Protocol DUNE in images
In order to explore some of the universe's greatest secrets, particulate matter scientists are developing and building high-tech detector systems. Besides the unbelievable sciences they enable, these experiences are often stunningly wonderful. The ProtoDUNE detector often appears as huge golden dice on photos. In these test benches, researchers evaluate the technology that will be used in the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment, the largest scientific research venture in the United States.
Under the direction of the US Department of Energy's Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, DUNE will be sending 800 nautical miles across the globe from Illinois to South Dakota. Here, about 1.5 kilometres below ground, the world' hugest ever constructed solid-state neutron-argon detector will analyse how these neutralos react. Scientists will use the information to explore some of the greatest unresolved secrets in the field of particulate mechanics, such as why material is present and what influence neutralos have had on the evolvement of the cosmos.
The DUNE is an internationally operating company with 1100 researchers and technicians from more than 30 nationalities. The DUNE is backed by donors from around the world, among them the DOE Office of Sciences. DUNE's prototypes are being built on the neutrinos stage at CERN, the European Centre for Nuclear Physics and home to another astonishing scientific engine, the Large Hadron Collider.
These two ProtoDUNE analyzers will help to complete the two different technology used for the four DUNE Far analyzers module filling 70,000 tonnes of molten Argon. Have a look at the design and development of the two prototype models in these 20 photos - and remember that each of the last DUNE detection units in South Dakota will be 20x larger.
Breathtaking blue dune found in the "Field of Dunes" on Mars
Wrongly dressed as RTL!? Wrongly dressed as RTL! Wrongly dressed as RTL! Wrongly dressed as RTL! Wrongly dressed as RTL! Wrongly dressed as RTL! NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) has found a breathtaking dune that shows that Mars is more than just a small giant planetary orbit. Sanddunes exist on the Mars Earth surfaces, especially in the craters.
At the foot of the Lyot crater there is a " dune array ". A NASA news report says that a dune is made of fine materials and/or has a different texture than the grayish dune area. In 2005, NASA started MRO in outer-space to study the story of Mars waters.
Taking photos on a regular basis, she broadcasts breathtakingly colourful pictures from the Mars face to Planet Earth. It uses a high-performance telecommunication system or the "interplanetary Internet", as NASA called it, to transmit the high-resolution pictures to NASA. The NASA is obliged to publish the pictures and to publish them on Flickr.
These pictures show a varied but seemingly dead scenery. Featuring improved colour, spectators can see red, yellow, blue and purple as well as a wide range of different geometric forms on the face of the earth. The weather, sky, clouds, wind, impact of asteroids, dusty monsters, windstorms and even the dynamics of the planets transform the landscapes into interesting forms.
Mars has an average of minus 80° Celsius with an average of 100 times less than that of the world. On Mars, the sanddunes are "classic Barchan" or crescent-shaped dune. Sanddunes of Barkhan are not so widespread on our planet, but have a similar shape. lf the winds blow only in one way, they form a mass of sands.
On one side of the heap the sands fall down and form a crisp peak to the dune. Per default the side of the dune is precipitous, but the back side is not. Currently there is a powder tornado on Mars that blocks the sun' rays with the help of reddish powder. It is not clear whether the Mars robot "Opportunity", which is solar-powered, escaped the hurricane because planet Earth dropped out of touch.
