Rubin, who died in 2016, once mentored fellow aspiring female astronomers and advocated for women in science. It’s fitting that the first national US observatory named for a female astronomer is in her honor. Rubin, considered to be one of the most influential female astronomers, provided some of the first evidence that dark matter — […]
“The data will improve our knowledge of how galaxies have evolved over time and will let us test our models of dark matter and dark energy more deeply and precisely than ever. The observatory will be… for a broad range of science—from detailed studies of our solar system to… faraway objects toward the edge of […]
The goal of the camera is to drive unprecedented astrophysics research and help scientists understand how galaxies have evolved over time. The data collected will feed into the Rubin Observatory Legacy Survey of Space and Time(LSST)- a collection of galaxies and motions of astrophysical objects.
The telescope-camera, once complete, is destined for the Rubin Observatory in Chile, where it will periodically take panoramic images of the complete southern sky for a decade. Its data will feed into the Rubin Observatory Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST) – a catalog containing more galaxies than there are living people on Earth.
Sony has proven to be a camera brand that’s not afraid to experiment and push ahead on new innovations. The initiator of the full-frame mirrorless craze, as well as innovations like stacked sensors and class-leading autofocus tracking technology, Sony was the first to launch several features that are now becoming widespread.
Before the end of the year, the series will launch a completely new cinema camera, the FX6. Sony says that the new camera will “appeal to a wider spectrum of visual creators,” but offers little specifics and no technical specifications for the camera. What genres will be targeted in those wider demographics? Does the camera […]
The newly released images are part of extensive, ongoing tests designed to vet the focal plane, which has not yet been installed on the LSST Camera. That integration step will happen in the next few months, as will the addition of the camera’s lenses and other key components, if all goes according to plan.
It also follows an interesting trend from Canon, or its Canon Marketing Japan subsidiary, of testing concepts with limited edition crowdfunding campaigns. Its first foray into crowdfunded cameras was the Canon Ivy Rec in 2019, which is a carabiner-style camera that’s an interesting new take on the action cam.
With television actor Vipul Roy as narrator, the 60-minute show includes eight acts; jugglers, trapeze artistes, acrobats performing stunts, interludes by a clown and a customised grand finale where artistes pay a tribute to COVID-19 warriors. The host also takes the audience through the evolution of Rambo Circus, memories of one’s childhood experience at a […]
The Sony PS5 is powered by an 8-core AMD Zen 2 CPU and a custom AMD GPU based on RDNA 2 architecture. The custom AMD chip will feature 10.28 teraflops of power using variable frequencies on both the CPU and GPU. Sony has taken a bit of a different approach with its proprietary SSD solution […]
