ARS Image K5698-1: Readying for nighttime surveillance of migrating moths, agricultural engineer Wayne Wolf (left) adjusts a radar dish. When initial moth flight is detected, meteorologist Ritchie Eyster will launch a constant-altitude tetroon. Its movement will be tracked by Argos satellites and a mobile LORAN system to measure winds that affect moth mobility.Photo by Jack Dykinga.
ARS Image K11662-1: This U.S. cow and others like her are safe from mad cow disease (bovine spongiform encephalopathy) thanks in large part to ARS research on the disease and other transmissible spongiform encephalopathies.Photo by Peggy Greb.
ARS Image K7900-7: The automated inspection system compares pictures of each bird as viewed through a red filter and a green filter, to spot defective chickens. Here, agricultural engineer Yud-Ren Chen places a green filter on one of the lenses of the computerized, four-camera subsystem.Photo by Keith Weller.
ARS Image K7033-20: The Asian multicolored lady beetle, Harmonia axyridis, is easy to identify from its false "eyes"-- twin white football-shaped markings behind the head. In color, the insects range from black to mustard, with zero to many spots. A common U.S. form is mustard to red and has 16 or more black spots.Photo by Scott Bauer.
Ars Image K8932-1: Stomach tissue is placed between halves of a glass parabiotic chamber. Alkaloids are added to the one side of the tissue to see whether they are transported through the tissue to the other side.Photo by Scott Bauer.
ARS Image K4659-1: When you buy a tomato product-a bottle of catsup, a can of tomato soup, or a jar of spaghetti sauce-you're paying the cost of removing that water. But thanks to ARS research by plant physiologist Merle Weaver at the Western Regional Research Center, in Albany California, tomorrow's tomatoes might have less water and more of the compounds called solids that processors condense at the factory. The concentrate, rich in fiber and natural sugars, becomes the starting point for tomato paste and most of the other tomato-based foods at your supermarket.Photo by Scott Bauer.

Aerogels are the lightest existing solid materials--in fact an ounce of aerogel has the surface area of 10 football fields--and they have exceptional insulating properties. Scientists at Berkeley lab are studying aerogels great potential in a wide range of applications including energy-efficient insulation and windows, acoustics, battery technology and microelectronics.

SOHO (ESA & NASA): Solar rotation and polar flows of the Sun as deduced from measurements by MDI. The cutaway reveals rotation speed inside the Sun. The left side of the image represents the difference in rotation speed between various areas on the Sun. Red-yellow is faster than average and blue is slower than average. The light orange bands are zones that are moving slightly faster than their surroundings.
