I get it. Most people up there are but semi-prepeared tourists who literally go and buy a packge for making an attempt to conquest the #Everest. But a truly prepared person knows what triggers avalanches. It is like being in the beach and experiencing a seriously big earthquake: you know that a tsunami may come, hard . It isn't like you can do much about it, anyway. But you can attest,by the sheer amount of "fucks" given (listen to it) that he was but a tourist, among tourists, indeed. There wasn't a real climber in sight. Sad...

The Illusion of Reality

One of the most impressive aspects of astronomy is the stunning visuals. These amazing color images inspire our love of the cosmos, and are a perennial hit on social media. They also aren’t real, at least in the sense of being an accurate representation of how celestial objects actually appear to the human eye. They are more art than science, providing an illusion of reality.

The reason for this is rooted in the way astronomers observe the heavens. At a basic level, astronomers image the sky in much the same way you might take a selfie with your phone. Both are captured with a digital camera, and both are manipulated to produce the desired result. But in astronomy we’re primarily interested in accurate data, which means creating an image often comes second.

The Illusion of Reality

One of the most impressive aspects of astronomy is the stunning visuals. These amazing color images inspire our love of the cosmos, and are a perennial hit on social media. They also aren’t real, at least in the sense of being an accurate representation of how celestial objects actually appear to the human eye. They are more art than science, providing an illusion of reality.

The reason for this is rooted in the way astronomers observe the heavens. At a basic level, astronomers image the sky in much the same way you might take a selfie with your phone. Both are captured with a digital camera, and both are manipulated to produce the desired result. But in astronomy we’re primarily interested in accurate data, which means creating an image often comes second.

If you take a photograph with your phone, for example, it’s typically stored as a jpg file. In this format, images are compressed to reduce their size, and the way in which they are compressed is “lossy.” This means part of the image is approximated, which loses some of the information in the image. For selfies the approximation isn’t noticeable, so this isn’t typically a big deal. For scientific imagery, however, you don’t want approximations; you want to preserve 100% of the available information you worked so hard to collect. So astronomers typically use a different image format known as the Flexible Image Transport System (FITS).

The FITS format is uncompressed, and stores data as a text (ASCII) file. This means you can easily analyze the data or convert it to other file formats. The files can also contain metadata, or information about how and where the image was obtained, which is particularly useful when you need to combine data from multiple sources.

One disadvantage of the FITS format is that raw images typically need to be manipulated to show anything. For example, a file might give the amount of light gathered for each pixel on a linear scale. When displayed on a screen the raw image often looks black because our eyes perceive brightness on a logarithmic scale. To actually see the image of a faint galaxy, above, we have to severely adjust the brightness and contrast.

Another difference between your typical selfie and an astronomical image is the way in which color images are produced. Digital cameras detect light through an array of sensors that measure the amount of light reaching them (typically CMOS or CCD detectors). These sensors are sensitive to light within a particular range of wavelengths. Most commercial digital cameras also implement an array of filters so that some pixels will only capture red light, and others only green or blue. The three “color” images are then combined to produce the color photograph. This is similar to the way our eyes perceive light, with cones in our retina sensitive to these three primary colors.

While this is an easy way to produce a color image, its big downside is that each type of sensor is only capturing a fraction of the light. It also means that the amount of light gathered at each wavelength is determined by the ratio of red, green and blue sensors, and can’t be changed. Since astronomers want to gather as much light as possible, their cameras are sensitive to a wide range of wavelengths. Different filters can then be placed in front of the sensors if we want to focus on a particular color range. As a result, raw photographs in astronomy are almost always black and white.

To create a color image, black and white images taken through different filters are then colorized and combined to produce a color image. With the right care it’s possible to create an image which closely approximates a “true color” image. But often the resulting image doesn’t accurately represent the real colors of the night, and often this is done intentionally. It’s sometimes referred to as the National Geographic effect.

In the late 1970s, the Voyager missions made their flybys of Jupiter. It was the first time truly detailed images were gathered of the planet. Magazines such as National Geographic had full page spreads of these images, which were absolutely stunning. Then, as now, the raw data were black and white images captured through different color filters, which were combined to create color photographs. But rather than using true-color images, the photos had boosted colors and depth. It made for great imagery, but wasn’t a true representation of how Jupiter looks.

There are some who would argue that these enhanced images misrepresent reality in a way that runs counter to scientific accuracy. Shouldn’t we be honest and strive for accurate images rather than color-hyped photographs that are more art than science?

