Moon's Water Supply Came From Earth, Not From Comet Impacts
2013-05-09 13:34:08

John P. Millis, Ph.D. for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Prior to the Apollo Moon missions, scientists conjectured that the Moon would be extremely dry, that even below the surface of the Magnificent Desolation little or no water would be present. But the rocks brought back by the lunar explorers revealed that the Moon, while still dry compared to Earth, contained a surprising amount of water. Furthermore, the composition of the Moon led scientists to the current Big Impact...

Quantum Smell May Exist
2013-01-28 19:48:08

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online The majority of the scientific community has embraced the idea of different smells being based on the olfactory receptors´ ability to detect various shapes of odor molecules. However, a new study in the open access journal PLOS ONE has given credence to a less popular theory; that the sense of smell is based on the molecules´ different vibrations, not their shapes. The idea of a quantum, or vibration, basis for...

Sandia Nuclear Fusion Concept Undergoes Dry-Run Testing
2012-09-18 10:11:04

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers at the Sandia National Laboratories have completed successful preliminary tests on magnetically imploded tubes called liners, which are intended to help produce controlled nuclear fusion at scientific "break-even" energies or better within the next few years. The results of this research will be published in Physical Review Letters (PRL). Scientific break-even is one of the major performance measurements in fusion energy...

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online New research suggests that meteorites, and their parent asteroids, are most-likely the sources of Earth's water. Scientists have believed that comets, or a primitive meteorite called carbonaceous chondrites, were the sources of earth Earth's volatile elements, including hydrogen, nitrogen, and carbon. Having an understanding of where these volatiles came from is crucial when determining the source of water and life on the planet....

For their look into the nanoworld, the Jlich researchers used a scanning tunneling microscope. Its thin metal tip scans the specimen surface like the needle of a record player and registers the atomic irregularities and differences of approximately one nanometer (a billionth of a millimeter) with minuscule electric currents. However, even though the tip of the microscope only has the width of an atom, it has not been able so far to take a look inside molecules."In order to increase the...

  • The navel or umbilicus.
  • In Greek archaeology: A central boss, as on a shield, a bowl, etc.
  • A sacred stone in the temple of Apollo at Delphi, believed by the Greeks to mark the 'navel' or exact center-point of the earth.
'Omphalos' comes from the ancient Greek.
