Around the Empire
"Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey," is a relaunch of Carl Sagan’s classic "Cosmos: A Personal Voyage." The show, hosted by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, is designed to reach everyone with its broad, visually stunning approach to science.
Cosmos premieres Sunday (March 9) on FOX, and Monday (March 10) on the National Geographic Channel.
“On September 14, 1935, Buck Ruxton, a physician who lived in Lancashire, near the English-Scottish border, murdered his wife Isabella and her maid Mary Rogerson, and then mutilated their bodies and scattered the parts, in an effort to make them unidentifiable.
After a passerby discovered some remains under a bridge in Scotland, a team of forensic experts was assembled.
Using an array of scientific methods, the experts identified the victims and unmasked the perpetrator.
The painstaking reconstruction of the bodies of Isabella Ruxton and Mary Rogerson by forensic pathologist John Glaister Jr. and anatomist James Couper Brash—and pioneering use of photographic superimpositions—was the key evidence that led to Dr. Ruxton’s conviction and execution.
The success of the methods used in the Ruxton case, which was widely reported in the press, led to increased public and professional trust in the capabilities of forensic science.”

Psychedelic Images From Inside Your Body
In the course of developing sophisticated imaging techniques for peering into the human body, Hong Kong–based radiologist Dr. Kai-hung Fung discovered something within himself: an artist.
The discovery happened when Fung was asked by surgeons to generate 3-D images to allow them to visualize complex anatomies prior to surgery. Beginning with CT scans that show slices of organs at different depths, Fung stacked the slices into a single image and developed a way to indicate changes in depth with contour lines similar to those on a topographic map.
Adding “millions of colors and the infinite combination of different shades of colors can be more informative than the simple steps of grey scale,” Fung wrote in an email about how he came up with the idea.
