Window on Infinity: Pictures from Space | TIME.com | Space, place and time | Scoop.it

Satellites, balloon-borne instruments and ground-based devices make 30 million observations of the atmosphere each day. Yet these measurements still give an incomplete picture of the complex interactions within the membrane surrounding Earth. Enter climate models. NASA models and supercomputing have created a colorful new view of the way aerosols move through the atmosphere.

City, The : American Documentary Films, Inc. : Free Download & Streaming : Internet Archive

Documentary from 1939 contrasting life in industrial cities versus the seemingly bucolic life in a small village or town.  Plea for planning---Greenbelt and Radburn are featured.  This would be great for illustrating urban change over time as well as for history of planning.  Commentary provided by Lewis Mumford.

Where is the highest tide?

Where is the highest tide? | Space, place and time | Scoop.it

The highest tides in the world can be found in Canada at the Bay of Fundy, which separates New Brunswick from Nova Scotia.

At some times of the year the difference between high and low tide in this Bay is 16.3 meters (53.5 feet), taller than a three-story building.

Anchorage, Alaska, comes in at a close second with tidal ranges up to 12.2 meters (40 feet).

At increasing lattitudes (as one moves further from the equator and closer to the poles) there often is a dramatic increase in tidal range.

Tidal highs and lows depend on a lot of different factors. The shape and geometry of a coastline play a major role, as do the locations of the Sun and Moon. Storm systems at sea and on land also shift large quantities of water around and affect the tides. Detailed forecasts are available for high and low tides in all sea ports, but are specific to local conditions.

Centre for the Study of Existential Risk

Many scientists are concerned that developments in human technology may soon pose new, extinction-level risks to our species as a whole. Such dangers have been suggested from progress in AI, from developments in biotechnology and artificial life, from nanotechnology, and from possible extreme effects of anthropogenic climate change. The seriousness of these risks is difficult to assess, but that in itself seems a cause for concern, given how much is at stake.
