radushkevich & lukyanovich 1952 nanotube with sumio iijima part by oliver sin

20 Aug Science Art | Nanotube with Radushkevich & Lukyanovich in 1952 With Sumio Iijima

science art | acrylic, oil pastel on paper, 50X70cm


In 1952 a paper describing hollow graphitic carbon fibers appeared in the Soviet Journal of Physical Chemistry. The authors were Radushkevich and Lukyanovich.  Since then many scientists discusses similar growths of carbon fibers, but not until 1991 did it get into focus of thorough researches, when the Japanese Sumio Iijama “discovered” carbon nanotubes.  Carbon nanotubes are fullerenes: such entirely carbon-consisted molecules, which are hollow and take the shape of a sphere, ellipsoid or tube. Nanotubes have a long, hollow structure with walls of only one-atom-thick sheets of carbon. How these sheets are rolled at specific angles decide the main properties of the nanotubes, like whether it will be a metal or semiconductor. They can be single-walled (consisting of only one graphene sheet) or multi-walled. Carbon nanotubes have some very interesting properties. As already said, depending on their structures they can be metallic or semiconducting. They are very strong, have a high tensile strength, keep stability on high temperatures, and have a low density (1.3-1.4 g/cm3). Because of these properties it has a great potential in applications. Bulk nanotubes (unorganized fragments of nanotubes) are already used in polymers to improve their thermal, electrical and mechanical properties. Hybtonite carbon nanoepoxy is used for sports gear, wind turbines, and marine paints.

Planetary Resources Inc The Asteroid Mining Company by Oliver Sin

I made this science art picture about the Planetary Resources Inc. It’s company who started a revolution in the field asteroid mining. This alliance between scientists and billionaires will change the political construction of our society, because they will possess more resources from the space, than all other firms or governments can have in the next hundred years.

Space mining, asteroid mining – may sound even familiar, provided you know E.E. Smith’s Lensman series. Well, science-fiction may become real, as Planetary Resources announced that it’s going to mine outa space, so to say.

And why would they do that? Well, most of the precious metals and minerals on Earth derive from asteroid impacts, not to mention that their concentration in asteroids can be multiple hundred times higher than here on Earth. Modern technology and luxury craft uses gold, platinum, rhodium, iridium, ruthenium, and osmium – all which are rare and expensive. But what if we had a near infinite supply of them?

Yet, even of a greater value is the water these asteroids may contain. As boosting water into the space is very costly, it would reduce the cost of space missions by a lot if there was a space water-source. And from that water even hydrogen could be made, which is one component of the rocket fuel (the other is oxygen). So mining asteroids seems absolutely reasonable.

And that is what Planetary Resources thinks too. First they try to find the richest asteroids for mining with their Arkyd-100 space telescopes. Then, the promising candidates are examined by the Arkyd-200s. The swarm of Arkyd-300 series will finalize the selection taking complementary measurements. After that, the mining process can start. How? Well, it still needs some further research, but it is surely worth the efforts.

Sykes, David Vaskevitch, John K. Villa, John S. Lewis, Eric E. Schmidt, K. Ram Shriram, Charles Simonyi, Larry Page, Ross Perot.

17 Jun Science Art | Quantum Theory On Boots With Max Planck


science art | acrylics on boots

Quantum mechanics is a descriptive branch of physics dealing with the atomic and subatomic world, giving explanation of the dual particle-like and wave-like behaviour of energy and matter. Max Planck, a German theoretical physicist, is considered father or the Quantum Theory. Planck (April 23, 1858 – October 4, 1947) started to deal with the black-body radiation problem in the 1890’s. In 1859 Gustav Kirchoff raised the question “how does the intensity of the electromagnetic radiation emitted by a black body depend on the frequency of the radiation and the temperature of the body?” Planck’s answer was that energy can only be radiated and absorbed in discrete amounts called “quantas”, or E = hν where h is the Planck’s constant and ν is the frequency of the radiation. Planck’s quantum hypothesis was used later by Albert Einstein to explain the photoelectric effect.

This science art painting strated with an idea about the light that changes everything. How it reinvents objects, how it makes a perfect deception. Mostly we receive information throught vision from our world, so it is very important to know how it works for the everybody.

J. Robert Oppenheimer was an American theoretical physicist, director of the Manhattan Project which was a World War II. research program by the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada aimed to develop atomic weapons. In Manhattan Project he worked together with physicists like Edward Teller, Felix Bloch, Hans Bethe, and Emil Konopinski to calculate what and in what order it takes to build a fission bomb. After finding out that a gun-type fission bomb with plutonium is impossible to be made, they fully concentrated on uranium bombs and on 16 July, 1945, the first experimental explosion was made on a site near Los Alamos, which Oppenheimer called “Trinity”. In the World War II. on 6 August 1945 a gun-type bomb called “Little Boy” was dropped on Hiroshima, and on 9 August “Fat Man”, an implosion-type atomic bomb, on Nagasaki. Henry Truman awarded Oppenheimer the Medal of Merit in 1946 for his work in Los Alamos. After the war, however, he was closely investigated by the FBI and was accused of sympathizing with the Communists. In the post-war years he continued to teach and research. Among his notable achievements are the Born-Oppenheimer approximation and the Oppenheimer-Phillips process.
