Supernova 2005: Attention
By nat on June 22, 2005
You need to read this. Linda Stone just gave a fantastic address on what we pay attention to and what drives human use of software. She is the coup of the conference: if I could grab any of the conference speakers for our conferences, it would be herI've been trying for years but her schedule has never lined up with ours. Here are my near-verbatim notes from her talk: Pop quiz. It's okay to answer "yes" to a question even if you're contradicting an earlier answer:
  • Technology has improved my life
  • Technology has harmed my quality of life
  • I pay full attention to people when they talk to me, when I am in meetings, when I work
  • I pay partial attention to what I'm doing and I'm scanning my devices or software for other inputs
  • Technology sets me free
  • Technology enslaves me
In 1997 I coined the phrase "continuous partial attention". For almost two decades, continuous partial attention has been a way of life to cope and keep up with responsibilities and relationships. We've stretched our attention bandwidth to upper limits. We think that if tech has a lot of bandwidth then we do, too. With continuous partial attention we keep the top level item in focus and scan the periphery in case something more important emerges. Continuous partial attention is motivated by a desire not to miss opportunities. We want to ensure our place as a live node on the network, we feel alive when we're connected. To be busy and to be connected is to be alive.

One of the most energetic explosive events known is a supernova. These occur at the end of a star's lifetime, when its nuclear fuel is exhausted and it is no longer supported by the release of nuclear energy. If the star is particularly massive, then its core will collapse and in so doing will release a huge amount of energy. This will cause a blast wave that ejects the star's envelope into interstellar space. The result of the collapse may be, in some cases, a rapidly rotating neutron star that can be observed many years later as a radio pulsar. While many supernovae have been seen in nearby galaxies, they are relatively rare events in our own galaxy. The last to be seen was Kepler's star in 1604. This remnant has been studied by many X-ray astronomy satellites, including ROSAT . There are, however, many remnants of Supernovae explosions in our galaxy, that are seen as X-ray shell like structures caused by the shock wave propagating out into the interstellar medium. Another famous remnant is the Crab Nebula which exploded in 1054. In this case a pulsar is seen which rotates 30 times a second and emits a rotating beam of X-rays (like a lighthouse). Another dramatic supernova remnant is the

BACK INDEX NEXT Supernova Remnant the Cygnus Loop HUBBLE'S CLOSE-UP VIEW OF A SHOCKWAVE FROM A STELLAR EXPLOSION This image shows a small portion of a nebula called the "Cygnus Loop." Covering a region on the sky six times the diameter of the full Moon, the Cygnus Loop is actually the expanding blastwave from a stellar cataclysm - a supernova explosion - which occurred about 15,000 years ago. In this image the supernova blast wave, which is moving from left to right across the field of view, has recently hit a cloud of denser than average interstellar gas. This collision drives shock waves into the cloud that heats interstellar gas, causing it to glow. Just as the microscope revolutionized the study of the human body by revealing the workings of cells, the Hubble Space Telescope is offering astronomers an unprecedented look at fine structure within these shock fronts. Astronomers have been performing calculations of what should go on behind shock fronts for about the last 20 years, but detailed observations have not been possible until Hubble. This image was taken with Hubble's Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2). The color is produced by composite of three different images. Blue shows emission from "doubly ionized" oxygen atoms (atoms that have had two electrons stripped away) produced by the heat behind the shock front. Red shows light given off by "singly ionized" sulfur atoms (sulfur atoms that are missing a single electron). This sulfur emission arises well behind the shock front, in gas that has had a chance to cool since the passage of the shock. Green shows light emitted by hydrogen atoms. Much of the hydrogen emission comes from an extremely thin zone (only several times the distance between the Sun and Earth) immediately behind the shock front itself. These thin regions appear as sharp, green, filaments in the image.

