A new study from the University of Michigan reveals that a common test currently used to determine mercury exposure from dental amalgam fillings may significantly overestimate the amount of toxic metal released from fillings.
After spending nearly a year in lunar orbit studying the moon’s interior, two NASA spacecraft, known as GRAIL A (Ebb) and GRAIL B (Flow), were ordered to embark on a final mission that would hopefully give scientists one last bit of data about the moon’s composition.
On March 17, 2013, MESSENGER successfully completed its year-long first extended mission in orbit about Mercury, building on the groundbreaking scientific results from its earlier primary mission.
Several new, high-resolution images of Mercury were among the data obtained by NASA’s Mercury Surface, Space Environment, Geochemistry, and Ranging (MESSENGER) satellite and released by the US space agency on Friday.
From a news release by NASA, dated February 28, 2013, the Birth of a Planet was observed from Earth through the Hubble Telescope that possibly showed a proto planet being born from a star.

Scientists analyzing data from NASA's MESSENGER spacecraft say that Mercury once harbored an ancient magma ocean.
H-B Instrument has been providing well made, accurate thermometers, hydrometers and related products for 110 years, yet have evolved with the times by phasing out mercury thermometers and offering
Mercury automobiles was a brand of vehicles as a subsidy of the Ford Motor Company. It was established by the Edsel Ford in 1938. The Mercury brand was a luxury vehicle placed between the high end Ford and the base Lincoln models. In 1945, Mercury became half of the Lincoln division until it was phased out in 2011. The last Mercury produced was a Grand Marquis which left the assembly line on January 4, 2011. From 1958 to 1960, Edsel brand models were part of the Lincoln-Mercury group. The...
The Lincoln Motor Company was founded in 1917 by Henry M. Leland and became a subsidiary of Ford in 1922.

The MKS and MKZ sedans; MKT, MKX and MKC CUVs; and the Navigator and Navigator L SUVs. Leland was a former manager of GM’s Cadillac division who formed the company with his son Wilfred. The company was named after Abraham Lincoln,...
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...
Mercury (element) Mercury, also called quicksilver, is a chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol Hg (from the Greek hydrargyrum, for watery (or liquid) silver) and atomic number 80. A heavy, silvery, transition metal, mercury is one of only two elements that are liquid at room temperature (the other is bromine). Mercury is used in thermometers, barometers and other scientific apparatuses. Mercury is mostly obtained by reduction from the mineral cinnabar. Notable...
Positional Astronomy -- Positional astronomy is the study of the positions of celestial objects. This is the oldest branch of astronomy and dates back to antiquity. Observations of celestial objects are important for religious and astrological purposes, as well as for timekeeping. Ancient structures associated with positional astronomy include: -- Chichn Itz -- The Medicine Wheel -- The Pyramids -- Stonehenge -- The Temple of the Sun The unaided human eye can...
