Infrared Saturn Clouds

Swirling pastels of Saturn’s clouds appear majestic in this false-color view from our Cassini spacecraft. Using a combination of spectral filters sensitive to infrared light help us determine the structure and depth of cloud features in the atmosphere.

Physics undergrads might joke that the universe is made of harmonic oscillators, but they're not far off.

Everything—Yes, Everything—Is a Harmonic Oscillator

Share on Facebook TweetHumans have dreamed about spaceflights forever but only in the second half of the 20th century were developed rockets that were powerful enough to overcome the force of gravity to reach orbital velocities that could open space to human exploration. Everything started in 1957 when the Soviets launched the first artificial satellite, Sputnik …

Evolutionary biologist Matthew Cobb unpicks a lecture that, sixty years ago, set the course for the genetic revolution.

The lecture that changed biology

Sixty years ago this week one of the greatest British scientists Francis Crick gave a lecture in London in which he accurately predicted how genes work setting the course for the genetic revolution we are now living through.

Take a moment to jump straight up and down... Go ahead, we’ll wait. How high was your jump? And how long did it last?
