Artwork of the stages in human evolution Featured 9 Jul 2002 Print

Artwork of the stages in human evolution

Human evolution. Illustration showing stages in the evolution of humans. At left, proconsul (23-15 million years ago) is depicted hypothetically as an African ape with both primitive and advanced features. From it Australopithecus afarensis (>4- 2.5 Myr BP) evolved and displayed a bipedal, upright gait walking on two legs. Homo habilis (2.5 Myr BP) was truly human ("homo") resembling Australopithecus but also used stone tools. About 1.5 Myr BP Homo erectus (at centre) appeared in Africa, used fire, wooden tools, and migrated from Africa into Eurasia. Homo neanderthalensis (200, 000 years BP) lived in Europe and Middle East and was closely related to modern humans (right)

Computer artwork of the constellation of Gemini Featured 9 Jul 2002 Print

Computer artwork of the constellation of Gemini

Gemini. Computer artwork of the constellation of Gemini, the Twins, with a red line showing its shape in the sky. The grey areas are the star clouds of the Milky Way. Gemini is the third of the twelve constellations or signs of the Zodiac. The twins are the two brightest stars in the lower right of the constellation, with Pollux above and to the right of Castor. In Roman mythology they were the sons of Leda the Swan; born of the same egg. They were placed in the heavens because of their brotherly love, although they represent the opposing principles of war (Castor) and peace (Pollux). They were also the guardians of Rome and its sailors

Phase change material, SEM Featured 9 Jul 2002 Print

Phase change material, SEM

Phase change material. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of microcapsules (blue) that contain a phase change material (PCM) coating fabric fibres. The PCM can absorb and release heat generated by a person wearing the fabric, warming or cooling it as required. If the wearer's body temperature rises after exercise, the PCM absorbs the heat and melts, preventing heat reflecting back onto the body. If the wearer's temperature then falls, the PCM refreezes, releasing its absorbed heat and warming the garment. The PCM can undergo this melting/refreezing cycle almost indefinitely. PCMs are being developed by Outlast Technologies, USA. Magnification unknown
