Hubble Space Telescope4,870,989A new, improved portrait of Hubble’s deepest-ever view of the universe, called the eXtreme Deep Field, or XDF, looks far away and back in time to reveal faint galaxies at one ten-billionth the brightness of what the human eye can see.  This is the culmination of 10 years of observing a patch of sky that contains thousands of far-flung galaxies. The full-color XDF image shows previously unseen galaxies as they looked in the early universe, billions of years ago.Astronomers continue studying this area of sky with Hubble. Extensive ongoing observing programs, led by Harry Teplitz and Richard Ellis at the California Institute of Technology, will allow astronomers to study the deep-field galaxies with Hubble to even greater depths in ultraviolet and infrared light prior to the launch of JWST. These new results will provide even more extraordinary views of this region of the sky and will be shared with the public in the coming months.                              Want to know more? You can participate in an online webinar and hear three key astronomers of the XDF observing team describe how they assembled the landmark observation. They will illustrate and explain what Hubble’s powerful new view tells us about the evolving universe. Viewers can send in questions for our panel of experts to discuss. The webinar will be broadcast at 1 p.m. Thursday Sept 27. Join us here for this Google Event, or watch and leave questions at the HubbleSite YouTube Channel. (http://www.youtube.com/hubblesitechannel). You can also ask your questions in advance here in comments, and we'll pass them on to our panel.The panelists will be:Garth Illingworth, astronomer at the University of California, Santa Cruz.He is the principal investigator of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field 2009 (HUDF09) Project. Pascal Oesch, astronomer at the University of California, Santa Cruz.He is a co-investigator with the HUDF09 Project. Dan Magee, programmer/data analyst at the University of California, Santa Cruz. He is a co-investigator with the HUDF09 Project.There's some more info here: http://hudf09.ucolick.org/xdf.html #xdf  Meet the Hubble eXtreme Deep Field Observing Team2012-09-27 19:00:00434

This is an extremely significant result. It means solar cells could become as efficient as 60% where previously the theoretical limit was 32% conversion of light to electricity.

What are your top three consumer/electronics sites in your country?

If you were go online to order a TV, or a washing machine, or a stereo, or a phone, or a tablet - what sites would you use in your home country?

Do  you use any international sites? For example there are some Euro specific suppliers out there who specifically aim to serve the EU,  not their home nation. Do you use any?

As an example,  http://www.elgiganten.dk/ is one of my goto shops in Denmark. BestBuy in one I know in the US and Dixon's in the UK.

I'd be grateful if you could let me know in the comments below - the more the better.

A remake of a video from last year. My question is this: what is the orientation of our plane of the ecliptic to the solar system's path of motion? Is this actually so?

An interesting graphic nonetheless.

An absolutely fascinating animation that suggests a more accurate view of our solar system and its movement through space and time. We are bits of fluff caught in a vortex around the sun.  This really "blew my mind up real good" as they say. Don't they say that? Seriously, watch this!

Deriving great joy from the seemingly trivial.
See that grotty old bag? Stained and innocuous, you'd probably not give it a second glance if you saw it on the side of the road. Contained within is a treasure I'd long thought long lost. 

That bag contains decades of memory, of will, of hope, of defeat, of glory, and of ignominy.  In 1978 I got my first set of platonic solids - and over the years, like a dragon's hoard of glittering pretties, the pile grew.  Contained within this bag are all the dice I'd collected over the years.

These dice played in Paul Hume's weekly games back in the 80's. These dice witnessed epic  Battletech engagements with hundreds of mechs on the field. These dice fought army sized Squad Leader games where we watched the front develop one squad at a time and a single turn took a day. These dice saw me outrun a horse, andout ... more »

And I thought they were gone forever. 

Well, in talking to my younger son this morning, I was delighted to find that not only were they not gone forever, but they were in his care and keeping. He's even playing D&D :D

Silly how such a little thing can make one so happy.
Nice one, Bryan!___

Philotography
With photography, the automatic process is mechanical and chemical. The shutter opens, and light streams in through the lens and is focussed on a chemical film. The process itself is holistic, with no clearly defined parts or steps. "For this reason, many in the 19th century could regard light or nature itself as the painter."

