  • Atrium Carceri - Observatory What you hear: ("Atrium Carceri" - "Observatory" from the album "Ptahil") The fourth album from composer Simon Heath (Sweden) ventures beyond the vestiges of your mortality, granting a fleeting glance at the world beyond the veil. As ever, Simon has reinvented the genre as well as himself with a unique ambience created from his ever-increasingly complex and obscure techniques of mental dissolution and musical innovation. (Cold Meat Industry) Ambient music is a musical genre in which sound is more important than notes. It is generally identifiable as being broadly atmospheric and environmental in nature. It's primary feature is that the music is intended to drift in and out of the listener's awareness while creating its effect on the listener's consciousness. Dark ambient is a general term for any kind of ambient music with a "dark" or dissonant feel, but often involves extensive use of digital reverb to create vast sonic spaces for frightening, bottom-heavy sounds such as deep drones, gloomy male chorus, echoing thunder, and distant artillery. It has an eerie feel. Generally the music tends to evoke a feeling of solitude, melancholy, confinement, and isolation. However, while the theme in the music tends to be "dark" in nature, some artists create more organic soundscapes.

  • Constructing The World's Largest Observatory ... ESOcast 17: Constructing ALMA — The World's Largest Observatory. High in the Chilean Andes, the first antennas of the Atacama Large Millimeter/ submillimeter Array, or ALMA for short, move in unison. Work progresses at a frantic pace in this ambitious project, which, in a few years from now, will consist of 66 antennas, working together at an altitude of 5000 metres. Once completed, ALMA will enable astronomers to study the cold Universe in unprecedented detail. --- Please SUBSCRIBE to Science & Reason: • • • --- In this episode we are going to visit the ALMA observatory in the Atacama Desert in Chile. Here, ESO, together with its international partners, is building what will become the world´s largest astronomical facility. ALMA will observe the Universe in millimetre and submillimetre wavelengths. This will allow astronomers to study both very cold objects as well as very distant objects in the early Universe. And because such observations are disturbed by water vapour in the atmosphere, ALMA's being built on one of the driest places on Earth, the Chajnantor plateau at an altitude of 5000 metres, which also makes it one of the highest astronomy sites in the world. ALMA will be operated at two distinct sites: First, there's the Array Operations Site up on the plateau where the antenna are actually located and then further down there's the Operations Support Facility. Constructing the ALMA observatory in ...

  • Solar Dynamics Observatory: Exploring The Sun ... The Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) will provide a new eye on the sun that will deliver solar images with 10 times better resolution than high-definition television. This mission will zoom in on the cause of severe space weather—solar activity such as sunspots, solar flares, and coronal mass ejections. --- Please SUBSCRIBE to Science & Reason: • • • --- Space weather can pose a threat to astronauts as well as to aircraft crews flying over Earths northern and southern polar regions—and thats just the tip of the iceberg. Satellite communications, navigation systems, and electrical power to our homes can all be disrupted by magnetic storms triggered by solar activity. The Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) is the first mission to be launched for NASAs Living With a Star (LWS) program. The goal of the LWS program is to develop the scientific understanding necessary to effectively address those aspects of the sun and solar system that directly affect life and society. This mission was developed and will be managed by NASAs Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md. SDO is a 5-year mission that will determine how the suns magnetic field is generated, structured, and converted into violent solar events like turbulent solar wind, solar flares, and Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs). The solar wind is a continuous stream of electrically charged particles that flow from the sun and fill the solar system with charged ...
  • The Mount Wilson Observatory Sat. 25th July Up with dawn and rolled up to the Mnt Wilson observatory. Did a piece reflecting about the Ray Comfort discussion from the ridge with a great overview of the valley. Spent the morning kicking around the observatory. Had a chat with some of the ground staff. Eventually found that the Hooker scope had wifi and power! ;-) score! Uploaded the reflections vid and did a spot of editing. While doing this a tour came through and I picked up with them. Got talking to the guide who introduced me to some of the astronomers on site. Had a chat about the potential plausibility of redoing some of Hubbles work on cephids in Andromeda. Picked up with a guy called Olmar who was using a 16 in scope on site (apparently given to the observatory by Meade) and only in semi-regular use. The Comet impact on Jupiter was going to be visible about midnight, and we teamed up (me with the webcam, him with the big ass scope). Spent the afternoon trying to get it all to work on the early moon (but very hard due to virtually no contrast). Later it turned out a group from Carnegie Mellon Alumni were coming through and using the 60 in. The Alumni were a fairly social, and well educated lot. Quite an array of astros and non-astros. Did what I could to help out, but was getting some fairly chilly vibes from one of the woman organizers. Shortly after 11ish I was the first to identify the impact site. When it was quiet we set up the web cam and shot a load of footage. Without the marine layer ...

  • Birth of a Great Observatory Watch this and other space videos at For many centuries, maps of the southern sky showed extensive blank areas -- the Terra Incognita of the heavens. The year 1595 For the first time, Dutch traders set sail to the East Indies. At night, navigators Pieter Keyser and Frederik de Houtman measured the positions of more than 130 stars in the southern sky. Soon, celestial globes and maps showed twelve new constellations, none of which had ever been seen before by any European. See this fascinating story from ESOCast. The British were the first to construct a permanent astronomical outpost in the southern hemisphere. The Royal Observatory at the Cape of Good Hope was founded in 1820. Not much later, John Herschel built his own private observatory, close to South Africa's famous Table Mountain. What a view! Dark skies. Bright clusters and star clouds high overhead. Little wonder that Harvard, Yale and Leiden observatories followed suit with their own southern stations. But the exploration of the southern sky still took lots of courage, passion and perseverance. Until fifty years ago, almost all major telescopes were located north of the equator. So why is the southern sky so important? First of all, because it was largely uncharted territory. You just can't see the whole sky from Europe. A prominent example is the centre of the Milky Way, our home galaxy. It can hardly be seen from the northern hemisphere, but from the south, it passes high overhead. And then there ...
  • Travel Los Angeles, California - The Griffith Observatory Take a tour of Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, United States -- part of the World's Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats. When most people think of seeing stars in LA, their minds jump to celebrities. Really, though, the best place for star-gazing in Los Angeles is the Griffith Observatory. Colonel Griffith J. Griffith donated both land and money for the observatory in his will. Construction began in 1933, and the complex opened in 1935 and was immediately swamped by visitors. The vast observatory includes telescopes and a planetarium. This facility is an important piece of history as Apollo astronauts learned celestial navigation here.
