Powers of Ten: a dramatic representation of our place in the universe

"Powers of Ten takes us on an adventure in magnitudes. Starting at a picnic by the lakeside in Chicago, this famous film transports us to the outer edges of the universe. Every ten seconds we view the starting point from ten times farther out until our own galaxy is visible only a s a speck of light among many others. Returning to Earth with breathtaking speed, we move inward– into the hand of the sleeping picnicker– with ten times more magnification every ten seconds. Our journey ends inside a proton of a carbon atom within a DNA molecule in a white blood cell."

Jellyfish Protein: Rollable Displays

Kimberly Patch, Technology Research New
A group of researchers is working with a fluorescent protein, or chromophore found in jellyfish in order to create better materials for LEDs. [...]The jellyfish protein is a cleverly put together molecule, said Mark Thompson, a chemistry professor at the University of Southern California. "The structure of the protein itself is a barrel like structure and the middle of the barrel is the emitter."Because the part of the molecule that emits light is contained within the base molecule of the protein, changing the molecule in order to tune the color doesn't affect the emitter, said Thompson. "The thing that's neat about it is what were doing to tune color is just adding appendages to the outside the molecule. We can go through the whole visible spectrum with the same core –– the same central part of the molecule," he said.
