“Chaos and geomagnetic reversals" by Christophe Gissinger, Dept. of Astrophysical Sciences/ Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory.
Winner of Princeton’s 2011 Art of Science competition.
This image is a visualization of a model describing polarity reversals of the Earth’s magnetic field over time. From the Princeton site:
"This image shows a simple deterministic model illustrating the geomagnetic reversals. The model is based on the non-linear interaction between two magnetic modes (dipole and quadrupole) and one velocity component of the Earth’s core flow, and the image shows typical trajectories in the 3D phase space. The corresponding strange attractor reproduces irregular reversals between two symmetrical states."

"You one of those right wing nut outfits?" inquired the diplomatic Metzger.
Fallopian twinkled. "They accuse us of being paranoids."
"They?" inquired Metzger, twinkling also.
"Us?" asked Oedipa.

Mainly #art, #science, #history.
