Christophe Arviset is the Head of the Data and Engineering Division at ESA’s European Space Astronomy Centre (ESAC). The European Space Agency’s (ESA) current mission Gaia and upcoming one Euclid will generate massive amounts of astronomical data to be made freely available on-line through powerful data management systems. This big data era brings a change of paradigm and associated big challenges for building these missions’ archives. The current use case of “bring the data to the user” is being replaced by the new concept of “bring the user to the data”. This new generation of science archives is transforming into science exploitation and collaborative platforms, where the users can send her/his code to the data, run it on computing and storage services provided directly by the archive (where the data reside), and easily share all this with other scientists they’re collaborating with.

Sentio is the new company name making Andromium OS "Android Continuum" and their SuperBook Lapdock project that has collected $2.9 Million on Kickstarter. This DisplayLink Powered Lapdock is a laptop dock that can connect to any Android phone that has USB OTG, it can connect over USB Type C or Micro USB and offers a desktop experience with trackpad and Keyboard. The lapdock relies on Andromium OS to provide this desktop experience. It is not confirmed yet (as far as I know) how many apps will be supported to run as multi-window, they are not changing the Android firmware, they run Andromium OS as just an app. The display is 11.6" (HD or FullHD) and offers 8 hours of battery life. The Price is to be $100 dollars and up after they start shipping to their backers on Kickstarter.
Here's a new sample I filmed using the Panasonic GH5 ($1998 body-only) with the 12-60 Leica Lens ($998) with Kevin Walker of Panasonic UK featuring some of the top lenses that are available for the Panasonic GH5 among many other lens choices that are available for the micro four thirds standard. These include the new 8-18mm wide angle lens ($1099) that I also filmed a sample and Interview with here, the 42.5mm Leica f1.2 Nocticron lens ($1398) which features advanced sharpness and bokeh for amazing photography, portraits or no-so-wide film making, the Leica 12-60mm (which is the one I film this sample with) and the Lumix 12-35 mark2 lens ($998 http://amzn.to/2pSLxbQ), the last two are ones that feature Panasonic's Dual IS 2 image stabilization where the sensor and the lens work together for maximum stability for video and photography. The 42.5mm does feature Dual IS 1 which is perhaps not as advanced as the new Dual IS 2, lacking some certain chip or hardware features that enables Dual IS 2.

Sample video at 4K50p filmed using the new Panasonic GH5 ($1998 body-only) with the Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 8-18mm f/2.8-4 ASPH wide-angle lens ($1099), capturing the sound using my new Saramonic UWMIC9 dual UHF wireless lavs to single receiver (first time I use it, hopefully the sound levels are ok) ($399). Using Panasonic GH5's intelligent auto mode, I am trying to show off some of the quality of this wide angle lens for my style of handheld video-blogging, filming at the Wex Photographic London Lens Show with Kevin Walker of Panasonic UK. Last month, I also filmed with him using the GH5 and the Leica 12-60mm at the Photography Show and I also just filmed a new video with him using the 12-60 Leica lens which I will upload and publish later today, check back for that. This 8-18mm lens doesn't have Dual IS 2 in-lens image stabilization but the Panasonic GH5 has such good in-sensor stabilization that it can stabilize any lens that you put on it and this angle being so wide, it might need in-lens stabilization to look stable when used for video. The wide angle is useful for wide angle photography for architecture, landscapes, streets, groups of people and more. According to Panasonic, the Leica 8-18mm lens uses a series of low dispersion and aspherical elements to realize sharp and clear imagery with controlled fringing and aberrations, and a Nano Surface Coating also helps to minimize flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color accuracy. The durable metal lens body is splash, dust, and freezeproof and it has their fast 240fps autofocus drive for a hopefully good auto-focus performance.
