The Inside of a CT Scanner

X-Ray Computerized Tomography (CT) produces cross-sectional images of patients by taking X-ray images from different angles and merging them together using a computer. In order to acquire the imagery from different angles, the scanner is rapidly rotated around the patient. Here, the cowling of a CT scanner has been removed to reveal the collection of hardware that is rotated around the central bore hole where the patient is placed.

The CT scanner is comprised of two primary components: the X-ray source and the X-ray detector. The two are located directly across from one another so that X-rays passing through the patient are captured by the detector. Rather than emit a linear beam of X-rays, the source typically emits a fan-shaped beam so that a larger volume of the patient can be imaged. This requires the use of a linear detector array (component with the 5 cooling fans) that captures the expanding beam of X-rays.

This view was acquired at a distance of approximately 80,000 miles (129,000 kilometers) from Enceladus. Image scale is 2,530 feet (772 meters) per pixel.
This half-lit view of Enceladus bears a passing resemblance to similar views of Earth's own natural satellite, but the similarities end there.

The Sun's Magnetic Field

The Potential Field Source Surface (PFSS) model is used to visualize the dynamic magnetic field of our Sun. It uses a combination of observed measurements of magnetic field strength and direction on the solar surface to understand how solar material moves. The twisting magnetic fields form the enormous coronal loops frequently observed on the surface of the Sun.

The Most Important Google Search Algorithm Updates Of 2015 - infographic
http://www.digitalinformationworld.com/2016/01/gifographic-google-search-algorithm-updates-2015.html

According to +Search Engine Watch, 2015 was a tumultuous year for SEO, due in large part to Google’s actions.

Whenever there’s a significant update to the #Google algorithm, search marketers all across the board go crazy. Everyone first goes into a tizzy to see if their clients have been affected, and then to publish their own hypotheses on the nature of the update and how to ride it unscathed. And thanks to Google’s FUD tactics, major business publications like the BBC, WSJ and Bloomberg have also started taking note.

We at +E2M have been closely monitoring the evolution of Google’s search algorithm and producing a year-end #infographic every year for the past few years. While there are many sites that closely monitor and analyze algo updates, we focus on representing them together in a simple and fun manner.

So here is this year’s animated version – a “gifographic” if you will:

Gallium - Nicknamed the "Terminator Metal" for its liquid metal appearance at room temperature!

Gallium

Nicknamed the "Terminator Metal" for its liquid metal appearance at room temperature, Gallium is a chemical element with symbol Ga and atomic number 31. It is a soft, silvery metal that melts at 30°C and is predominantly used in electronics and semiconductors.

Here gallium is being oxidized by a mixture of sulfuric acid (H2SO4) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). As the metal is heated it forms ornate patterns as the oxidation reaction proceeds across the surface.

I love her infographics. This infographic GIF is a 25-frame stop motion animation made mostly in Photoshop.

The majority of the information, used in that one, comes from the textbook Biological Science, 4th Edition by Scott Freeman.

Comb Jelly Gif

These unusual creatures locomote by beating rows of tiny hairlike structures called cilia. When the cilia are hit with artificial light they break it into wavelength colours, producing hypnotic shimmering rainbow colouration, as seen here in this #gif  via +WIRED and +Monterey Bay Aquarium.

Learn more about these fascinating creatures here: http://www.wired.com/2014/10/absurd-creature-week-comb-jelly-puts-one-hell-laser-show-man/#x
