109 is a visual arts and science collaborative project which aims to explore and reflect upon the diversity of elements that comprise matter in as unique and innovative manner as possible. 109 aims to produce a new and vibrant visual assessment of the startling diversity of material that constitutes the world in which we live, not simply by rendering images of the respective elements but also by investigating the manner in which they affect our daily lives in largely unseen and often unexpected ways. The site contains an interactive periodic table. Clicking on any element in the table brings up a web page with practical, historical, and physical information and animations relating to that element. The site also has a section entitled Periodic Landscapes which contains computer generated landscape views and models based on various patterns and relationships within the periodic table. The site also includes a brief history of the periodic table, free e-postcards, and more. (less)

Originally spotted in 2003, Xena was not officially announced until July of 2005. On the heels of the publication of Xena̢ĺŰĺŞs existence, comes the revelation that Xena has a moon, named Gabrielle. The names Xena and Gabrielle are only temporary, used by some astronomers because they are simpler to remember than names such as 2003 UB313. To decide the official name, the International Astronomical Union (IAU) must first decide if Xena is in fact a planet, then they will decide if the discoverers̢ĺŰĺŞ proposed name will be used. The astronomers who discovered both Xena and Gabrielle cannot reveal their proposed name, so until then the nicknames will have to suffice. Xena was found in the Kuiper Belt, which is a huge region of icy planetary bodies that orbit beyond Neptune in the distant region of the solar system. The discovery of this new planet and its moon has reignited the debate about what properties an object must possess in order to be classed as a planet. Prior to this newest discovery, Pluto̢ĺŰĺŞs status as a planet was already in question by some astronomers. But while Pluto rests on 100 years of history as a planet, newly discovered bodies are not so easily defined. Until the IAU can agree on a definition of a planet, Pluto will continue to hang on tenuously to its status as one of nine planets, and its mnemonic device, My Very Excellent Mother Just Sent Us Nine Pizzas, will remain as well. While the public awaits the final definition of what constitutes a planet, both school children and adults alike can rest easy and will not yet have to ponder what else our excellent mother will send us.The first link takes users to the announcement of the discovery of Xena in August made in the Yale Daily News. The second link takes the user to an article from the BBC further discussing the planetary debate. The third link is a BBC article that includes this week̢ĺŰĺŞs announcement about Xena̢ĺŰĺŞs moon. For further knowledge about the astronomers and telescope involved with these two discoveries, among others, the fourth link will take the user to their website. The fifth and sixth link will take the user directly to the discovering astronomers̢ĺŰĺŞ website for the announcements about the new moon, Xena, and information on the progress of the IAU. If you are interested in the IAU, the seventh link will take you to their website. And finally the last link will take you to a website dedicated to providing more information on the Kuiper Belt and the icy bodies that make up this far region of our solar system. (less)

To develop applications to run on the ez430 chip, we use the IAR Embedded Workbench IDE (integrated development environment). Not only does this application provide a powerful code editor, but it also allows a simple one-click deployment of the source code onto the MSP chip using USB as well as hardware debugging capabilities that allow you to trace through actual stack calls. This module is intended to give you an introduction to the IAR Workbench application so that you may create and develop your own ez430 applications. (less)
