Dallas McMillan7,412Circle from the land downunder - Australia's top 200 PlussersWho are Australia's most followed people on Google Plus?I've put together this circle of Australia's top 200 profiles (by follower numbers - not engagement - some aren't particularly active) on Google Plus.It's pretty interesting to see the types of profiles which make the cut.Here is my quick overview:By far the most dominant characteristic of the top 200 are photographers - professional and amateur.The other notable individuals are a couple of cricketers in the top 10, a smattering of celebrity chefs, musicians, writers, artists, models and other celebrities.There are also fair numbers of Google employees, IT workers, social media and marketing types as well as a decent number of scientists and mathematicians. The only politician I noticed was Malcolm Turnbull - the Prime Minister and Leader of the opposition are conspicuous by their absence.I got the list from +CircleCount http://www.circlecount.com/au/profileslist/ and I've made a few tweaks - removing a couple of profiles that were inactive or had moved away from Australia. There were a number of others which probably don't belong as they now work in the USA or elsewhere.  #australia   #australianphotographers   #circleshare  I've notified members of the circle - let me know if you don't want to be listed.2013-08-04 14:24:522009213

Sir John Hardy17,427There have been a few circles shared about lately. None, however, is as good as this one. Each person in this circle has been crash tested in a laboratory, simmered in a social incubator and boiled in the crucible of interaction. All have come up with a pH reading of 4 or higher.2012-03-11 14:36:3337538720
Rose T1,969As shared by +Holland Rhodes This is a circle of 99 people that live in Australia or did at one time. These are the top 99 I have circled as chosen by Google's algorithms.

Ben Adelaide1,650Hi all, I was just wanting to share my Adelaide circle (which is sadly lacking... not so easy to find fellow Adelaideans). I may have even thrown in some near Adelaide (ie South Australia somewhere) or even a few honorary Adelaideans in here.... or they might have slipped in by accident. And of course, if I've missed you (or worse, uncircled you) I appologise in advance!Please, if you know of any great people posting from Adelaide, let me know. It's good to get a sense of what's going on in your home town, and hear our local voices.2012-01-28 00:07:5537804

I've removed inactive people, those who post very little and those who just advertise their own products.These are active (some very!) posters, who mostly share interesting posts. Feel free to re-share this circle if you want to. If you feel that there's someone missing, let me know.2011-12-29 12:59:41237301

Kathryn Crosby19When I returned to G+ for about the third time and tried to actually give it a chance, I found the most frustrating issue was that there are so few active Australians that there are often long dead times while the rest of the world is asleep. Like me, many of the Australians in this circle posted a couple of things in July/August/September, but because no one else seemed to be posting anything they moved away. None the less, having got near enough to 500 Aussies, I figured I should share the circle and add it to the database. Perhaps with a heap of Australian circling going on it will wake things up a bit. I have tried to cull out the wannabe Australians and the completely inactive, but there may have been a few missed out. If I have missed you please feel free to post in the comments and I'll start work on a second Australians circle.2011-11-02 08:55:134993058

John Hardy didn't vote for Abbott9,807Sorry for the repost, I inadvertently shared this to a limited circle but had really meant for this to be a public post. If you saw this already please ignore.So here anyway is my attempt to put this Google+ Circle concept to some use. For those Aussies and Kiwis who might be interested in following other people who are either born, worked or currently resident Down Under, here is my "Antipodean" circle. They're a weird mob. Apologies in advance if I left you out. The circle is partial and a work in progress. When I realise that there's a connection I usually add a person to the circle after the fact. Sometimes it's not at all obvious judging from some people's profiles so I may also have added some who will be surprised to find themselves in here.If I did get it wrong, please let me know. If you aren't in the circle and would like to declare your Aussie / Kiwi affiliation in the comments thread please feel free.That includes any American liberals who might be contemplating immigration.John Hardy shared a circle with you.2011-10-26 09:57:1236904

This is excellent quality. We need more Babylon 5 fans who have the skills to record an event of this quality for all those who cant attend. This means alot to us fans!  Yes there are some mic issues but this is so much better than those who try to record on their mobile phones.

Baker will forever be my favourite Doctor!

The Doctor: I’m a Time Lord.
Sarah Jane: Oh, I know you’re a Time Lord.
The Doctor: You don’t understand the implications… I’m not a human being, I walk in eternity…
Sarah Jane: What’s that supposed to mean?
The Doctor: It means I’ve lived for something like 750 years.
Sarah Jane: All right, so you’re middle aged!
The Doctor: Yes! About time I found something to do than run around after the Brigadier.

