Diamonds  On Antarctica
2013-12-17 15:37:20

[ Watch the Video: Traces Of Diamonds Found In Antarctica ] Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers working in Antarctica have announced the discovery of kimberlite deposits on the frozen continent. Kimberlites are rocks known for their propensity to contain diamonds. The discovery is not expected to set off a diamond rush anytime soon, however, as an international treaty has banned mining on Antarctica until 2041. However, it does make a potential extension...

"Portable generators are designed to thrive during ice and snow storm season, when it's more likely power outages will abruptly put families in the dark," said Patty Lavelle, Representative for PGMA. "Unit generators can be...

Engineers Show How To Optimize Carbon Nanotube Arrays For Use In Hot Spots
2013-12-03 13:11:10

Stanford School of Engineering Experimental evidence and computer simulations suggest how to grow structures with the best trade offs between 3 desired characteristics: strength, flexibility and the ability to dissipate heat When engineers design devices, they must often join together two materials that expand and contract at different rates as temperatures change. Such thermal differences can cause problems if, for instance, a semiconductor chip is plugged into a socket that can't...

Amber Earth's Atmosphere

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Elevated levels of oxygen in the atmosphere may have caused dinosaurs, insects and other organisms to grow to gigantic sizes millions of years ago, according to prevailing theories. If a new study from scientists at the Universities of Kansas and Alberta is correct, then the atmosphere of the Cretaceous had a relatively low oxygen content – making the high-oxygen theories severely flawed. “We do not want to negate the influence...

Ocean Acidification
2013-04-01 10:32:20

Ocean acidification is the name that was given to the ongoing decrease in the pH of Earth’s oceans, a cause of the uptake of anthropogenic carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. About 30 to 40 percent of the carbon dioxide that is released by humans into the atmosphere dissolves into the lakes, oceans, and rivers. To maintain the chemical equilibrium, some of it reacts with the water to create carbonic acid. Some of these extra carbonic acid molecules react with a water molecule to provide a...

Graphite (named by Abraham Gottlob Werner in 1789, from the Greek γραφειν: "to draw/write", for its use in pencils) is one of the allotropes of carbon. Unlike diamond, graphite is a conductor, and can be used, for instance, as the material in the electrodes of an electrical arc lamp. Occurrence Associated minerals include: quartz, calcite, micas, iron meteorites and tourmalines. Notable occurrences include New York and Texas in the USA, Russia, Mexico, Greenland,...
