How a Superchilled Telescope Will Look Back at the Dawn of the Universe | WIRED | Heron | Scoop.it
To see back in time, you need a massive telescope—one big enough to capture light from when the first galaxies were formed, 13.5 billion years ago. Astronomers are clamoring to see this light, so NASA is obliging them by building the James Webb Space Telescope. The Webb will operate 1 million miles from Earth in…

Julia Heisler's curator insight, November 19, 5:35 PM

This article depicts how engineers from San Antonio-based non-destructive examination firm IHI Southwest Technologies conducted the inspection of the tank floor using a combination of phased array ultra-sound, eddy current, laser scanning, and high resolution cameras. The robotic system was able to gather data requested by the site's engineering team needed to satisfy Nuclear Energy Institute requirements fro inspections of nuclear plant water storage tanks in accordance with NEI 09-14.This guideline describes the policy and practices that the industry commits to follow in managing underground piping and tanks. The robot was used to survey over 90% of the bottom of the 16.5 meter diameter tank, as well as visually examining the welds of each of its 36 floor plates, including where the 15.8 meter tall tank walls meet the floor. The tank examination carried out during the undisclosed reactor's recent outage, marks the first time that robotic examination has been used to satisfy NEI 09-14 requirements. This relates to international relations because nuclear power affect the entire international realm. The misuse especially but also the safety measures taken to secure no miscarriages.
