The Holloway Series in Poetry: Cole Swensen
New poetry from "One of the most assured voices in contemporary poetry"* With graduate poet Rachel Beck. Swensen's poetry is filled with delicate and precise illuminations. The ordinary things to which the poet turns her gaze are revealed to be astonishing, full of the withheld, or at least the under-observed. In her newest collection, The Glass Age (Alice James Books, 2006), she explores the perceptive space of the transparent-- of glass-- revealing, as John Ashbery puts it that "seeing is be

Great Zoom out of Sabie River, Africa (EOS Land Validation Site)
Using data from different spacecraft and some powerful computer technology, visualizers at the Goddard Space Flight Center present you with a collection of American cities in a way you have never seen them before. Starting with our camera high above the Earth, we rush in towards the surface at what would be an impossible speed for any known vehicle. Passing though layers of atmosphere, the colors of our destinations shimmer with their own unique characteristics, and suddenly we find ourselves fl
Carbon nanotube reinforced carbon nano composite fibrils by electro-spinning
Fibers of Polyacrylonitrile (PAN) are the precursor of 90% of produced carbon fibers. It is generally thought that the better the degree of molecular orientation in the original PAN fiber, the better the mechanical properties, in particular the modulus of the resultant fibers. Electro-spinning is a unique process in that it is able to produce polymer fibers having diameters ranging over seve ral orders of magnitude, from the micrometer range typical of conventional fibers down to the nanometer r
