Material & Space: Synthesis Strategies based on Evolutionary Developmental Biology
A material system can be defined as a set of self-organized materials, defining a certain spatial arrangement. In architecture, this material arrangement acts as a threshold for space, though space often only appears as a by-product of the material organization. Treating space as a resulting, therefore secondary, independent product minimizes the capacity to generate architecture that is astutely aware of concerns of functionality, environment and energy. An effective arrangement of material can
Extreme ultraviolet variability experiment (EUVE)
The Extreme ultraviolet Variability Experiment (EVE), part of the NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) mission, was launched on 11 February 2010. EVE is one of three instrument suites on the SDO and will measure "Solar extreme ultraviolet (EUV) irradiance with unprecedented spectral resolution, temporal cadence, accuracy, and precision". The EVE program "will incorporate physics-based models of the Solar EUV irradiance to advance the understanding of Solar EUV irradiance variations based on the
Incorporating oral history into the K-12 curriculum
Oral history techniques for use with students at all levels, from kindergarten through high school.
This lecture will argue that examining what seems to be a very straightforward question - what is temperature and how can we measure it? - reveals surprising insights into the nature of science and of scientific authority.
A Hundred Years of Relativity: what remains controversial for the philosopher?
Professor Brown will reappraise the reality and origins of the relativistic phenomena of length contraction and time, arguing that the reason why rods and clocks 'measure' the geometry of space-time is often misunderstood.
