Joaquin Ferguson0This is a curated circle. It's a circle of people I started following in January, and who have consistently posted something at least once a week during all of February, March, and so far in April, about three months.

Graeme McRae23,459Graeme's January Circle . . . This is a curated circle. It's a circle of people I started following in January, and who have consistently posted something at least once a week during all of February, March, and so far in April, about three months. If you want an interesting stream, you should add this circle. If you're interested in how I curated this circle, and why I think it makes for a really great stream, read on. . .How did these people get in the circle?. . . They must have posted something interesting, at least once, because I don't follow people unless they post something interesting. By now, you're probably not surprised by the number of people on G+ whose pages are full of repeated posts, videos without comments, "what's up" and other uninteresting things. I don't follow those people.How did they stay in the circle since January?. . . After I add someone, I keep them in the circle of people I added around the same time. Then, several times a week, I go through all my circles and delete people who haven't posted (something visible to me) in the last 7 days. So the people who are left in the circle are consistent posters. That says something important about them, because consistency is a proxy for quality.Consistency is a proxy for quality. Why is that?. . . I'll admit it: I don't have the science to back up that wild statement, but I'll tell you why I believe it to be true. People who post crap don't get a lot of followers, and the few followers they have don't bother to engage. After a while, the crappy-posting people start to think G+ is a ghost town, and they lose interest. On the other hand, the people who share (or re-share) interesting things get followers and engagement, slowly at first, but ever increasing, and this outpouring of love is what keeps them going. That's what I think anyway, and I'm sticking to it.People who share interesting things get lots of followers. . . This is another half-baked theory of mine, but hear me out. You might think this makes sense: Google+ offers suggestions of people to follow, especially to new users. Google+'s only source of names to suggest are other G+ers like yourself. The G+ers who have the most engagement are the ones Google+ knows will be good to follow, so these people get put out as suggestions more often, and some percentage of those suggestions are taken up. So the more engagement you have, the more Google+ will sugggest you as a person to follow, and so the more followers you'll get. Completing the theory: the more interesting the stuff you share (or reshare), the more engagement you'll get, and hence the more followers you'll get.How can I get in your circle?. . . Don't bother trying to "get into" this circle. This circle isn't for you to get into. Think of it the other way around. This circle is for you to add, so you can follow a bunch of interesting and consistent people. The stream from this one circle will be chock-full of fascinating content for you to reshare. People will start to notice your reshares, and they will engage with you, and then Google+ will "notice" (it's a computer, but let's anthropomorphise, shall we?) you and suggest you to others, who will then follow you.No, really. How can I get in your circle?. . . First, unfollow me, then wait, oh, about a week. Spend that week posting a shitload of interesting things. Then follow me. Since you're so interesting, Google+ will notify me that you followed me (G+ doesn't notify me about every follower). I'll look at your posts, find one interesting, and follow you. Then, remember to post something every few days. Finally, after two or three months, I might post the circle for the mo2014-04-11 23:47:335009716

Pam Dabney7,395Suggested Guidelines Good Day, happy new month to you our Friends, Followers and Circle Members,Sharing circles is how you increase your visibility and meet new interesting people. You may obtain new traffic, when you add yourself to circles and share public.  +Queenpld for +Pam Dabney   is the Circle Page for people who are interested in broadening their horizons with others who want to communicate, express, share, support, plus, and grow circles together #mutualsharing   #mutualshare   . We have an encouraged mutual share Community page. Please share us public and follow the page to be added to new circles with others who share your like interest. +Queenpld for +Pam Dabney   is designed so you could increase your following when you use the share feature, button, or arrow your name for it. Everyone should share the circles they are included in for your own following growth. We have pages in the Community, on the page, and the hash tag page. When you join us we offer three ways for your numbers to grow. Everyone has to start somewhere... When you are not comfortable with circles here is exactly what to do....1. Name the Circle, add yourself, and save the circle.2. Give the circle creator credit #Queenpld 3. Give credit to the person who shared the circle with you #Queenpld  it may not be the same person.4. Share the circle public (circle count credits), with all your circles, and specific people who would benefit from the people in the circle.  5. Say thank you in the stream. (comments)6.  If you don’t wish to be in shared circles, join us at +Circle Construct #circleconstruct  - the page has circles marked do not share. You do not want to get blocked. 7. When you want to remove yourself from the circles @ #Queenpld  you can remove yourself from the page. LEARN MORE FROM GOOGLE 1. Your Profile: google.com/+/learnmore/profile2.

