Look! In the Sky! It’s a cloud! It’s a number! It’s… the first 1000 digits of Pi?
On the afternoon of September 12, 2012, artist ISHKY, with Stamen Design, launched Pi in the Sky, a project that used skywriting to create quarter-mile tall digits at 10,000 feet over the San Francisco Bay Area. It took a team of five synchronized skywriters “equipped with dot-matrix technology” to create the first one-thousand numbers of the infinite order of pi (3.14159, etc.). The airplanes made a 100-mile loop around the Bay Area, which created a temporary piece that was 150 miles long. It was created as part of the 2012 ZERO1 Biennial.
There’s a Kickstarter for everything.
Beautiful. I LOVE your writing. (:
Thanks a lot. :$
I write short snippets more now than anything else… O__o
“I looked into your beautiful eyes and I smiled that mischievous smile that’s gotten us into more trouble than we’d care to count. And then I whispered the two words.
Just two words that made your eyes light up and a smile appear on your face. Two words that got your heart beating fast. Two words that carry with them, so much promise and hope and expectation that NOT listening to them would be the worst decision you could ever make.
Just two words that were going to change our lives forever.
And we ran.”
“I am a recent graphic design graduate, living in London, currently looking for work/internships, who also flirts with video and sound.
The attached image is a stil taken from a video I did for Nils Frahm & Ólafur Arnalds - a2 track. The track is a hazy slow building smouldering track, and I wanted a visual piece to compliment the music and vice-a-versa, that they may both serve each other. For the video I cast my mind back to an old chemistry set I had when younger and experimented with some milk, food colour, vinegar and a macro lens to create a visual piece to accompany the music. The video can be found here. ” - Michael Zoidis. Learn more about the artist here.

Molecular Torus Surrounds Black Hole

Explanation: Why do some black hole surroundings appear brighter than others? In the centers of active galaxies, supermassive black holes at least thousands of times the mass of our Sun dominate. Many, called Seyfert Type I, are very bright in visible light. Others, called Seyfert Type II, are rather dim. The difference might be caused by some black holes accreting much more matter than others. Alternatively, the black holes in the center of Seyfert Type II galaxies might be obscured by a surrounding torus. To help choose between these competing hypotheses, the nearby Seyfert II galaxy NGC 4388 has been observed in X-ray light recently by many recent Earth-orbiting X-ray observatories, including CGRO, SIGMA, BeppoSAX, INTEGRAL, Chandra, and XMM-Newton. Recent data from INTEGRAL and XMM-Newton have found that the X-ray flux in some X-ray colors varies rapidly, while flux in other X-ray colors is quite steady. The constant flux and apparent absorption of very specific X-ray colors by cool iron together give evidence that the central black hole in NGC 4388 is seen through a thick torus composed of molecular gas and dust.
