This video explains linear perspective and geometry when shooting portraits

Remember the animation showing how focal length impacts the portrait? When you shoot with different focal lengths and your subject takes the same space in the frame, you’ll get a certain amount of distortion. As a matter of fact, this is one of the reasons why camera “adds ten pounds”. Show More Summary

Protostar displays a strange geometry

Using observations of molecules in the protostar L1527 taken by the ALMA observatory in northern Chile, a group of researchers have uncovered new clues to understanding how dust in a collapsing molecular cloud can shed angular momentum and penetrate beyond an area known as the 'centrifugal barrier' to find its way to the surface of the forming star.

How Geometry Can Help Visualize Spacetime and How Causality, Distance, and Time Are Related

3 weeks agoHumor / odd : Laughing Squid

PBS Space Time host Matt O’Dowd demonstrates how geometry can help visualize spacetime and explains how causality, distance, and time are related. In this episode we dive deeper into the relationship between space and time and explore how we can geometrically map the causality of the universe and increase our understanding of how time and […]
