Maglev
2014-04-11 09:17:26

Maglev is a vehicle propulsion system that uses magnetic levitation to move a vehicle with magnets instead of wheels. The vehicle hovers a short distance above the guide way by magnets and also uses the magnets for motion. The operation of this system is quite and maintains less friction for improved acceleration and deceleration. Weather does not affect the performance of the vehicle. Currently, some trains make use of the Maglev system, but vacuum tube trains could allow a Maglev system...

Flavr Savr
2013-10-03 09:43:32

Flavr Savr, also known as CGN-89564, a genetically modified tomato, was the first commercially grown genetically engineered food to be granted a license for human consumption. It was produced by the Californian company Calgene, and submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 1992. On May 18, 1994, the FDA completed its evaluation of the Flavr Savr tomato and the usage of APH(3’)II, concluding that the tomato “is as safe as tomatoes bred by conventional means” and “that the...

Roundup Ready Soybean
2013-10-02 13:09:21

Roundup Ready Soybean, GTS 40-3-2, is a genetically engineered variety of glyphosate-resistant soybeans created by Monsanto. Glyphosate kills plants by obstructing the synthesis of the essential amino acids phenylaline, tyrosine, and tryptophan. These amino acids are referred to as “essential” due to the fact that animals cannot make them; only plants and micro-organisms can make them and animals acquire them by consuming plants. Plants and microorganisms make these amino acids with...
