まるでゴッホの絵画のようだ。木星探査機ジュノーが撮影した木星の写真

top_e


 今年7月、2011年に打ち上げられたNASAの木星探査機ジュノーがおよそ5年間の旅を終えて木星の周回軌道に到達した。この旅の目的は木星の起源や進化を探るというものだ。

 ついにミステリアスな巨大ガス惑星に接近したジュノーは、ハイテクな観測装置がとらえた知られざる木星の姿を地球に届け始めた。

 その中には、あのゴッホの絵画のような大胆で荒々しい景色も含まれていた。

 従来のイメージを覆す力強い風景は、極端な気象現象がせめぎあう木星の厳しい環境を如実に伝えている。NASAが公開したその見事な画像を堪能してみよう。

Photographer Analyzes Brain Waves To Construct Portraits Of People’s Ideal Selves

Everyone wants to change at least one thing about themselves. No matter how many cheesy songs are written about embracing your imperfections, we all still catch ourselves occasionally thinking about our ideal appearances where all our “flaws” are corrected.

Photographer Scott Chasserot was able to bring a few people’s ideal selves to life through his project “Original Ideal,” which was described as a combination of “portrait photography and neuroscience” on his website. Chasserot took simple and unadorned head shots of his volunteers, then by using an editing software, he made dozens of altered versions based on the “scientifically established canons of beauty.”

By presenting the edited photos to the volunteers while they wore EEG headsets, Chasserot was able to analyze their brain waves and identify which version they preferred the most based on positive neural reactions. The preferred photo was then labeled as their “ideal” appearance.

“What do we find instinctively beautiful in the human face and how does this translate to self-image? What assumptions would we make about another person if we could see their ideal self-image? Original Ideal combines portrait photography and neuroscience to isolate the subjects’ ideal self image, a cerebrally sincere preference obtained by circumventing conscious thought.”

Famous Album Covers Brought Onto Their Original New York City Locations Where They Were Shot

Bob Egan’s hobby is really interesting. He brings classic albums to the present. He finds the actual location, where each cover was shot and alternates the angle and distance, so as the photo can match the current version of the venue.

At his website, PopSpots, Egan chronicles the detective work he does to find these places, providing multiple photos and maps that both show his process and help readers place the image within the city. While most of the covers (and other famous rock ‘n’ roll pictures) are from New York City, where Egan is a real estate agent, he’s also tracked Bob Dylan and The Who to London. See a few of our favorite PopShots photos below, and visit the site for a whole lot more.

Bob Dylan – cover for the album MODERN TIMES (2006). The shot is from the street next to the large silver globe on the north side of Columbus Circle where Central Park West hits the roundabout at 59th Street. The cover uses a Ted Kroner photo from 1947 entitled, “Taxi, New York, Night.”

Here’s the cover of ‘West Side Story’, the 1957 Leonard Bernstein musical, superimposed on the street as it looks tonight, tonight. It’s taken in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of New York.

The location for the cover of The Who’s soundtack to the 1979 documentary ‘The Kids Are Alright’ is 116th Street and Morningside Drive, Morningside Heights, New York City. The site is part of the Carl Schurz Monument.

Van Morrison fans can go for some backyard chicken at the site where the cover of ‘Too Long In Exile’ was shot outside 246 Pearl Street between Fulton Street and John Street.

The Velvet Underground’s ‘Live At Max’s Kansas City’ (1972) was shot at 213 Park Avenue South, east side between 17th and 18th Street, New York.

Bob Dylan was photographed on the front steps of 4 Gramercy Park West, New York City for the cover of ‘Highway 61 Revisted’ (1965).

The full story behind our sleuth’s discovery of the exact spot where the cover for Neil Young’s ‘After The Gold Rush’ was taken is well worth reading. If you’re in a rush: it’s the corner of Sullivan Street and West 3rd Street, Greenwich Village, New York.

This cover for ‘The New York Dolls’ (1973) by The New York Dolls was taken outside the Gem Spa at the southwest corner of St. Mark’s Place and 2nd Avenue.

You might have been to the location of the cover of Ramones’ ‘Rocket To Russia’ (1977) without knowing it. It was taken outside the back door of popular nocturnal haunt CBGB’S at the end of Extra Place, a small alley running north from East 1st Street between Bowery and Second Avenue.

KISS shot the cover to their 1975 album ‘Dressed To Kill’ on the southwest corner of 23rd Street and Eighth Avenue, looking north, New York.

This is another account worth reading in full. Egan found the exact site (at the Central Park entrance called Miners’ Gate) where the legendary pretzel vendor worked and starred on the front cover of Steely Dan’s ‘Pretzel Logic’.

 誰にだって恐怖を感じる対象があるものだ。蜘蛛が怖かったり、狭い空間が嫌だったり、高いビルの屋上にどうしても足を踏み出すことができない人もいる。

 だがそれが、日常生活に支障をきたすようであれば恐怖症である。恐怖のあまり尋常ではない行動に走る場合がある。

 アメリカ、ユタ州に住む80代の男性は、地球が滅びる日を異様に怖れ、国有地に自前のシェルターと小屋を建てて、30年以上もそこで生活していたという。

 このシェルターには、食料品から武器まですべて備えてある。
