LDCM Satellite Takes Temperature Of The Salton Sea
2013-04-22 10:58:37

NASA An image from an instrument aboard NASA's Landsat Data Continuity Mission or LDCM satellite may look like a typical black-and-white image of a dramatic landscape, but it tells a story of temperature. The dark waters of the Salton Sea pop in the middle of the Southern California desert. Crops create a checkerboard pattern stretching south to the Mexican border. If you looked at the Salton Sea in person, your eyes would not see anything presented in the LDCM image. Instead of showing...

Low-cost RLT(TM) increases fiber optic brightness in surgical operating systems VALENCIA, Calif., April 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Wavien, Inc. has introduced a LED based medical illumination platform based on its proprietary Recycling Light Technology (RLT(TM)). RLT technology, which is implemented using a single RLT reflector, significantly increases the brightness available to fiber optic bundles used frequently in surgical operating systems. Wavien is actively looking to...

Engineers Create Device To Read While You Run
2013-04-16 11:54:52

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Engineers from Purdue University have devised a new system that will facilitate a very specific type of physical and mental multi-tasking — helping treadmill runners to read text on a display screen. The system, called ReadingMate, compensates for constantly bobbing eyes so runners can train for a marathon while reading their favorite novel. "Not many people can run and read at the same time," said Ji Soo Yi, an assistant...

Asteroid Tracking Sensor Passes Key Test
2013-04-16 07:07:54

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A critical design test for an infrared sensor that could improve NASA's future ability to detect and track asteroids and comets has been passed. The Near Earth Object Camera's (NEOCam) performance in an environment that mimicked the temperatures and pressures of deep space were assessed by the test. NEOCam will be the key instrument for a proposed new asteroid-hunting space-based telescope for which design and capability details have...

FAIRFIELD, Conn., April 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Maxtech International, Inc. is releasing the 2013 edition of its market research report on commercial and dual-use infrared imaging equipment markets (Vol. IRW-C). World infrared imaging markets continue to evolve rapidly. After double digit growth rates during the last five years, these markets took a pause in 2012 at $3 billion. The reason for this appears to be a combination of events in the various end-user markets, including thermography...

Hidden Fresco Found In Artwork Via TSA Scanner Technology
2013-04-12 12:14:59

Peter Suciu for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online While those full body scanners that the TSA now employs in many airports may be considered “too revealing” to some travelers forced to walk through them, the same imaging technology is now being used to look under a painting on a wall to see if another work of art may be underneath. Scientists working at the Louvre Museum in Paris have used the imaging technology to reveal images beneath a famous, but known forged...

New Scanner Can Make Brain Images While Mice Move
2013-04-11 14:29:00

Alan McStravick for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Animal and pathology researchers received exciting news this week from a team of scientists representing the US Department of Energy´s (DOE) Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Johns Hopkins Medical School and the University of Maryland. The collaborative team announced that they have developed a method for imaging the brains of mice while they are awake and unrestrained. Typically,...

In the latest achievement in efforts to see what may lie underneath the surface of great works of art, scientists today described the first use of an imaging technology like that used in airport whole-body security scanners to detect the face of an ancient Roman man hidden below the surface of a wall painting in the Louvre Museum in Paris. They described unveiling the image, which scientists and art historians say may be thousands of years old, during the 245th National Meeting &...

Star Formation -- Star formation is the process by which gas in molecular clouds gets transformed into stars. In the current paradigm of star formation, cores of molecular clouds (regions of specially high density) became gravitationally unstable, and start to concentrate. Part of the gravitational energy lost in the process is radiated in the infrared, another part increases the temperature of the core. The accretion of material happen partially though a circumstellar disc. When...

Electromagnetic Spectrum -- The electromagnetic spectrum describes the various types of electromagnetic radiation based on their wavelengths. Radio, representing wavelengths from a few feet to well over a mile, is at one end of the spectrum. Gamma ray radiation is at the other end: the wavelength of the harder types is so short, in the subatomic range, that we do not have instruments capable of directly measuring it. While the above classification scheme is generally accurate, in...
