  • The X-Tek team | The Antikythera Mechanism Research Project
    in 1986 by Roger Hadland It manufactures high resolution industrial X ray inspection systems including computed tomography CT systems In October 2005 the X Tek team took an eight and a half tonne X ray CT system known as BladeRunner to Athens to inspect the Antikythera Mechanism fragments over the course of two and a half weeks David Bate and Martin Allen collected over 600GB of X ray image data using the BladeRunner while Andrew Ramsey reconstructed these into 3D CT volumes He analysed these to create images of the internal structure of the fragments Under the corrosion could be read inscriptions which had lay hidden from sight for over 2000 years Alan Crawley and Peter Hockley provided valuable technical assistance on site while many other colleagues helped develop the unique 400kV microfocus X ray source back at base in Tring England The high power X ray source is now used to inspect aircraft turbine blades and other dense castings Some of the results can be seen on the X Tek web site In December 2007 X Tek was acquired by Metris a Belgium based metrology company Bookmark Search this post with Google Plus One Pinterest Tweets by antikytheradive Upgrade

  • Decoding the ancient Greek astronomical calculator known as the Antikythera Mechanism | The Antikythera Mechanism Research Project
    of the second century BC It is known that it calculated and displayed celestial information particularly cycles such as the phases of the moon and a luni solar calendar Calendars were important to ancient societies for timing agricultural activity and fixing religious festivals Eclipses and planetary motions were often interpreted as omens while the calm regularity of the astronomical cycles must have been philosophically attractive in an uncertain and violent world Named after its place of discovery in 1901 in a Roman shipwreck the Antikythera Mechanism is technically more complex than any known device for at least a millennium afterwards Its specific functions have remained controversial because its gears and the inscriptions upon its faces are only fragmentary Here we report surface imaging and high resolution X ray tomography of the surviving fragments enabling us to reconstruct the gear function and double the number of deciphered inscriptions The mechanism predicted lunar and solar eclipses on the basis of Babylonian arithmetic progression cycles The inscriptions support suggestions of mechanical display of planetary positions now lost In the second century BC Hipparchos developed a theory to explain the irregularities of the Moon s motion across the sky caused by its elliptic orbit We find a mechanical realization of this theory in the gearing of the mechanism revealing an unexpected degree of technical sophistication for the period URL http www nature com nature journal v444 n7119 abs nature05357 html DOI 10 1038 nature05357 Bookmark Search this post with Google Plus One Pinterest Attachment Size Main article submitted version August 2006 2 45 MB Supplementary notes submitted version August 2006 629 16 KB Login or register to post comments Copyright notice Submitted by Antikythera Mec on Sun 20 07 2008 17 08 The attachments are the author s versions of the accepted paper in
