Astronomers Get First Look At Uranus's Rings As They Swing Edge-on To Earth

"The outermost ring is not visible in our infrared images," said de Pater's co-author, Heidi B. Hammel of the Space Science Institute in Boulder, Colo. "This ring is very blue, and therefore harder to see in the infrared. We may detect it when the rings are fully edge-on and when we can observe it for several hours."
With further analysis of the Hubble data, astronomer Mark Showalter of the SETI Institute hopes to detect some of the small moons, and perhaps some not seen before, that shepherd the debris into distinct rings.

Until Voyager flew by in January 1986, the rings were only known from the way they temporarily blocked the light of stars passing behind Uranus. Earth-based images have been too blurry until recently, with the advent of Keck adaptive optics and the Advanced Camera for Surveys of the Hubble telescope.

WillCOM teams up with Sanyo on AA-powered bare-bones mobile phone


Posted by Will
WillCOM and Sanyo team up for AA-battery powered mobile phone

Oh, and itâ™s powered by a singe AA-battery. Pop in any AA-battery and youâ™re good to make screen-less phone calls for 5 hours of talk time on the Japanese PHS network, or wait for an unknown caller for 250 hours of standby. Why the phone has to be as large as it is, we donâ™t know. But, we kinda like the quirky, battery-shaped design that pays homage to its power source.

Weâ™re glad to see WillCOM and Sanyo working on a AA-battery-powered mobile phone for the masses. But weâ™d rather pick up that Philiphs Xenium NRG phone that rocks a AAA-battery power source -  itâ™s got a screen and doesnâ™t look ridiculous.

When the power grid is not there to charge your cell phone, regular batteries needed only.
