2014-08-07 03:05:46

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Although the days of odd behavior among hat makers are a thing of the past, the dangers mercury poses to humans and the environment persist today. Mercury is a naturally occurring element as well as a by-product of such distinctly human enterprises as burning coal and making cement. Estimates of "bioavailable" mercury—forms of the element that can be taken up by animals and humans—play an important role in everything from drafting an...

MESSENGER at Mercury

NASA Ten years ago, on August 3, 2004, NASA’s MESSENGER (MErcury Surface, Space ENvironment, GEochemistry, and Ranging) spacecraft blasted off from Cape Canaveral, Florida, for a risky mission that would take the small satellite dangerously close to Mercury’s surface, paving the way for an ambitious study of the planet closest to the Sun. The spacecraft traveled 4.9 billion miles (7.9 billion kilometers) — a journey that included 15 trips around the Sun and flybys of Earth once,...

Measurements from NASA's Messenger spacecraft have revealed that Mercury's magnetic field is approximately three times stronger at its northern hemisphere than its southern one. In the current research,...

A mercury arc valve converts high-voltage or high-current alternating current into direct current. It is an electrical rectifier often used to provide power for industrial motors, electric railways, streetcars, and electric locomotives. Peter Cooper Hewitt, in 1902, invented the mercury arc rectifier. It was further developed by researchers throughout the 1920s and 1930s. Prior to solid-state devices, mercury arc rectifiers were one of the more efficient rectifiers. Silicon diode and...
