Here is a picture of the Satellite get together held with Jupiter, 4 of her moons and our own. This rendezvous took place on Feb 19, and if you were in Melbourne or Hobart (or far enough south of Sydney) you would have seen an occulation of Jupiter by the Earth's Moon.

The photo was taken by Sebastian Juraszek with his Cannon 550D and a 200mm lens. at f/5.6, 1/4s, ISO 1600.

"Quite a sight with the clouds and the satellites." I agree Sebastian!

With Kickstart on the road 2013 in the organisation phase, I thought I'd have a quick look back at the KSOR aventure from 2012. Thanks to Dr Daniel Yardley for putting this together.

2012 was a year of firsts for Kickstart On the Road (KSOR). It was the first year that funding for KSOR has been provided by The University of Sydney’s Social Inclusion Unit (SIU), the first year that KSOR has been fully organised by Tom Gordon, organisation that included winning the SIU funding towards the end of 2011, and the first year that KSOR has ventured more than 1,000 km from the university, taking as many physics experiments as we could muster to Broken Hill in western NSW.

This weeks Pic of the week was taken in the year 1960! This was too good not to share. A lot has changed since then clearly, but surprisingly, there are also a few similarities!

I think it's great to see how packed the lab is! I'd love to know who some of these people are!

Superconductors and the Meissner effect. A truly wonderful and bizarre demonstartion that invokes all sorts of things like Quantum mechanics vs Classical Mechanics. This photo was taken at the University of Sydney Open day in 2012 by a young student named Jay Keyes. Thanks to jay for the photo and the permission.

Transformers use the ideas of electromagnetic induction to transform one voltage into another. The number of turns in the primary and secondary coils is the crucial point here.
