Ever wanted X-ray specs or super-human vision? Look at the Milky Way and Universe in a range of wavelengths

Ever wanted X-ray specs or super-human vision? Look at the Milky Way and Universe in a range of wavelengths | Arts Worldwide | Scoop.it

Chromoscope shows you the view of the Universe that we get from Earth. The view is mostly dominated by our galaxy - The Milky Way - which is the band running horizontally across the middle. The direction of the centre of the Galaxy is, appropriately, in the centre of the screen. All the stars, and many of the nebulae you can see are also in the Milky Way. Some of the objects you can see in visible light are far beyond our own galaxy. With other types of light you can see objects far across the Universe and even see light that set off shortly after the Big Bang.

Le quinoa, bonheur des bobos, malheur des péruviens

Le quinoa, bonheur des bobos, malheur des péruviens | Arts Worldwide | Scoop.it
Plébiscité en France et en Europe, le quinoa est à la base l’aliment du pauvre des péruviens et boliviens. Son succès a fait flamber les prix. Pour le meilleur, et pour le pire.

Le narcissisme et la banalité des bobos parisiens font le malheur des travailleurs pauvres des pays en développement. Le problème est que ses snobs ne se rendent même pas compte de leurs méfaits !... Lamentable

The Vatican’s Gallery of Maps Comes Back to Life

The Vatican’s Gallery of Maps Comes Back to Life | Arts Worldwide | Scoop.it
In the 16th century, Pope Gregory assigned the monk and geographer Ignazio Danti to carry out the project. In turn, Danti hired several artistic stars of the day and up-and-comers as well to illustrate the maps, including Girolamo Muziano, Cesare Nebbia and the Flemish brothers Matthijs and Paul Bril. The Brils excelled at landscape paintings—an essential skill for the work.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, May 3, 2016 12:01 PM

This 4-year restoration project is a great cultural revival, but it also reveals the importance of geographic information.  The Vatican was a great medieval seat of both religious authority and political power.  This attracted prominent visitors from all over Europe and the map gallery served to convey geographic information about the Italian peninsula.

marcpauze's curator insight, August 13, 2013 8:36 PM

"Ridiculous? Perhaps. But the hard-core photographers who own a Leica swear by its craftsmanship, lens quality and lack of bells and whistles even as they acknowledge that their beloved camera gear is, well, not for everyone."


Yes you must have skills and knowledge of photography to play (and have fun) with it.
