Pale Blue Dot

from ORDER Productions PLUS 2 years ago NOT YET RATED

A visual response to Carl Sagan's famed 'Pale Blue Dot' monologue, where he muses on our planet's appearance in a photograph taken by the Voyager 1 space probe. The most distant photograph ever taken of Earth.

This was a personal project, designed and created in After Effects with extensive sound work created to sit along side the music from 'Cosmos' and the spoken word from Sagan.
Thanks for taking the time to view and all the amazing feebdack!

After Koalas, Australian animals seem to come in only three varieties: those who want to eat you, inject venom in you, or hop

An image taken by a Japanese satellite launch on 7 October 2014 has snapped the true colour of planet Earth (shown). The image from the Himawari-8 weather satellite shows Earth's natural colour.

I've seen so many pictures of earth from orbit and they all have one thing in common:  The awe and wonder it fills me with.

- More thoughts coming, for all those who live south of Earth's equator...
- The Southern Cross is a tad over-rated: It’s the smallest of all 88 — a fist at arm’s length covers it entirely.
- There’s no middle star in the rectangular Southern Cross to anchor the transept. More accurate to call it "Southern Rhombus"
- Champagne lovers might like to know that the second brightest star in the Southern Cross, Beta Crux, is also called “Mimosa"
- In 1769, Captain Cook voyaged to the South Pacific to observe a rare passing of Venus directly between Earth and the Sun
- Capt. Cook mapped coastlines on his southern scientific voyage. Within two decades England colonized NewZealand & Australia.
- Visitors wax poetic about Southern Hemisphere skies. Why? Light pollution in the North leaves most of us starved for darkness
- Many constellations in the Southern Skies are Geeky, having been formally named during the Industrial Revolution.
 Geeky constellation names all in the Southern Skies: Antlia, The Air Pump, Telescopium, The Telescope. Pyxis, The Compass.
 More Geeky southern constellation: Microscopium, The Microscope; Fornax, The Lab Furnace; Horologium, The Pendulum Clock.
- Three more Geeky southern constellations:  Octans, The Octant; Sextans,The Sextant; Reticulum, The Eyepiece Crosshairs.

Lecture note on 2015-07-02T14:15:00

I will briefly review the state-of-the-art in ground-based astronomy - both on the telescope side and the instrument side. Interesting parallels can be drawn in cost, construction and operations with the particle physics facilities. I will then present some recent results in the two hottest topics in astronomy, driving the requests for more advanced facilities: exoplanets and the hunt for life beyond the solar system (calling for Extremely Large Telescope); and cosmology and the understanding of dark energy (calling for large survey telescopes). This will lead to a description of the latest telescope project developments on the ground: the on-going construction of the Large Synoptic Telescope on a quest to better understand dark energy, and the start of the construction of three Extremely Large Telescopes by European and US-led international consortia, hoping to find life on planets around nearby stars.

The cool video from above is here;

Yes the #Apollo11 crew also signed customs forms. We brought back moon rocks & moon dust samples. Moon disease TBD.

Just a typical round trip flight. :-)
At least customs didn't confiscate the moon rocks!

Maybe I just have an active imagination, but I’m still a bit spooked by the wall outlets in Australia:

Geek tip: outlets should be installed with the "mouth" (ground) connector facing up -- the face upsidedown.  This is a safety in that if a bare wire were to fall against a half way plugged in plug, it would fall against the ground (harmless) rather than short out the power and neutral wires.

Google Plus has a cap of 5000 people in Circles total and the above Date and time is when we crossed that threshold. As a result of this policy I cannot Circle more people at this time with out un-Circling some early adopters. My current feelings are that would be unfair to them so please know I appreciate your interest but unfortunately I won't be Circling you until the above policy changes. 
Thank-you for your interest and understanding.

To parents of young children ;
Your discretion is advised as episodes of strong language, Agnosticism, Free Thinking and Science may occur here with no further warning. You may want to use these an a teaching opportunity to discuss social conventions and human reproduction with your off-spring.
