Juno is only part way through its mission to Jupiter, and already we've seen some absolutely breathtaking images of the gas giant. On Monday, the Juno spacecraft will flyby Jupiter again. This will be the craft's 5th flyby of the gas giant, and it'll provide us with our latest dose of Jupiter science and images. The first 4 flybys have already exceeded our expectations. Juno will approach to within 4,400 km of Jupiter's cloud tops, and will travel at a speed of 207,600 km/h. During this time of closest approach, called a perijove, all of Juno's eight science instruments will be active, along with the JunoCam . The JunoCam is not exactly part of the science payload. It was included in the missions to help engage the public with the mission, and it appears to be doing that job well. The Junocam's targets have been partly chosen by the public , and NASA has invited anyone who cares to to download and process raw Junocam images .

The same can not be said for music of the black MIDI variety , which aims to pack as many notes into a short period of time as possible. To our ears, it's not as beautiful, but there's no accounting for taste. It's amazing what variations we're seeing in the last few years on the ancient piano roll technology . Of course, since piano rolls are essentially punch-cards for musical instruments, we shouldn't be too surprised that this is all possible. Indeed, we're a little bit surprised that new artistic possibilities are still around. Has anyone seen punch-card drawings that are executable code? Or physical piano rolls with playable images embedded in them? Filed under: musical hacks

There’s a lot of intuition when you're putting something complicated together like "Well, it feels right," or "It doesn't feel right." That's really hard to do so we found this amazing thing, which cut a ton of time out of our manufacturing process and now we have beautiful graphs of everything. We know exactly what things vibrate and which ones don't. You can use it on musical instruments. It's an amazing tool. Once you have one you realize how much you needed one in your life.” Bicycle inner tubes with holes in them "I came across bicycle inner tubes with holes in them through a friend who had made a sail boat that was attached only with these bicycle inner tubes —it was a catamaran. The reason why they’re so important is they are waterproof, they stretch, and you dont have to tie them in knots, so you can latch things together really quickly and then undo them, and make a new configuration.

The event was filmed and this footage was later incorporated into the assault on Las Vegas scene in Mars Attacks! 7. DANNY ELFMAN’S SCORE WAS A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO THE GOLDEN AGE OF SCI-FI CINEMA. Elfman—who’d provided the soundtrack for every previous Tim Burton film with the exception of Ed Wood (1994)—gave Mars Attacks! some decidedly old-school background music. “The goal was to invoke the ‘50s and that sci-fi sound that Tim and I both grew up on,” he told Vulture . To pull this off, he made liberal use of one of history’s first electronic instruments , the theremin. Invented by (and named after) Russian scientist Leon Theremin, it produces an eerie, humming wail. Throughout the 1950s, film composers embraced the aural gadget as a perfect mood-setter for science fiction and horror pictures. Due to its usage in such movies as The Day the Earth Stood Still and The Thing From Another World (both released in 1951), the public came to associate theremins with stories about extraterrestrial visitors.

The illustration of a Katzenklavier above dates from 1667, the one below from 1883. Kircher’s biographer John Glassie admits that, for all his undoubted brilliance, several of his “actual ideas today seem wildly off-base; if not simply bizarre” as well as “inadvertently amusing, right, wrong, half-right, half-baked, ridiculous….” You get the idea. He was an eccentric, not a psychopath. McNamee points to other, likely apocryphal, stories in which cats were supposedly used as instruments. Perhaps, cruel as it seems to us, the cat piano seemed no crueller in previous centuries than the way we taunt our cats today to make them perform for animated GIFs. But to the cats these distinctions are meaningless. From their point of view, there is no other way to describe the Katzenklavier than as a sinister, terrifying torture device, and those who might use it as monstrous villains.

Tenure All the above tax-saving instruments, by nature, are medium to long term products: From a three-year lock-in that comes with ELSS to a 15-year lock-in of PPF. Some like life insurance require annual payments to be made for a longer duration. Taxability of income Another important factor to consider is the post-tax return of the tax-saving investment. For instance, most fixed and assured returns products such as NSC provide you with Section 80C benefits, but the returns, currently 8 per cent (five-year) annually, are taxable. This makes the effective post-tax return equal to 5.52 per cent for the highest taxpayers. Considering the annual inflation of six per cent, the real return is almost zero! Of all the tax-saving tools, only PPF, EPF, ELSS and insurance plans enjoy the EEE status, i.e., the growth is tax-exempt during the three stages of investing, growth and withdrawal.

The digital theme is carried over for the instruments, too. Although the car retains Porsche’s trademark central analogue rev counter, either side of this is a seven-inch screen that’s customisable to show 4.6 Porsche is known for its sports cars , and even with its more refined models like the Panamera, it’ll outperform many rival brands. The car’s chassis is all-new, so the Panamera is more practical, but also more agile. There’s more aluminium used in the Panamera’s construction, so for its size it’s a relatively light car at 1,870kg. It sits on the VW Group’s new MSB platform for front-engined cars, which Porsche has been responsible for developing. The German manufacturer says this gives it “great versatility” as it means two different wheelbases (standard and long) can be produced, while “further body derivatives are also relatively easy to realise”.
