2013-08-28 07:25:40

NASA The Rim Fire burning in and near Yosemite National Park in California continues to grow and move its way up in the record books. As of Aug. 27, CAL FIRE (California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection) reports that the fire, which started Aug. 17, had consumed nearly 180,000 acres, making it the seventh largest wildfire in California’s recorded history. The fire is one of 10 active major wildfires burning across California as of Aug. 27. New satellite images from NASA’s...

"Carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning is a significant U.S. health problem, responsible for approximately 500 accidental deaths annually, and a risk of 18 percent to 35 percent for cognitive brain injury 1 year after poisoning. Most morbidity and mortality from CO poisoning is believed to be preventable through public education and CO alarm use. States have been enacting legislation mandating residential CO alarm installation. However, as of December 2012, 10 of the 25 states with statutes...

Scientists Develop Breathalyzer That Can ‘Smell’ Infection
2013-08-01 17:32:16

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online No longer the sole the domain of law enforcement, breathalyzers are being used more and more by scientists who want a faster, less invasive way to assess patients. According to a new report in the open-access journal PLOS ONE, researchers from University of California, Irvine have developed breathalyzer technology capable of determining the severity of bacterial and other infections. In the study, the California researchers worked...

TW Hydrae’s Snow Line Offers Insight Into Solar System Formation
2013-07-18 18:16:42

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Astronomers at the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) telescope have announced the discovery of a distant solar system's "snow line" about 175 light years away, according to a report in Science Express. On Earth, a snow line can be seen at high altitudes, where a mountain's snowcap ends. The concept is similar in space, where a snow line forms at a certain distance from a star. Water, which has one of highest freezing...

New Method For Producing Clean Hydrogen Developed
2013-05-22 12:11:39

Duke University Duke University engineers have developed a novel method for producing clean hydrogen, which could prove essential to weaning society off of fossil fuels and their environmental implications. While hydrogen is ubiquitous in the environment, producing and collecting molecular hydrogen for transportation and industrial uses is expensive and complicated. Just as importantly, a byproduct of most current methods of producing hydrogen is carbon monoxide, which is toxic to...
