Raabjerg Mile the Danish Desert
by Hans Nyberg
Raabjerg mile is a large mobile sand dune in the area south of Skagen in Denmark. During earlier centuries the intensive usage of the dune areas, lead to an increased sand drift in some parts of Denmark. Since the 1800 this has been controlled by large plantations in the dunes.
This large dune has been left to enable later generations to understand the sanddrift catastrophe in this areas.
The dune covers 1 x 2 km and is at its highest point approximately 35 m. It is now 5 km from the west coast and moves with a speed of 15 m a year against the east coast.

Inside Dr. Rileys Mouth
Dr. John Riley is an Associate Professor of physics at the University of South Carolina Spartanburg. His present research interests include the development of multimedia physics pedagogy and archaeoastronomy.
Recently he was at his dentist and he got his teeth x-rayed using a panoramic x-ray machine.
One of Dr. Rileys interests is also the use of Quicktime VR and he got the idea of making a QTVR movie of the image.
This X-ray was made using a Soredex Cranex panoramic x-ray machine at the office of Dr. Joseph K. Lever in Spartanburg, SC, USA. This machine places an x-ray source on one side of the head and film on the other. The source and film are rotated through 360° while the film is being exposed. You can see more information on this device at SOREDEX
Quicktime VR has for many years been used in medical multimedia presentations mostly as Object VR's where you can see for example skeleton parts from all sides.
