  • Defects found at China nuclear reactor project      Wed, 13 Dec 2017 05:30:45 -0500

    Defects found at China nuclear reactor projectDefects were found in equipment for a third-generation nuclear reactor under construction in southern China with the problematic parts being replaced, the state-owned China General Nuclear Power Group (CGN) said Wednesday. The issue concerned equipment used in one of two new European Pressurised Reactors (EPR), large units designed to offer improved power and safety. With EPRs in Finland and France facing setbacks, the Chinese Taishan 1 and 2 are on track to become the first working reactors of their kind in the world.

  • Latest Monsanto GMO seeds raises worries of monopoly      Thu, 14 Dec 2017 00:54:31 -0500

    Latest Monsanto GMO seeds raises worries of monopolyThe rapid growth of Monsanto's new GMO seeds resistant to the controversial herbicide dicamba has revived worries about the company's stranglehold over farming during a period of industry consolidation. Long a producer of dicamba, Monsanto last year introduced genetically-modified cotton and soybean seeds that can resist the weed killer. The products took off, amassing more than 20 percent of US soybean fields and 50 percent of US cotton fields in just two years, according to Monsanto data.

The uncrewed, straight-up, straight-down trip was conducted at Blue Origin’s testing ground in West Texas. The video that Bezos included with his tweet showed the New Shepard blasting off and rising above a wide-open spread of ranchland.

  • Greek Yogurt Waste Could Be Used In Jet Fuel And Livestock Feed      Wed, 13 Dec 2017 12:25:54 -0500

    Greek Yogurt Waste Could Be Used In Jet Fuel And Livestock FeedYour Greek yogurt creates food waste that could one day be used in jet fuel. A process that mixes this waste with thousands of species of bacteria and some heat transforms the whey into a new material called bio-oil, which could be used in biofuels or additives in livestock feed. A study published in Joule on Wednesday details how thousands of bacteria feed on the leftovers from making Greek yogurt and then turn it into caproic acid and caprylic acid—or bio-oil.

  • Brand new Pacific island is a whole lot like Mars, and scientists are excited      Tue, 12 Dec 2017 11:48:55 -0500

    Brand new Pacific island is a whole lot like Mars, and scientists are excited

    It's not often that a whole new chunk of land just comes jutting out of the ocean, but that's just what happened with a new island in the South Pacific. A large undersea volcano blew its top in late 2014, shooting rock and ash skyward, and once everything calmed down an entirely new island had been formed. Now, NASA is looking at the newly formed landmass for possible hints at how the landscape of Mars behaved billions of years ago.

    The new island, which is being referred to by the unofficial name Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha'apai, didn't seem to have a bright future when it first emerged in the wake of the volcano's fury, but researchers now believe it actually might stick around for quite a while. New data suggests it might even last as long as 30 years.

    "Everything we learn about what we see on Mars is based on the experience of interpreting Earth phenomena," Jim Garvin of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center explains. "We think there were eruptions on Mars at a time when there were areas of persistent surface water. We may be able to use this new Tongan island and its evolution as a way of testing whether any of those represented an oceanic environment or ephemeral lake environment."

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hds1OBxVg4s

    Heat, liquid water, and a suitable atmosphere are thought to be some of the most crucial ingredients for life as we know it. If Mars was once dominated by an ocean, and if that ocean experienced volcanic activity as ours do here on Earth, that's very good news for anyone who dreams of one day hearing that life did exist on Mars.

    In its present state, the island is essentially a huge pile of volcanic ash and rock which is slowly eroding into the ocean from which it was born. Storms and wave activity have already pushed lots of material back underwater, but a large portion still remains. On Mars, despite billions of years of wind erosion and impacts from space rocks and debris, similar volcanic features still remain, and the newly born island is helping to inform astronomers about what the martian surface may have looked like a long time ago.
