Cosmic Microwave Map Swirls Indicate Inflation

Did the universe undergo an early epoch of extremely rapid expansion? Such an inflationary epoch has been postulated to explain several puzzling cosmic attributes such as why our universe looks similar in opposite directions. Yesterday, results were released showing an expected signal of unexpected strength, bolstering a prediction of inflation that specific patterns of polarization should exist in cosmic microwave background radiation -- light emitted 13.8 billion years ago as the universe first became transparent. Called B-mode polarizations, these early swirling patterns can be directly attributed to squeeze and stretch effects that gravitational radiation has on photon-emitting electrons. The surprising results were discovered in data from the Background Imaging of Cosmic Extragalactic Polarization 2 (BICEP2) microwave observatory near the South Pole. BICEP2 is the building-mounted dish pictured above on the left. Note how the black polarization vectors appear to swirl around the colored temperature peaks on the inset microwave sky map. Although statistically compelling, the conclusions will likely remain controversial while confirmation attempts are made with independent observations.

The sun unleashed a M-9.3 flare, just short of an X class (the largest) from an active region right at the sun's edge (March 12-13, 2014). The bright flash is the tell-tale sign of a flare. The brightness of the flare causes very bright saturation and blooming above and below the flare region on the CCD detector and caused extended diffraction patterns to spread out across the SDO imager. Images were taken in extreme ultraviolet light, showing ionized iron at 10 million degrees.

Equinox on a Spinning Earth

When does the line between day and night become vertical? Tomorrow. Tomorrow is an equinox on planet Earth, a time of year when day and night are most nearly equal. At an equinox, the Earth's terminator -- the dividing line between day and night -- becomes vertical and connects the north and south poles. The above time-lapse video demonstrates this by displaying an entire year on planet Earth in twelve seconds. From geosynchronous orbit, the Meteosat satellite recorded these infrared images of the Earth every day at the same local time. The video started at the September 2010 equinox with the terminator line being vertical. As the Earth revolved around the Sun, the terminator was seen to tilt in a way that provides less daily sunlight to the northern hemisphere, causing winter in the north. As the year progressed, the March 2011 equinox arrived halfway through the video, followed by the terminator tilting the other way, causing winter in the southern hemisphere -- and summer in the north. The captured year ends again with the September equinox, concluding another of billions of trips the Earth has taken -- and will take -- around the Sun.

A Walk in the Sahara Desert

One of my favorite moments here in Morocco is waking up early in the desert.  I stayed overnight deep in the desert at a Berber camp where many other desert travelers rested for the night.  There was food and music and dancing and it was all wonderfully surreal.  Everyone woke up early to walk out and see the sunrise, and there was a middle eastern couple there. This girl was dressed in perfect blue (and nice and curvy!), so I asked her man if I could take photos.  He said sure, so I just asked her to walk through the dunes while I followed her into the sun...

I'm off directly to Japan next for a big Google event and really looking forward to that too!
