Walk Around In A 3D Splendid House From The Ancient Pompeii

By combining traditional archaeology with 3D technology, researchers at Lund University in Sweden have managed to reconstruct a house in Pompeii to its original state before the volcano eruption of Mount Vesuvius thousands of years ago. Unique video material has now been produced, showing their creation of a 3D model of an entire block of houses.

When Vega is North

In only about 12,000 years Vega will be the North Star, the closest bright star to our fair planet’s North Celestial Pole. By then, when you fix your camera to a tripod long exposures of the night sky will show the concentric arcs of star trails centered on a point near Vega as Earth rotates on its axis.

NASA GISS to Help Lead Search For Habitable Exoplanets

NASA announced this week the creation of the Nexus for Exoplanet Systems Science (NExSS) network that will study planets beyond our solar system for habitability and other features tapping the expertise of researchers at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), Goddard Space Flight Center and other locations.
