I find this indescribably beautiful.
Someone once asked J.B.S. Haldane, a famous British geneticist/biologist what a lifetime of studying biology had taught him about the preferences of God, should there be one. He answered, "He has an inordinate fondness for beetles". I would say "inordinate fondness for partial differential equations"
The circulation patterns here put Jupiter's atmosphere to shame. Watch it in full screen, 1080P.
Reminds me a little of "Starry, Starry Night".ReplyDelete
It does, but Van Gogh had hallucinations. NASA had a satellite. ;)Delete
With their stand on global warming, I think NASA had hallucinations, too :-)ReplyDelete
In this case, I don't care what stand they take on anything, as long as I can see the beauty of this video! Thank you for posting it. I copied the link and sent it to my ex-bro-in-law, a retired Sea Capt. who lives in FL and is ecstatic and grateful! :) I have just added it to my blog, after seeing it on Bayou Renaissance Man last night. Came in here to thank you. Involved, huh?ReplyDelete
Involved, huh?Just a little.Delete
Thanks for stopping by and the kind words. Peter's blog (Bayou Renaissance Man) is one of my everyday "must read" stops.
