Like all iron meteorites, this meteorite originated in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. Accompanied by a custom armature, this is a strapping example of the preeminent American meteor.” Oooh, it’s strapping! Like a hunky stable boy in a romance novel. Sold for $27,500.
A stunning tiny crystal of Calcite with inclusions of Mottramite.
Behold an expanding shell of debris called SNR 0519-69.0, left behind after a massive star exploded in the Large Magellanic Cloud: “Multimillion degree gas is seen in X-rays from Chandra, in blue. The outer edge of the explosion (red) and stars in the field of view are seen in visible light from the Hubble Space Telescope.”
Thermodynamics and P-V Diagrams
Paul Andersen explains how the First Law of Thermodynamics applies to an ideal gas in a piston. A pressure-volume graph can be used to determine the type of thermodynamic process. Included is a discussion of and P-V diagram for isothermal, isovolumetric, isobaric, and adiabatic process.
