Are you looking for a reason to wear a bobble hat this autumn? Here are two 👇 . 1️⃣ A bobble will keep you warmer. It’s basic physics, thanks to its round shape. 🌕Heat is lost at the surface of your body. Spherical objects tend to keep their heat in better, as they have a low surface area to volume ratio. (There is more core than surface.) So the bobble leads to less loss of heat at the particular spot that it covers. In fact the bigger the bobble, the better for this purpose! . 2️⃣ Although heat loss normally leads to shivering, as your body tries to warm itself up, this isn’t the case when heat is lost through the head. It’s a strange quirk of the human body. So the warmer you can keep your head, the better! 🔥 💃I’ll never be a stylish travel blogger but I think I serendipitously aced this outfit.😉 Fellow bobble fan is legendary Scottish climber Tom Weir. .

Instead of wings, the Struthiomimus had fingers that ended in sharp claws. Our Struthiomimus skeleton is a sight to behold in the main court of the Museum. It’s name means “Ostritch mimic” as it was a long-legged, bi-pedal, feathered dinosaur with a toothless beak. It’s believed that it actually looked a lot like modern day ostrich! Also like a modern ostrich, it’s believed it could run at speeds of around 80 km/h.

The Old Man of Storr. I love funny names. There are plenty in Scotland. For example this one here. Apparently there was a giant who died here after a fight and those spikes you see are his fingers. 😀. There's another one, "Storr", behind me. This apparently was his father. From my hiking adventure on Isle of Skye when I set off yo find Dinosaur footprints. Today's brilliantly sunny weather reminded me of those amazing 3 days in complete solace.

The Fairy Pools 🧚‍♀️🧚🏿‍♂️ . Everything here is on a diminutive scale, with each pool falling into the other through mini waterfalls and tiny streams, all ultimately fed from the Black Cuillin mountain range.🗻 . It’s easy to see where the name Fairy Pools come from - the pools remain hidden until you’re directly upon them, and surrounding each one are nooks and crannies that could easily house little people, had they existed. 🔎 . 🔬 Did you know that many hobbyists in the 19th century used microscopes to hunt for fairies, and described “fairy worlds” and “fairy forms” seen under the lens? I wonder if any of them came here.🙃 . Part of my Isle of Skye series.

On the way to Conic Hill with @strathphotoclub 2 years ago. Conic Hill lies on the Highland Boundary Fault and is a perfect location for amazing vistas in 360°. The HBF line extends from here eastward to Stonehaven. I suppose it's time to visit that folder now. Side note: Some people did not believe this is my own photograph. 😀 Yes, it's one of my favourite photographs and it has been printed and hanged on the wall. _______________________________________ Read my latest "Science-Travel" blog here: http://bhingri.in/ _______________________________________ #BhingriTravels #lochlomond #travelblogger #solotravel #visitscotland #scicomm #geology #ScienceTravel #geologyrocks #ThisIsScotland #scotlandmagazine #IgersEdinburgh #Scotspirit #ScotlandNow #instaScotland #Ig_Scotland #LoveScotland #OutAndAboutScotland #BeautifulDestinations #jaw_dropping_shots #lovetotravel #vibrantportraits #stayandwander #fantasticearth #moodygrams #visualsofearth #earthpix #landscapephotography #BeautifulDestinations #goodmorning @visitscotland @ig_scotland @insta_scottish @uk_wildlife_images @map_of_unitedkingdom @discover_uk @this_is_scotland @scotland4you @hiddenscotland @scotland.shots @capturingbritain @scotlandscenery @scotlandsbeauty @scotlandexplore @icu_scotland
Not only do I dream of traveling, but I also envision creating an engaging travel-centered Earth science curriculum. . 🤞for a summer back in Hawaii to develop a hot spot/volcano/igneous rock storyline curriculum. .

