The impact of comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 with Jupiter Featured 9 Apr 2003 Print

The impact of comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 with Jupiter

Comet Shoemaker-Levy/Jupiter collision. Infrared image (2.12 microns) of the impact sites (from left to right) of fragments A, E, F, H, D and G of comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 with Jupiter. They are seen as bright patches in the bottom part of the Jovian disc between the south polar region and the Great Red Spot (brightest patch at lower centre). Only four impact sites are here visible because fragments E/F and fragments D/G hit the planet in nearly the same place. The image was taken on July 20th 1994 at 04:20 GMT. Fragment A collided with Jupiter on July 16th 1994 at 19:54 GMT and fragment H on July 18th at 19:26 GMT

Bothriolepis prehistoric fish

Bothriolepis sp. fish in a lake in the Devonian period (408-360 million years ago), computer artwork. Bothriolepis sp. fish are amongst the earliest fish known. They had plates of armour over the front part of their bodies, but none on their tails. Fossils of Bothriolepis sp. fish have been found throughout the world in rocks from the middle and late Devonian period. They were mainly freshwater fish, but could tolerate sea water as well. They had two lungs, and could survive out of water for a time. They fed on algae and detritus at the sea or lake bed. This model is from the Devonian Sea Simulator, an interactive virtual reality model of Devonian marine life


Ginkgo leaf and berries Featured 9 Apr 2003 Print

Ginkgo leaf and berries

Ginkgo leaf and berries from the maidenhair tree (Ginkgo biloba). This two-lobed leaf is unique among trees in that it has no midrib and no network of veins. Instead, the venation consists of a constantly branching fan of veins from the base of the leaf. The leaves turn a golden yellow in autumn. This species of maidenhair tree is the only living representative of the ancient Ginkgoales (family Ginkgoaceae). Ginkgo biloba has separate male and female plants. The tree is adaptable to almost any climate, and from China it was successfully introduced into Europe early in the 18th century
