9 November is reserved to Hedy Lamarr
She is remembered for her beauty on the silver screen, but the Hollywood actor spent her nights inventing a weapons communication system that was a precursor to wireless technologies including Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

Lamarr also, captured international attention as the first female actor to simulate an orgasm in a non-pornographic film. 
Lamarr quickly got bored of Hollywood, though, and decided to try her hand at helping the Allied war effort instead. She had learned about military technology from her first husband, arms manufacturer Friedrich Mandle, and decided to use that knowledge for the greater good
.
She teamed up with her friend George Antheil, a composer, to figure out how to help stop German submarines from jamming Allied radio signals using the same mechanisms found in pianos. In 1942, she developed the “secret communication system,” a frequency-hopping mechanism that laid the foundation for the development of Bluetooth and wi-fi technology. She died at the age of 85 in 2000.

"Her idea of a good evening was a quiet dinner party with some intelligent friends where they could discuss ideas."
Indeed she falls in the category "Brains before beauty". ;)

The Incredible Variety of Extraterrestrial Worlds
Exoplanets (or extrasolar planets) are planets beyond our own solar system: they orbit a star other than the Sun. Nearly 2000 exoplanets have been discovered since 1988, mostly with NASA’s Kepler space telescope. It has intensified interest in the search for extraterrestrial life.

This new poster shows over 500 extrasolar planets and demonstrates how much they vary. The visualization, created by graphic artist and writer Martin Vargic from Slovakia, is based on the estimated radius and temperature of the planets, however other factors, such as density, age or stellar metallicity were also taken into consideration.

All the various known classes of exoplanets are shown on the graphic, such as super-Earths, hot Jupiters, hot Neptunes, water worlds, gas dwarfs or superdense diamond planets. 
 Zoom in and explore!

Feliz Semana Google Plus
“Aquel que tiene un porqué para vivir se puede enfrentar a todos los cómos.”
By Friedrich Nietzsche

Hay situaciones que nos colocan en posiciones difíciles y solo los valientes que encuentran el verdadero propósito de la vida, los que superaran cada obstáculo que se les atraviese.
