New images from the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) reveal stunning details of our Sun, including the dark, contorted center of an evolving sunspot that is nearly twice the diameter of the Earth.
A new image analysis technique makes finding important biological molecules—including tell-tale signs of disease—and learning how they interact in living organisms much faster and far less expensive. Called Hyper-Spectral ...
The accuracy of a smartphone app called GelApp, designed by A*STAR scientists to help analyze biomedical samples, has been greatly enhanced by the addition of a cutting-edge image processing algorithm.
Computer scientists at the University of California San Diego have released a new version of a software system that processes images from the world's coral reefs anywhere between 10 to 100 times faster than processing the ...
From the most powerful telescope orbiting Mars comes a new view of Earth and its moon, showing continent-size detail on the planet and the relative size of the moon.

Svalbard has experienced an unusually mild and rainy autumn and this has taken its toe on the vulnerable arctic Svalbard-nature.
Noise originating from the coherent nature of laser light is the scourge of digital holography, reducing the quality of holographic images below that of conventional photographs. Now, Pasquale Memmolo of ISASI-CNR and collaborators ...
NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite flew over the South China Sea and captured a visible image of Tropical Storm Nock-ten elongating as it continued getting weaker from wind shear.
