NASA Captures Footage of South Pole During Aurora, Makes a GIF

"This is an animation of the Aurora Australis (Southern Lights), eight days after a record-setting solar flare sent a shower of charged particles towards Earth. From Earth, this glowing ring would appear as a curtain of light shimmering across the night sky.

Juno Is on Course to Swing into Orbit Around Jupiter on July 4

NASA's Jupiter-bound Juno spacecraft has entered the planet's magnetosphere, where the movement of particles in space is controlled by what's going on inside Jupiter.

When Juno arrives to Jupiter on July 4, it will bring with it a slew of instruments such as infrared imager/spectrometer and vector magnetometer among the half a dozen other scientific tools in its payload.

Juno will avoid Jupiter’s highest radiation regions by approaching over the north, dropping to an altitude below the planet’s radiation belts – which are analogous to Earth’s Van Allen belts, but far more deadly – and then exiting over the south.
To protect sensitive spacecraft electronics, Juno will carry the first radiation shielded electronics vault, a critical feature for enabling sustained exploration in such a heavy radiation environment.

Data from Juno's Waves investigation, presented as audio stream and color animation, indicate the spacecraft's crossing of the bow shock just outside the magnetosphere on June 24 and the transit into the lower density of the Jovian magnetosphere on July 25.

The bow shock is analogous to a sonic boom. The solar wind blows past all the planets at a speed of about a million miles per hour, and where it hits an obstacle, there's all this turbulence.

The Juno spacecraft launched on Aug. 5, 2011, from Cape Canaveral, Florida.

Окаменелое дерево - Opalized
Окаменелое дерево представляет собой псевдоморфозы кварца (опала ) по древесине .
Как поделочный камень окаменелое дерево используется с древности. Реже оно применяется как ювелирное сырье для изготовления брошей, кулонов, серег.
Замещение кварцем может быть полным или частичным; следует внимательно осмотреть каждый образец, чтобы решить, можно ли обрабатывать камень как обычный халцедон, или же он, как текстурированный материал с различающимися по твердости участками нуждается в специальной обработке.
Основным диагностическим признаком является характерная структура дерева.
Прекрасное сырье поступает на мировой рынок из многочисленных источников. Месторождения окаменелого дерева находятся в России, США. Например, красивые оканемелые деревья - с прибрежной равнины Техаса, из Вайоминга, Невады и др. Крупные куски оканемелого дерева встречаются в окрестностях Национального парка оканемелого леса в Аризоне.

Magic Leap teams up with Lucas Films for a Star Wars AR demo – yep there goes all our money http://tnw.me/asE0MdX
Last fall we showed you a demo of Magic Leap's augmented reality technology which can shoot an impressive clip without any special effects. So fast forward

Earth's Plates Change Over Time!

Earth's Plates Change Over Time

⇛ The GIF is showing frame by frame in 1 million year increment model of tectonic movement.

⇚ According to Sabin Zahirovic, a geodynamicist at the University of Sydney in Australia the tectonic plates can change their motion (speed and direction) over geologically short periods of time, about 1 million years.

⇎ Earth is in a constant state of change and it looks different than it was 250 million years ago when there was only one continent, called Pangaea, and one ocean, called Panthalassa.

⇕ At an average rate of 1.53 cm, land masses move apart and toward each other. The heat from radioactive processes within the planet’s interior causes the plates to move, sometimes toward and sometimes away from each other.

Please don't do that unless you have to. It's very dangerous. That guy got lucky. Yeas it does work but huge chance of it blowing up.

Aurora Borealis!
#NorthernLights  
 
Aurora borealis seen from the International Space Station.

The aurora borealis (northern lights) are caused by charged particles from the Sun interacting with the upper atmosphere. These solar particles are accelerated by the Earth's magnetic field towards the geomagnetic poles where they ionize gases in the atmosphere and produce light.