SciTech #ScienceSunday Digest, 42/14.
Modular RNA & DNA particles, big data automation, creating spacetimes, simulating black holes, synthesising ionic chains, printing crystal textures & solid forming, deep learning, drone traffic control.

1. Modular Multifunctional RNA Nanoparticles.
A new modular RNA nanoparticle technology starts with the computational design and subsequent self-assembly of hexagonal RNA rings onto which a range of different molecular functional groups can self-attach http://www.nanowerk.com/spotlight/spotid=37709.php. This approach is similar to DNA origami technology and functional groups that can be attached to these rings include siRNAs, aptamers, proteins, dyes, and RNA-DNA hybrids, which allows for a very diverse range of biosensing and therapeutic applications. Proof-of-concept involved (i) creating RNA rings with six aptamers that selectively bind a green dye and significantly increased light emission, and (ii) testing different RNA rings with multiple functional groups against HIV infected cells - targeting multiple parts of HIV at once is important given how rapidly HIV evolves. This is a really nice platform technology and the group plans to significantly expand the library of parts that can be used with the technology. 

2. Multifunctional DNA Nanoparticles.
Closely related to the above we also saw DNA origami technology again being used in another approach to self-assemble multifunctional DNA cages 150nm wide that are coated with folic acid binding-molecules and contain an anticancer drug and a polymer-coated DNA-chewing enzyme http://news.ncsu.edu/2014/10/gu-cocoon-2014/. Cancer cells over-express folic acid on their surfaces and so the DNA cages are preferentially taken up by cancer cells, the internal environment of which causes the polymer to dissolve, releasing the enzyme to chew up the DNA cage, and releasing the anticancer drug to kill that cancer cell. The group hope to continue with preclinical testing. Quite aside from this promising application being developed it is great to see functional self-assembled DNA technology being used and investigated on such a regular and wide-spread basis. 

3. Further Big Data Automation with Data-Smashing Technique.
A new algorithmic data analysis technique called “Data-Smashing” should enable further automation of data analysis and accelerated knowledge discovery http://mediarelations.cornell.edu/2014/10/09/data-smashing-could-unshackle-automated-discovery/. Typically the machine-based analysis of huge data sets requires a human expert to point the algorithm towards relevant features for comparison. This new method dispenses with such human guidance and automatically estimates similarities and differences in huge data sets to assist with subsequent human use, and might also allow for deriving knowledge and relationships that human experts might not know to look for. Successful proof-of-concepts involved (i) electroencephalograph pattern data, (ii) anomalous cardiac activity readings, and (iii) astronomical object classification. 

4. Creating Curved Spacetimes.
Optical lattices, or traps, form from carefully controlled interference between two laser beams, and can comprise ordered arrays of minima or “pockets” that hold onto individual atoms of interest in ultra-cold, quantum-mechanical conditions. Recent studies in theoretical physics suggest that atoms embedded in such a lattice are mathematically equivalent to a quantum field in curved spacetime, which can be measured and observed directly - something previously difficult or impossible https://medium.com/the-physics-arxiv-blog/how-to-create-curved-spacetime-in-the-lab-c03107623468. Keeping the lattice regular is equivalent to a flat spacetime; changing the lattice to vary in space in different ways is equivalent to curved spacetimes. This suggests convenient means to simulate the expansion / contraction of spacetime to test various models and including relativistic effects and gravity waves. Fascinating stuff and I wonder what other applications optical lattices may give rise to?

