More Galactic Gas In Milky Way Than We Thought
2013-06-11 14:31:02

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The building blocks of stars, clouds of molecular gases, are strewn across the Milky Way, and a new survey from the European Space Agency (ESA) and NASA has found that scientists have been underestimating the amount of gas in the galaxy by about one-third. According to a new report in journal Astronomy and Astrophysics, the discovery was made possible by the orbiting Hershel Space Observatory, a joint venture between the two space...

H2O Reveals New Secret

Carnegie Institution Using revolutionary new techniques, a team led by Carnegie's Malcolm Guthrie has made a striking discovery about how ice behaves under pressure, changing ideas that date back almost 50 years. Their findings could alter our understanding of how the water molecule responds to conditions found deep within planets and could have implications for energy science. Their work is published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. When water freezes into ice,...

Chemical Reaction Could Provide Energy For Martian Microbes

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Previous research has shown how rock-water reactions can produce hydrogen when temperatures are far too hot for living things to survive, such as near hydrothermal vent systems on the ocean floor. However, a new study in Nature Geoscience reports that the same hydrogen-producing reaction can also occur at more hospitable temperatures. "Water-rock reactions that produce hydrogen gas are thought to have been one of the earliest sources...

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...

Researchers have engineered a strain of electricity-producing bacteria that can grow using hydrogen gas as its sole electron donor and carbon dioxide as its sole source of carbon. Researchers at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst report their findings at the 113th General Meeting of the American Society for Microbiology. "This represents the first result of current production solely on hydrogen," says Amit Kumar, a researcher on the study who, along with his co-authors are part of...

Researchers at the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology have successfully split water molecules during multiple thermochemical cycles at low temperatures and seek to create sustainable hydrogen energy with their process at still lower temperatures. Rapid City, SD (PRWEB) April 24, 2013 South Dakota School of Mines & Technology researchers have successfully split water molecules during multiple thermochemical cycles at low temperatures, sparking hope that sustainable hydrogen...

Astatine is a radioactive chemical element. The symbol for Astatine is At and its atomic number is 85. Astatine is the heaviest halogen discovered. It was first produced by Dale R. Corson, Kenneth Ross Mackenzie, and Emilio Segrè in 1940. Although astatine is produced by radioactive decay in nature, it is typically found only in miniscule amounts due to its short half-life (the time it takes for one half of the atoms of a given radioactive substance to decay or disintegrate). Trace amounts...
