Cooking Up Our Solar System, What's The Recipe?
2013-02-21 05:05:42

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A research team from the University of California, San Diego is hoping to learn how our solar system evolved by studying the origins of different isotope ratios among the elements that make up today´s smorgasbord of planets, moons, comets, asteroids, and interplanetary ice and dust. The scientists are led by Mark Thiemens, Dean of the Division of Physical Sciences, who has worked on this problem for over three decades. Most...

The use of an electronic smelling system capable of discriminating which tomatoes, melons or other products have a more attractive aroma is a particularly valuable aid for agro-food firms. However, existing electronic noses do not "smell" in the same way depending on the laboratory conditions, and these conditions change throughout the day and from one day to another. In order to overcome these fluctuations, researchers from the Agro-Food Quality Improvement Group at the Universitat Jaume I...
