Earthrise over Moon from Apollo 8 Featured 2008 Print

Earthrise over Moon from Apollo 8

Earthrise from the Moon. This photograph was taken during the Apollo 8 mission of 21-27 December 1968. The lunar horizon is about 570km from the spacecraft, whilst the Earth is 384,000km distant. In this view, the Earth is seen with the South Pole as the white patch at the left end of the terminator. Part of the west coast of Africa may be seen at the right end of the terminator, North and South America being hidden by cloud at the top of the disc. The lunar terrain in the foreground is near the eastern limb of the Moon, as viewed from Earth

Saturn silhouetted, Cassini image Featured 2008 Print

Saturn silhouetted, Cassini image

Saturn silhouetted. Cassini spacecraft image of Saturn and its ring system with the Sun directly behind. The view revealed two previously unknown rings. One, associated with the orbits of the moons Janus and Epimetheus, lies in between the outer edge of the bright main rings and the thin grey/brown G Ring. The other, associated with the orbit of the moon Pallene, lies just inside the broad and diffuse outer E ring. Earth is seen as a bright dot at the ten o'clock position between the bright main rings and the G Ring. This is a composite of 165 images taken at infrared, visible light and ultraviolet wavelengths by the Cassini spacecraft on 15th September 2006, while it was around 2.2 million kilometres from Saturn

Illustration of the anatomy of the human ear Featured 2008 Print

Illustration of the anatomy of the human ear

Illustration of the anatomy of the human ear. Sound waves are collected by the ear pinna (at left) and pass down an auditory canal to strike the eardrum (centre, white). Vibrations are trans- mitted via three tiny ear bones (malleus, incus & stapes) into fluid-filled structures of the inner ear (at centre right). Three coils of the semi- circular canals detect balance and body orien- tation. While in the cochlea (blue), tiny hair cells are sensitive to vibrations of the cochlear fluid and these activate nerves (yellow) which connect to the brain. Thus, a sense of hearing results from the conduction of sound waves through air, bone and fluid in the ear
