Cachectic: Having cachexia, physical wasting with loss of weight and muscle mass due to disease. Patients with advanced cancer, AIDS, and some other major chronic progressive diseases may appear cachectic.
Robert Hodgin from Flight404 created these [and more] videos, which we think are pretty ill.
I have been working on Flight404.com since the late 90a€™s. It started out as a crazy Flash portfolio site but now is entirely focused on showcasing the work I have been making with Processing.
For work, well, my job kinda rules. I am a founding partner of the Barbarian Group and head up the San Francisco office. I get to spend all day creating with code. Fairly fantastic.
It’s Monday! Time for a documentary.http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-3544551191273174881
This is a siiick website, that should be peeped by all. Basically, the page shows an image of the cosmos as compiled from the Hubble Space Telescope - and let’s you navigate around, viewing 10,000 different galaxies. Even the ’emptiest’ parts of the image are populated with multiple galaxies, showing just how much is going on in the observable universe. Craziness.
The Ultra Deep Field obtained by the Hubble Space Telescope is the deepest view into the sky by humankind to date. This image combines 800 frames with a total exposure time of 1 million seconds. The 10.000 galaxies that are visible have distances out to times where the universe was just 800 million years old, one seventeenth of its current age.
Since the 1990s, we have found hundreds of worldsa€" exoplanetsa€"orbiting other stars. This Cribsheet explains three ways astronomers can measure a star’s light over time to infer the presence of exoplanets. It also discusses "habitable zones," regions of space around a star where life as we know it can exist, and tracks our progress in the search for other Earth-like planets.
