As seen on #Cosmos: Ultraviolet Light Ultraviolet (UV) light has shorter wavelengths than visible light. Although UV waves are invisible to the human eye, some insects, such as bumblebees, can see them. This is similar to how a dog can hear the sound of a whistle just outside the hearing range of humans. The Sun is a source of the full spectrum of ultraviolet radiation, which is commonly subdivided into UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C. These are the classifications most often used in Earth sciences. UV-C rays are the most harmful and are almost completely absorbed by our atmosphere. UV-B rays are the harmful rays that cause sunburn. Exposure to UV-B rays increases the risk of DNA and other cellular damage in living organisms. Fortunately, about 95 percent UV-B rays are absorbed by ozone in the Earth's atmosphere. Seen here is a full-disk multiwavelength extreme ultraviolet image of the sun taken by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory on March 30, 2010. False colors trace different gas temperatures. Reds are relatively cool (about 60,000 Kelvin, or 107,540 F); blues and greens are hotter (greater than 1 million Kelvin, or 1,799,540 F).

Photo @pedromcbride. A dugout canoe on a calm #Amazon River, snaking through Peru on its 4000 mile march to the Atlantic — one of my most memorable journeys with the late writer Matt Power, a regular contributor to @natgeo #adventure. Matt tragically passed last month chasing the #Nile River in Uganda. To learn more about this gifted writer and soul and the dangers of #heatstroke, see Brad Wiener’s piece. http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2014-04-11/no-way-is-matt-power-gone @thephotosociety @natgeocreative

Las nebulosas ...

Las nebulosas ...<p>Numerosas culturas, entre ellas algunas de las más brillantes —como la maya, la griega y la india— han tejido historias fundacionales, arquetipos y mitologías en las que los dioses —y los hombres que de alguna manera alcanzan la divinidad, roban el fuego— se imprimen en el cosmos, se convierten en las estrellas, constelaciones y galaxias: como si eleveran su espíritu a la luz. Quedan tatuados en formas astrales, eternamente representando una historia arquetípica: persiguiendo a …
