Ozone can kill any virus or bacteria known to man. Uxbridge, MA (PRWEB) January 23, 2013 Better Rest Solutions´ new product,SoClean utilizes ozone to sanitize CPAP Equipment. Discussions have been rising on the safety of home-use of ozone for sanitization. Activated oxygen or “ozone” is a natural molecule that is formed when a third atom of oxygen is introduced into the common two-atom molecule that makes up the air we breathe. This molecule becomes...

Air Standards And Climate Could Benefit From NASA Study
2013-01-17 10:20:15

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory A new NASA-led study finds that when it comes to combating global warming caused by emissions of ozone-forming chemicals, location matters. Ozone is both a major air pollutant with known adverse health effects and a greenhouse gas that traps heat from escaping Earth's atmosphere. Scientists and policy analysts are interested in learning how curbing the emissions of these chemicals can improve human health and also help mitigate climate change....

Ozone Depletion Over Ocean Caused By Sea Surface Iodine

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The earth´s ozone layer is critical for protecting life from damaging UV light from the sun. In the late 1970s scientists discovered for the first time that this precious barrier between life and death was depleting, and at a fairly consistent rate. After years of study, the man-made cause of the depletion–mainly seen in the polar regions–was determined to hail from chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), which were found...

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online NASA has announced plans to send an unmanned, remotely-controlled research vehicle into the upper atmosphere in order to find out what impact climate change is having on our planet. The program, which has been christened the Airborne Tropical Tropopause Experiment (ATTREX), will utilize instruments on board a long-range Global Hawk aircraft to collect measurements above the tropical Pacific Ocean, the US space agency explained....

Atlantis launched from Kennedy Space Center on November 3, 1994 at 11:59 AM EST and landed at Edwards AFB on November 14 at 7:33 AM PST. The shuttle orbited 174 times at an altitude of 164 nautical miles at an inclination of 57 degrees and travelled 4.5 million miles. The mission lasted 10 days, 22 hours, 34 minutes, and 2 seconds. This mission further advanced efforts to collect data about sun's energy output, chemical makeup of the Earth's middle atmosphere, and how these factors affect...

Earth's Atmosphere

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...