5. New Materials to Simulate Black Holes.
On the topic of simulating curved spacetimes we also had an interesting result with the experimental reduction to practice of a prior theoretical model indicating that quantum fluids - in this case an optically confined and accelerated Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) moving faster than the speed of sound - produce Hawking radiation from event horizons in the form of phonons and their negative-energy partners http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn26366-desktop-sonic-black-hole-emits-hawking-radiation.html. An interesting result and potentially useful for direct and indirect probes of black holes as well as other gravity and spacetime experiments. 

6. First Synthesis of Two-Element Atomic Chains.
An ionic crystalline chain of repeating cesium and iodine ions has been synthesised for the first time within the confined one-dimensional space inside a carbon nanotube http://phys.org/news/2014-10-two-element-atomic-chain-microscopic-space.html. This is fairly fundamental research into new types of one-dimensional materials and will entail much more research into physical characterisation and developing additional applications for both the materials and also the ability to confine matter within these structures. 

7. 3D Printing Controlled Crystallographic Textures.
A new 3D printing technology using electron beam melting of metal powders allows bulk metallic parts to be fabricated with controlled microstructures and crystallographic textures throughout the entire volume http://www.ornl.gov/ornl/news/news-releases/2014/ornl-research-reveals-unique-capabilities-of-3-d-printing-. Such technology allows material and parts designers to specify location-specific crystal-structure-orientations in a part. This provides far greater control over part properties including strength, weight, function, conductivity, flexibility, etc. 

8. 3D Printing via Laser Solid Forming.
On the topic of 3D printing a new 3D printing technology called laser solid forming (LSF) has demonstrated the ability to print parts with properties that reach those of wrought or conventionally manufactured parts http://online.liebertpub.com/doi/full/10.1089/3dp.2014.0016. LSF works by using focused laser pulses and synchronously-fed metal powders to map out, deposit, and melt precise amounts of metal powders to form arbitrary 3D structures. While best results are currently achieved with titanium and titanium alloys, other metals and materials also produce excellent results, even if not quite the same as conventional bulk parts. This represents a fairly significant milestone for 3D printing technologies - rapidly creating parts with the same strength, brittleness, etc of conventional parts. 

9. Deep Learning Machines Continue to Make Strides.
Earlier this year DeepMind, an artificial intelligence company bought by Google and focused on developing deep learning algorithms, demonstrated that its systems were able to learn to beat humans at basic computer games like Pong but not at slightly-more-complex games like Space Invaders. Now DeepMind’s systems are further developed and have learned to master Space Invaders and games of similar complexity http://singularityhub.com/2014/10/16/watch-deep-learning-ai-get-superhuman-at-space-invaders-after-all-night-gaming-session/. This approach to building AI systems focuses on developing the general ability to learn in real-time, from experience, and better adapt to environmental situations; it promises sophisticated web services, search, and robotics capabilities. 

10. Air-Traffic Control for Drones.
A project involving NASA and company Airware is building an air traffic control system to manage the projected increase in commercial drones filling our airspace in the coming years including 7,500 drones operating commercially by 2018 http://www.technologyreview.com/news/531811/air-traffic-control-for-drones/. Many of these commercial operations will be driven by industrial needs such as mining and especially agriculture like this one http://spectrum.ieee.org/automaton/robotics/aerial-robots/yamaha-demos-agricultural-robocopter. We seem to be at a fairly pivotal point for deciding where regulatory oversight of drones will go, and centralised systems like this one naturally give rise to proponents advocating for alternative distributed solutions.