Sometimes, when you travel, you find such gems which otherwise go unnoticed. Visited this tiny island accidentally one day and realised it lies on the Highland Boundary Fault. Perhaps that's why most of the big lakes in Scotland are to the north of this fault line where the rock is impervious. What a beautiful place and such interesting connection with geology. _______________________________________ Read my latest "Science-Travel" blog here: http://bhingri.in/ _______________________________________ #BhingriTravels #lochlomond #travelblogger #solotravel #visitscotland #scicomm #geology #ScienceTravel #geologyrocks #ThisIsScotland #scotlandmagazine #IgersEdinburgh #Scotspirit #ScotlandNow #instaScotland #Ig_Scotland #LoveScotland #OutAndAboutScotland #BeautifulDestinations #jaw_dropping_shots #lovetotravel #vibrantportraits #stayandwander #fantasticearth #moodygrams #visualsofearth #earthpix #landscapephotography #BeautifulDestinations #goodmorning @visitscotland @ig_scotland @insta_scottish @uk_wildlife_images @map_of_unitedkingdom @discover_uk @this_is_scotland @scotland4you @hiddenscotland @scotland.shots @capturingbritain @scotlandscenery @scotlandsbeauty @scotlandexplore @icu_scotland

Conic Hill after fresh snow. Highland Boundary Fault passes through Conic Hill (where am standing) and the islands that you see further up in the corner. On the right side of this line the rocks are hard and impervious while on the left side they are soft and permeable. Standing here is like standing over a million year old treasure. _______________________________________ Read my latest "Science-Travel" blog here: http://bhingri.in/ _______________________________________ #BhingriTravels #lochlomond #travelblogger #solotravel #visitscotland #scicomm #geology #ScienceTravel #geologyrocks #ThisIsScotland #scotlandmagazine #IgersEdinburgh #Scotspirit #ScotlandNow #instaScotland #Ig_Scotland #LoveScotland #OutAndAboutScotland #BeautifulDestinations #jaw_dropping_shots #lovetotravel #vibrantportraits #stayandwander #fantasticearth #moodygrams #visualsofearth #earthpix #landscapephotography #BeautifulDestinations #goodmorning @visitscotland @ig_scotland @insta_scottish @uk_wildlife_images @map_of_unitedkingdom @discover_uk @this_is_scotland @scotland4you @hiddenscotland @scotland.shots @capturingbritain @scotlandscenery @scotlandsbeauty @scotlandexplore @icu_scotland

This ones from Jolly Bouy Island in Andaman🏖️ Sunbathing in the pristine white sand beach with different hues of turquoise. You'll find the purest form of nature here and most exotic corals as this island is only open for six months in a year and it is a PLASTIC FREE ZONE. isn't that amazing!😍 . Do you see the different shades of blue here in ocean? Ever wondered why? Well, water absorbs the red♦️, oranges 🔶and other higher wavelength of light leaving only blues🔷 and violets💜 to reflect back for our eyes to see. The reason why water appears blue to us. 🌊🌀🔘 . Why the different shades of blue? In deep water, all the sun rays are absorbed by water molecules and due to lack of sediment and organic matter the blue color is darker. Whereas, near to shore the corals are more and they absorb the light differently and hence the different shade of water. Jolly bout island is rich source of exotic corals, if you visit definitely go for #snorkelling or #scubadiving. For others, glass boats are also there to watch the corals🦠 . #thetoxicmindtravels #andaman #sciencetravel #portblair #island #jollybouy #plasticfree #corals #reflection #light #ocean #blue #beach #nature #traveldiaries #throwback2016

