Well +Bex Lathrope is now a spaghetti western fan. Got her to watch Fist Full of Dollars, For A Few Dollars More and just now The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. She thinks they're ace and has gone off on an Ennio Morricone binge upstairs.
I have a VERY cool girlfriend :-D

Casting Light on Sound to See its Shadow

"When light passes between areas of different air density, it bends. You've probably noticed the way distant pavement seems to shimmer on a hot day, or the way stars appear to twinkle. You're seeing light that has been distorted as it passes through varying air densities, which are in turn created by varying temperatures and pressures.

In the mid-19th century, German physicist August Toepler invented a photography technique called Schlieren Flow Visualization to visually capture these changes in density. The setup is a bit hard to explain in words (watch the video above for a full explanation) but it allows scientists and engineers to see things that are normally invisible: the rising heat from a candle, the turbulence around an airplane wing, the plume of a sneeze.

It can also be used to see sound. Sound, after all, is just another change in air density — a traveling compression wave. A speaker pushes on the surrounding air, creating a wave that travels outward until it encounters the ear drum."

Please don't share this picture. Doing so will upset some evil loan sharks.

Story
Tagline
Here sharing bad jokes, cool bits of news I spot often to do with science, technology and space. Sometimes a bit of politics thrown in too.
Introduction
Live in Brigg, from Sutton in Ashfield originally, escaped that doss hole for the final time in early 2010. Keen biker, grow my own food and work with electronics for a specialist security firm.
I believe in honesty, fairness and equality and for that reason I hate racism, xenophobia and homophobia etc even though as a straight white male they don't really impact upon me at all.

I have a rare talent for metaphorically putting my foot squarely in my mouth on occasion, but I'm still a decent sort.

Considering it was just a draughty room (the windows didn't shut) with 4 ancient metal framed bunks in it I'd say it was rather over priced, not to mention cheeky calling it a "hotel". To get a shower the hot tap in the bath had to be run for at least 10 minutes before anything like warm came through. Breakfast consists of either cornflakes or toast done in a machine that either barely touches or completely incinerates the bread and don't think you can sneak down late and sit there eating past 9:30 because you'll be chased out by a woman with a vacuum cleaner. To be honest you'd be better off in a tent somewhere!
