rapidly emerging market space of airships for the military and homeland defense arenas," said Gary Ervin, corporate vice president and president of Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems sector.
The Adventures of Aggie the Traveling Agrobacterium is a narrated slide show outlining the genetic engineering process and the danger that it poses in a simple and fun, easy to understand format for both adults and children.
"More oil could leak than before, because the field is being drilled into again," says Fred Aminzadeh, a geophysicist at the University of Southern California. "In the worst case, we would suddenly be dealing with two spills, and we'd have twice the
Leak estimates have gone from 1,000 barrels a day to 5,000 bbl to 25,000 bbl to 60,000 bbl. While many take this as evidence of a BP coverup, it could also be that the hole is getting bigger.
“We are elated that Fluidigm’s reusable bio-chip can contribute to improving the food supply and bring the benefits of genetic analysis and testing to AgBio scientists and producers around the globe,” said Gajus Worthington, president and chief execu
An organic molecule that has been found to be effective in making silicon-based electronics may be viable for building electronics on sheets of carbon only a single molecule thick. Researchers at the Max Plank Institute for Metals Research in Stuttga
Carbon dioxide forms a clathrate with water spontaneously at more than 30 bar pressure and less than 80 degrees Celcius temperature. The new multipass solution developed by the team for separating and cleaning the clathrate crystals holds the key to
LPP plans to then increase the pulse rate to 60 pulses per seconds. It would be producing 1.8 million joules per second. A one megawatt generator produces one million joules per second. (a watt is a joule/ second) LPP was also trying to get
Plastic molecules made to mimic the body’s natural disease-fighters and injected into living animals behaved like antibodies, latching onto foreign molecules and launching an attack against them in the bloodstream. The breakthrough is a step towar
Yeast and worms can survive hypothermia if they are first subjected to extreme oxygen deprivation, a new study finds. The results could explain a long-held mystery as to how humans can be brought back to life after "freezing to death," the scienti
A bacteria that lives in hot springs in Japan may help solve one of the mysteries of the early evolution of complex organisms, according to a study publishing next week in PLoS Biology. It may also be the key to 21st century biofuel production.
Surprisingly, the principles that brought to such a radical performance improvement are very simple, and consist of covering standard heat conducting materials — such as copper and aluminum — with a thin strate of zinc oxide. The coating develops a m
Let me understand better what you’re saying. If that is true that it is coming up form that seabed, even the relief well won’t be the final solution to cap this thing. That means that we’ve got oil gushing up at disparate places along the ocean floor
using a technique called "one-bit time reversal," allowed the team to achieve 46 dB of amplification. Because decibels are represented on a logarithmic scale, that corresponds to amplification of the original signal by a factor of more than 10,000.
A little less than double the experimental current (amperage) with a sufficiently strong magnetic field will achieve breakeven. If Lawrenceville Plasma Physics (LPP) achieves full success, then a Focus Fusion reactor would produce electricity v
"The bottom line is we have this new technology which is extremely effective,” said Goyal. “This study involved patients with large strokes associated with much higher levels of disability and death and we have the potential to be able to give them
Appearing on the Alex Jones Show on June 10, 2010, paster Lindsey Williams reveals the real threat posed by the leak. The Obama administration and BP are doing everything they can to hide the ominous truth. You must share this video...
Anderson Cooper has been on top of this disaster for weeks, and he does a good job covering the story. Here he interviews an expert in the area of flow rates. The bottom line from the expert is that we have been lied to from day one.
Dr. Morrison provided compelling evidence in the 1960s that heart and blood vessel disease could be reversed and prevented with natural molecules, particularly chondroitin sulfate. This was over 20 years prior to the advent of the first cholesterol-r
What you are about to read, is what the scientists in the United States are not allowed to tell you in great fear of the Obama administration.
It conjures up a rather frightening vision of a future where intelligent robots work in packs without the need for human intervention. But scientists are developing robots which can 'dock' with each other and fly together in a swarm.
"There's no authentic data to prove her age but judging from her statements and the age of her adopted daughter, who's now 108 years old, it's difficult to doubt it," statistics bureau official Jhonny Sardjono said Monday.
Video. You Can Smell The Oil From A Helicopter And Birds Are Frying!
If BP has discovered the mother of all fields with pressures so enormous, they can’t be controlled with modern technology, a possibility which some geologists admit, then more huge leaks will spring and the nuclear option will be the only one left.
But man-made systems that exist today are very inefficient and often require additional use of sacrificial chemical agents. In this context, it is important to establish new mechanisms by which water splitting can take place. Now, a unique approac
y, have discovered the strategic extraction of hydrogen atoms from a two-dimensional sheet of graphane naturally opens up spaces of pure graphene that look - and act - like quantum dots.
the primary launch services provider to the US Government, announced the first successful demonstration of XCOR's long life, high performance piston pump technology with liquid hydrogen.
Those crazy lab rats at MIT are attempting to radically diminish the cost of producing sophisticated nanotech cathodes and anodes by enlisting viruses to do the hard work for them.
Birds stayed at each site from one to 12 days, with the average being about four days. There was no difference in how long the thrushes stayed across the seven sites.
Energy giant BP told Canadian regulators that relief wells are an "after-the-fact tactic" in controlling oil well blowouts in March, less than a month before the catastrophic spill in the Gulf of Mexico — which the company hopes to stop by drilling