Mountains and Snow make me the happiest🏔️❄️ Are you mountain person as well? 🥶 . This is me at #khardungla in #ladakh which is the highest motorable road in #India. It is at elevation of 17,582 ft above the sea level which is pretty good high altitude. Low amount of oxygen at such high altitudes causes effects on human body known as *Altitude Mountain Sickness* or AMS. . So what causes AMS?🏂🏔️⛷️ When we inhale at sea level, the pressure oxygen exerts in our alveoli is greater than the pressure of blood in the lungs and this pressure gradient drives oxygen at the alveolar level, into the blood. As we ascent the pressure of oxygen entering the lungs decreases resulting in lesser oxygen entering the blood. Sea level ⛴️concentration of oxygen is about 21% with pressure of 760 mmHG. Once you cross 12000 feets the pressure drops below 483 mmHG and you get to breathe only 40% oxygen molecules compared to normal levels. Due to hypoxia a series of symptoms develop which manifests as AMS.🗻Headache is the most common one combined with any set of others like, lack of appetite🥴, nausea and vomiting🤮, weakness, light-headedness, inability to sleep😖, pins and needles pains😰, breathing difficulty on exertion, rapid pulse, drowsiness😵, general lack of interest 🤒etc. These symptoms decreases after 2-3 days when one becomes acclimatized to the altitude.🧗 . Well, I definitely had no symptoms of #mountainsickness but little increased breathing rate after jumping with joy seeing the #snowfall first time ever. A fellow traveler gave me Kapur/ camphor wrapped in cloth to smell saying it will help in breathing. It did!! Not really sure how does that work?!?🧐🤔 . #leh #ladakh #thetoxicmindstravel #khardunglapass #mountains #scicomm #sciencetravel #mountainselfie #traveldiaries #acutemountainsickness #AMS #hypoxia #oxygen #blood #highpressure #lungs #alveoli ##camphor #altitude #symptoms #snow
We have science! 😎🔬⚗️🧬 ✔️Water Wheel!✔️ 🔻 🧷When water flows into the buckets, they become heavier🛁 🧷This makes the water wheel turn. The water then flows out of these buckets through a hole in the bottom, while other buckets fill up! 🧷We don’t know which position the wheel was in when the water started flowing, and we cannot measure exactly how much water flows into and out of the buckets and how much influence the wind has on the wheel 🤷🏻‍♀️🧬👁‍🗨 ———————- 🧷Any slight change in these factors will cause the wheel to turn differently: more quickly or more slowly, clockwise or anti-clockwise. We call this a #chaoticsystem. 🧷Here, chaotic means that there are infinşte possibilities.

