    The real Planck satellite is currently in space observing the Cosmic Microwave Background (the echo of the Big Bang), but you can make your own model of it. This handy time-lapse shows you just how to do it in a little over a minute. More information about Planck and to download the model go to: http://plancktelescope.org.uk

      The William Optics ZenithStar 66mm ED Triplet Refractor shot in HD 24p Cine with the Canon HV20. This project was a lot harder than I thought it would be. I need a lot more practice panning the camera free hand, still a bit unsteady. The music could have been timed a little better, I might try and reshoot this project.

        How do we know what the stars are made of when we've never been to one? Dr Andrew Steele shows us how to make a spectrometer, a device used by scientists to analyse light, using a cereal box and a CD.

            The seventh in a series of tutorial videos designed to teach planetarians (or anyone interested!) how to make high-quality planets using Steven Glanville's Anim8or, a free program available from anim8or.com/. In this tutorial we step back from animation and go back to texturing, by looking at application and purpose of bump maps, and a trick I use to get generic bump maps. Information in the next couple of tutorials are part of a build-up to making a detailed Earth, clouds, and planetary rings. Neptune and Moon textures (including bump map) are from from James Hastings-Trew's Planetary Pixel Emporium: planetpixelemporium.com/ .

              The sixth in a series of tutorial videos designed to teach planetarians (or anyone interested!) how to make high-quality planets using Steven Glanville's Anim8or, a free program available from anim8or.com/. In this tutorial we look at making orbits for moons and planets, and a couple of different methods, including easy synchronous orbits. Neptune texture is from from James Hastings-Trew's Planetary Pixel Emporium: planetpixelemporium.com/ . The formula for an orbit used in the video is as follows (except I changed the 200s to 150s): float $speed; $speed = PI/20.; $position = (200.*cos($speed*time), 0., -200.*sin($speed*time)); In this formula, the value by which pi is divided should be twice the amount of time you want it to take your object to cover 90 degrees of its orbit (so, in this example script, the object will take a total of 40 seconds to make one complete orbit). This formula only works at 30fps, if you change the frame rate, you will have to do some conversion work. I think it also only work correctly in the very latest preview for anim8or, as anim8or previously used 3 as a the value for PI, and only recently corrected that to 3.141... I think because of this you may have some bugginess as you try it out. By the way, here's a fun modification to try to give your orbit some tilt: float $speed; $speed = PI/20.; $position = (200.*cos($speed*time), 50.*cos($speed*time), -200.*sin($speed*time)); (on tilt, cos for X axis, sin for y axis). I imagine one could easily modify these to make relatively accurate ellipses too. Play around! I also bet that stuff like this could be a great way to show people the practical applications and purpose of trigonometry.

                      O vídeo time-lapse acima, não é somente mais um vídeo time-lapse, na verdade é um vídeo de extrema beleza que fará você ganhar cinco minutos do seu dia para ver essas imagens O projeto brasileiro com qualidade inédita “Mandacaru” relatou as circunstâncias para registrar o vídeo: “Saímos do Rio de Janeiro, bairro de Copacabana, em um fusca de ano 1994, com destino o sertão do Ceará”. “Foram mais de 2.700 km de ida, viajamos durante três dias, 900 km por dia, em média, 14 horas por dia de direção”. O Mandacaru também relata os problemas que tiveram durante sua viagem: “O primeiro problema ocorreu na Serra de Petrópolis, o motor do fusca parou”. “Não podíamos abortar nossa viagem!” Através de uma ligação e com todo o empenho e esforço possível, o motor voltou a funcionar e eles puderam continuar com sua missão. Chegando perto do destino eles dormiram em hotéis de beira de estrada durante a noite. Faltando 300 km para chegarem a Parambu, Ceará, eles perceberam que o motor do carro começou a trabalhar com apenas dois cilindros. “Foram os 300 km mais longos, demorados e sofridos de nossas vidas”. “Percorremos de fusca aproximadamente 2363.12 km para chegarmos em uma cidade, onde existem cinco moradores, ficamos no local mais de duas semanas, registrando imagens raras”. Chegando ao Sertão dos Inhamuns, onde a umidade do ar fica entre 33% e 45%, assim deixando a atmosfera com pouca umidade e a poluição do ar e a poluição luminosa no local é praticamente 0% ao redor de seus 63 km quadrados, assim eles acreditam que lá exista um dos melhores pontos de observação do Brasil Caso queiram saber toda essa história entre no FACEBOOK. https://www.facebook.com/CaravanaTimeLapse Deixamos aqui nossa aventura por um Brasil maravilhoso e sem fronteiras.
