Mandelbrot fractal Featured Print

Mandelbrot fractal

Mandelbrot fractal. Computer graphic showing a fractal image derived from the Mandelbrot Set. Fractals geometry is used to derive complex shapes as often occur in nature. The Mandelbrot Set, named after the mathematician Benoit B. Mandelbrot, is a group of complex numbers. Each point is assigned a colour depending upon its behaviour plotted under a series of simple but repeated mathematical operations or mappings. Generated on a computer screen, fractals are used to create models for real-world non-linear phenomena such as stock market prices, weather forecasting, plant growth, erosion of coastlines and fluid turbulence

Moon jellyfish Featured Print

Moon jellyfish

Moon jellyfish (Aurelia aurita). This is a very common jellyfish, found in coastal waters around the world. The moon jellyfish swims horizontally, keeping its bell near the water's surface at all times. It is carnivorous, feeding on zooplankton, which is trapped by the mucus lining on the bell before being moved along channels to the jellyfish's stomach. Although this jellyfish has tentacles containing nematocysts (stinging cells), the nematocysts are not strong enough to pierce human skin. This jellyfish can reach a diameter of 40 centimetres. Jellyfish are free-swimming aquatic invertebrates, related to the corals and anemones
