If you went outside at exactly the same time every day and took a picture that included the Sun, how would the Sun's position change? With great planning and effort, such a series of images can be taken. The figure-8 path the Sun follows over the course of a year is called an analemma. At the Winter Solstice in Earth's northern hemisphere, the Sun appears at the bottom of the analemma. Analemmas created from different latitudes appear at least slightly different, as well as analemmas created at a different time each day. With even greater planning and effort, the series can include a total eclipse of the Sun as one of the images. Pictured is such a total solar eclipse analemma or Tutulemma - a term coined by the photographers based on the Turkish word for eclipse. The featured composite image sequence was recorded from Turkey starting in 2005. The base image for the sequence is from the total phase of a solar eclipse as viewed from Side, Turkey on 2006 March 29. Venus was also visible during totality, toward the lower right. If you want to create your own USA-based tutulemma ending at next August's total solar eclipse, now would be good time to start.

What happens when you train a neural network to watch Blade Runner, then tell it to make its own version? Well, asides from the DMCA takedown notices, this happens...

H/T to +John Buckmaster for pointing me at this wonderfully PKD-ian story.
The story of how an AI watching a movie about AIs led to the coolest, weirdest DMCA takedown ever.

A bacterium on a diatom on an amphipod

Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) is a powerful imaging technique that produces images of a sample by scanning it with a beam of electrons instead of light. The electrons interact with the atoms in the sample to produce signals containing information about the sample's surface topology and composition. Because electrons are much smaller than the wavelength of visible light, SEM can achieve resolutions better than 1 nanometer (100,000x thinner than human hair).

Here, an SEM is used to zoom in on a prepared sample by several orders of magnitude. The microscope initially reveals an amphipod, a type of shell-less crustacean (1mm). As it zooms in on the head of the amphipod, a round, silica-shelled algae called a diatom is revealed (100µm). As it zooms in even further, a rod-shaped bacterium can be seen resting on the diatom (500nm).
