  • Looks And Sounds Under Melting Ice

    In nature, we have many mysteries.What happens When the lakes freeze over in early winter? During winter,lake water levels can fall as much as 30 to 40 cm. This creates empty cavities and ice caves.In spring when the ice starts to melt, it creates an harmony of sounds. In this video, you can see and hear what the melting ice sounds like from one such cavity . The photography alone is worth the time to watch this video. I find […]

  • Cosmic Cold Cases?

    Solving Cosmic Cold Cases Here on Earth we have the police of every country and state forming squads to solve “cold cases”. Some time these squads have a phenomenal success, due to the improved technology and testing methods we have now that were not available when the case was being investigated. No doubt the use of DNA has aided not only the police but many other aspects of daily life. Well now we have ALMA aiding science and scientists to […]

  • The Early Universe Seen With ALMA

    Zooming in on star-forming galaxies in the early Universe seen with ALMA This short video is a pleasure to watch. With this example of what ALMA is gathering there is an exiting expectation that we will see some spectacular photos, and gather some very useful data in the near future. A team of astronomers has used the new ALMA (Atacama Large Millimeter/sub millimeter Array) telescope to pinpoint the locations of over 100 of the most fertile star-forming galaxies in the […]

  • Horsehead Nebula

    This video is very brief,visually it is a feast for the eyes. It begins with a visible zoom into the Horsehead Nebula and a cross fade to an infrared light view. The sequence starts with a wide-field, ground-based view of the Orion constellation along with the bright stars Sirius (lower center) and Procyon (upper center). The view zooms into the Horsehead region on the left side of Orion’s belt. A cross-fade to infrared light reveals the new Hubble view. To […]

    The Most Important Image Ever Taken

    This video is narrated by Tony Darnell; it talks about the BIG numbers involved when we talk about astronomy. We carry on our daily lives without giving a thought to what’s happening out there in the universe. With Hubble’s help we have come a long way in learning and understanding over the last two decades, and yet the universe is still a dark place that’s hidden and a long way from us. “In 2003, the Hubble Space Telescope took the […]
