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...

Ozone Not Only Bad For Climate, But Also Bad For The Heart
2013-02-18 14:15:12

Peter Suciu for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Ever since the “ozone scare” that began in the 1970s, when it was reported that there was a hole in the ozone over the South Pole, there has been a great misunderstanding about ozone. In the past decade in fact it has only come out that ozone is actually not really good for people. Most recently researchers at Rice University in Houston have found a direct correlation between out-of-hospital cardiac arrests and levels...

Making Contact Between Metal And Carbon Compounds
2013-02-18 07:59:56

Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres Until now, however, it was practically impossible to accurately predict which molecules performed well on the job. They basically had to be identified by trial-and-error. Now, an international team of scientists around Dr. Georg Heimel and Prof. Norbert Koch from the HZB and the Humboldt University Berlin has unraveled the mystery of what these molecules have in common. Their discovery enables more focused improvements to contact layers...

Oxygen therapy is known as the administration of oxygen as a medical intervention. It is indicated in patients whose oxygen supply is compromised due to both acute and chronic health conditions and can be administered in many different ways. Oxygen therapy can be administered virtually wherever the patient is. Most commonly, oxygen is delivered to patients in an ambulance, hospital, or doctor’s office. These medical facilities carry oxygen in the form of a compressed gas. It is stored...

Geologic Clock With Events And Periods

The Paleoproterozoic is the first of three subdivisions of the Proterozoic Eon (occurring from 2.5 billion to 1.6 billion years ago (Ga). This period is marked by the first stabilization of the continents, and also when cyanobacteria--a type of bacteria that uses biochemical processes of photosynthesis to produce oxygen--evolved. Experts have found paleontological evidence that during at least part of the Paleoproterozoic era, about 1.8 Ga, the earth year was about 450 days long, with days...

Earth's Atmosphere
2004-10-19 04:45:44

Earth's Atmosphere -- Earth's atmosphere consists of nitrogen (78.1%) and oxygen (20.9%), with small amounts of argon (0.9%), carbon dioxide (variable, but around 0.035%), water vapor, and other gases. The atmosphere protects life on Earth by absorbing ultraviolet solar radiation and reducing temperature extremes between day and night. 75% of the atmosphere exists within 11km of the planetary surface. Temperature and the Atmospheric Layers The temperature of the Earth's atmosphere...

attercop
  • A spider.
  • Figuratively, a peevish, testy, ill-natured person.
