SEM of the antenna of white butterfly Featured June Print

SEM of the antenna of white butterfly

Butterfly antenna. Scanning electron micrograph of the surface of the antenna of the large white butterfly, Pieris brassicae. Antennae are the paired mobile sense organs found on the butterfly's head. The surface is covered with sensory bristles (hair-like) that respond to various stimuli. Some detect aromatic molecules, some detect air movement and others sound. They all work together to monitor the butterfly's environment. At upper right and lower left of the frame are scales (white, feather-like). These are similar to wing scales but may have functions additional to protection and coloration on the antenna. Magnification x240 at 5x7cm size. Magnification: x530 at 6x4.5 inch size


Upgraded Arecibo radio telescope with subreflector Featured June Print

Upgraded Arecibo radio telescope with subreflector

Upgraded Arecibo radio observatory. Aerial fisheye lens view of the Arecibo radio telescope, with its gregorian subreflector system newly installed in 1997. This largest radio telescope in the world is situated in a natural crater in the mountains of Puerto Rico. The new subreflector system with two mirrors is housed in a 90-tonne dome receiver seen suspended 130 metres above the fixed dish. It can send and receive signals to examine planets and asteroids & also analyse Earth's upper atmosphere. To scan the sky the dome is steered above the 305m dish. The upgrade includes a 16m high buffer screen around the dish and a new radar transmitter that increases Arecibo's power by 20 times
