Black Holes In Photos

postedPosted in Photography, Science on January 19th, 2012 by glennm

It would be absolutely fantastic if scientists could actually take a picture of the event horizon of a black hole. Since as we now know, even Hawking was wrong in hypothesizing that nothing escapes…

Taking a picture of a black hole, an object so gravitationally bound that not even photons of light can escape, sounds like an oxymoron, but astronomers this week will attempt to do just that. What they’re hoping to glimpse is something called the “event horizon” — the swirl of matter and energy that are visible around the rim of the black hole just before it falls into the abyss.

At 7:45am EST, this Saturday morning’s upcoming lunar eclipse may be a little late for me. So California friends, please watch and report!!

“For people in the western United States, the eclipse is deepest just before local dawn,” NASA scientists said in a statement. “Face west to see the red moon sinking into the horizonas the sun rises behind your back. It’s a rare way to begin your day.”

The Biggest Oil Spills in History

postedPosted in Photography, Stuff on May 3rd, 2010 by glennm

Louisiana oil spill

If current estimates for the Deepwater Horizon oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico are correct, the massive spill could eventually dwarf that of Exxon Valdez spill of 1989 — previously the largest in U.S. history — by as much as three times. At a rate of 5,000 barrels a day, for an estimated 90 days, well over 20 million gallons of crude could be pumped out onto the Louisiana coastline.

Scary Indeed

Just the thought of being in the icy waters of the Hudson River in the winter is enough to make one’s skin crawl. US Airways Jet Crashes Into Hudson River off New York City [ABC News]. But looking at photos and video of today’s aircraft floating in the river is scary, very scary indeed.
