Follow as we explore the changing worlds of science and technology.
We got a new look for fashion week. Follow #iOnFashion during NYFW for original reporting on the intersection of science and fashion.
It’s time for the next #GEInstaWalk! On October 8th, we’ll explore a locomotive facility in Fort Worth, TX with @dankhole, @benjaminheath, @jayzombie, @chrisozer and @samhorine. We’d also like to invite two of our biggest rail fans along. Share a photo with the hashtag #GEInstaWalkContest on Instagram by 12AM on 9/21 that shows us how you capture the beauty of engineering and and you’ll have a chance to see locomotives come to life! Visit ge.com/instawalk for more details!

Xioatian Zhang presented pieces at the MADE Fashion Week Parsons MFA from her “Opposite side of my brain” collection that were unnatural in color but natural in form. She adhered hundreds of faceted spherical beads across her garments in a manner closely resembling the appearance of fruiting slime mold seen in the photographs of Kim Fleming. Cellular slime molds are composed of many single-celled amoebas that can aggregate and move as a single body. Individual cells can become spores with the aim to be blown in the air or be carried by passing animals (or perhaps a fashion model).

Zoey Jordan’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection radiates concepts derived from the fields of climatology and astronomy with her attention to albedo, or reflection coefficient. When rated on the scale used to measure reflectivity, nearly the entire Zoey Jordan collection would be a 1, for perfect reflection of a white surface. Accompanied with materials with Lambertian reflectance (after physicist Johann Heinrich Lambert who introduced the concept of perfect diffusion in 1760), the materials used in the collection literally shine with luminous intensity.

Traveling through interstellar space at over 11 miles per second, the Voyager Spacecraft (launched in 1977) currently carry aboard it a similarly reflective piece of art: a gold-plated copper phonograph record containing sounds and images meticulously selected to embody the diversity of life and culture on Earth. Powered by GE-designed command computers (for flight path, communication capability to NASA’s Mission Control) as well as the electricity generator (for instrumentation, computers, radio), these robotic emissaries literally and figuratively reflect the power of human ingenuity and exploration while merging intricate design and form.
