Mapping Radiation Patterns

Imaging technologies enable detection of frequencies far beyond the visible range of the electromagnetic spectrum. These have radically extended human perception, allowing us to peer deep into our cosmic environment. This photograph of the cosmic microwave background, or CMB, visualizes our primeval origins, what is believed to be radiation shortly after the birth of the universe. It’s a cosmic baby picture, whose patterns represent slight energetic variations that eventually gave rise to quasars, galaxies, stars, planets, and us.

This image appears spherical because it’s a panorama of humanity’s cosmic horizon, taken from the Planck satellite. Because of the limited speed

In the Stavropol region appeared crop circles. Video


31.05.11.Versy as always in such cases, three — aliens, unknown aircraft terrestrial origin, or because farmers attract tourists. But this time there are witnesses.

Five perfect circle — diameter from 6 to 17 meters. Four of them — almost in line. Stalks of wheat gently laid clockwise. The edges of the circles are smooth, and even intricate patterns on the sides. Nothing like the chaotic patterns found in the neighboring Krasnodar region last week — their antics credited wind. Here, obviously someone has worked with the mind.

Agronomist Nicholas Tselik said — the usual wind is not able

Strange patterns on the field near Krasnodar


24.05.11.Segodnya night when I was driving on the highway from the airport towards Rostov, I was able to capture something unusual, causing a traffic jam on the highway, people rushed out of their cars, climbed into the grass, and let it go to perplexity. Any unusual patterns formed on a huge sown field. Grass height of at least a meter in some areas was pinned to the ground.

Luckily, I managed to climb up to the fire hydrant, used by journalists to capture these patterns. With a height of 26 m patterns, images or characters, I did

History of the Russian mittens

Changing wind patterns in the Arctic caused a record melting of the ice


Changing wind patterns in the northern hemisphere has become one of the main reasons that the area of sea ice in the Arctic this summer has reached a record low values, the Internet portal LiveScience, citing a study published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.


By August of this year, according to the National Data Centre for snow and ice (NSIDC) United States, the area of Arctic sea ice on record fell below the record low recorded in 2007, amounting to 4.1 million square kilometers (the lowest level since 1979,

— The best personal trainer for us — our DNA — said the Italian molecular biologist Alberto Santini. — In our genetic code data is available on how and how much we have to practice what we have to eat, and even what kind of sports we are physically predisposed. Through the analysis of DNA, we can now know everything.

Scientists believe the genetic profile can suggest menus, recommended for you, as well as "your" sport, writes Test is simple and costs from 150 to 200 euros. Using a sample of saliva swab
