For more than 10 years the H.E.S.S. observatory in Namibia, run by an international collaboration of 42 institutions in 12 countries, has been mapping the center of our galaxy in very-high-energy gamma rays.

These gamma rays are produced by cosmic rays from the innermost region of the galaxy.

A detailed analysis of the latest H.E.S.S. data, published on 16 March 2016 in Nature, reveals for the first time a source of this cosmic radiation at energies never observed before in the Milky Way: the supermassive black hole at the center of the galaxy, likely to accelerate cosmic rays to energies 100 times larger than those achieved at the largest terrestrial particle accelerator, the LHC at CERN.

Being models can’t be too ‘ruff’! Photographer’s pet dogs are the stars of hilarious photo series 

dog_model

Elke Vogelsang, based in Hildesheim, Germany, is a professional photographer who mainly shoots people and pets. In her spare time she snaps photographs of her dogs Noodles, Ioli and Scout. 

‘We always had dogs in our family and my mother is a photography enthusiast herself,’ Vogelsang writes. ‘So I always had a camera with me on all school excursions and holidays. Therefore, dogs and photography always played a major part in my life.’

Vogelsang also says she wanted to be able to capture the ‘beauty and character’ when she got first dog Noodles. She says photography also offered a creative outlet after the illness of a family member.

Vogelsang writes that she refers to dogs Noodles, Loli and Scout as her ‘photography companion dogs.’

‘Since all three of my own dogs are so very different in character, it’s still very fascinating to try to predict their behaviour or to see how you can translate an idea into a photograph with them,’ she says. 

It also doesn’t seem like Vogelsang will switch professions anytime soon.

‘I could spend all day taking photos of dogs,’ she writes. ‘I never get tired of their beauty, energy and patience. One of the most exciting parts of my job is to get to know so many different characters among my animal models. Each and every one of them is so unique and amazing. Every photo session is unpredictable and I love the surprises and challenges.’

Mind of Plants : New Scientific Field of Research, the Neurobiology of Plants

Posted in 2014 with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 26, 2014 by THE BOLDCORSICANFLAME AND CAPITAINE FLAMME INTREPIDE

Over the recent years, a small but growing group of researchers from Austria, Germany, Italy, UK, Japan, South Africa and the USA, has developed a new scientific field of research: the neurobiology of plants. Their discoveries question the traditional boundaries set between the animal and the vegetable kingdom: plants are capable to develop the cognitive process claimed by humans and animals.

Comet ISON’s tail extends more than 8 million kilometers behind the comet’s nucleus. For comparison, that’s 21 times the distance between Earth and the Moon.
