This super high resolution video (check the original on YouTube) by filmmaker Jacob Schwarz features slow motion diffusion of ink into water. The subtle differences in density between the ink and the water promote instabilities such as the Rayleigh-Taylor instability and its distinctive cascade of mushroom- or umbrella-like shapes. The mixing of two fluids seems like a simple concept, but the reality is beautiful, complex, and always fascinating. (Video credit: J. Schwarz; submitted by Rebecca S.)
Reuters —Bees at a cluster of apiaries in northeastern France have been producing honey in mysterious shades of blue and green, alarming their keepers who now believe residue from containers of M&M’s candy processed at a nearby biogas plant is the cause.
This Is the Most Detailed Image of the Universe Ever Captured
NASA has just published the most detailed view of the Universe ever taken. It’s called the Extreme Deep Field—or XDF for short. It took ten years of Hubble Space Telescope photographs to make it and it shows some the oldest galaxies ever observed by humans, going 13.2 billion years back in time.
It’s a mindblowing, extremely humbling view. Not only for what it shows, but for what it doesn’t show. While this image contains about 5,500 galaxies, it only displays a tiny part of the sky, a ridiculously small slice of the Universe.
Forefront mobilizes the art institution as a guerrilla pop up exhibit facilitator, broadening their reach to engaging new audiences outside their established community. The versatile solution can be developed in virtually any public space transforming it into a gallery, exhibition or screening.
