We’re used to radiation being invisible. With a Geiger counter, it gets turned into audible clicks. What you see above, though, is radiation’s effects made visible in a cloud chamber. In the center hangs a chunk of radioactive uranium, spitting out alpha and beta particles. The chamber also has a reservoir of alcohol and a floor cooled to -40 degrees Celsius. This generates a supersaturated cloud of alcohol vapor. When the uranium spits out a particle, it zips through the vapor, colliding with atoms and ionizing them. Those now-charged ions serve as nuclei for the vapor, which condenses into droplets that reveal the path of the particle. The characteristics of the trails are distinct to the type of decay particle that created them. In fact, both the positron and muon were first discovered in cloud chambers!

If you never let them in, they can never leave.

who are afraid
of the sound
of their voices:
and your words
will scream from the page

(and you will be heard).

who have helped me
fall in love with words:
thank you for
sharing a piece of yourself
with the world.

that I will

without achieving
something great,

Since originally posting this, @littlechmura, the talented artist who created these images, let me know that she has a Tumblr blog in addition to her page on DeviantArt. (Be sure check it out by clicking on her name above. Her stuff is great!) And here is the original post of these drawings which were commissioned pieces:

you never hurt me,
not physically,
but I still felt the pain
in your words

and maybe there’s no
visible bruise on my skin
but surely there’s a
scar on my heart

following your heart is like
the sound of soft rain:
you can hear it best
when you close your eyes
and really listen.

So the sudden influx of Official art is because the FFXV team is at The Tokyo University of Arts as part of the University’s Animation to Game exhibition: FINAL FANTASY XV -The Creative Process- from July 21 to 30 (Closed on the 24). 

The free exhibition will be displaying models, graphics, proposals that the Dev team made during production of FFXV. They’re also offering mini classes during their time at the University which is currently all full. 

This person has already attended and advises to go in the mornings as it can get quite crowded in the afternoons.

stop waiting for him
to give you the world
when he hasn’t even
loaned you his heart.