Entry for the 2014 Gallery of Fluid Motion of the APS-DFD conference

The energy deposition in a liquid drop on a nanosecond time scale by impact of a laser pulse can induce various reactions, such as vaporization or plasma generation. The response of the drop can be extremely violent: The drop gets strongly deformed and propelled forward at several m/s, and subsequently breaks up or even explodes. These effects are used in a controlled manner during the generation of extreme ultraviolet (EUV) light in nanolithography machines for the fabrication of leading-edge semiconductor microchips. Detailed understanding of the fundamentals of this process is of key importance in order to advance the latest lithography machines.

In the video we are shown the impact of a focused laser pulse onto a millimeter-size drop in a regime comparable to what can be found in lithography machines. The drop’s life was recorded for various impact conditions by high-speed imaging at 20 000 frames per second (FPS). The high reproducibility of the dynamics allowed them to use stroboscopic illumination with nanosecond exposure times leading to an effective frame rate of 10 million FPS. They present a scaling law and compare experimental results to numerical simulations, in order to show how the drop is propelled and deformed.

NASA preparing for comet encounter this weekend

Comet Siding Spring will be making its closest pass to Mars this Sunday, bringing with it a wealth of information about the formation of our solar system 4.6 billion years ago.

Siding Spring - named after the Australian observatory which first identified it - comes from the Oort Cloud, material left over from the formation of the solar system. It’s thought that the comet has come straight from the Oort cloud, making it the first time it has passed this close to the sun, giving scientists a unique opportunity to observe it and gather data as it passes only 87,000 miles (139,500km) from the surface of Mars. That’s less than half the distance between the Earth and the Moon, and close enough for NASA to decide to ‘hide’ satellites currently orbiting Mars to avoid the trail of debris.

NASA preparing for comet encounter this weekend

Comet Siding Spring will be making its closest pass to Mars this Sunday, bringing with it a wealth of information about the formation of our solar system 4.6 billion years ago.

Siding Spring - named after the Australian observatory which first identified it - comes from the Oort Cloud, material left over from the formation of the solar system. It’s thought that the comet has come straight from the Oort cloud, making it the first time it has passed this close to the sun, giving scientists a unique opportunity to observe it and gather data as it passes only 87,000 miles (139,500km) from the surface of Mars. That’s less than half the distance between the Earth and the Moon, and close enough for NASA to decide to ‘hide’ satellites currently orbiting Mars to avoid the trail of debris. Their orbits have been altered just enough to ensure they will all be passing behind Mars at the time the worst of the comet dust is passing, while allowing them to still observe as much of the comet encounter as possible.

NASA has been hard at work repurposing a wide range of spacecraft for this comet encounter, with Mars satellites like the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) - which normally faces down towards Mars - being turned skywards to capture the event. Instruments on Martian soil are also being used to gather data, with cameras on the Opportunity and Curiosity rovers being adjusted to observe the comet.

Watch NASA's narrated video with the complete explanation:

Images of the comet will be posted in the days and weeks to come, at mars.nasa.gov/comets/sidingspring.

How many arrangements?

When you're shuffling a deck of cards, you're doing your best to ensure the deck is as mixed as possible. But it turns out you might not have to try so hard. In this wonderful TedEd animation (linked below), Yannay Khaikin outlines the staggering number of ways a deck of 52 cards can be arranged.

And you aks yourself just how staggering is it? It turns out there are

80,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (67 zeros)

ways to arrange a deck of 52 cards. And as Khaikin explains, "Any time you pick up a well shuffled deck, you are almost certainly holding an arrangement of cards that has never before existed and might not exist again." Mind boggling!

Francisco Goya - Crazy like a Genius

Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes born in Spain in 1746 was a romantic painter regarded both as the last of the Old Masters and the first of the moderns. 

Goya's evolution as a painter is one of the most remarkable in all of history. His early paintings such as the ones he produced as court painter to the Spanish Crown or the many magnificent portraits he made on commission for Spanish nobility are, compared to the work he put out later in life, different as night and day. 

