NASA | Afterschool Universe: How Light Carries Information

This video shows a simple kinesthetic activity that demonstrates how all the information we obtain about objects in the universe is carried to us by light, and it takes time for light to travel to us from those objects. The amount of time it takes depends on how far away they are.

Adobe’s Photoshop is the gold standard when it comes to photo-editing software – the preferred tool for many graphic designers and photographers. But many of the complex features that once only a Photoshop pro could do, can now be achieved using basic, free software that comes with your computer or downloaded from the Web. Think cropping, resizing, color adjustments, filters, red-eye removal, and automatic enhancements.

We’ve found and tested a few online alternatives that won’t require you to fire up any photo-editing apps....
