Spiders web, SEM Featured 22 Oct 2003 Print

Spiders web, SEM

Spider's web. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of threads of spider's silk (yellow) encasing a woodlouse. Silk is produced from silk glands in the abdomen of the spider. Inside the glands the silk is in liquid- crystalline form, but as a thread of silk is squeezed out by the spinnerets the liquid hardens to the protein fibroin. Some spiders construct webs with which to catch prey. They may then wrap their prey in layers of silk to secure it to the web before feeding as seen here. Woodlice are small terrestrial crustaceans. A region of tough exoskeleton is seen. Magnification: x850 when printed 10cm wide

Subreflector of upgraded Arecibo radio telescope

Arecibo subreflector system. View of the 90-tonne dome housing the new gregorian subreflector system installed in 1997 for the Arecibo radio telescope. Note the people at upper right. 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 suspended 130 metres above the fixed dish. It can send and receive signals to examine planets & asteroids, & also analyse Earth's upper atmosphere. To scan the sky the dome is steered above the 305m dish. The Arecibo upgrade includes a 16m high buffer screen around the dish and a new radar transmitter that increases Arecibo's power by 20 times