At age 14, Goya started his studies under the painter José Luzán. Around 1765, in his late twenties he designed some 42 patterns, many of which were used to decorate the bare stone walls of El Escorial and the Palacio Real del Pardo, the residences of the Spanish monarchs near Madrid.

Francisco Goya - Crazy like a Genius

Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes born in Spain in 1746 was a romantic painter regarded both as the last of the Old Masters and the first of the moderns. 

Goya's evolution as a painter is one of the most remarkable in all of history. His early paintings such as the ones he produced as court painter to the Spanish Crown or the many magnificent portraits he made on commission for Spanish nobility are, compared to the work he put out later in life, different as night and day. 

At age 14, Goya started his studies under the painter José Luzán. Around 1765, in his late twenties he designed some 42 patterns, many of which were used to decorate the bare stone walls of El Escorial and the Palacio Real del Pardo, the residences of the Spanish monarchs near Madrid. This brought his artistic talents to the attention of the Spanish monarchs who later would give him access to the royal court.

During the 1780s, his circle of patrons included many of the kingdom's most notable people, including the Duke and Duchess of Osuna and even the King, Charles III, himself. It was the king who in 1786 gave him a salaried position as court painter. After the death of Charles III in 1788 and revolution in France in 1789, during the reign of Charles IV, Goya reached his peak of popularity with royalty.

His luck was not made to last. At some time between late 1792 and early 1793, a serious illness left Goya deaf, and he became withdrawn and introspective. Worse, French forces invaded Spain in 1808, leading to the Peninsular War of 1808–1814 which he documented in a series of 82 prints, known collectively as the Desastres de la Guerra, a masterpiece of studied ambiguity.

The horrors of war, the death of his wife, and the loss of his hearing made him shy away from the world. He isolated himself from others, locking himself in his home, and as he grew ever more pessimistic, so did his art grow darker and darker. 

It was there, in his own home, that the then 75 year old Goya, alone and in mental and physical despair, created frightening and obscure paintings of insanity, madness, and fantasy. Most notably a series of 14 with intense, haunting themes, reflective of the artist's fear of insanity and his outlook on humanity, known today as the Black Paintings. Several of these, including Saturn Devouring His Son, were painted directly onto the walls of his dining and sitting rooms.

Goya did not intend for the paintings to be exhibited, did not write of them, and likely never spoke of them.

Through his works he was both a commentator on and chronicler of his era. The subversive imaginative element in his art, as well as his bold handling of paint, provided a model for the work of artists of later generations, notably Manet, Picasso and Francis Bacon.

Social Octopus Species Shatters Beliefs About Ocean Dwellers

"Panamanian biologist Aradio Rodaniche first reported the Pacific striped octopus in 1991 off the coast of Nicaragua, noting its strange behavior—living in groups of possibly up to 40, laying multiple egg clutches, and mating face-to-face and sucker-to-sucker. Most other octopus species, for instance, come together only to mate.”

India became the first Asian nation to reach Mars when its orbiter entered the planet’s orbit this past Wednesday - and this is the picture that was seen around the world to mark this historic event.

The picture was widely shared on Twitter where Egyptian journalist and women’s rights activist Mona El-Tahawy tweeted: “Love this pic so much. When was the last time u saw women scientists celebrate space mission?”

In most mission room photos of historic space events or in films about space, women are rarely seen, making this photo both compelling and unique. Of course, ISRO, like many technical agencies, has far to go in terms of achieving gender balance in their workforce. As Rhitu Chatterjee of PRI’s The World observed in an op-ed, only 10 percent of ISRO’s engineers are female.

This fact, however, Chatterjee writes, is “why this new photograph of ISRO’s women scientists is invaluable. It shatters stereotypes about space research and Indian women. It forces society to acknowledge and appreciate the accomplishments of female scientists. And for girls and young women seeing the picture, I hope it will broaden their horizons, giving them more options for what they can pursue and achieve.”

MAVEN: First images from Mars, taken with the IUVS instrument

NASA’s Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) spacecraft has obtained its first observations of the extended upper atmosphere surrounding Mars.

