This image of an airgun pellet interacting with a water-filled balloon and captured in just 9-microseconds went viral after appearing on Cliff Pickover’s Reality Carnival site. With over 20,000 hits in a single day, this is the one image on my Flickr site that has created the most interest – by far.
Big day for me today – this is my first post on my new web site – the Scientific Artist.
My name is Greg Parker and I took early retirement from the University of Southampton in September 2010, where I was Professor of Photonics, that is anything and everything to do with photons.
I continue working with photons while I develop new imaging systems which will bring the wonders of the Natural World to your computer screen. The main technology I work with is photography, using different cameras for the different subjects, including DSLRs, custom-built cooled CCDs for astronomy, and video cameras. These imagers are in turn coupled to specialist optical systems, such as research microscopes, refracting and reflecting telescopes, and high-power macro-lenses to bring you images that cannot be seen by the naked eye.
Scientific Artist will show you the wonders of our Universe as if seen “Through God-Like Eyes”.
This site will develop rapidly over the next few months – please visit regularly to see how it progresses.
Web site created by Dave Parker of Invisage Design – nice job Dave 🙂
