Light at 1-Trillion Frames/Second

That’s right, you are seeing light in slow motion! At this speed you can study the way light interacts and reflects off of surfaces and, as you can see, when it travels past the tomato onto the wall it seems like a ripple in a pond. This technology will even allow you to see around corners, like into a room or even inside the human body.

The gifs make it seem a little bit faster than the actual video so watch the TED talk video with Ramesh Raskar explaining what he calls “Femto-Photography”.

This is astounding. 

and notice how you can still see the tomato even after the light have passed it? That is because some of the light is still Inside it, bouncing around. most of it escapes pretty quickly which is why it is still visible, a second later it would be completely dark.

Is this a satellite shot of a country at night, lit up by glittering cities?
Or perhaps a collection of raving microbes, pulsing to a neon rhythm?
Nope, it’s a 600-billion-billion-kilometre-wide chunk of the universe – or at least a simulation of it.
Astronomers working on the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS) are attempting to map galaxies and hydrogen gas clouds in the universe by looking for the light of super-bright quasars, luminous objects that are thought to be powered by black holes devouring matter. Galaxies and gas clouds leave an imprint on this quasar light as it passes through them, which can be used to deduce their positions.
To make sense of these imprints, the BOSS team create simulations of quasar light passing though cosmos-spanning gas clouds and compare them with the real thing. The picture above shows a simulation of a cube of the universe 65 million light years across. The red blobs are clusters of galaxies, while the blue filaments show regions of low-density filled with clouds of gas.

“When women scream you wonder what’s wrong with them. When men yell you get afraid about what they’re going to do.”

A girl in my creative writing class said this in response to a story we read about witnessing intimate partner violence and it really fucked with my head because I’ve never, ever, ever, thought of it that way.

A new Fever Ray song titled The Wolf appears in the upcoming Red Riding Hood movie. Equally haunting as anything else Karin touches.