Supernova Remnants (SNR's)
Click to go to the only supernova remnant in Messier's catalog, the first object, the Crab Nebula M1 . M1 is also shown in the icon.
When a star explodes in a supernova explosion, it depends on its type what exactly remains. But anyway, the offbursted gaseous remainders will form a rapidly expanding and slowly fading cloud, mixing with the interstellar matter which is "swept up" when the shell expands, and is a domain of an extreme kind of physics. These nebulae are called supernova remnants (SNRs). Depending on the type of the supernova, there may also be a central compact remnant in the form of a neutron star. According to current theory, two different mechanisms produce supernovae: First, stars considerably more massive than our Sun can most probably not evolve quietly into an end state as a white dwarf. When coming to age, these massive stars explode in a most violent detonation which flashes up at a luminosity of up to 10 billion times that of the sun, called supernova (of type II, or Ib or Ic), and ejecting the very greatest part of the stellar matter in a violently expanding shell. These explosions are thought to leave a compact remnant, such as a neutron star. Aternatively, infalling matter on a white dwarf star can cause it to explode as a supernova of type Ia; these events do probably not leave a stellar remnant. The classification of supernovae in types was introduced by Rudolph Minkowski ( Minkowski 1941 ) on the grounds of their spectra: Type I supernovae show no hydrogen lines in their spectra, whereas these lines are present in those of Type II. Later these types were subdivided, again based on their spectra. For Type I, subtype Ia shows no Helium in spectrum, characteristic absorption features, and in its later phase, emission lines from elements in the iron group. Type Ib shows helium lines, type Ic no helium but in its later phase, oxygen and calcium lines. Supernovae of types Ib and Ic are thought to originate from massive progenitor stars which have been stripped off their outer layers by companion stars, and thus lost their hydrogene and for Ic, also their helium.

ver the course of the last couple of centuries, scientists have amassed large amounts of evidence which have led them to conclude that the Universe is about 12-14 billion years old and was formed in the primordial event that scientists now call the Big Bang. However, in the last fifty years, an offshoot of Fundamentalist Christianity has grown up (mainly in, but not limited to, the US) called Young Earth Creationism.

For information about the 2000 movie, see Supernova (movie)
Remnant of Kepler's Supernova, SN 1604 Supernovae refer to several types of stellar explosions that produce extremely bright objects made of plasma that decline to invisibility over weeks or months. There are two possible routes to this end: either a massive star may cease to generate fusion energy in its core and collapse inward under the force of its own gravity , or a white dwarf star may accumulate material from a companion star until it reaches a critical mass and undergoes a thermonuclear explosion. In either case, the resulting supernova explosion expels much or all of the stellar material with great force. The explosion drives a blast wave into the surrounding space , forming a supernova remnant . One famous example of this process is the remnant of SN 1604 , shown at right. Supernova explosions are the main source of all the elements heavier than oxygen , and they are the only source of many important elements. For example, all the calcium in our bones and all the iron in our hemoglobin were synthesized in a supernova explosion, billions of years ago. Supernovae inject these heavy elements into the

The planet below was dark, but Earth's limb was glowing. "It was a thin, bright band of lightat first a deep royal blue, followed by the addition of red and orange," she recalled. "The rays of light seemed to be wrapping their fingers around the planet." Whitson narrowed her eyes when the Sun finally popped over the distant horizon. It was awfully bright. The station itself, moments earlier dark except for a few glowing windows, lit up from stem to stern reflecting the intense sunshine. What a sunrise!

The Hubble telescope has obtained the best images yet of a mysterious mirror-imaged pair of rings of glowing gas encircling the site of the stellar explosion called supernova 1987A. One possibility for these "hula hoops" of gas is that the two rings might be caused by a high-energy beam of radiation that is sweeping across the gas, like a searchlight sweeping across clouds. Though all of the rings appear inclined to our view (so that they appear to intersect), they are probably in three different planes. The small, bright ring lies in a plane containing the supernova; one larger ring lies in front of and the other behind the smallest one.