In keeping with my last post...
A young monk arrives at the monastery. He is assigned to helping the other monks in copying the old canons and laws of the church by hand.

He notices, however, that all of the monks are copying from copies, not from the original manuscript. So, the new monk goes to the head abbot to question this, pointing out that if someone made even a small error in the first copy, it would never be picked up! In fact, that error would be continued in all of the subsequent copies.

The head monk, says, "We have been copying from the copies for centuries, but you make a good point, my son."

He goes down into the dark caves underneath the monastery where the original manuscripts are held as archives in a locked vault that hasn't been opened for hundreds of years. Hours go by and nobody sees the old abbot.

So, the young monk gets worried and goes down to look for him. He sees him banging his head against the wall and wailing, "We missed the "R" ! , We missed the "R" !"

His forehead is all bloody and bruised and he is crying uncontrollably. The young monk asks the old abbot, "What's wrong, father?"

With a choking voice, the old abbot replies, "The word was, CELEBRATE!!!"

A good article about how the content (never mind interpretation) of the Bible has changed significantly over time.

❝ [Let he who is without sin cast the first stone] a powerful story, known even by those with just a passing knowledge of the Bible ... Unfortunately, John didn’t write it. Scribes made it up sometime in the Middle Ages. It does not appear in any of the three other Gospels or in any of the early Greek versions of John. Even if the Gospel of John is an infallible telling of the history of Jesus’s ministry, the event simply never happened. Moreover, according to Ehrman, the writing style for that story is different from the rest of John, and the section includes phrases that do not appear anywhere else in the Bible.

It also mentions a study that showed that evangelical beliefs actually align better with the Pharisees than Jesus. And their knowledge of the bible is only a bit more detailed than most atheists. Which is the danger (in my mind) of letting some self-appointed expert mediate your spiritual relationship with the world. :/___

I reckon this applies.
-----------------
If we never tried to seem a little better than we are, how could we improve or 'train ourselves from the outside inward'? And the same impulse to show the world a better or idealized aspect of ourselves finds an organized expression in the various professions and classes, each of which has to some extent a cant or pose, which its members assume unconsciously, for the most part, but which has the effect of a conspiracy to work upon the credulity of the rest of the world.

There is a cant not only of theology and of philanthropy, but also of law, medicine, teaching, even of science - perhaps especially of science just now since the more a particular kind of merit is recognised, the more likely it is to be assumed by the unworthy.

HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM +NovoPulp!
Read An Early Extract of the NovoPulp Anthology - Volume 2

It has been a wonderful year for NovoPulp and we have only our contributors and fans to thank for this. 

In case you missed it on Christmas day I want to share an early extract from the afterword, to show you how far we have come this year together: 

"Since the first anthology came out we have received a lot of interest in NovoPulp; not just online but also here in Denmark. 

"In June 2014 I attended Fantasticon, a SF convention in Copenhagen. A Danish magazine called Himmelskibet (the sky ship) had reviewed NovoPulp a few weeks before Fantasticon opened. Everyone I spoke to at the convention seemed especially interested in what we were doing.

"In June 2014 I attended Fantasticon, a SF convention in Copenhagen. A Danish magazine called Himmelskibet (the sky ship) had reviewed NovoPulp a few weeks before Fantasticon opened. Everyone I spoke to at the convention seemed especially interested in what we were doing.

"The whole experience was inspiring and I got to do my first public reading there... People told me how they found the work thought provoking, which is the ultimate aim of speculative fiction. So I was happy. By the end of the day I had sold out of the few copies I had brought with me to test the market. 

"The Danish Royal Library also contacted us and I sent them a copy of the anthology... As we speak you can borrow the first NovoPulp anthology throughout Denmark.

"Once you release a book to the world the hard part is seeing what the world reflects back. It has been encouraging to have experienced, on the whole, a positive response from those who have been following us."

"Given everything that has happened I can’t wait to see where NovoPulp will be in another year."

The type of consciousness the photograph involves is indeed truly unprecedented, since it establishes not a consciousness of the being-there of the thing (which any copy could provoke) but an awareness of its having- been -there.

