Diamond ring effect Featured 17 Nov 2004 Print

Diamond ring effect

Diamond ring effect seen during the total solar eclipse of 11th August 1999. This effect may be seen just before or after totality, when a tiny fragment of the solar disc seems to flare out for a few seconds. The solar corona is visible as a white halo around the disc of the Moon as it covers the Sun in the sky. The corona is part of the atmosphere of the Sun, usually obscured by glare from Sun's surface


Genetically-modified pollen grains Featured 17 Nov 2004 Print

Genetically-modified pollen grains

Genetically-modified pollen. Conceptual composite image of a coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of maize pollen grains (Zea mays) labelled with biohazard symbols. This may represent genetic modification, which alters the genes of a plant in order to confer desirable characteristics. For example, crop plants may be engineered to be resistant to certain pests or herbicides, or to increase their nutrient content. There is concern over the safety of foods that contain material from GM plants, as well as the possibility of contamination of non-GM crops. Magnification unknown


Giant squid Featured 17 Nov 2004 Print

Giant squid

Giant squid (Architeuthis sp.). This sea creature has been the focus of myths and legends for more than two thousand years. Although this cephalopd mollusc does exist, what little is known about it has come from dead specimens that have washed up on shore or captured in nets by fishermen. The giant squid is the largest invertebrate animal in the world and amongst the most complex. It is a deep-ocean dweller, living at depths of 300-600 metres. It is thought to grow to between 17 and 20 metres. An adult has never been seen alive, although it may be possible to capture juveniles and maintain them in an aquarium in order to learn more about this creature's biology and habits
