Kodachrome and Nikon FE

Three classics, Nikon FE, Nikkort 28mm f/2.8 and Kodachrome 64. The expire date on the film was in 1981. The dates of the camera and lens unknown but probably around that time. The camera is kept as a backup in my cabin in the mountain and works perfectly. The film box was left there also a long time ago.
Note: this picture was taken with what is today regarded as an ancient digital camera, the Nikon D100. I do not expect that camera to work in 25 years from now...

NASA has posted an incredible view of the volcano  Sarychev Peak at the Kuril Islands. The image gives a very good perspective of the plume as can only be seen sideways from above.

Until recently only one meteorite impact crater was known in Norway, namely the Gardnos crater in Hallingdal north west of Oslo. However it is know widely accepted that a second large crater exists: the Ritland crater. The crater is 2.5km in diameter and about 300m deep. It is most likely made by a meteorite of 100m diameter that impacted about 600million years ago. The crater was discovered by Norwegian geologistFridtjof Riis of the International Research Institute of Stavanger AS. For more information here.

Even though the chimpanzees and the  humans have 95% or more of their DNA in common there are subtle differences. This article shed some light on that.
