Quotereally wasn't expecting this at all! I just wanted a quick cute fun video for the weekend. In the end, I was stunned by what I found!
QuoteWorld's sharpest super telephoto lens?
The video clips where filmed in August 2015 at only 290m above sea level. (Camping side in Germany)
Some zooming in and out, and spinning in post production with Magix VDL 2016.
Panasonic GH4 and a modified Leica 2.8/400mm + 1.4x + 2x + 2x Leica Apo Extender.
I wanted make the viewer, to feel like observing the moon from a space craft.
I made some test with a "Siemens Star" this summer, resolution = 1mm at 480m (0.43 arcsec.) !! This means 1200 lines/mm, of course wide open!
QuoteThis is a video made by Rudy Rucker to demonstrate the 1990Autodesk program, "James Gleock's CHAOS: the Software." The program was written by Rudy Rucker, Josh Gordon, and John Walker. Topics include dynamical systems, strange attractors, Mandelbrot set fractals (inclucinbz a 4D cubic version), cellular automata, and fractal landscapes.
QuoteThe Earth and Moon are like identical twins, made up of the exact same materials -- which is really strange, since no other celestial bodies we know of share this kind of chemical relationship. What's responsible for this special connection? Looking for an answer, planetary scientist and MacArthur "Genius" Sarah T. Stewart discovered a new kind of astronomical object -- a synestia -- and a new way to solve the mystery of the Moon's origin.
QuoteFeeling secure in your human intelligence? Watch these animals show off their brains by solving problems. Who's really in charge?
QuoteUsing a special drill and holder to drill square holes in material on a drill press.
QuoteWhat's the deal with these strange arctic holes that not even NASA can explain?
QuoteAlmost nobody noticed this, but back in December a chunk of space rock slammed into the Earth's atmosphere at 32km/sec over the Bering sea. The aerodynamic forces tore it apart and it released energy equivalent to a 170 kiloton weapon.
And almost nobody noticed.
