Possible location of Atlantis Featured 2 Feb 2004 Print

Possible location of Atlantis

Possible Atlantis. Computer-generated map of a proposed location of the mythical city of Atlantis on Spartel Island in the Strait of Gibraltar. The Strait connects the Atlantic Ocean (left) to the Mediterranean Sea (right), and separates Spain in Europe (top) from Morocco in Africa (bottom). The red circles mark Gibraltar (upper right), Tangier (lower left), and Spartel Island (centre left). The island is now about 100 metres below sea level, but during the last ice age it would have been above sea level and may have been inhabited. Rising sea levels at the end of the ice age may have destroyed the island civilisation, leading to the myth of Atlantis sinking beneath the waves

False-colour SEM of stylus in groove of LP record Featured 2 Feb 2004 Print

False-colour SEM of stylus in groove of LP record

False-colour scanning electron micrograph of a diamond stylus travelling through the grooves of a long-playing, stereo record. The grooves are cut into a flat disc of polyvinyl chloride. The groove varies with the intensity of the music: the straighter the groove the quieter the music, the wavier the groove (as here) the louder the music. The stylus picks up the music modulation from the sloping sides & transmits it to the cartridge, where a piezoelectric crystal or an electromagnet converts the vibration into an electrical signal. Although thoroughly cleaned, this needle is encrusted with dirt. Magnification: x30 at 35mm size, x50 at 6x4.5cm size. Purple & yellow stylus on red record. Reference: MICROCOSMOS, figure 9.16, page 182
