Bill Sienkiewicz 1983: Conan 1984 calendar

The Conan calendar represents Sienkiewicz’s earliest instances of painted comics-related content. The Conan character existed in this Frank Frazetta - influenced world of pulp fantasy, so naturally it would lend itself to painting.

spectrum: The Sun, photographed by Solar Dynamics Observatory, 28th August 2014.

10 frames; each frame is a composite of 3 images in different wavelengths. Here, I have used 3 wavelengths in the extreme UV range (17.1, 19.3, and 21.1 nm), for the blue, green, and red channels which usually represent visible light of about 475, 530, and 680 nm, respectively.

Sequence covers about 11 hours.

spaceplasma:

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world’s largest and most powerful particle collider, built by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). The LHC is designed to answer some of the most profound questions about the universe: What is the origin of mass? Why are we made of matter and not antimatter? What is dark matter made of? It could also provide important new clues about conditions in the very early universe, when the four forces of nature were rolled into one giant superforce.

Check out the 4-dimensional analogue of the dedocahedron, the hyper-dodecahedron or the 120-cell (or hecatonicosachoron). The image is a projection of this 4-dimensional object, visualised as a Schlegel diagram. The hyper-dodecahedron is composed of 120 dodecahedra, 720 pentagons, 600 vertices and 1200 edges.The thinner the line, the further it is away in 4 dimensions.Fathom the UniverseRead more: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/120-cell

Seeing a supernovae within hours of the explosion
For the first time ever, scientists have gathered direct evidence of a rare Wolf-Rayet star being linked to a specific type of stellar explosion known as a Type IIb supernova. Peter Nugent of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory says they caught this star – a whopping 360 million light years away – just a few hours after it exploded.
