“Theory of Everything”: A Stephen Hawking biopic  | Universere Today

Little was expected from Stephen Hawking, a bright but shiftless student of cosmology, given just two years to live following the diagnosis of a fatal illness at 21 years of age. He became galvanized, however, by the love of fellow Cambridge student, Jane Wilde, and he went on to be called the successor to Einstein, as well as a husband and father to their three children. Over the course of their marriage as Stephen’s body collapsed and his academic renown soared, fault lines were exposed that tested the lineaments of their relationship and dramatically altered the course of both of their lives.

Airglow on Cadillac

This image is a collaboration between Matt Pollock and Aaron Priest of Aaron Priest Photography. The pair teamed up to shoot the Milky Way over Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park. 

Matt and Aaron were able to capture both the Milky Way and a phenomenon known as air glow in this stunning image. So what exactly is airglow? 

Airglow is the result of excited atoms and molecules,at heights of approximately 50 miles (80km) and up. So, how does airglow differ from aurorae? Aurorae are also a result of excited atoms/molecules but the excitement is a result of particle collisions; whereas, airglow is a result of chemical excitation via solar radiation. 

To capture this shot, Matt and Aaron used: 
a Nikon D810 and a Nikon 10.5mm f/2.8 with shaved off lens hood
(crop sensor lens on a full frame camera)
Sky exposure: f/2.8, ISO 6400, 40 seconds.

Day 85: Today’s the day. Today we close the book on our journey. Tonight’s the last time I’ll ever wear the white and perform. Today has been a whirlwind of emotions and feelings, but I know that were beyond ready to go out and have an amazing final run. I can’t believe that the summer is almost over, and I’m beyond grateful to be able to call this corps my home and these people my phamily. For those who came before me, those here with me, and those who will follow, tonight is for you. SUTA #phantomregiment #finalsday #swanlake #ageout #dciphotoaday
