The Ordnance Survey is celebrating its 225th birthday by producing a map of modern London in 1801 cartographic style including, of course, numerous features not present two centuries ago - such as railways, the Blackwall Tunnel and the cable car across the Thames. Cartographer Chris Wesson has kept fonts, terminology and design as close to the orginal Ordnance Survey style as possible and copies of the full map due to go on sale in due course.
So the traverse is a tesseract (the comic book / movies type) at least? So, there is a "quake" and appears a new patch of land, and something like a drone does a survey and changes the map (so to speak?). So the inhabitants have to use something like a smartphone (call it a hailer) with gps?
Yeah, the Traverse is its own dimension outside of space and time, it’s also sentient! It occasionally changes its looks to fit a new style, which is an event called a State Shift. The entire city can change its layout and orientation so people are v. strongly suggested to acquire a Traverse Orb, sort of a catchall smartphone, computer, debit card, gps locator and map all in one.
Scientists have released the first of several dark matter maps of the cosmos.
Researchers from the Dark Energy Survey used data captured by the Dark Energy Camera, a 570-megapixel imaging device that they say is one of the world’s most powerful digital cameras, to put together the largest contiguous map of dark matter created.
Summary: Camila is the sweet, innocent, forever a virgin daughter of a farmer. G!P Lauren is her dad’s new farmhand and fuck buddy. They fuck all day and night. Every position, even Lauren with her hand over Camila’s mouth.
How astronomers see the Universe through our galaxy
“What we call “the Zone of Avoidance” isn’t, as we commonly present it, a nearby region with very few galaxies. Although we’ve seen very few galaxies, in reality it’s most probably a region with just as many galaxies as the rest of the Universe, that just happens to be hard to see from our vantage point!”
A view from Chile of Cosmic Expansion. The Dark Energy Survey will map an eighth of the sky at high resolution. One galaxy it has already imaged is NGC 1365, the Great Barred Spiral galaxy. It lies in the Fornax cluster, 56 million light-years away.
Two commanders dressed in the summer camouflage smocks survey a map in their Volkswagen Schwimmwagen. This vehicle was an amphibious car used extensively by both the Heer and the Waffen-SS during the war. The nearest man is decorated with the Ritterkreuz (Knight’s Cross).
The Río Bec site was first mentioned by AustrianexplorerTeoberto Maler at the end of the 19th century, though he never visited the site. The French explorer Maurice de Perigny was the first European to visit and report on the Río Bec. The site is now being excavated and restored by a group of French archaeologists from the CNRS headed by Dominique Michelet. They have located several architectural groups and their surveys and maps of several square kilometers give us a better understanding of the ancient settlement. Excavation of the principal building at Río Bec A, a building with three towers and several rooms, is now underway.
The Rio Bec architectural style
Río Bec temple pyramids are located in the central Maya lowlands. The temple-pyramids are characterized by a unique architectural style that began to appear during the seventh century A.D. and continued into the early twelfth century A.D. The temple-pyramids consist of a range-type building with typically two nonfunctional solid masonry towers on both ends of the range-type building. The twin-towers narrow with ascension in order to give an illusion of greater height. The twin-towers appear to have stairs along their faces leading to the temple that rests atop them. However, the steps are only a design motif that creates the illusion of functional stairs. Even if the steps were functional, the towers rise at steep vertical angles that would make ascending them difficult. The temples, which are located on the platform at the top of the Río Bec towers are inoperative as well. The temples are solid masses with no interior rooms. Pseudo-doorways, which have been built into niches in the fronts of the temples, give the appearance of a functional door. Despite their nonfunctional components, the Río Bec towers hold the typical decorations of a pyramid and its upper temple and at first glance are taken as functional pyramids. The purpose of the Río Bec temple-pyramids is unknown, but they do resemble the twin-tower complexes of Tikal.
