NASA’s latest mission won’t actually reach space – but it will come very close, with a massive observation craft made up of a football stadium-sized high-altitude balloon, along with a special stratospheric telescope instrument that can observe wavelengths of light blocked by Earth’s atmosphere, cast from newly-formed stars. The mission is called the ‘Astrophysics Stratospheric Telescope for High Spectral Resolution Observations at Submillimeter-wavelengths,’ but shortened to ASTHROS.

Filmmaker Jonathan Bregel’s beautifully observed documentary of 36 hours in Shanghai’s People’s Park is paradise for people watchers.

Collective nouns for animals or people are surprising and often poetic in their description – a ‘wilderness’ of monkeys for example. So here’s the second part of what you could loosely call a series.

Power Hour: The History of White LEDs

November 20, 2018

0

Compared to incandescent lightbulbs, LEDs produce a lot more lumens per watt of input power — they’re more efficient at producing light.  Of course, that means that incandescent light bulbs are more efficient at producing heat, and as the days get shorter, and the nights get colder, somewhere, someone who took the leap to LED lighting has a furnace that’s working overtime. And that someone might also wonder how we got here: a world lit by esoteric inorganic semiconductors illuminating phosphors.

If we want drones to do our dirty work for us, they’re going to need to get pretty good at hauling stuff around.