What we have is a new space-time category: spatial immediacy and temporal anteriority, the photograph being an illogical conjunction between the here-now and the there-then.

An Act for establishing religious Freedom.
Whereas, Almighty God hath created the mind free;
That all attempts to influence it by temporal punishments or burthens, or by civil incapacitations tend only to beget habits of hypocrisy and meanness, and therefore are a departure from the plan of the holy author of our religion, who being Lord, both of body and mind yet chose not to propagate it by coercions on either, as was in his Almighty power to do,

That the impious presumption of legislators and rulers, civil as well as ecclesiastical, who, being themselves but fallible and uninspired men have assumed dominion over the faith of others, setting up their own opinions and modes of thinking as the only true and infallible, and as such endeavouring to impose them on others, hath established and maintained false religions over the greatest part of the world and through all time;... more »

That the impious presumption of legislators and rulers, civil as well as ecclesiastical, who, being themselves but fallible and uninspired men have assumed dominion over the faith of others, setting up their own opinions and modes of thinking as the only true and infallible, and as such endeavouring to impose them on others, hath established and maintained false religions over the greatest part of the world and through all time;

That to compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions, which he disbelieves is sinful and tyrannical;

That even the forcing him to support this or that teacher of his own religious persuasion is depriving him of the comfortable liberty of giving his contributions to the particular pastor, whose morals he would make his pattern, and whose powers he feels most persuasive to righteousness, and is withdrawing from the Ministry those temporary rewards, which, proceeding from an approbation of their personal conduct are an additional incitement to earnest and unremitting labours for the instruction of mankind;

That our civil rights have no dependence on our religious opinions any more than our opinions in physics or geometry,

That therefore the proscribing any citizen as unworthy the public confidence, by laying upon him an incapacity of being called to offices of trust and emolument, unless he profess or renounce this or that religious opinion, is depriving him injuriously of those privileges and advantages, to which, in common with his fellow citizens, he has a natural right,

That it tends only to corrupt the principles of that very Religion it is meant to encourage, by bribing with a monopoly of worldly honours and emoluments those who will externally profess and conform to it;

That though indeed, these are criminal who do not withstand such temptation, yet neither are those innocent who lay the bait in their way;

That to suffer the civil magistrate to intrude his powers into the field of opinion and to restrain the profession or propagation of principles on supposition of their ill tendency is a dangerous fallacy which at once destroys all religious liberty because he being of course judge of that tendency will make his opinions the rule of judgment and approve or condemn the sentiments of others only as they shall square with or differ from his own;

That it is time enough for the rightful purposes of civil government, for its officers to interfere when principles break out into overt acts against peace and good order;

And finally, that Truth is great, and will prevail if left to herself, that she is the proper and sufficient antagonist to error, and has nothing to fear from the conflict, unless by human interposition disarmed of her natural weapons free argument and debate, errors ceasing to be dangerous when it is permitted freely to contradict them:

Be it enacted by General Assembly that no man shall be compelled to frequent or support any religious worship, place, or ministry whatsoever, nor shall be enforced, restrained, molested, or burthened in his body or goods, nor shall otherwise suffer on account of his religious opinions or belief, but that all men shall be free to profess, and by argument to maintain, their opinions in matters of Religion, and that the same shall in no wise diminish, enlarge or affect their civil capacities. And though we well know that this Assembly elected by the people for the ordinary purposes of Legislation only, have no power to restrain the acts of succeeding Assemblies constituted with powers equal to our own, and that therefore to declare this act irrevocable would be of no effect in law; yet we are free to declare, and do declare that the rights hereby asserted, are of the natural rights of mankind, and that if any act shall be hereafter passed to repeal the present or to narrow its operation, such act will be an infringement of natural right.
---
The Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom was drafted in 1777 (though it was not first introduced into the Virginia General Assembly until 1779) by Thomas Jefferson in the city of Fredericksburg, Virginia.

On January 16, 1786, the Assembly enacted the statute into the state's law. The statute disestablished the Church of England in Virginia and guaranteed freedom of religion to people of all religious faiths, including Catholics and Jews as well as members of all Protestant denominations.

