Inspired by the 1970s Space Invaders video game, a small and colorful mosaic has been found on the International Space Station by ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti.
The French artist known as Invader has established his urban alien artwork in more than 60 cities all over the world, including Rome, Paris, New York, Manchester, Hong Kong and Los Angeles. In 2012 he sent a mosaic into the stratosphere on a balloon.
Following the invasion of Earth orbit, these space invaders have been spotted not only in the… (Finish Reading on ESA)
The First Ever Photograph Of Light As Both A Particle And Wave
Light behaves both as a particle and as a wave. Since the days of Einstein, scientists have been trying to directly observe both of these aspects of light at the same time. Now, scientists at EPFL have succeeded in capturing the first-ever snapshot of this dual behavior.
Quantum mechanics tells us that light can behave simultaneously as a particle or a wave. However, there has never been an experiment able to capture both natures of light at the same time; the closest we have come is seeing either wave or particle, but always at different times. Taking a radically different experimental approach, EPFL scientists have now been able to take the first ever snapshot of light behaving both as a wave and as a particle.
When UV light hits a metal surface, it causes an emission of electrons. Albert Einstein explained this “photoelectric” effect by proposing that light – thought to only be a wave – is also a stream of particles. Even though a variety of experiments have successfully observed both the particle- and wave-like behaviors of light, they have never been able to observe both at the same time.
A new approach on a classic effect
A research team led by Fabrizio Carbone at EPFL has now carried out an experiment with a… (Continue Reading)
Thank to the great LexMedia PEG TV Station in Lexington Massachusetts for being our 45th syndicated station to carry the Cosmic Cafe Show!
Lexington is a town located in Middlesex County, Massachusetts, United States. The population was 31,394 at the 2010 census, in nearly 11,100 households. Settled in 1642, this town is prominent for being the site of the first shot of the American Revolutionary War, in the Battle of Lexington on April 19, 1775, colloquially known as the “Shot heard round the world” when news spread about the revolution. It is part of the Greater Boston Area and the sixth wealthiest small city in the United States.
There are several fascinating probes that SpaceProb.es has provide with their easy links – including the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (link) which seems to show fairly detailed images on both the dark side and light side of the Moon!
I found out about this via the original CNet.com article, which I have excerpted below:
Like to chase space probes? Track all active ones from moon and beyond
Crave’s Michael Franco talks with the women who built SpaceProb.es, a colorful and easy-to-use new website that schools you on almost 30 active probes in our solar system.
When Ariel Waldman and Lisa Ballard took a look around space-related Internet sites recently, they discovered something missing. There weren’t any sites that provided a comprehensive picture of all the space probes drifting through our solar system. So on Thursday, February 19, the women launched a mission of their own: Spaceprob.es.
The new website delivers the details on 29 active space probes. These, Waldman told me, include any satellite with which we still… Continue reading on CNet.com
Plumes seen reaching high above the surface of Mars are causing a stir among scientists studying the atmosphere on the Red Planet.On two separate occasions in March and April 2012, amateur astronomers reported definite plume-like features developing on the planet.The plumes were seen rising to altitudes of over 250 km above the same region of Mars on both occasions. By comparison, similar features seen in the past have not exceeded 100 km.
“At about 250 km, the division between the atmosphere and outer space is very thin, so the reported plumes are extremely unexpected,” says Agustin Sanchez-Lavega of the Universidad del País Vasco in Spain, lead author of the paper reporting the results in the journal Nature.
Jesse Marcel, III is one of our future guests on the Cosmic Cafe Show, and if you don’t recognize his name, but is sounds familiar to you, Jesse is the grandson of Captain Jesse Marcel from the famed 1947 UFO Crash in Roswell, New Mexico.
Below is a video about the TYPHOON F1
Connecting land dwellers to the sky– the Typhoon represents a leap forward to an amazing future.
Thanks for helping, even if it is just a small amount, every contributor to the campaign will help bring the future to today!
Also, please stay tuned friends, I will be announcing Jesse’s appearance on the Cosmic Cafe Show, to talk about this campaign for the TYPHOON F1, and maybe I will even be able to get Jesse to discuss what his Grandfather told him, with regard to the UFO crash in Roswell, New Mexico.
Well my Paranormal friends – Today I can officially tell you that the Cosmic Cafe Show has broken 40 TV Stations now Broadcasting our talk show with a potential audience of just over 2.4 Million Viewers!
We are not even finished with our First Season – and we are growing at this break-neck pace with no real advertising budget!
Season II is going to be GREAT – I have booked many new Guests, including one who is very VERY FAMOUS within our UFO / Paranormal Community! The announcement of this guest will be coming very VERY Soon!