The Imaging Ultraviolet Spectrograph (IUVS) instrument obtained these false-color images eight hours after the successful completion of Mars orbit insertion by the spacecraft at 10:24 p.m. EDT Sunday, Sept. 21, after a 10-month journey.

The image shows the planet from an altitude of 36,500 km in three ultraviolet wavelength bands. Blue shows the ultraviolet light from the sun scattered from atomic hydrogen gas in an extended cloud that goes to thousands of kilometers above the planet’s surface. Green shows a different wavelength of ultraviolet light that is primarily sunlight reflected off of atomic oxygen, showing the smaller oxygen cloud. Redsho... more »

Green shows a different wavelength of ultraviolet light that is primarily sunlight reflected off of atomic oxygen, showing the smaller oxygen cloud. Red shows ultraviolet sunlight reflected from the planet’s surface; the bright spot in the lower right is light reflected either from polar ice or clouds.

The oxygen gas is held close to the planet by Mars’ gravity, while lighter hydrogen gas is present to higher altitudes and extends past the edges of the image. These gases derive from the breakdown of water and carbon dioxide in Mars’ atmosphere. Over the course of its one-Earth-year primary science mission, MAVEN observations like these will be used to determine the loss rate of hydrogen and oxygen from the Martian atmosphere. These observations will allow us to determine the amount of water that has escaped from the planet over time.

MAVEN is the first spacecraft dedicated to exploring the tenuous upper atmosphere of Mars.

Science - Very well ... you know

Nasa's keeping it cool, really cool

http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/news/news.php?release=2014-325

NASA's Cold Atom Laboratory (CAL), scheduled to be installed on the International Space Station early 2016, has succeeded in producing a state of matter known as a Bose-Einstein condensate, a key breakthrough for the instrument. 

A Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) is a state of matter of a dilute gas of bosons cooled to temperatures very close to absolute zero. Under such conditions, a large fraction of the bosons occupy the lowest quantum state, at which point quantum effects become apparent on a macroscopic scale.  

CAL researchers used lasers to optically cool rubidium atoms to temperatures almost a million times colder than that of the depths of space. The atoms were then magnetically trapped, and radio waves were used to cool the atoms 100 times lower. The radiofrequency radiation acts like a knife, slicing away the hottest atoms from the trap so that only the coldest remain.

The research is now at the point where this process can reliably create a Bose-Einstein condensate in just seconds.

CAL is designed to study ultra-cold quantum gases on the space station. In the station's microgravity environment, interaction times and temperatures as low as one picokelvin (one trillionth of one Kelvin) should be achievable. That's colder than anything known in nature, and the experiments with CAL could potentially create the coldest matter ever observed in the universe. These breakthrough temperatures unlock the potential to observe new quantum phenomena and test some of the most fundamental laws of physics.

Spinosaurus aegyptiacus: Semiaquatic adaptations in a giant predatory dinosaur

An unusual fossil whose parts were flung across two continents appears to be the first known semi-aquatic dinosaur, according to a report published Thursday by the journal Science. The differences between this Spinosaurus and other theropods are apparent from head to toe. Most theropods, like T. rex, ran on two powerful legs and had small, spindly arms. By contrast, the 50-foot-long Spinosaurus had muscular arms with blade-like claws that could have nabbed slippery prey, and shorter legs that were ill-equipped to walk on land.

Lead author Nizar Ibrahim, a palaeontologist from the University of Chicago, said: "It is a really bizarre dinosaur - there's no real blueprint for it. It has a long neck, a long trunk, a long tail, a 7ft (2m) sail on its back and a snout like a crocodile.... more »



Spinosaurus aegyptiacus: Semiaquatic adaptations in a giant predatory dinosaur

An unusual fossil whose parts were flung across two continents appears to be the first known semi-aquatic dinosaur, according to a report published Thursday by the journal Science. The differences between this Spinosaurus and other theropods are apparent from head to toe. Most theropods, like T. rex, ran on two powerful legs and had small, spindly arms. By contrast, the 50-foot-long Spinosaurus had muscular arms with blade-like claws that could have nabbed slippery prey, and shorter legs that were ill-equipped to walk on land.

