Astrobiology - The hunt for life beyond Earth ONE OF THE OLDEST QUESTIONS MAY BE ANSWERED IN OUR LIFETIMES. ARE WE ALONE? Nat Geo- Frank Drake is still looking for extraterrestrial signals—a discovery that would trump everything else.

In the past 20 years astronomers have found two thousand planets orbiting sun-like stars outside our solar system. The question is not so much whether other life is out there, but what kind of life it might be. If it is not even carbon-based, for example, how can we hope to recognize it? Astrobiologists are studying the most extreme life-forms on Earth, from Antarctic ice sheets to Mexican caves, looking for clues.

GALAPAGOS ISLANDS. The Galápagos Islands are an archipelago of volcanic islands distributed on either side of the Equator in the Pacific Ocean. The Islands & surrounding waters form an Ecuadorian province, a national park & a biological marine reserve. Famed for their vast number of endemic species studied by Charles Darwin during the voyage of the Beagle; whose observations & collections contributed to the inception of Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection.
Earth from space, Galapagos Islands #pacificocean
Galapagos Islands in the Pacific Ocean. It has been 10 years since the European Space Agency has launched Envisat, an 8-ton satellite, into space. Over the past decade, the satellite has captured thousands of stunning images of Earth.

Wired magazine is celebrating the 10th anniversary of Envisat--the European Space Agency's satellite--with these great images. This one is of the Galapagos Islands. It's a compilation of three ASAR acquisitions, and the colors result from variations in the surface that occurred between acquisitions.
The Interplanetary Transport Network (ITN) is a collection of gravitationally determined pathways through the solar system that require very little energy for an object to follow. The ITN makes particular use of Lagrange points as locations where trajectories through space are redirected using little or no energy. These points have the peculiar property of allowing objects to orbit around them, despite the absence of any material object therein.

Interplanetary Superhighway Makes Space Travel Simpler; Why UFOs Have Never Visited Earth -- and Probably Never Will Posted: 08/06/2013 5:15 pm by David J.

microlaunchers - cheap tiny robot spaceships - an idea whose time is come.
Illustrated here is the 'Interplanetary Transport Network', a visualisation of how spacecraft can traverse the solar system using various gravity assists. Carion explains that his map doesn't involve the use of these gravity assists, which makes space travel around the solar system much easier
(Space Highway 1/2) Space travel is expensive, and part of the reason for that is the cost of fuel. Spacecrafts need a lot of it to overcome Earth’s gravity & even more to propel themselves past other moons and planets. But scientists think they can map out a way to take advantage of the “gravitational corridors” that surround planetary bodies.

Since 1988, Richard Lenski has watched E. coli bacteria multiply through 59,000 generations, a span that has allowed him to observe evolution in real time. He also found that one of the 12 bacterial lines he has maintained has developed into what he believes is a new species.

PEEK - Portable Electronic Eye Test - new app allows eye doctors to remotely examine eyes and scan retinas using high resolution digital imaging via smart phone - improves vision care access to people in critically under-served areas
New Application Uses Smartphones To Give Eye Exams Portable Eye Examination Kit. And what it does is bring essential technology to some of the world’s most remote areas where standard, less portable eye examination machines may not reach.

Optician's clinic that fits a pocket - For remote diagnosis of people in rural areas a doctor is is trialling a smartphone app called Peek (Portable Eye Examination Kit) on 5,000 people in Kenya. It uses the camera to scan the lens of the eye for cataracts and illuminates the retina to scan for disease.
Peek (Portable Eye Examination Kit) has won the 2014 Design of the year award, in the digital category. This extraordinary new system will enable eye testing, with ease, anywhere in the world. http://www.peekvision.org/
This instrument is clear evidence of the links between the astrolabe and astrology. On one side is an astrolabe for a single latitude, and on the other an astrological volvelle, used to find the positions of planets and other celestial bodies, especially in relation to the traditional astrological houses.
