Like last year I entered a team into UEFA Fantasy Football competition and got an ok start. Not as good as last year when I scored 54 points but 42 is still not bad, and all my players scored points so I'm looking forward to the next round in two weeks.
Speaking of autumn, one can tell the summer is gone for this time now. It's colder outside, the trees are getting more and more yellow and the mornings are no more sunny. But the summer of 2009 was great and I feel refreshed for the autumn and winter to come. I think it will be a nice autumn as well, at least I hope so.

The repair mission added a new camera to the orbiting telescope. The new wide field camera 3 replaces the wide field camera 2. The new camera covers the visible spectrum and some of the near ultraviolet and infrared fields.
"With these two channels, WFC3 will achieve excellent panchromatic (full - spectrum) imaging. Stellar objects are not just in the visible spectrum, but also exist in the blue (near-UV) and red (near-IR) extremes. WFC3 was designed to study light in these regions of the spectrum better than Hubble's current capabilities."
Below are a few of the pictures that Hubble has sent back and they show some remarkable events occurring in Space.
"What resemble dainty butterfly wings are actually roiling cauldrons of gas heated to more than 20 000 degrees Celcius. The gas is tearing across space at more than 1 000 000 kilometers an hour -- fast enough to travel from Earth to the moon in 24 minutes!"
"The image reveals a small region inside the massive globular cluster Omega Centauri, which boasts nearly 10 million stars. Globular clusters, ancient swarms of stars united by gravity, are the homesteaders of our Milky Way galaxy. The stars in Omega Centauri are between 10 billion and 12 billion years old. The cluster lies about 16,000 light-years from Earth."
"This image of barred spiral galaxy NGC 6217 is the first image of a celestial object taken with the new WFC3 camera.

Så hände då det oundvikliga - mina ledigheter tog slut och jag måste tillbaka till arbetet. Men jag hade en fin sommar, ledig i juni och augusti och när jag jobbade i juli var alla andra lediga. Nu kommer hösten med nya erfarenheter, en blir att vi blir utsourcade någonstans och jag hoppas allt kommer att gå bra med det.

Tao Ma designed this mouse-and-mousepad setup that's crafted just to keep a drink or small plate of food hot. When you move your mouse along the mousepad, both specially designed to include induction coils, friction between them creates electromagnetic induction that gets transferred to the hot plate. For the guy out there who spends all day online, hates cold coffee (like me) and has to have a dedicated permanent spot for everything on his desk — well, that guy is having the best day ever, now!

I början på 1990-talet hade Sverige ett par starka 100 meterslöpare av vilka Peter var den bäste. De tränade staffett tillsammans och var så bra att de sprang OS-finalen i Atlanta 1996. Peters prestation inträffade den 8 feb 2008 när han sprang på 9,98, tyvärr dock med för mycket medvind så något officiellt rekord blev det inte. Men i historieböckerna är han ändå snabbast i Sverige med sina godkända 10,18, också från 1996.
Nedan ett klipp från 9,98-loppet då det begav sig.
