Total eclipse of the Moon in October 1996 Featured 13 Aug 2004 Print

Total eclipse of the Moon in October 1996

Lunar eclipse. Total eclipse of the Moon, a phenomenon caused when the Moon enters the shadow cast by the Earth. This image shows the first moments after the totality phase: the bright portion at upper left is just emerging from the shadow of the Earth. During totality the Moon does not generally disappear. It is still visible due to the sunlight refracted onto its surface by the Earth's atmosphere. The colour of the lunar disc during an eclipse depends on the amount of dust and volcanic ash present in the atmosphere of the Earth. This is because these particles scatter blue light, making the sunlight appear red. Photograph taken in October 1996 in the USA

View of Frederic Joliot-Curie

Frederic Joliot-Curie, French physicist, born in Paris on March 19th, 1900, died in Paris on August 14th, 1958. Joliot obtained a degree in engineering & in 1925 became assistant to Marie Curie, marrying her daughter Irene in 1926 when they began working together on radioactivity as the Curies had done before them. In 1934, they were rewarded with the discovery of "artificial radioactivity" in an isotope of phosphorus, which earned them the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1935. Joliot-Curie's subsequent work on nuclear chain reactions, interrupted by wartime resistance activities, led to the development of an independent French nuclear capability
