Normal human brain, MRI scan Featured 15 Aug 2013 Print

Normal human brain, MRI scan

Brain. Coloured magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of a sagittal section through a patient's head showing a healthy human brain. The highly folded area (dark blue) is the cerebrum, which is responsible for conscious thought, emotion and voluntary movement. The blue arch beneath it is the corpus callosum, which facilitates communication between the hemispheres. At bottom right of the brain is the brainstem, which controls automatic functions, sleep and arousal and relays messages from the brain to the spinal cord (bottom centre). To its left is the cerebellum (branched), which controls muscle coordination and balance

Sea Wolf Missile Firing Featured 15 Aug 2013 Print

Sea Wolf Missile Firing

A Sea Wolf surface to air missile leaves the launcher onboard Type 23 frigate HMS Montrose during an exercise.
Seawolf is the shield of Britain's frigate fleet against air attack. In service for more than 30 years it has proven itself in battle in the Falklands and remains a potent weapon to this day.
Unlike Sea Viper and Sea Dart, Seawolf is intended to defend an individual ship rather than a task group, engaging aircraft or sea-skimming missiles. It is fired from a vertical silo on Type 23 frigates, and guided on to its target courtesy of a tracking system on the ship.
The original Seawolf had a very limited range of just six miles, but the frigate fleet is in the middle of receiving the latest, more potent version of the missile system. It means that Seawolf can track and destroy a target the size of a cricket ball travelling at three times the speed of sound well beyond the limit of the original missile.
If the system was placed in the middle of London, it could track its target over the M25 and knock it out of the sky over the North Circular - and the whole action would last under 20 seconds. Each Type 23 frigate carries out at least two Seawolf firings on ranges off the UK coast before each deployment
