  • Canada Maps Antarctic Ice Shelves in Preparation of 2012 Asteroid Strike "University of British Columbia Professor published an online article that projected an 800m asteroid would hit Antarctica in the fall of 2012. His article was on the www.phas.ubc.ca website for 2 days before it abruptly disappeared. The initial data was gathered by The Balloon-borne Large-Aperture Submillimeter Telescope (BLAST) at McMurdo Station, Antarctica. The theorized asteroid was then tracked by Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope on Mauna Kea, which (with the Adaptive Optics Bonnette) supplies probably the sharpest images currently obtainable from the ground.When I broke the story in September it caused quite a sensation. University of BC even had an official denial on the PHAS.ubc.ca website.Well Canada is taking the lead role in mapping the possible outcome of the Interstellar impact on the Ice-shelf in Antarctica.

  • A Night on the Chajnantor Plateau, Chile [720p] This video shows the superbly clear sky of the Chajnantor Plateau, at an altitude of 5000 meters in the Chilean Andes. This extremely high and dry site is home to APEX and ALMA, two observatories probing the sky at millimeter and submillimeter wavelengths — between infrared light and radio waves. APEX, the Atacama Pathfinder Experiment, is visible as the bright area on the left, whereas the Array Operations Site (AOS) Technical Building of ALMA, the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array, is visible on the right. While APEX consists of a single antenna and has been operating since 2005, ALMA is currently being built by ESO and its international partners, and will consist of an array of 66 antennas. As the night proceeds, the starry sky displays its beauties, including the outstanding shape of the Milky Way; just below the horizon, headlights of cars pass by, as astronomers and engineers on the site are busy working and driving from one facility to the other and further down, to the ALMA Operations Support Facility (OSF), the base camp for the everyday, routine operation of the observatory, located at an altitude of 2900 meters. credit: ESO / S.

  • ESO ALMA Antenna Time Lapse #1 [720p] Time-lapse of a whole night at the ALMA Array Operations Site (AOS), located at 5000 meters altitude on the Chajnantor plateau, in the II Region of Chile. As the Moon sets at the beginning of the night, three of the first ALMA antennas start tests as part of the ongoing Commissioning and Science Verification process. Because they are pointing at the same target in the sky at any moment, their movements are perfectly synchronized. As the sky appears to rotate clockwise around the south celestial pole (roughly on the upper left edge of the video), the Milky Way goes down slowly, until it is lying almost horizontal before sunrise. The center of our galaxy becomes visible during the second half of the night as a yellowish bulge crossed by dark lanes in the center of the image, just above the antennas. The flashes on the ground are the car lights of the guards patrolling at the AOS. ALMA, the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array is the largest astronomical project in existence and is a truly global partnership between the scientific communities of East Asia, Europe and North America with Chile.

  • Far Infrared and Sub-millimeter Astronomy - Part 4 Most telescopes in the world work at visible light wavelengths because this is where stars shine the brightest. However in those places where new objects (eg planets, stars, and galaxies) are being born the light is emitted at much longer wavelengths. Thus, to observe the births of new objects requires instrumentation in the far-infrared and submillimeter. Facilities at these wavelengths are either recently built or still under development. In this talk I will review the observational signatures of the formation of new objects, the instruments available, and some of the new instruments under development to do this science. One of these new instruments, the Herschel Space Observatory was launched in May of 2009 - containing a significant piece of Waterloo hardware!

  • Zoom Into Galaxy SMM J2135-0102 [720p] This zoom into the location of the distant galaxy SMM J2135-0102 reveals how it was first discovered by astronomers observing a massive galaxy cluster using submillimeter wavelengths of light, with the Atacama Pathfinder Experiment (APEX) telescope. After zooming to the location of the galaxy cluster the position of SMM J2135-0102, as discovered by APEXs LABOCA camera, is shown in red. A further zoom shows how follow-up observations with the Submillimeter Array (also in red) revealed the clouds where stars are forming in the galaxy with great precision. Our view of the galaxy is magnified by gravitational lensing, which also produces a doubling of the image; the apparent eight regions in the Submillimeter Array observations actually represent four distinct regions of star formation in the galaxy. credit: ESO/APEX/M.

  • Playstation 3 Move Trailer [HD][HQ] Order your Playstation Move today! Out of stock in most B&M stores!! US - UK - The PlayStation move takes motion-sensing gaming to the next level. True 1:1, sub-millimeter tracking puts gamers into the virtual world of the PS3 and allows them to interact with the environment as if the objects were in their own living room. The controller uses the PlayStation Eye Camera in conjunction with the light emitting "orb" atop the controller to calculate your position in three-dimensional space. As the orb can change colour, multiple controllers can be tracked simultaneously. The orb can also be used to enhance in-game actions, for instance changing to red when using a "fire spell". The controller will feature traditional buttons, including a trigger, for those actions which motion-sensing will not capture, such as firing a gun. The possibilities for the motion controller range from simplifying the user-interface of a real-time strategy (selection and commands) to true sword fighting in your favourite role-playing game. Introducing the PlayStation Move The PlayStation 3 Motion Controller contains built-in motion sensors, including a colour-changing orb at its head, which interacts with the PlayStation Eye Camera to track movement. This tracking is precise, meaning the PlayStation 3 Motion Contoller recreates every single swing of the arm and twist of the wrist exactly on screen. Time to Move The PlayStation Move gives PlayStation 3 gamers a new way to play ...

  • ALMA (Atacama Large Millimeter Array) The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) is an international partnership between Europe, North America, East Asia and the Republic of Chile to build the largest astronomical project in existence. It is an astronomical interferometer, comprising an array of 66 12-meter and 7-meter diameter radio telescopes observing at millimeter and submillimeter wavelengths. It is being built on the Chajnantor plateau at 5000 meters altitude in the Atacama desert of northern Chile. ALMA is expected to provide insight on star birth during the early universe and detailed imaging of local star and planet formation. Costing more than a billion dollars, it is the most ambitious ground-based telescope currently under construction. ALMA will begin scientific observations in the second half of 2011 and is scheduled to be fully operational by the end of 2012.

  • Elusive Planet Reshapes a Ring Around Neighboring Star NASA Hubble Space Telescope's most detailed visible-light image ever taken of a narrow, dusty ring around the nearby star Fomalhaut (HD 216956), offers the strongest evidence yet that an unruly and unseen planet may be gravitationally tugging on the ring. Hubble unequivocally shows that the center of the ring is a whopping 1.4 billion miles (15 astronomical units) away from the star. This is a distance equal to nearly halfway across our solar system. The most plausible explanation, astronomers said, is that an unseen planet moving in an elliptical orbit is reshaping the ring with its gravitational pull. The geometrically striking ring, tilted obliquely toward Earth, would not have such a great offset if it were simply being influenced by Fomalhaut's gravity alone. An offset of the ring center from the star has been inferred from previous and longer wavelength observations using submillimeter telescopes on Mauna Kea, Hawaii, the Spitzer Space Telescope, Caltech's Submillimeter Observatory and applying theoretical modeling and physical assumptions. Now Hubble's sharp images directly reveal the ring's offset from Fomalhaut.
