#BibbulmunTrack  

I started hiking the 1,000 kilometre Bibbulmun Track in Western Australia, arriving in Denmark a few days ago for a much needed rest after a storm blew in off the ocean bringing 125 kilometre an hour winds, seeming to almost sweep the shelter away. I will post some photos in the near future, so look out for them. Cheers.

Now robots can take over! From large nano prosthetics to the infinitesimally small the New York Times reports on a brand new robot created at Stanford that can physically record brain activity in fruit flies. Less commonly known as drosophila these insects are commonly used for micro-brain research; and now a 5,000$ robot can study 1,000 of these flies in under 10 hours! Read more below:

Cosmic Penguins

Hubble image of Arp 142



This image shows the two galaxies interacting. NGC 2936, once a standard spiral galaxy, and NGC 2937, a smaller elliptical, bear a striking resemblance to a penguin guarding its egg. This image is a combination of visible and infrared light, created from data gathered by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope Wide Field Planetary Camera 3 (WFC3).

To some, it may look like a portal into the distant universe. To others, it may appear as the eye of a giant. Given poetic license, both are correct. Pictured here is a standard fisheye view of the sky -- but with an unusual projection. The view is from a perch in New Zealand called Te Mata Peak, a name that translates from the Maori language as "Sleeping Giant". The wondrous panorama shows the band of our Milky Way Galaxy right down the center of the sky, with the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds visible to the right. The red hue is atmospheric airglow that surprised the photographer as it was better captured by the camera than the eye. This image was taken two weeks ago as the photographer's sister, on the left, and an acquaintance peered into the sky portal.

Lights of an Aurora | International Space Station | NASA
June 24, 2015: Aurora in green and red from International Space Station. NASA Astronaut Scott Kelly captured this photo of an aurora from the International Space Station on June 23, 2015. The dancing lights of the aurora provide spectacular views on the ground, but also capture the imagination of scientists who study incoming energy and particles from the sun. Aurora are one effect of such energetic particles, which can speed out from the sun both in a steady stream called the solar wind and due to giant eruptions known as coronal mass ejections or CMEs.
