Play of Color: Imagine a gem so iridescently beautiful that a phrase, play of color , is coined just to describe it. How does an ordinary sludge of sand and water, boringly described as hydrated silicon dioxide (SiO2. nH2O), express every color in the spectrum of light?

Precious opal is formed when a solution of silica seeps through cracks in a rock very slowly : at a rate of one centimetre thickness every five million years. Under pressure, spheres of silica 150-300 nanometers wide, deposit in crystalline arrays. This regular packing, spaced close enough to the wavelength of light, has the effect of a diffraction grating, and the scattered light can be described by Bragg's Law. Nearly all the earth's supply of precious opal comes from Australia, formed in the Cretaceous period, more than a hundred million years ago.

Eric the Pliosaur: Now imagine a massive thick necked beast that once cruised through the Late Jurassic oceans, with a jaw four times stronger than T. rex and 10 times more powerful than any living creature. 150 million years later, our pliosaur has been "opalized" to an iridescent sheen, his fragments discovered by a lucky miner in Australia's Coober Pedy and sold for $250,000 USD to a wealthy businessman who subsequently lost his fortune.  Christened Eric the Pliosaur by a mischievous archaeologist who was asked to put the bones together, after Monty Python's Eric the Half a Bee, the fossil turned out to have a fish inside its belly, fittingly named Wanda. After a public campaign, Eric was eventually purchased for display by the Australian Museum.  What a thrilling journey for Eric. 

► Musical accompaniment: Monty Python - Eric the Half-a-Bee (1972)  

Half a bee, philosophically, must ipso facto half not be .
But half the bee has got to be, vis-à-vis its entity - d'you see?
But can a bee be said to be or not to be an entire bee
when half the bee is not a bee, due to some ancient injury?

Hybrid Heart

Via +ScienceSunday

Stem Cells Grow Beating Heart

● Heart Beats Again
"A newly beating heart is part-mouse, part-human. For the first time, a mouse heart has been made to pulse again by stripping it of its own cells and rebuilding it with human ones (see video above)."

"To create the hybrid heart, Lei Yang at the University of Pittsburgh and colleagues took the heart from a mouse and, in a process that lasted 10 hours, removed all its cells. The remaining protein scaffold was then repopulated with human heart precursor cells – stem cells that had differentiated into the three types of cell required for a heart. After a few weeks, the organ started to beat again. "Our engineered hearts contain about 70 per cent human heart precursor cells, which provide enough mechanical force for contraction," says Yang."

● Video:
Mouse heart uses human cells to beat again

Researchers Use Video Game Tech to Steer Roaches on Autopilot

North Carolina State University researchers are using video game technology to remotely control cockroaches on autopilot, with a computer steering the cockroach through a controlled environment. The researchers are using the technology to track how roaches respond to the remote control, with the goal of developing ways that roaches on autopilot can be used to map dynamic environments – such as collapsed buildings.

We now have almost 600,000 asteroids in the catalog (http://goo.gl/dsyPV) which includes not only their location, but also the size and shape of their orbits.  If you want to track which asteroids might hit Earth, this is the catalog you need.  If you want to mine asteroids for rare Earth metals, this catalog will come in handy.

As you can see, this is a decades old and on-going effort.  It draws upon amateurs and professionals, ground-based and space-based observations.  This is what modern astronomy looks like.  It’s only byworking to... more »

Fluorescent Coral

Via +ScienceSunday 

A fluorescing  maze coral under high magnification. 

When we see corals, even closely, most of the details escape our attention. Besides, the other element that can easily be missed is fluorescence.

Corals have lots of fluorescent pigments for various reasons, including the necessity to "shield" the symbiotic organisms from excess of light (or just deliver the light of a more useful spectrum). Fluorescence gives them wonderful colors that are absent on photographs taken with regular light flashes but remain when you use light as close to natural as possible.

Waiting for the Revolution

An interview with the Nobel Prize-winning physicist David J. Gross.

“New discoveries tend to be intuitive, just on the borderline of believability. Later, they become obvious.”

“In science, it is essential never to be totally certain.”

“I do not view the present situation as a crisis, but as the kind of acceptable scientific confusion that discovery eventually transcends.”

“We were all looking for the next overthrow, and we were willing to sacrifice existing theories at the drop of a hat.”

Bach to the blues, our emotions match music to colors

Whether we’re listening to Bach or the blues, our brains are wired to make music-color connections depending on how the melodies make us feel, according to new research from the University of California, Berkeley. For instance, Mozart’s jaunty Flute Concerto No. 1 in G major is more apt to be associated with bright yellow and orange, whereas his dour Requiem in D minor is more likely to be linked to dark, bluish gray.
