Supernova in galaxy Featured 27 May 2005 Print

Supernova in galaxy

Supernova SN1994D. Hubble Space Telescope (HST) image of supernova SN1994D (lower left) in the galaxy NGC 4526. A supernova is the explosive death of a star. Its outer layers are thrown into space in a huge explosion, which can rival the brightness of an entire galaxy, as seen here. This was a Type 1a supernova, all of which have the same brightness. This allows their distance to be calculated by how bright they appear from Earth. NGC 4526 has a small, bright nucleus (centre) and thick bands of dust in its arms. This galaxy is part of the Virgo cluster of galaxies lying some 55 million light years from Earth

Coloured SEM of compact disc surface Featured 27 May 2005 Print

Coloured SEM of compact disc surface

Compact disc surface. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the surface of an audio compact disc (CD). The CD is made of aluminium with a transparent plastic coating. The metal disc underneath is etched by a laser beam producing the microscopic pits (coloured blue) which carry a digital code representing the sounds. The musical signal is capable of being read by a laser which is reflected at the etched surface. The thick layer of transparent plastic covering the reflective surface prevents dust and scratches from affecting the sound quality. A standard audio CD can store about 80 minutes of music. Magnification: x3, 100 at 6x7cm size. x7, 400 at 8x6ins, x3940 at 10x7cm master size