Lead author Nizar Ibrahim, a palaeontologist from the University of Chicago, said: "It is a really bizarre dinosaur - there's no real blueprint for it. It has a long neck, a long trunk, a long tail, a 7ft (2m) sail on its back and a snout like a crocodile. And when we look at the body proportions, the animal was clearly not as agile on land as other dinosaurs were, so I think it spent a substantial amount of time in the water."

The new paper: Described adaptations for a semiaquatic lifestyle in the dinosaur Spinosaurus aegyptiacus. These adaptations include retraction of the fleshy nostrils to a position near the mid-region of the skull and an elongate neck and trunk that shift the center of body mass anterior to the knee joint. Unlike terrestrial theropods, the pelvic girdle is downsized, the hind limbs are short, and all of the limb bones are solid without an open medullary cavity, for buoyancy control in water. The short, robust femur with hypertrophied flexor attachment and the low, flat-bottomed pedal claws are consistent with aquatic foot-propelled locomotion. Surface striations and bone microstructure suggest that the dorsal “sail” may have been enveloped in skin that functioned primarily for display on land and in water.

Dreadnoughtus Today is so exciting for a ton of palaeontologists, students, researchers, and dinosaur fans. The video gives a bit of history to where this titanosaur was discovered back in 2005. Almost ten years later and it’s finally gone public.

These fossils spent a lot of time being excavated out of the matrix they were found in; around 4 years with multiple labs working tirelessly to clean and repair them. With such a huge specimen, a lot of man power was required.

You can read the article about Dreadnoughtus here on Drexel University’s website: http://drexel.edu/now/archive/2014/September/Dreadnoughtus-Dinosaur/

Moss agate (also called mocha stone) is a semi-precious gemstone formed from silicon dioxide. It is a form of chalcedony which includes minerals of a green color embedded in the stone, forming filaments and other patterns suggestive of moss.

Four Billion BCE: Battered Earth

"No place on Earth was safe. Four billion years ago, during the Hadean eon, our Solar System was a dangerous shooting gallery of large and dangerous rocks and ice chunks."

Frisbees are a popular summertime toy, but they involve some amazing physics, too. Two key ingredients to their long flight times are their lift generation and spin. A frisbee in flight behaves very much like a wing, generating lift by flying at an angle of attack. This angle of attack and the curvature of the disk rim cause air to accelerate over the top of the leading edge. Airflow over the top of the disk is faster than that across the bottom;  thus, pressure is lower over the top of the frisbee and lift is generated.

Aerodynamic lift and drag aren’t enough to keep the frisbee aloft long, though. Spin matters, too. If the frisbee is launched without spin, gravity acts on it through its center of mass, but lift and drag act through a point off-center because lift tends to be higher on the front of the disk than the back. This offset between gravitational forces and aerodynamicfo... more »

Aerodynamic lift and drag aren’t enough to keep the frisbee aloft long, though. Spin matters, too. If the frisbee is launched without spin, gravity acts on it through its center of mass, but lift and drag act through a point off-center because lift tends to be higher on the front of the disk than the back. This offset between gravitational forces and aerodynamic forces creates a torque that tends to flip the frisbee.

By spinning the frisbee, the thrower gives it a high angular momentum acting about its spin axis. Now instead of flipping the disk, the torque caused by the offset forces just tips the angular momentum vector slightly. Physically, this is known as spin stabilization or gyroscopic stability. Tomorrow we’ll take a closer look at airflow over the frisbee.  ( Image credit: A. Leibel and C. Pugh, source video: Frisbee Toy Box Physics ; recommended papers by: V.
