Aiming to build a system that excavates the Red Planet’s surface for genetic material, a team of MIT engineers has just successfully put a DNA-sequencing microchip through rigorous radiation trials.
The radioactive element astatine, the name of which is derived from the Greek word for 'instability,' is so rare on earth that it has not yet been investigated to any greater extent and, as a consequence, very little is known about it.
Today, Dade Moeller Health Group, LLC, a subsidiary of radiation protection company Dade Moeller, announced a formal partnership with medical physics firm Physics Services Integrated (PSI) headquartered
The global Medical Radiation Detection Market for medical applications in this report is segmented into two categories, namely, detection and monitoring, and radiation safety. (PRWEB)
This report studies the global Radiation Detection, Monitoring and Safety Market for nuclear power plants, homeland security & defense and the manufacturing industry over the forecast period
A new report by an independent task force commissioned by the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM), has found that people absorb less radiation from airport X-ray backscatter scanner than they do while standing in line waiting for the scan itself.
Nuclear fallout, or just simply fallout, known also as Black Rain, is the residual radioactive material that is propelled into the upper atmosphere after a nuclear black or a nuclear reaction that is conducted in an unshielded facility. It is so called because it "fall out" of the sky after the explosion and the shock wave have passed. It most commonly refers to the radioactive dust and ash that is created when a nuclear weapon explodes, but such dust can also come from a damaged nuclear...
Solar Radiation -- Solar radiation is radiant energy emitted by the sun due to nuclear fusion reactions. Fusion is the process whereby stars produce huge quantities of energy from the fusion of hydrogen or helium, in one of the most efficient processes of energy generation. The radiation referred to is usually electromagnetic energy, particularly infrared radiation, visible light, and ultraviolet. Some stars are known to emit radiation of other wavelengths. Solar neutrinos are a...
