That is AWESOME, blessingx! I am definitely using that next year in my class. Thanks000-dancing.gif

Dusty, the Appalachians are pretty dominant in that area. Not that tornadoes are stopped dead in their tracks by mountains (because many have tracked into the southern Appalachians), the area around WV disrupts the ingredients necessary for tornado formation.

That and tornados are repelled by banjo music.

In that region, tornados tend to follow the Blue Ridge Mountains and Shenandoah River, which as we all know, have only marginal (mostly folklore) associations with West Virginia and would seem to more appropriately describe western Virginia.

A cat scanner. The whole inside section rotates about 2 rps.

MRI are just giant superconducting magnet. Nothing inside but a coil

of wire and lots of liquid helium.

There is a reason these things are over $2M

Upper left with the big high voltage lead is the xray tube.

Lower right with the 5 fans is the detector module.

upper right with the warning sign is the xray power supply,

typically 60kv at about 500ma.
