        Robert has had a long term special interest in astronomy, and space science since the 1970s, and most of these blog posts currently are about Mars and space exploration. He is the programmer for for Tune Smithy, Bounce Metronome, Virtual flower, Lissajous 3D, and Activity Timer. Robert trained as a mathematician originally and received a high first class honours degree in maths. Went on to study philosophy (second undergraduate degree completed with two years study instead of three, then to do post graduate research into set theory and foundations of mathematics. He then got involved in programming music after he invented a particular type of fractal tune based on self similar sloth canon sequences.

        • Trailer for the Emergence of Life, a Coursera MOOC course


          from Colleen Cook Added 22 1 0

          The Emergence of Life is an evolutionary biology course offered through the Coursera MOOC platform from the University of Illinois. The course first launched in July 2014 to over 21,000 participants from around the world. This ambitious course delves into the ground-breaking research of Dr. Carl Woese to frame our understanding of life on our planet, and features interviews with prominent evolutionary biologists from sites around the world. The scope and scale of this course was unparalleled in many ways. It required extensive research, data management, and scientific expertise in many fields. Since this course featured cutting-edge research, we often had to develop and produce original content to illustrate evolutionary concepts that have never been documented before. For more information, and to sign up- go to- https://www.coursera.org/course/emergenceoflife COLLABORATORS: The Emergence of Life was developed in collaboration with Dr. Bruce W. Fouke, the Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology, and NASA’s Astrobiology Institute for Universal Biology. _________________ Colleen Cook- Producer, Director, Videographer, & Lead Editor • Overseeing the development of 75 original, educational videos on everything from evolutionary theory and dinosaur hip structures to astrobiology and archaea. • Pedagogical design for video elements, script coordination, on-camera lectures and prominent guest interviews. • Lead Editor and post-production oversight of editing, graphic design elements, original scientific illustrations, advanced visualizations, sound editing and design, research/citations, and accessibility features. • Field recording & logistics on location in Svalbard (hazardous arctic conditions), Curaçao (underwater videography), Florida (volatile reptiles/wildlife), and Yellowstone National Park (extreme temperatures). • Studio production and video/sound recording in CITL-ATLAS Production Studios.

            TEASER for documentary "Not only starstuff" SPANISH VERSION: https://vimeo.com/122492517 Follow the filmmaking and news at: https://www.facebook.com/notonlystarstuff SYNOPSIS: After many years with a haunting phrase echoing in his head a scientist decides to take the camera and film a documentary. He wants to find a link between the stars that make up our universe and life on Earth. A personal adventure, a journey through some of the best research centers in the world looking for that amazing link with the rest of the Universe. We will find that the death of stars fills the space of small particles with incredible enegies that have the ability not only to change the life on our planet but also to create it in the cold and dark interstellar medium.

                    from Daniel Peluso Added 209 1 0

                    In 2009, the Kepler space telescope launched into space to search for planets orbiting stars outside of our solar system. These planets, called exoplanets, had no data to prove their existence until 20 years ago. Currently, because of exciting developments in astronomy, data shows that planets actually outnumber the estimated 200 billion stars in our galaxy. This 3D computer animation serves to highlight the importance of this cutting edge science. This short film, entitled, The Quest for Another Earth, spotlights the Allegheny Observatory where members of the research team, STEPUP (Survey of Transiting Extrasolar Planets at the University of Pittsburgh), actually perform astronomical observations of exoplanets. To ponder the wonders of the age old question of whether we are alone in the Universe, the animation also explores a recently discovered exoplanet, Kepler-186f, which is 500 light years from Earth and has been called an “Earth-cousin” by astronomers because of its similarity to Earth.
