New floating microscopic device will allow researchers to study a wide range of cellular processes It´s a bit of a challenge. But, imagine a microscopic jet vacuum cleaner, the size of a pen nib that hovers over cell surfaces without ever touching them. Then imagine that the soap in the cleaning solution is replaced with various molecules that can be selectively delivered to the cells. This gives you a sense of a new device that researchers believe will serve as a powerful tool to...

Cleaning Up With Space Tech

Very often vacuum cleaner commercials emphasize on powerful suction or no suction loss over the time. GoodVac.com has done the research and concluded that while these claims may be true, suction is not the single most important factor that should be considered when shopping for a new sweeper. A lot of physical parameters are at work here and they have to come together at a ratio that is just right in order for the appliance to be an effective "dirt sucking machine". Palos Park, IL (PRWEB)...

A barometer is an instrument that measures atmospheric pressure. The barometer measures pressure exerted by the atmosphere using water, air, or mercury. Through measuring the pressure one can forecast short term weather changes. Evangelista Torricelli is credited with the invention of the barometer in 1643. However, Gasparo Berti unintentionally built a water barometer around the same time. Rene Descartes was also noted as describing an experiment to determine air pressure but there is no...