The statute was a notable precursor of the Establishment Clause and Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.

Well how cool is this? When I was a boy, I had a friend whose father worked for Bell labs. Every time I visited he had a new gadget he and his father had built. The one that I remember was a little box with lights and switches that played the "You have a wolf, a sheep,a cabbage and a boat that can carry you and one other item. Get all three on the other bank without losing the sheep to the wolf or the cabbage to the sheep" game. I can only imagine what they would have created with this.

Oh, it is apparently still being sold, so if you have any little STEMers out there, look into it :D

Doctor Who - Season 8
Nope, I just don't GaF.
We kept up with the tradition we started when Doctor Who once again graced our screen way back in 2005: We watch the entire season in one go over the Christmas holiday and cap it off with the Christmas special. Well, we were delayed a bit this year and only just started watching Capaldi's Doctor tonight.  

I knew pretty much from the start of the first episode this year that I really wasn't engaged by the Doctor anymore, and really hadn't been from Matt Smith onward. The accompanying graphic pretty much nails the Arc of the Doctor Who reboot. It's the rare show that does not conform to its arc of glory and shame.

Ah well, it was a good run.

Invest in graphite.

Wonder material could harvest energy from thin air ... "old claims for new battery technology have been around since the invention of the lead-acid battery more than 150 years ago.

But researchers at Manchester University in the UK say their latest discovery involving the new wonder material graphene could be the most revolutionary advance in battery technology yet.

According to a study published in the journal Nature, graphene membranes could be used to sieve hydrogen gas from the atmosphere -- a development that could pave the way for electric generators powered by air. ..."

Breakfast in America  by Supertramp  has been in my playlist since it was released in 1979. I was 13 years old and this resonated so strongly with me it was ... profound.

This, along with Styx's Pieces of Eight, was the soundtrack to my first reading of The Lord of the Rings and certain songs still call specific parts of the story to mind. 

I've owned it on LP, 8-Track, Cassette (bootleg and retail), cd, and other various digital forms. It has remained, through all these years, one of my most favourite albums.

I know I drove the reference librarians mad when I was a kid. When other kids were out playing their childish games, I was at the county library, adventuring through the adult (as compared to children's, you perv) stacks.  I no longer live near a library, but my wide ranging interest in, well, everything remains. Plus, I have the interwebs :D

Christmas Song
Jethro Tull
Once in Royal David's City
stood a lowly cattle shed,
where a mother held her baby.
You'd do well to remember
the things He later said.

When you're stuffing yourselves
at the Christmas parties,
you'll just  laugh when I tell you to
take a running jump.
You're missing the point
I'm sure does not need making;
that Christmas spirit is
not what you drink.

So how can you laugh
when your own mother's hungry
and how can you smile
when the reasons for
smiling are wrong?

And if I've just messed up
your thoughtless pleasures,
remember, if you wish,
this is just a
Christmas song.

Hey, Santa... pass us that bottle, will you?

Quite liked this.  Time to hunt up some -Bo Kasper's Okerster. Thanks, +Tomas Nilsson :D

As it is pissing with rain outside today (and it's gonna REALLY storm later tonight) I think this song is an nice reprieve. Bo Kaspers Orkester is one of my favorite Swedish bands. Sadly they've not done a lot of songs in English, so I'll just have to share this one as an "introduction".

But feel free to listen to their other songs (in Swedish), because the music is great!

Science!
also +Charles Strebor because pretty!

This isn’t an impressionist painting, it’s our universe in one of its earliest moments.

And it's teaching astronomers some surprising things about dark matter. (via NOVA Next)___Science!

Ice Found on Mercury, the Closest Planet to the Sun
Thu, 23 Oct 2014
Astronomers have confirmed that ice exists on one of the least likely places in the solar system—Mercury.

The planet is among the solar system’s hottest—only Venus has higher average temperatures—thanks to the sun’s searing proximity, which raises temperatures to as high as 800˚ F. But hidden in the frigid shadows—where temperatures can sink as low as -280˚ F—are frozen patches that are the likely remains of icy comets which have blasted the rocky terrain over the last 100 million years.

