MOMI - Museum of Musical Instruments
|When jazz artist Pat Metheny asked Canadian instrument maker Linda Manzer to create a guitar with as many strings as possible, the result was dubbed the Pikasso. A guitar collector was so fascinated by the instrument that he had Manzer replicate it in a strictly acoustic version, without the electronic pickups incorporated into Metheny's instrument. With two soundholes, three necks and forty-two strings in four groups, the Pikasso II is a tour-de-force of the luthier's art.|

Neodymium magnetsNeodymium magnets - The most powerful magnets on Earth.
The magnets are very powerful, much more powerful than magnets most people have seen, and need to be handled with proper care. The magnetic fields from these magnets can affect each other from more than 12 inches away. Please note that these magnets are fragile. Even though they are coated with a tough protective nickel plating, do not allow them to snap together with their full force or they may chip, break, and possibly send small pieces of metal flying on impact.
Our larger magnets can easily bruise fingers and even break finger bones as they attempt to connect together.
They have many interesting things to chek out: United Nuclear - Scientific Equipment & Supplies
The Empire That Was Russia
|The architectural richness of the Russian Empire reflected its long history and the cultural, ethnic, and religious diversity of its people. Prokudin-Gorskii photographed medieval churches and monasteries in European Russia and mosques and Islamic schools in the Caucasus and Central Asia. Many of the buildings he photographed were later destroyed by war or revolution, but others survived the Soviet period and have been restored. In addition to religious buildings, Prokudin-Gorskii photographed houses, country estates, factories, and barns. His skill as a photographer and the technical sophistication of his methods are apparent in the treatment of subjects ranging from church interiors to panoramic shots of cities.|

The picture shows the "Roulette": The curve traced by a fixed point on a closed convex curve as that curve rolls without slipping along a second curve. The roulettes described by the foci of conics when rolled upon a line are sections of minimal surfaces (i.e., they yield minimal surfaces when revolved about the line) known as unduloids.
