell, Glenn Wool, Terry Alderton, Simon Evans and Rhys Darby will be joined by up to fifty eager fans on a gruelling nine day trek high into the Nepal Himalaya. At Base Camp they will perform on a purpose built stage to their fellow trekkers and any climbers awaiting their turn to summit the World’s highest mountain.

This is designed as a TV documentary, The Production Company has been outsourced to One Tribe TV and have the job of getting this project commissioned.

The nominated Charity for Stand Up On Everest is In Aid of Save The Children. The theme for Stand Up on Everest is providing children a better start in life. Save the Children are established in Nepal with many projects already helping children in Nepal.

The Antennae Galaxies in Collision
Image Credit: Hubble Legacy Archive, +NASA, +European Space Agency, ESA; Processing & Copyright: Davide Coverta

Two galaxies are squaring off in Corvus and here are the latest pictures. When two galaxies collide, the stars that compose them usually do not. That's because galaxies are mostly empty space and, however bright, stars only take up only a small amount of that space. During the slow, hundred million year collision, one galaxy can still rip the other apart gravitationally, and dust and gas common to both galaxies does collide. In this clash of the titans, dark dust pillars mark massive molecular clouds are being compressed during the galactic encounter, causing the rapid birth of millions of stars, some of which are gravitationally bound together in massive star clusters.

We are all made up of star dust.. How can such destruction be so beautiful to look at?

I was at Jackson's Meat's today around 3:30PM Feb 4th. I would keep the tall blonde redheaded sales person and fire the female and ESL (possibly Italian sales clerk) who looked at me with my purchase and walked away on their cell phones. Great meat. Questionable staff.