I'm helping Apollo lift the Sun. 🌞 Walking along the Planetwanderweg in Bad Nauheim. Travelling out in a line for 2km from the Sun are nine planets (counting Pluto as a planet in this case). The entire model of the Solar System is on a 1:2.8billion scale. So shrink everything - the distance and the planets - by 2,800,000,000 (note that the sun isn't to scale, because even shrunk that much, it would still be gigantic!) Each planet is represented by its size and the Greek or Roman God it is named after: Mercury is the fastest traveling planet and is named after the Roman god of travel, so it has wings to travel swiftly. Mars, the red planet, is named after the Roman god of war. The statue is made of a rust-red material and Mars sits in a chariot wielding a sword. Jupiter, the Roman god of thunder and the sky is hurling lighting bolts at the sky. (He is the equivalent to the Greek Zeus.) @mariesophie.philipp and I made it all the way to Pluto, where we had a magnificent view of the town. #travellingscientist #travelingscientist #sciencetravel #science #travel #astronomy #space #planets #thesun #astronomyfacts #astronomyart #astronomylover #astronomynerd #sciencenerd #sciencelover #mercury #mars #jupiter #uranus #theplanets #solarsystem #badnauheim #germany #germantown #travelGermany #europetrip #romangods #greekgods #mythology #romanmythology
Street of the infected (in Maltese: Triq ta’ l-Infetti) 😷 . That’s the name of the street that I was standing on when I took this pretty shot. It sounds like something out of a zombie movie and with good reason. 🧟‍♀️ . The little chapel in the photo marks a cemetery with a matching name: Ta’ l-Infetti (of the Infected). Here, far away from village centers, people who died from contagious infections like the plague were buried during outbreaks. They were carted away in the dozens - plague killed almost 5% of the Maltese population in 1813. ⚰️⚰️⚰️ . The bacterium that causes bubonic plague (Yersinia pestis) was only discovered in 1894, and the first true antibiotics in the early 1900s, so plague outbreaks back then must have been just as terrifying as a zombie apocalypse would be today.🧟‍♂️🧟‍♂️🧟‍♀️🧟‍♂️🧟‍♀️ . There are other similar cemeteries dotted around rural areas in Malta. A little piece of medical history in the countryside. . . . . #mdina #mdinamalta #maltagram #maltesescience #rabatmalta #medicalhistory #plaguecemetery #cemeteries #cemeteriesofinstagram #antibiotics #antibioticresistance #thankyouantibiotics #scicomm #womeninstem #womeninscience #sciencegram #travelscience #sciencetravel #sciencecommunicator #travelgram #traveldeeper #darktravel #maltesehistory #historygram #learnsomethingnew #learnsomethingneweveryday #contagion #staycurious #sunsets #atlasobscura
I'm visiting @mariesophie.philipp's home town of Bad Nauheim and enjoying the seabreeze - far away from the actual sea. There are a few towns scattered around Germany with the name "Bad" referring to the fact that it's a bath town with healing waters. They have several walls like this, called Salinen, that are stacked high with wooden sticks. Water with a concentration of 1-2% salt is run down and increases its concentration as it does so to reach up to 16%. The water, carried down by the wind, also creates a most similar to the salty air you might find at the ocean. The entire system is kept running by the mechanical energy generated by water from the river flowing over the turning wheel so that it's self-sustaining. #travellingscientist #travelingscientist #sciencetravel #science #travel #ocean #seabreeze #germantown #germany #brunnen #chemistry #physics
Smile for the camera! 😔 😊 😡 😲 This is the Public Face in Hamburg's HafenCity. CCTV cameras in the area monitor the faces of people passing by and feeds them into an artificial intelligence algorithm. The AI then controls the facial expression of the Public Face to reflect the mood of the people. The mouth and eyes are attached to metal rods that can rotate as necessary to turn that frown upside down. #travellingscientist #travelingscientist #sciencetravel #science #travel #ArtificialIntelligence #AI #Hamburg #HafenCity #hamburg_art #hamburg⚓️ #visithamburg #europetrip
Swimming among the jellyfish (and having to do a Dory and Marlin so as not to touch the tentacles and sting myself). . . As a molecular biologist, I very much appreciate jellyfish for their contribution to science, namely, their green fluorescent protein (GFP). GFP makes for an excellent tool in many forms of biology due to its ability to glow green under ultraviolet/blue light. The protein is excited by the UV light and gives off a higher wavelength of light, that happens to be green. In molecular and cellular biology, GFP is often used as a reporter of gene expression. We link it to a gene of interest so that we know if the GFP is being produced, what we wanted must be being produced too. You can also make whole organisms or organs glow green depending on what you link GFP to. Jellyfish are cool. But not if they sting you. After all that swimming and science, I'm rewarding myself with a Danish danish. #travellingscientist #travelingscientist #sciencetravel #science #travel #biomedicine #biomedicalresearch #GFP #molecularbiology #cellbiology #genetics #gene #biology #copenhagen #denmark #danishpastry #jellyfish
Today is the birthday anniversary of Hans Christian Joachim Gram (13th of September 1853). He was a Danish bacteriologist, so how fitting for me to be celebrating in Copenhagen. You know how bacteria are classified as Gram positive or Gram negative? He's THAT Gram. He developed the Gram stain, a standard technique to classify bacteria and make them more visible under a microscope. Gram positive bacteria have a thick cell wall (containing peptidoglycan, a protein-sugar molecule) and so when they're stained with crystal violet and iodine, they bind strongly to the dye while it is easily washed off Gram negative bacteria. The GNs are then counter-stained in pink so that they're visible under the microscope too. Basically, under the microscope, purple = GP and pink = GN. Whether bacteria are Gram positive or negative can actually make a big difference to things like their susceptibility to antibiotics. #travellingscientist #travelingscientist #sciencetravel #science #travel #biomedicine #biomedicalresearch #bacteria #microbes #bacteriology #immunology #IAmAnImmunologist #microscope #microscopy #scienceoutreach #sciencecommunication #SciComm #biology #scienceeducation #STEMeducation #Gramstain #copenhagen #denmark #visitcopenhagen
Adventures in Copenhagen 🇩🇰 I wandered along the river, strolled through parks and gardens, meandered down streets, and are the best pastries I've ever had! I also got very excited at all the plant species in the botanic gardens. There were different sections housing plants that grow in rocks (e.g. Succulents) or ones that need to be in a greenhouse (plus there were butterflies). #danishpastry #denmark #copenhagen #travel #whistlestoptour #sciencetravel #travellingscientist #travelingscientist #botany #nyhavn
A day out on the Isle of Bute 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 The original Mount Stuart house was built in 1719 by the 2nd Earl of Bute, but rebuilt by the 3rd Marquess of Bute following a fire in 1877, taking 20 years to build and never fully completed. It looks absolutely stunning with so much detail, but there are some areas where carvings haven't been finished (that are only noticeable if they're pointed out) because many of the workers went to fight in the war and never came back. It claims to be home to the world's first heated pool in any house and it was the first home in Scotland to be lit by electricity (although indoor pool water has been heated by using fire underneath since the Roman times and I didn't see it so...) #travellingscientist #travelingscientist #sciencetravel #Scotland #visitscotland #isleofbute #mountstuart @visitscotland
Not going to lie: every time I go to Glasgow I get excited about seeing a Big Blue Box. It's the geek within me that goes all Whovian. #DoctorWho #TARDIS #policebox #Glasgow #Glaswegian #doctorwhofandom #whovian #travellingscientist #travelingscientist #sciencetravel
Under pressure! . These heads were once identical, but one was sent down to the bottom of Loch Ness and the other remained above. Can you guess which is which? . Yep, it’s the smaller, pitted head that journeyed to the bottom and the difference is due to the pressure exerted by the water above it. 💧💧 . Moral of the story: too much pressure is no good for your head! Make sure to decompress every so often. 🙃 . A message dedicated to all students and educators as universities start their next scholastic year, but extendable to all. .