Meet your new robot overlords
DARPA revealed upgrades to its Atlas robot on January 20, 2015. The robot was redesigned for DARPA by Boston Dynamics (bought by Google Dec 2013), with the goal of improving power efficiency to better support battery operation. Approximately 75 percent of the robot was rebuilt; only the lower legs and feet were carried over from the original design. The upgraded robot will be used by up to seven teams competing in the DARPA Robotics Challenge Finals, which will take place June 5-6, 2015, at Fairplex in Pomona, Calif. Admission to the event is free and open to the public.

Saturn's aurora, a ghostly ultraviolet glow that illuminates the gas giant's upper atmosphere near the poles, has a heartbeat that pulses in tandem with the planet's radio emissions, scientists have discovered.

The pulsing auroras on Saturn occur about once every 11 Earth hours or so ? the length of one day on the ringed planet, researchers found.

"This is an important discovery for two reasons," said study leader Jonathan Nichols of the University of Leicester in England. "First, it provides a long-suspected but hitherto missing link between the radio and auroral emissions, and second, it adds a critical tool in diagnosing the cause of Saturn's irregular heartbeat."

Saturn's aurora, a ghostly ultraviolet glow that illuminates the gas giant's upper atmosphere near the poles, has a heartbeat that pulses in tandem with the planet's radio emissions, scientists have discovered.

The pulsing auroras on Saturn occur about once every 11 Earth hours or so ? the length of one day on the ringed planet, researchers found.

"This is an important discovery for two reasons," said study leader Jonathan Nichols of the University of Leicester in England. "First, it provides a long-suspected but hitherto missing link between the radio and auroral emissions, and second, it adds a critical tool in diagnosing the cause of Saturn's irregular heartbeat."


Saturn's heartbeat

Like all magnetized planets, Saturn emits radio waves into space from its polar regions.

These emissions pulse at intervals of about 11 hours. During the twin Voyager missions, both launched in 1977, the timing of the pulses were thought to represent the planet's rotational period. 

But, observations over the years noted that the pulsing of the radio emissions has varied. Since the rotation of a planet cannot easily change speed, the source of Saturn's fluctuating radio period mystified planetary scientists.

Similarly, the length of a day on Saturn has generated debate, since traditional clocks are unreliable timekeepers in determining the rotational period of a planet with no solid surface for reference. 

In a new study, researchers show that, not only do radio emissions pulse, the planet's auroras also beat in tandem.

Auroras on Saturn

Nichols and his team used images of Saturn's auroras from the Hubble Space Telescope that were obtained between 2005 and 2009. The findings of the study will be published in the Aug. 6 edition of the journal Geophysical Research Letters. 

On Earth, auroras are caused when charged particles in space stream down the planet's magnetic field lines toward the poles. The interaction of these particles with atoms of nitrogen and oxygen in the Earth's atmosphere cause them to glow.

Auroras on Earth can occur when the planet's magnetic field is bombarded by particles emitted by the sun. On Saturn, auroras can occur when moons such as Enceladus or Io expel particulate material into the near-planet space.

It was long suspected that Saturn's radio waves were emitted by these charged particles as they traveled toward the poles, but radio-like pulsing had not been observed in Saturn's aurora. This puzzled astronomers, since the two phenomena were seemingly related.

In this recent study, however, Nichols and his team of researchers used the clock of Saturn's radio pulsing to organize the planet's aurora data.

They also stacked the results from all of Hubble's Saturn aurora images (obtained from 2005 to 2009) on top of each other. By doing this, the aurora pulsing finally revealed itself.

"This confirms that the auroras and the radio emissions are indeed physically associated, as suspected," Nichols said. "This link is important, since it implies that the pulsing of the radio emissions is being imparted by the processes driving Saturn's aurora, which in turn can be studied by the NASA/ESA spacecraft Cassini, presently in orbit around Saturn. It thus takes us a significant step toward solving the mystery of the variable radio period."___

Saturn’s main rings, seen here on their ''lit'' face, appear much darker than normal. That’s because they tend to scatter light back toward its source — in this case, the Sun.

Usually, when taking images of the rings in geometries like this, exposures times are increased to make the rings more visible. Here, the requirement to not over-expose Saturn's lit crescent reveals just how dark the rings actually become. Scientists are interested in images in this sunward-facing ("high phase") geometry because the way that the rings scatter sunlight can tell us much about the ring particles' physical make-up.

This view looks toward the sunlit side of the rings from about 6 degrees above the ringplane. The image was taken in visible light with the Cassini spacecraft wide-angle camera on Jan. 12, 2014.

The view was acquired at a distance of approximately 1.4 million miles (2.3 million kilometers) from Saturn and at a Sun-Saturn-spacecraft, or phase, angle of 152 degrees. Image scale is 86 miles (138 kilometers) per pixel.
