Hot Peppers

_MG_5064Cook’s Country senior editor Bryan Roof holds a slice of red bell pepper over a cranked-up open burner in order to get a deeper char on the fruit’s skin as additional peppers and planks of zucchini sizzle away in a grill pan before they’re chopped up and added to an in-development recipe for Panzanella salad. Keep an eye out for the dish on a tear-out recipe card in an upcoming issue of Cook’s Country Magazine! See more behind-the-scenes photos at: http://bit.ly/o0qi36

A couple months ago I shared some GIFs of invisible things, and I finally got around to putting them together in this video:

When light travels through areas of different air density, it bends. You’ve probably noticed the way distant pavement seems to shimmer on a hot day, or the way stars appear to twinkle. You’re seeing light that has been distorted as it passes through varying air densities, which are in turn created by varying temperatures and pressures.

Schlieren Flow Visualization can be used to visually capture these changes in density: the rising heat from a candle, the turbulence around an airplane wing, the plume of a sneeze … even sound.  Special thanks to Mike Hargather, a professor of mechanical engineering at New Mexico Tech, who kindly provided a lot of these videos.

Science!

I will never call myself a ‘cancer survivor’ because I think it devalues those who do not survive. There’s this whole mythology that people bravely battle their cancer and then they become ‘survivors.’ Well, the ones who don’t survive may be just as brave, just as courageous, wonderful people and I don’t feel that I have any leg up on them.
