Debunking Climate Change Denial Myths ~ The Climate Advisor
Solar power is expensive, right? Actually, the high cost of alternative energy is a good example of a mesofact. As this graph shows, the cost of producing photovoltaic cells has dropped two orders of magnitude over the past 35 years, bringing costs within range of fossil fuel energy production.
The price of #solar panels has dropped by 99% since 1977, bringing solar power to grid parity. The future is #clean #renewable #energy.

Given the frenzy of interest following the announcement of the Apple Watch, you might think wearables will be the next really important shift in tech. Wearables will have their moment in the sun, but they’re simply a transition technology.

Modern nanoscale technology is now allowing researchers to create phased arrays for optical (visible) light. Jie Sun and colleagues fabricated a phased array of 4,096 microscopic antennas on a single silicon chip. Potential applications for this research include biomedical imaging, holography, and laser communications.
Nanoscale antennas, etched in chip, provide precise control of light Nanophotonic phased array has many applications in communications and medicine.

End of an era - Space shuttle Endeavour on 12/10/08 after the STS-126 mission & mounted on its modified Boeing 747 carrier aircraft - flying over California's Mojave Desert on 3-day trip from Edwards AFB back to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Its final home is the California Science Center & can be viewed at Samuel Oschin Space Shuttle Endeavour Display Pavilion from 10/30/12, along with companion exhibits about its missions & the California shuttle program, where the orbiters were built.

Universe & Spaceshuttle
The space shuttle Endeavour being piggy-backed on a 747 to it's new home at the California Science Center in Los Angeles. Very sad to see these magnificent vessels become museum pieces after the 30 year shuttle programme ended in July 2011.
Back in the late '70s a friend who worked at Rockwell had a photo hanging on the wall in his apartment of the space shuttle piggy-backed to a 747. I was fascinated by the concept of a spacecraft taking off like a rocket and landing as a plane - seemed so "George Jetson" at the time. Truly an end of an era.
Pair of Probes to Visit Van Allen Belts - IEEE Spectrum Photo: Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory/NASA SPACE SIBLINGS: An artists impression of the Radiation Belt Storm Probes mission in orbit. Using two identical probes in concert will let scientists learn far more about the Van Allen belts than they could from any number of single-probe missions.

This article has a short clip of what Earth sounds like from outer space.
The Earth's Song! NASA on Friday announced that its twin Radiation Belt Storm Probes had beamed back sounds of the electromagnetic plasma waves that reside within the Van Allen belt – layers of charged atomic particles that surround the Earth. Those waves produce what NASA is calling the “Earthsong,” or “chorus.”

People on the Beach: That’s what Lim Saw Sing saw in this scanning electron microscope image. Lim, who works at Infineon Technologies’ facility in Kulim, Malaysia, exposed a polyimide surface to etching by reactive ions. The resulting image won first prize at the 2012 IEEE International Symposium on the Physical and Failure Analysis of Integrated Circuits (IPFA 2012). Photo: Lim Saw Sing/Infineon Technologies

The winning image in an electron microscope photography competition, entitled People on the Beach by Lim Saw Sing at Infineon Technologies, depicts a polyimide surface after exposure to reactive ion etching and sputter coating. It looks uncannily like a saucy beach scene with dozens of cavorting couples.
