UPS relies heavily on telematics, as does GM with OnStar. The federal government could do a better job of capitalizing on the science. So he started thinking about one of the largest mobile networks on Earth: the post office.
Near-Earth asteroids aren’t all that rare, but today two researchers at Armagh Observatory in Northern Ireland say they’ve found an extremely rare near-Earth object in an orbit very similar to Earth’s.
When Sir Richard Branson unveiled the Virgin Oceanic submarine, he noted that "More men have been to the moon than have been down further [underwater] than 20,000 feet." To that end, he and explorer pal will take the submarine to the deepest trenches
When it comes to protecting themselves from environmental health threats, many Americans have put their trust in the Environmental Protection Agency. Unfortunately, despite the enormous chunk of funding it receives – it requested $10.5 billion dollaRead Letter
But we face another rise in cost of a resource more important that gasoline! That resource? You guessed it! Water! At some point, we cannot maintain water supplies for our growing cities.
The unknown risks of "geoengineering" — in this case, tweaking Earth's climate by dimming the skies — left many uneasy. If we could experiment with the atmosphere and literally play God, it's very tempting to a scientist," said earth scientist Richar
Renewable energy is often intermittent and unreliable, but with the right storage technology, it can become a substitute for baseline power.
Under mounting pressure from scientists that reject the politically popularized man-made global warming and climate models—the Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) theory—the American space agency NASA has admitted that all past warming trends were dri
Coverup and denial in Japan
Awareness of Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development is racing across the nation as citizens in community after community are learning what their city planners are actually up to.
I was outdoors and I was checking out the sky and the air quality looked very poor. My sister had told me in the morning that she saw "dry rain" coming down...I looked and I saw lots of white stuff in the air. But I wasn't prepared for what my camera
HAARP technology may have caused Japan's earthquake
Kukla has been warning of the possibility of new Ice Age for some time, and the cycle which he and other scientists believe may drive the process of climate change has been observed since at least the 1920s. Eleven years ago, Kukla gave a brief summa
What in the world do they WANT from us - now the environmentalists are going after ALTERNATIVE energy. They leave us NO solution!
UPDATE: Radioactive Iodine-131 in Pennsylvania rainwater sample 3300% above federal drinking water standard
Future petroleum-free plastic could be made from the ground-up bone and meat parts left over from the animal rendering process. It’s not dependent on fossil fuel, and it’s perhaps less awful than throwing all of this offal into landfills
By looking to the neural networks of spiders, crabs, lobsters, and worms, European researchers are building better gait-governing systems for robots. Mimicking the rhythmic nerve impulses of some invertebrates
Nuclear disaster spinning out of control
A practical artificial leaf that can turn sunlight and water into energy as efficiently as the real thing has long been a Holy Grail of chemistry, and researchers at MIT may have finally done it.
It's getting worse, not better
A sleepy New Jersey town has popped onto people's radar screens because it has the oldest running nuclear power plant in the United States -- and, some say, the most dangerous.
Two weeks after the earthquake and tsunami, Japan's crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power complex continues to spread both radiation and distrust of nuclear power as the plant's situation lurches from hopeful to harrowing and back again.
After the crisis in Japan, some experts have warned that stored fuel could pose a large danger in terrorists attacks
Unconfirmed reports are circulating of a new, very large oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico about 20 miles from the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster There are reports that the Coast Guard is investigating a new, very large oil spill in the Gulf of Mexic
Coverup and denial in Japan and West
Millions will die from painful cancers
The Caribbean is no stranger to seismic natural disaster, and after last week’s quake and devastation in Japan authorities in 33 Caribbean states don’t need to be told twice that it could happen there too.
Japanese officials conceded today they might have to entomb the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in a sarcophagus of sand or concrete in order to contain the radiation
Ionizing radiation—the kind that minerals, atom bombs and nuclear reactors emit—does one main thing to the human body: it weakens and breaks up DNA, either damaging cells enough to kill them or causing mutation in ways that may lead to cancer.
Largely absent from most mainstream media reports on the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster is the fact that a highly-dangerous “mixed-oxide” (MOX) fuel in present in six percent of the fuel rods at the plant’s Unit 3 reactor.