It's hard to see in this picture, but that's a dinosaur fossil with SKIN. Discovered in southwestern North Dakota in 1999, it's a duck-billed Edmontosaurus estimated to be 67 million years old. "Dakota the Dinomummy" sounds like something from a PBS cartoon -- and it's technically a fossil of a mummified dinosaur, not an actual mummy -- but these kinds of intact fossils are valuable scientific finds. Also cool. #dakotathedinomummy #northdakota
Bristol is often overlooked as a holiday destination, but it's beautiful and such a lovely town to hang out in! Plus I had great company @doroou The 🌈 in the water is formed by the reflection, refraction and dispersion of white light in water droplets resulting in a spectrum of light so that we see all the individual colours. #Bristol #travel #travellingscientist #travelingscientist #sciencetravel #physics #rainbow #walkingonwater #waterwall #streetart #banksy #banksyart
Avon Gorge and the Clifton Suspension Bridge (ft weird bag arm) 🌉 Suspension bridges allow bridges to span great lengths. The bulk of the force is taken by the two towers on either side so that it can dissipate into the ground. The weight of any load on the bridge pushes downwards, which creates tension in the main cables, and these pull the force back towards the towers. Supporting cables also carry force along chains that run 20m below the ground to concrete slabs on the land sides of the towers. The result is an equilibrium that can carry about 100 tonnes, and remain stable with changing winds and temperatures. #travellingscientist #travelingscientist #sciencetravel #science #travel #engineering #eng #bridge #suspensionbridge #engineer
