Entstehung einer Windhose


In this amazing photomontage we get to see the evolution of a tornado that formed north of Minneola, Kansas on May 24, 2016. The photo is a composite of eight images shot in two sequences. According to photographer Jason Weingart, this prolific supercell went on to produce at least 12 tornadoes and at times had two and even three tornadoes on the ground at once.

This image was most recently awarded first place in the Wikimedia Commons 2018 Picture of the Year. The image was also a Jury’s Choice award winner in the 2017 Wiki Science Competition in the United States.

Sturm auf dem Saturn


It was one of the largest and longest lived storms ever recorded in our Solar System. First seen in late 2010, the above cloud formation in the northern hemisphere of Saturn started larger than the Earth and soon spread completely around the planet. The storm was tracked not only from Earth but from up close by the robotic Cassini spacecraft then orbiting Saturn. Pictured here in false colored infrared in February, orange colors indicate clouds deep in the atmosphere, while light colors highlight clouds higher up. The rings of Saturn are seen nearly edge-on as the thin blue horizontal line. The warped dark bands are the shadows of the rings cast onto the cloud tops by the Sun to the upper left. A source of radio noise from lightning, the intense storm was thought to relate to seasonal changes when spring emerges in the north of Saturn. After raging for over six months, the iconic storm circled the entire planet and then tried to absorb its own tail — which surprisingly caused it to fade away.

Corona – Sonification (7)

this is the complete genome of Covid-19 as a soundpoem.

(Danke für den Tipp, Aaron!)

So hört sich die Lunge dabei an. Konzert für Lunge.

Corona-Sonification (3)

Und noch eine auditive Darstellung der Ausbreitung.

Data Sonification regarding confirmed cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) spread around the world. The project was implemented using [Pure Data] for extracting and organizing the data from GitHub csv files, sending midi information to Logic Pro.

This project was developed for the Sonification and Sound Design subject of the Music, Communication, and Technology (MCT) master’s [cross-campus] program of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and the University of Oslo (UiO).

Corona-Sonification (2)

Hatte unlängst schon den Track, der aus der Gen-Sequenz des Virus gemacht wurde, hier nun eine Sonifikation der Ausbreitung – freilich nicht mehr auf dem neuesten Stand.

My goal with this video is to depict the spread of COVID-19 more viscerally. With sound, it’s easier to discern what a number like 3,000+ deaths actually means. It’s not just a four-digit number—it’s 3,000 families affected, 3,000 stories ended too soon, 3,000 universes vanished.

EDIT: The percentage listed underneath the red death count for each of the top five countries represents what percentage of the worlds active cases come specifically from that country. Sorry I didn’t make that clear… it was last minute addition I added just hours ago. :(
