Laser Beams Used to Create Filament Paths Could Potentially Direct Lightning

laser-lightning

Lasers beams have been used for the first time to trigger and divert lightning bolts. It was first postulated in the 1990s that lasers could be used to create a low-resistance pathway through the atmosphere, allowing lightning bolts to use the path of least resistance.

Lasers Mimic Supernova to Explain Cosmic Magnetic Fields

galaxy-magnetic-fields-mimic-laser

Scientists are using powerful lasers to mimic the effects of supernovae, which are helping to reveal how the magnetic fields of galaxies may have been formed in the early universe. All galaxies have magnetic fields, ones that might affect how fast stars are born, but it hasn’t been discovered where these magnetic fields come from.

Optogenetics Allows Light to Control Brains

optogenetics-brain

In order to search for better cures for neurological and psychiatric diseases, researchers have had to tackle the mammalian brain and its intricate complexity of tens of billions of intertwined neurons. Since neuroscientists have yet to grasp a deeper understanding of what the brain is really doing, it has been hypothesized that light could serve as a control tool in stimulating the circuitry of the brain.

Adaptive Optics Will Put Gemini Twin Telescopes at the Forefront of Astronomy Again

gemin-telescope-lasers-long-exposure

Together, the twin telescopes of the Gemini Observatory, which consists of two 8.1 m (27 ft) telescopes in Hawaii and Chile, provide almost complete coverage of both the northern and southern skies and have been lauded among the largest and most advanced optical and IR telescopes available to astronomers. However, in recent years, it has lagged in scientific productivity, as money was wasted on ambitious projects which never came to term. Last week at the American Astronomical Society in Austin, Texas, Frederic Chaffee, who was drafted out of retirement to become Gemini’s interim director less than a year ago, showed off results from new instruments.

Reflectius Art Lebedev Clock: 60 Mirrors + 1 Laser

When I first saw the Reflectius Clock by Art Lebedev, I thought that it was simply using reflections, but that’s not the whole story. This wild concept clock uses 60 mirrors and a single laser to display the time.

Laser Engraved Eee: Super Mario Goodness

012109_rg_engravedeee_01.jpgLaser-engraving is a great way to set your laptop apart from all of the rest. Laser-engraving can be done for a lot of different devices, from phones, to iPods, to PMPs. There is no denying the fact that they look great. The only problem is the cost and the fact that you’ll upgrade your device in a year or so and then you’ll have to do it all over again.
