It was amazing to pay a visit to @cern robotics team. This is TIM the robot patrolling the 27-km tunnel of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) accelerator. TIM is a mini vehicle transporting a set of instruments along tracks suspended from the tunnel’s ceiling. This smart machine is used for real-time monitoring while the LHC is operating, humans can’t operate for the high radiation levels on the site. #cern#future#materia#science#robot
CERN, Switzerland. Today I’m coming back to one of my favorite places on earth, where thousands of scientists from all over the world are searching the basic rules of the Universe. I’ll keep posting from here in the next days. #cern#universe#science#materia#experiment
I’m happy to share that I won the 1st Place in the Landscape category with ‘White Gold’ at World Photography Organization @worldphotoorg
Rarely has a material so inclined to stay put been wrenched so insistently out of place and carried so far from its source. In Italy’s most marble-rich area, known as the Apuan Alps, the abundance is surreal. Hundreds of quarries have operated there since the days of ancient Rome and Michelangelo sculpted most of his statues from this stone. Now the trade is booming due to the demand from Saudi Arabia and other gulf states. The photographs of this area's majestic quarries reveal an isolated world; beautiful, bizarre and severe. It is a self-contained universe of white; simultaneously industrial and natural. #anthropocene#quarries#marble#landscape#rocks#carrara
For @natgeo I’ve been to the south of Spain to meet Joelia and Jaime, asteroids hunter. Here is how they survey the sky every night.
These 3 Telescopes, in the south of Spain, work alone in the mountain under a non-stoping stop moving and shooting loop commanded from 40 kilometers away, a stressing and intense robotic mode of operation.
They collect around 50.000 images of the sky every night.
Those images contain stars and also distant galaxies and nebulas, but much closer asteroids and satellites too.
The story ‘They Are Watching You’ — is now online: https://www.nationalgeographic.com/magazine/2018/02/surveillance-watching-you/ #future#asteroid#telescope#survey#earth#timelapse#night#stars#deimos
Jaime is an asteroid hunter in south of Spain. With his team there, he discovered more than 3000 numbered asteroids of our Solar System, several of them belonging to this near to Earth dangerous family. Among those, 2012 DA14, named "Duende", the closest to Earth flyby of an asteroid with potential threat by its size registered so far. ‘We are watching you is out’ on @natgeo this month. #future#asteroid#meteorites #
One of the biggest lettuce grower in the world using the Dutch high tech agro farming technology where compare to traditional farming, 90% less of water is used and up to 10 times the amount of lettuce is grown with the same land. No pesticides are required. This futuristic way of farming it might be the best solution to front the hunger crisis in a the next decades. #netherlands#agriculture#farming#future#greenhouse#lettuce#hunger#led
I was at the ESA. European Space Agency. ESA's programmes are designed to find out more about Earth, its immediate space environment, our Solar System and the Universe. #space#esa#satellite
Chicken poultry facility in the Netherlands. The most advanced technology is used here in order to grow chicken without the use of any medicine. Global meat production and consumption have increased rapidly in recent decades, with harmful effects on the environment and public health as well as on the economy, according to research done by Worldwatch Institute. #chicken#farming#future#health#poultry#netherlands#meat#hunger#famine
