Perth, Australia (NASA, International Space Station, 03/22/13)
An Expedition 35 astronaut aboard the International Space Station photographed this image of the Perth, Australia area on March 22, 2013. The photo also features reef areas, Garden Island, Rockingham, and the Swan River estuary.
I can see my house from here! (actually I can’t, the image doesn’t go far enough east)
Watch this liquid boil and freeze at the same time! It’s not magic, these folks just dropped the pressure and temperature to the perfect place to hit the substance’s triple point, that magical nexus on the phase diagram where solid, liquid, and vapor coexist.
The liquid above is almost certainly not pure water (those crystals look a little funny), but here’s water’s phase diagram, complete with triple point and its various ice phases. Yes, even that one.