Scientists have long suspected that Mercury is home to solid H2O, but recent photos taken by the MESSENGER probe confirm it. Here’s Michael Lemonick, reporting for Time:

These are the first optical images, and nobody is entirely sure how the ice got there. One idea is that it wasreleased from wat... more »

Ice Found on Mercury, the Closest Planet to the Sun

The planet is among the solar system’s hottest—only Venus has higher average temperatures—thanks to the sun’s searing proximity, which raises temperatures to as high as 800˚ F. But hidden in the frigid shadows—where temperatures can sink as low as -280˚ F—are frozen patches that are the likely remains of icy comets which have blasted the rocky terrain over the last 100 million years.

Scientists have long suspected that Mercury is home to solid H2O, but recent photos taken by the MESSENGER probe confirm it. Here’s Michael Lemonick, reporting for Time:

These are the first optical images, and nobody is entirely sure how the ice got there. One idea is that it was released from water-bearing rock in Mercury’s crust. But the leading theory suggests it arrived instead in the form of impacts from icy comets, which may well be the same way Earth got its oceans. “It’s a fair amount of ice,” Chabot said, “about equivalent to the water in Lake Ontario, so if it was one comet, it was a pretty sizable one.” More likely, she said, it would have been a series of smaller comets, falling over billions of years.

Mercury’s extreme temperature fluctuations are thanks to its extremely thin atmosphere. The planet’s small mass means it has a hard time holding onto gas particles, and the sun’s intense rays do their best to blast away what little that does cling to the rocky world. If the planet had a denser atmosphere, it would more closely resemble Venus, where the thick sky keeps average temperatures above 860˚ F.

Mercury’s thin atmosphere gives scientists another unique opportunity. Next spring, MESSENGER will be able to fly just 12 miles above the surface without burning up. During that pass, it will take extraordinarily high-resolution images of the planet, giving scientists a unique window into a world of extremes.

Orion Flight Test Profile

Orion is NASA’s new spacecraft built to carry humans, designed to allow us to journey to destinations never before visited by humans, including an asteroid and Mars. On this uncrewed test flight, Exploration Flight Test-1, Orion will test systems critical to crew safety as it travels farther into space than any spacecraft built for humans has traveled in more than 40 years .

During the 4.5-hour flight, Orion will orbitEarth twice, covering more than 60,000 miles (96,600 kilometers) and reaching an altitude of 3,600 miles (5,800 kilometers) on the second orbit. (The International Space Station orbits Earth at an altitude of approximately 260 miles, or 420 kilometers.) That altitude will allow the spacecraft to return through the atmosphere at a speed of 20,000 mph (32,000 kph), which will generate temperatures near 4,000 degrees Fahrenheit (2,200d... more »

That altitude will allow the spacecraft to return through the atmosphere at a speed of 20,000 mph (32,000 kph), which will generate temperatures near 4,000 degrees Fahrenheit (2,200 degrees Celsius) on Orion’s heat shield. Those temperatures – about 80 percent as hot as Orion would experience returning from lunar orbit – will provide the most challenging test currently possible.

The flight test will also validate systems such as Orion’s parachutes, avionics and attitude control, and demonstrate major separation events such as the launch abort system jettison and the service module fairing separation. All of these systems must perform flawlessly to guarantee safe, successful missions in the future. Although they have been tested extensively on the ground, the space environment cannot be replicated completely on Earth, and Exploration Flight Test-1 will provide critical data that will enable engineers to improve Orion’s design and reduce risk for the astronauts it will carry as NASA continues to move forward on its
human journey to Mars. ___

What if you could turn atmospheric carbon dioxide into nanoporous graphene and use it to make supercapacitors faster & cheaper than current technology, at little cost to the environment - and perhaps even a benefit? Turns out you can, according to this just-of-the-presses release from the university where I work. It's not likely to solve global climate change, but it's still a pretty exciting development in the field of energy storage: http://oregonstate.edu/ua/ncs/archives/2014/dec/atmospheric-carbon-dioxide-used-energy-storage-products
