Space Station Sensor to Capture 'Striking' Lightning Data - Our researchers developed the Lightning Imaging Sensor (LIS) aboard the TRMM satellite, which detects and locates lightning over the tropical region of the globe. The team that created this hardware in the mid-1990s built a spare, which is scheduled to launch to the International Space Station in February 2016 in order to take advantage of the orbiting laboratory’s high inclination. LIS measures the amount, rate and radiant energy of global lightning, providing storm-scale resolution, millisecond timing, and high, uniform-detection efficiency -- and it does this without land-ocean bias.

One of the crew members aboard the International Space Station photographed this night view of storm clouds over Southern California. Early morning lightning can be seen as a white blotch just to the right of center. The yellow colored area, beneath the grey clouds, which almost shines because of night lights, is part of the highly populated area of Los Angeles and San Diego.

Very nice "Wave on a string" applet, with the most functionalities I've seen http://phet.colorado.edu/en/simulation/wave-on-a-string#Signal #Geophysics

Today in 1974, NASA's Mariner 10 mission took this first close-up photo of Venus.

Made using an ultraviolet filter in its imaging system, the photo has been color-enhanced to bring out Venus's cloudy atmosphere as the human eye would see it. Venus is perpetually blanketed by a thick veil of clouds high in carbon dioxide and its surface temperature approaches 900 degrees Fahrenheit.

Launched on Nov. 3, 1973 atop an Atlas-Centaur rocket, Mariner 10 flew by Venus in 1974.

Introduction
Matteo Niccoli

I am a Professional Geophysicist with the Association of Professional Engineers, Geologist, and Geophysicists of Alberta. I have a Honors degree in Geology from the University of Rome, Italy, and a Masters degree in Geophysics from the University of Calgary, Alberta, with  7 years’ experience in the hydrocarbon industry and 2 years’ experience in the mining industry. I worked as a Geophysicist for Anadarko Canada and Canadian Natural Resources, in Calgary, Alberta. In June 2012 I moved to Stavanger, Norway, where I will be working with D.O.N.G Energy AS. I also have my own company, MyCarta, which offers research and occasionally consulting in Digital Cartography and Visualization of Geophysical data.
