Flower of the chickweed Featured January Print

Flower of the chickweed

False-colour scanning electron micrograph of the flower of common chickweed, Stellaria media, a self- pollinating plant found on uncultivated ground in Europe. In the background are the five sepals or calyx (green), which serve a protective function. Next are the 5 notched petals or corolla (yellow), which attract insects by their bright colour. Calyx & corolla together form the perianth. Three stamens topped by pollen-bearing anthers (male organs) lie between the petals & the capsule. At centre are the tufts of the stigmas (female organs) supported on stalks called styles. These connect the pollen-receiving stigmas with the ovary. Magnification: x5 at 6x4.5cm size

ERS-1 satellite in orbit over earth Featured January Print

ERS-1 satellite in orbit over earth

Artist's impression of the European Remote-sensing Satellite (ERS-1) in orbit over the south pole. Due for launch in April 1991, ERS-1 is equipped with all-weather microwave and radar instruments which will be used primarily to study coastal, ocean and polar ice processes. The picture shows ERS-1's solar panels at right and its long Synthetic Aperture Radar antenna facing the Earth. ERS-1 will play a major role in international satellite investigations into climate change, the so-called "Mission to Planet Earth". It will map ocean waves, currents and tides; global sea- surface temperatures and winds; ocean floor topography and sea ice distribution
