Flying Over Spirit's Work Site
on: Jet Propulsion Laboratory
Images of the 'Columbia Hills' region inside Mars' Gusev Crater, taken by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment camera on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, provided detailed, three-dimensional information that was used to create this animation of a hypothetical flyover. NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit has been exploring this range of hills since 2004.

Maximum Likelihood Estimation for a Gene Regulatory Network Defined by Differential Equations
on:
Gene regulation may be described by a set of deterministic differential equations describing the time rate evolution of the gene product concentrations, and containing parameters accounting for the regulatory relationships occurring in the gene network. We will present maximum likelihood based estimators of the parameters arising in this formalism and we will prove that they have desirable properties. Our results may be applied to a gene regulation model yielding the early Drosophila segments formation relying on a statistical modelling of gene expression data obtained by confocal laser scanning microscopy. The proposed statistical model accounts for the uncertainty in the measurement of gene expression and the uncertainty in the time at which the measurements are performed.

Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics
Exploring New States of Matter in the p-Orbital Bands of Optical Lattices
on: Kavli Institute
In this talk, we will present new features of orbital physics in the p-orbital bands with bosons and fermions, which are not usually realized in solid state systems. These include quantum stripe ordering of orbital angular momentum moments in the triangular lattice, Wigner crystallization of neutral atoms in the flat band of the honeycomb lattice, and frustrated superfluidity with time-reversal symmetry breaking in the double-well lattice. Signatures of these new states in the time of flight experiments will be discussed.

The Pleasure of Finding Things Out

Speaker: Richard Feynman
Time: 50 minutes

Fifty minutes of PURE Feynman! This is the original Horizon Nova interview - essential for any Feynman fan... and for everyone else too!
THE PLEASURE OF FINDING THINGS OUT was filmed in 1981 and will delight and inspire anyone who would like to share something of the joys of scientific discovery. Feynman is a master storyteller, and his tales -- about childhood, Los Alamos, or how he won a Nobel Prize -- are a vivid and entertaining insight into the mind of a great scientist at work and play.
'The 1981 Feynman Horizon is the best science program I have ever seen. This is not just my opinion - it is also the opinion of many of the best scientists that I know who have seen the program... It should be mandatory viewing for all students whether they be science or arts students.' - Professor Sir Harry Kroto, Nobel Prize for Chemistry
