James Webb Telescope Space Deployment Sequence | NASA
NASA's James Webb Space Telescope is the successor to the Hubble Space Telescope, the most powerful infrared science observatory ever to be sent into space. The James Webb Space Telescope is the scientific successor to NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. It will be the most powerful space telescope ever built. Webb is an international project led by NASA with its partners, the European Space Agency and the Canadian Space Agency.

From its orbit nearly a million miles from Earth, Webb will study some of the most distant objects in the universe—but first it has to get there. Webb will be folded up inside the rocket that launches it into space, gradually unfurling as it travels to its destination beyond the Moon. This video depicts Webb's journey into orbit, capturing both its travel time and distance and its transformation as it deploys.

A new Chinese supercomputer, the Sunway TaihuLight, captured the number one spot on the latest TOP500 list of supercomputers released on Monday morning at the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) being held in Frankfurt, Germany. With a Linpack mark of 93 petaflops, the system outperforms the former TOP500 champ, Tianhe-2, by a factor of three. The machine is powered by a new ShenWei processor and custom interconnect, both of which were ...

Introduction

Every photograph is rectangular, photographers rarely if ever going away, from that shape. Society also seems to be trapped in a boxy world rarely going away from those right angles. Nature how ever is all about the circle or sphere. We see through circular eyes, we live on a  spherical planet. Flowers, and fruit are circular or spherical. So why is it that humanity must make every thing into a single box. The lens on the camera is circular producing a circular image. The camera industry how ever crops that off and makes a box. No matter what form the composition takes in a photographers' photograph it will always be confined to that one rectangle. Humanity always seems to be trying to bend nature to their own will. But Nature at times, will come back at humanity and break up these boxes. Photography that shows nature absorbing humanity and their boxes will begin to fix this trend. While not initially breaking the rectangular photograph or the composition to fit in that square. Photographs of man kinds legacy slowly decaying and being absorbed by the natural world starts to bring balance to the one box ways of humanity. The rest must come from the photographer breaking off from the norm, perhaps building his or her own camera. Or creating new compositions from many different shapes or combinations there of.


Fair warning, any one sharing cat photos/memes will be immediately removed from my circles.
