THE BLACK HOLE EARTH Theorists have already begun to venture guesses as to what might be going on inside SmB6. One promising approach models the material as a higher-dimensional black hole

Inferring from Infrared

Imagine if there was a way to know which watermelon is sweeter? When is that avocado going to ripen? How many calories, carbs or protein is in that shake? How your plants are doing? What's in those pills your taking? A new low-cost handheld sensor on the market promises all those answers and more, in real time (https://www.consumerphysics.com/myscio/scio). The technology is based on near infrared spectroscopy. How does it work?

Calorific Rays: We all know that a prism can separate ordinary light into the vibrant colors of the rainbow. Back in 1800, musician and astronomer William Herschel wanted to know the temperature of each color. By placing a thermometer with a blackened bulb along the spectrum, he discovered that the red end was warmer than the blue. To his surprise, a thermometer placed just beyond the visible red part of the spectrum was even warmer. He had discovered infrared rays, although he didn't realize it at the time. This is the same heat that you feel when you hold your hand near a fire.

Bond. Covalent Bond. Shaken and Stirred: Chemicals are arrangements of atoms, held together by bonds. You can think of these bonds as tiny springs in motion. They stretch, wiggle, rotate and twist. When they absorb energy, the natural vibrations of bonds increase. Because of quantum mechanical constraints, these increases occur only to discrete energy levels. Different bond types (C-O, or C-H) and different vibration modes result in a series of absorptions at different wavelengths. By looking at which wavelengths of light were absorbed by a compound, we can deduce what types of chemical bonds are in the sample. Absorbances in the near infrared region of the spectrum can be so complex that they give rise to unique fingerprints of different chemicals.

Citizen Science: Spectrometers built with near infrared technology used to be large, expensive and restricted to universities. That's changing! The handheld spectrometer transmits chemical signatures to a smartphone which checks the pattern against a huge library of compounds in the "cloud" and returns the analysis to you within seconds. When you use it, not only will you be learning more about the chemical world around you but you'll also be helping to build a database of knowledge of the stuff around us. Now that's citizen science!

Beneath the vivid hues of this eye-shaped cloud, named Abell 78, a tale of stellar life and death is unfolding. At the centre of the nebula, a dying star – not unlike our Sun – which shed its outer layers on its way to oblivion has, for a brief period of time, come back to echo its past glory. #xmmnewton

Foams are examples of dispersed media. In general, gas is present in large amount so it will be divided into gas bubbles of many different sizes (the material is polydisperse) separated by liquid regions which may form films, thinner and thinner when the liquid phase is drained out of the system films. When the principal scale is small, i.e. for a very fine foam, this dispersed medium can be considered as a type of colloid

Milky Way and Aurora over Antarctica

It has been one of the better skies of this long night. In parts of Antarctica, not only is it winter, but the Sun can spend weeks below the horizon. At China's Zhongshan Station, people sometimes venture out into the cold to photograph a spectacular night sky. The featured image from one such outing was taken in mid-July, just before the end of this polar night. Pointing up, the wide angle lens captured not only the ground at the bottom, but at the top as well. In the foreground is a colleague also taking pictures. In the distance, a spherical satellite receiver and several windmills are visible. Numerous stars dot the night sky, including Sirius and Canopus. Far in the background, stretching overhead from horizon to horizon, is the central band of our Milky Way Galaxy. Even further in the distance, visible as extended smudges near the top, are the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds, satellite galaxies near our huge Milky Way Galaxy.
