Sea urchin Egg SEM 1030X
Sunday, July 31, 2005

This is an image from work. What you see here is a sea urchin egg, but just the egg (never met a sperm so to speak). The big grid it is on is really very fine mesh, four times as small as a window screen would be.

It is a pretty funny story, but when you mate urchins in the lab, you have to stimulate them into producing the sperm and eggs. You do this by injecting them with a small amount of, basically, salt water. And this puts them in the mood, as it were, and in a few min. you get either orange or milky ppt. And the rest is history. In a few min, the microscopic stork comes and you have a developing sea urchin embryo.

Vendee Globe
Friday, July 29, 2005

The vendee globe, an around the world solo race on a monohull. Among the most dangerous of sports, these are some very serious people. The most recent race is over, but during the races this page gives you all the info, images, videos, positions on a real time map, etc etc... That is a 60 or so foot boat btw... So that gives you a feel for the water conditions.

Q3 history yet again

Here we see one of the few documented images of "Jimmy Marathon" (Porn*).


And this is really a rare one, the only image known that shows Triangle Man. Note the strong showing by DDK as well...

Drive Cam
Monday, July 11, 2005


So basically this is a camera system to be put inside cars for work, rental, etc... These are videos from the demo web page to show how it works. You may need to dl a plugin to play them. Wait for them to load, press play (and some you can play rear view as well, press that button). Its worth it trust me!

Guy breaks mirror A really close call

The best one, be sure to watch rear after you see it the first time

What speedbump?

And finally, the source page to give due credit...

Sand 17x magnification

SEM image of sand 17x Posted by Picasa



This is an image I took of sand grains under the SEM. This is pretty low magnification, only 17x, but already the detail of the grains can be seen. I like low magnification images like this because you can still connect the image to the object as we know it, but you can get a taste of the micro world that waits further study.

Again I ask that you not distribute my images without credit (name, web page, etc). Not that its a big deal, but there is probably some corporate legal issue with these that I dont know about...

Google is again offering a free Sat image program which works quite well. For a while, it was only the online one which frankly sucks. But the free Google earth offers great images once again!

London

Since the 2012 news, and these recent bombings, I want to share some images from my trip to London. It is a really great place, and I am a better person for having been there.

Wasp Eye 1000X

Wasp Eye 1000X Posted by Picasa


This is another SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope) image I took, of the very same wasp head. This one is on the eye surface, at 100 times higher magnification (approx) than the last wasp image, and 1000x more than real life. The perfect nature of this and other structures found at such small scales is pretty wild. These individual polygons are certainly as small as most cells.

Feel free to save these and any images I post, but please dont distribute them without credit! :O) It costs about 40 bucks an hour for me to take these!

I have been checking this page out for years...
They have some great canned items including snake, road runner, and oh so many pork products.
As a fan of potted meats, this page is my Graceland.

Wasp Head 19x
Wasp head 19x magnification Posted by Picasa


This is one of a bunch of images I have taken with the SEM, an electronic microscope able to show very high detail at high magnifications.

This is just the head of wasp, the yellow jacket kind, that I happened to find when I should have been doing real research!
