Auroras, Elsewhere

The earlier post regarding my intense planetary love for Saturn sent me down a rabbit hole of solar system pics. I was reminded that Earth is not the only planet that features beautiful auroras. Saturn, Jupiter, Neptune (whose auroras I couldn’t find an image of) and Uranus also display glowing polar lights. All these planets have magnetic fields, the key ingredient in the auroral recipe.

Auroras may even occur outside our own solar system.

Bonus mind-boggling GIF of Saturn’s auroras that was way to big to post above:

"To me, that’s the beauty of science: to know that you will never know everything, but you never stop wanting to, that when you learn something, for a second you feel crazy smart, and then stupid all over again as new questions come tumbling in. It’s an urge that never dies, a game that never ends."

Robert Krulwich of Radiolab takes a look at three books, each tackling the question of whether there are just some things we may never know.

Blow Out A Candle, Illuminate Your Mind

Featuring the stunning photos of Grover Schrayer, Kyle Hill shines light on a beauty you never knew existed: the waxbow.

The smoke that wafts from the just-extinguished wick of a candle is not mere ash and soot. It is a nearly-invisible cloud of vaporized droplets of wax. Head on over to But Not Simpler…to find out the physics behind this shimmering phenomenon.

A tidbit of wonder that’s been sitting under our noses, on our birthday cakes, this whole time. Keep your eyes open and your brains sharp … you never know when you’ll stumble on something amazing.

Fabian Oefner is a photographer who likes to make science visible, whether that is through visualizing sound waves with tiny crystals, creating nebulae-like images from lamps, or using a drill to photograph the movement of paint within a millisecond.

At TEDxWarwick, he spoke about his work, which includes the amazing photos of soap bubbles bursting seen above. From his talk:

What I do in my work is try to mix art and science together — whether it is an image of a soap bubble that is photographed at the very moment of its bursting, or whether it is strange liquids that form into pop-art-like structures, or if its acrylic paint that is modeled by centrifugal forces, I’m always trying to link art and science together.

We come across [things like magnetism and sound waves] in our daily lives quite often — and most of the time we don’t pay too much attention to them…I try to take these phenomena and show them in a poetic and in an unseen way and therefore invite you, the viewers, to stop for a moment and think about all the magic and the beauty that is constantly surrounding us.

See more of Fabian’s art at his website, and — below watch his entire talk, which includes some amazing demonstrations of visualized sound waves:

"Many adults are put off when youngsters pose scientific questions. Children ask why the sun is yellow, or what a dream is, or how deep you can dig a hole, or when is the world’s birthday, or why we have toes. Too many teachers and parents answer with irritation or ridicule, or quickly move on to something else. Why adults should pretend to omniscience before a five-year-old, I can’t for the life of me understand. What’s wrong with admitting that you don’t know? Children soon recognize that somehow this kind of question annoys many adults. A few more experiences like this, and another child has been lost to science. There are many better responses. If we have an idea of the answer, we could try to explain. If we don’t, we could go to the encyclopedia or the library. Or we might say to the child: “I don’t know the answer. Maybe no one knows. Maybe when you grow up, you’ll be the first to find out."
