Guinness Record: World’s Smallest Jet Engine

By Tracy Kelly /

During the Sumatra earthquake in December 2004, followed by a deadly tsunami, experts were surprised by the magnitude of the sliding plates on each other: more than 7.5 minutes. In the same region in October 2010, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake occurred off the coast of Sumatra in the shallowest part of the subduction zone, where […]

Convergence zones are another type of boundary: this is the subduction zone where tectonic plate topped with an oceanic crust sinks beneath a continent. The Pacific Rim is surrounded by subduction zone at the origin of volcanoes that form the famous Pacific Ring of Fire. Finally, in some places, two tectonic plates slide abutting one […]

Another promising strategy is the development of the self-powered micro-missiles with enzymes as catalysts. These consist of rolled titanium-gold layer and the enzyme catalase, which is common in animal cells and hydrogen peroxide decomposes into oxygen and water very effectively. Thus the driving force is increased significantly so that will be ten times higher speeds […]

Blackbird Dying:Tropical Usutu Virus Kills Birds

By Tracy Kelly /

This new method combines actually two types of technology used to produce electricity: a microbial fuel cell and a reverse electrodialysis system. Two methods inefficient because with a yield too low or too high manufacturing cost. But by associating it can overcome the limitations of individual technologies, said Bruce E. Logan, professor of environmental engineering. […]

Danger To Prey Around Protected Areas

By Tracy Kelly /

These refuges attract game but also, at their periphery, human predators, which can make these reservations riskier for animals than it seems.   Protected areas where animals can live free of human-induced risks are they effective? Not necessarily meet a French-Swiss team which includes researchers from the Laboratory of Alpine Ecology. To assess their role […]