While there’s a case to be made for accuracy, in some ways a color-hyped image is more accurate to what we perceive, even if it isn’t accurate to reality. By changing the contrast on these images, we can visually perceive details that would be washed out if we insisted on “true color” all the time. If you asked people the color of the Moon, for example, most would say it is white or pale gray. They would say this based upon their own observation of the Moon. But in reality, the Moon is a much darker shade that borders on black, more the color of gunpowder. A similar effect occurs with Mars, which we see in the sky as pale red, but is more the color of butterscotch or cocoa powder. The reason for this discrepancy is that our perception of colors depends on other factors such as the brightness of an object, or the colors of objects next to it.

Then there are the vast range of wavelengths that our eyes can’t even observe. We’ve developed telescopes that can see radio, infrared, ultraviolet, x-rays and gamma rays. Accuracy would ask that we remain blind to these images. But instead we produce false-color images, where colors are assigned to various wavelengths. This allows us to perceive structures that wouldn’t be apparent otherwise, structures that in many ways describe what’s physically present better than what our eyes would see alone.

Compare what the human eye sees of the Ring Nebula through an eyepiece, at left, with what an advanced telescope and camera (the Isaac Newton Telescope’s Wide Field Camera) — with advanced processing, multiwavelength views, spectroscopic data and the contrast turned way up — sees at right.

Pictures tell a story, and sometimes the power of these images lies not in being true to life, but rather in extending our view of the universe beyond the limits of the human eye.___

Our beloved Schnauzer dog, the Dr. Salt, the day he finally came home. Today is his third brthday! Just after we purchased him, we came to realize he was very ill (cough) and he went from the pet store straight into the hospital. But after a very long weekend (we never left him alone) he was just fine, and while afraid of grass (maybe it was the first time he was in a garden) he was very happy, frolicking around and enjoying the sun :-)

But a truly prepared person knows what triggers avalanches. It is like being in the beach and experiencing a seriously big earthquake: you know that a tsunami may come, hard . It isn't like you can do much about it, anyway. But you can attest,by the sheer amount of "fucks" given (listen to it) that he was but a tourist, among tourists, indeed. There wasn't a real climber in sight. Sad...

Why 's +Lisa Eadicicco's column on Google+ failed.

The latest "Google+ is dead" article comes from an acquaintance of mine named +Lisa Eadicicco (she's been on my show a few times, and also on +TWiT): 

http://www.businessinsider.com.au/what-happened-to-google-plus-2015-4

The piece exists to explain why Google+ failed. In the article, Lisa makes 3 errors fatal to her argument, which add up to a grossly misleading article. 

Here are those errors: 

1. Lisa accepts without question the false idea that spinning photos out of Google+ means Google+ is failing. 

When Google properties like Google Play and YouTube were integrated into Google+, the tech press didn't give those events as evidence that Google+ was winning. 

Spinning out photos is a good thing, and doesn't affect Google+ at all. 

2. Lisa says something that's untrue: "Google+ never really caught on the same way social networks like Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn did."

In fact, Google+ is far bigger and has far more engagement than Twitter or Linkedin. 

The reason everyone believes the opposite is because of the sheer number of articles like this one -- regurgitating and repeating falsehoods without questioning the obvious flaws in reasoning that anyone can see. 

Let's talk about the Twitter comparison. 

Google+ engagement looks at one minor number: public posts. Private posts (the default mode) are NOT counted. Comments, which are replies, are NOT counted. 

Twitter engagement numbers count public posts, too (unlike on G+, the vast majority of Twitter posts are public). And replies to tweets -- the equivalent of a comment on Google+ -- are counted, too. 

A post with 20 replies on Google+ is counted as one post. 

A post with 20 replies on Twitter is counted as 21 posts. 

Twitter gets more than 20 times more "credit" in this example for engagement than Google+ does for the EXACT same conversation. 

That's why Twitter numbers are similar to Google+ numbers when in Face Google+ engagement is probably many times higher than Twitter. 


3. She equates employee grumbling with admission of failure.

Yes, I believe Google+ failed in the sense that it didn't make a dent in Facebook, which has got to have been a major goal. But Google+ did succeed in becoming the number-two social network in history in terms of engagement -- far more successful than the media's darling, Twitter. 


It's great that Lisa got sources on record giving us a tiny peek at what people might be saying inside Google. But the column goes off the rails by failing to question obviously false information that form the foundation of the article.
