Graphene Patent Applications On The Rise, China In The Lead
2013-01-16 05:32:25

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online A steep rise in the number of patents involving graphene, one of the thinnest, lightest, strongest and most conductive materials in the world, reveals a global race to harness the potential of this novel material. Graphene, which was identified only as recently as 2004, is harder than diamond, a single molecule thick, as flexible as rubber and much more conductive than copper, giving it tremendous potential for applications in...

Influence Of Black Carbon On Climate Change Larger Than Previously Estimated
2013-01-15 12:58:27

International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme Reducing diesel engine emissions would reduce warming Black carbon is the second largest man-made contributor to global warming and its influence on climate has been greatly underestimated, according to the first quantitative and comprehensive analysis of this issue. The landmark study published in the Journal of Geophysical Research-Atmospheres today says the direct influence of black carbon, or soot, on warming the climate could be about...

Strongest, Lightest Glass Nanofibres In The World Developed By Southampton Scientist
2013-01-10 12:30:07

University of Southampton The University of Southampton's Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC) is pioneering research into developing the strongest silica nanofibres in the world. Globally the quest has been on to find ultrahigh strength composites, leading ORC scientists to investigate light, ultrahigh strength nanowires that are not compromised by defects. Historically, carbon nanotubes were the strongest material available, but high strengths could only be measured in very short...

Jurassic Ecosystem
2013-01-09 06:26:57

Rayshell Clapper for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online According to Southern Methodist University paleontologists Timothy S. Myers, Louis L. Jacobs, and SMU sedimentary geologist Neil J. Tabor, the modern relationship between animals and vegetation is similar to millions of years ago. In their study, the SMU scientists used fossil soils from the Late Jurassic age gathered from locations where animal fossils were previously found to determine the levels of carbon isotopes. The team...

Scientists Find Oldest Fossils On Earth
2013-01-02 10:32:42

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online In a sun-scorched region of Western Australia known as Pilbara, a team of American and Australian paleobiologists believe they have located the oldest known evidence of life on Earth. The ancient bacterial fossils have been dated as 3.49 billion years old, only about a billion years after scientists estimate the Earth was formed. “It´s not just finding this stuff that´s interesting,” said Alan Decho, a...

Evidence Found That Exploding Star Gave Birth To Solar System
2012-12-17 15:00:11

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online University of Chicago researchers wrote in the journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters that they found the radioactive isotope iron 60 low in abundance, and well mixed in solar system material, leading to the notion that the force of an exploding star prompted the formation of the Solar System. Scientists look for remnants of stellar explosions in meteorites to help determine the conditions under which the solar system...

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,...
