The world’s first photo of black hole was published back in April 2019, and scientists have been laboring to find ways to capture sharper images of the mysterious regions of spacetime. Scientists are now saying that focusing on a black hole’s “photon ring” may lead to a huge increase in sharpness. In a new paper […]
Johns Hopkins University and the Rochester Institute of Technology recently announced Images from Science 3 (IFS3), a collection and international touring exhibit of the best and most thought-provoking images curated from the fields of astronomy, medical photography and illustration, material sciences photography, and related industries.
The world of science was taken by storm this week when scientists from the University of Glasgow released a scientific paper that showed an image of Quantum Entanglement (more specifically Bell Entanglement) taking place.
If you’ve never learned the technical details of what “middle gray” and “18% gray” are, check out this 6-minute video by Filmmaker IQ. John Hess shares the math and science behind the concepts to demystify them.
NASA is looking for people who are willing to regularly snap and share photos of clouds. The space agency is turning to citizen scientists for a cloud observation project that will help validate the images captured by satellites in space.
Standard schlieren imaging techniques use a large mirror to be able to visualize heat or pressure differences in air. The problem with these techniques is that they require large precision telescope mirrors that are very expensive.
Here’s a 2. 5-minute video recorded by a GoPro Session action camera that was given a trip through an electron beam irradiator. “Radiation shielded Gopro Session is sent through electron beam irradiator,” writes Andrew Seltzman of RTF Technologies, who posted the video in December 2016.
Hyperfocal distance is a tool often used by certain genres of photography to render an entire scene in focus. It allows you to capture the foreground through to the background, keeping the whole image sharp.
