IMAGE (Imager for Magnetopause-to-Aurora Global Exploration) is a NASA Medium Explorers mission that studied the global response of the Earth's magnetosphere to changes in the solar wind. It was believed lost but as of August 2018 might be recoverable. It was launched March 25, 2000 by a Delta II rocket from Vandenberg AFB on a two-year mission. Almost six years later, it unexpectedly ceased operations in December 2005 during its extended mission and was declared lost. The spacecraft was part of NASA's Sun-Earth Connections Program, and during its run had over 400 research articles published in peer-reviewed journals using its data. It had special cameras that provided various breakthroughs in understanding the dynamics of plasma around the Earth. The Principal Investigator was Jim Burch of the Southwest Research Institute.
In January 2018, an amateur satellite tracker found it to be transmitting some signals back to Earth. NASA made attempts to communicate with the spacecraft and determine its payload status, but has had to track down and adapt old hardware and software to the current systems. On February 25, contact with IMAGE was again lost only to be reestablished on March 4, 2018. The signal disappeared once again on August 5, 2018. Recovery efforts are underway and if successful NASA may decide to fund a restarted mission.
First of all, Let me present some of the things I found from research. (considering convex lens)
Interpretation 1 => Focal length
is the distance from the center of the lens to the point where all rays converge.
Interpretation2 => Focal length
is the distance from the point of convergence to...
The focal length of a concave mirror is f=20 cm. It is directed towards the sun and the sun makes an angle= 1° at the pole of the mirror. What is the size of the image of the sun?
1/u +1/v =1/f .....(i) ,magnification= v/u= l2/l1 where l1 =size of the...
General question regarding how images are formed. As you move your eye "detector" around a illuminated room. The is image of lets say "a book" is in every position in the room at a given time correct--even before you "look" at it? The photons reflected off the book have formed an image of the...
The distance between an object and its upright image is 28.0 cm. If the magnification is 0.550, what is the focal length of the lens that is being used to form the image?
1/f = 1/so + 1/si
The Attempt at a Solution
See included image...
So,does a plane mirror(or a group of plane mirrors) ever form an inverted i.e. upside down image ?
According to my own understanding, no.
But in our home work this question was asked.
So, is it possible??
Currently I am generating an ID from an image by using K-Means to seperate brightness levels into 8 levels (clusters) and order them brightest to darkest. For each cluster I calculate:
1) Their center points as a percentage of image size (using average pixel coordinates)
2) Average distance of...
Mirror/camera/TV etc. don't have a complex visual cortex system/perception like our eyes. Human eyes use rod,cone,neuron and above all perception of brain to make image. How come these devices create the same clear images/scenes at their surfaces by themselves without having the advance...
I have drawn a diagram of the incident and reflected rays of an object by the concave mirror. Red color shows the incident rays, black color shows the normals drawn from the center of curvature, while green color shows the reflected rays. Shouldn't all the reflected rays meet at one point.
The focal length of the objective lens is 25 mm, that of the eyepiece lens is 73 mm , and the two lenses are 200 mm apart. The object is 30 mm away from the objective lens. What is the image distance relative to the eyepiece lens? What is the overall magnification of this...
I am a self-learner using textbooks. For example, I am using Spivak Calculus. I am working out a textbook problem in my notebook or I am writing down the intricacies of the proofs in the notebook. I have the Camscanner Android app in my mobile. I take photos of my working-out and edit it using...
I can't understand how eye actually works. From what I understand when I look at 2 objects of the same size The object that is further is smaller in the final image because light rays reflected from it take smaller surface at the retina (Here B is smaller than A because rays take less surface at...
Alright, so I programmed a fractal in emacs and used the terminal on my mac to compile it and it compiles and everything but it outputs the coordinates. I want to output a image from my fractal program so could you guys help me out with that? Any advice would be awesome
Hello everyone,I want to ask very basic question related to
multidimentional signals like an
image or a video signal.
Physically what is phase of an Image? Also what is its physical significance of phase compared to magnitude of an image?
I have heard many times that red lighting is good for imaging applications where the effect of ambient light needs to be reduced to a minimum. What is the theory behind this? Why does red light (vs. other colors) reduce the effect of ambient light?
I am trying to make a term for a function equipped on an image sensor.
The term is to express "the upper limit of fluctuation allowance in image size which is specified in %"
The value of percentage does not express the ratio of the enlarged image size compared to the original image size, so...
Well I hope it's not a thread that already is in the storage here. I want to understand the image of a matrix. not only calculating it but also why I'm doing that. Here are my questions:
1) They say d = Lx has a solution if d ∈ ImL. I know that the image of a matrix is calculated by Lx = x...
I'm interested in learning how to solve a relatively general sort of problem that comes up a lot in my problem sets and will presumably come up in future exams.
I'm asked to give an example of a matrix or linear transformation that has a given image or kernel.
Here are some examples...
