Spacemen Underground
Since astronauts must learn to adjust to dark, isolated and confined spaces, scant equipment, privacy and supplies--where better to practice for the deprivations of life in space than deep underground? Because navigating safely in a cave requires tethering, 3D orientation, with no-touch areas (statlactites, stalagmites) and treacherous no-go zones, it can provide many of the same technical challenges as a spacewalk.

Photographers Have a Ball
Computer engineer Jonas Pfeil was on the island of Tonga when he created several panoramas by painstakingly taking multiple photos and then stitching them together on a PC.  While hiking, Pfeil thought there must be a better way to capture panoramas. The idea of a ball thrown into the air came to mind, and he began making plans to realize it. Since then, Pfeil and his group have developed a working model of a spherical camera you can toss, juggle or hurl...

Beauty at the Bottom of the Food Chain
Plankton underpins the entire marine food chain. The plankton food web, extending from phytoplankton to whales, the largest mammals that live on earth, the seabirds, crabs, worms and starfish of the seabed, supports the rich diversity of marine life. Despite this important role in the ecosystem, plankton are still mysterious to scientists who still have not charted the full extent of their adaptations and biodiversity

Jupiter’s Newest Paparazzo Launched
NASA's latest high tech spacecraft, launched Friday August 5th, 2011 aboard an Atlas V rocket, is named after the Greek and Roman goddess Juno. Juno was able to peer through the veil of clouds that her husband, Jupiter, drew around himself to hide his mischief. Over a cycle of 33 orbits, Juno will pass over Jupiter's north and south poles, allowing the first close-up looks at the bright auroras there. Juno will cover the distance from Earth to the moon--about 250,000 miles in less than one day's time. With four large moons and many smaller moons, Jupiter forms its own miniature solar system. However, scientists will have to wait another five years for Juno to complete the journey to Jupiter.
