Can bacteria help break down harmful pollutants?

Can bacteria help break down harmful pollutants? It is interesting

For 50 years, scientists finally understand the mechanism of how bacteria can break down hazardous phosphorous acid decomposes slowly in the environment. It is estimated that each year more than 20,000 tons of phosphoric acid is released into the environment in the Western Hemisphere. Most of the discharged acid pollutes ground water, endangering human life, aquatic flora and fauna. This substance can be found in medical preparations, detergents and herbicides.

The study was conducted postgraduate chemical separation Canadian university Queens Mc Sorley Fernie and several assistants. The study identified the

December 23. 19 experts from five research organizations have conducted extensive field studies of ocean acidification with sensors developed in Scripps Institution of Oceanography (USA).

An important step to understanding the response of specific ecosystems to changes in seawater chemistry due to the fact that the oceans absorb more carbon dioxide.

Ocean acidification — the theme is fairly new. Possible to estimate the extent of the problem only in the last decade. It is believed that the ocean absorbs about one-third

Scientists try to answer the question of whether the life on Mars

Scientists try to answer the question of whether the life on Mars Facts

After the successful launch of the mission Mars Science Laboratory (trans. Research Laboratory for the development of Mars) November 26, 2011, scientists are ready to begin to focus the energy of millions of light bulbs on the surface of the Red Planet, to determine whether the life on Mars or not.

A special role in this mission assign system "Chemcam", developed at Los Alamos, New Mexico. The basis of the system the technology shock laser spectroscopy (Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy, abbr. LIBS). Infrared laser focus power more than

Following a tornado in Oklahoma, the floods came

June 2, 2013. After a series of tornadoes in the U.S. state of Oklahoma the floods came.

Accompanied by a powerful cyclone rains. Not far from Oklahoma City went under the water several major highways, the traffic there is almost blocked. In some places the roadbed collapsed. According to some quarters are not at risk to drive even huge trucks.

Earlier in Oklahoma were reported new tornadoes. Their victims were 9 people, including two children. Wounded more than a hundred. The devastating tornadoes smashed trees, overturned cars and tore roofs off houses. Without light were about 200,000 people. Meteorologists

Worms can help people settle Mars

Worms can help people settle Mars Facts

Using special sensors remote control a team of scientists led by Nathaniel Szewczyk from the University of Nottingham carefully studied millimeter round worm Caenorhabditis elegans for 3 months. Being on the space shuttle "Discovery" in microgravity, worms reproduce 12 generations in the same way as they do on Earth. Significant was the observation of preserving the integrity of the musculoskeletal system during flight.

These worms were selected for the experiment because of the identity of the gene functions with the man: similar effects of mutational changes, metabolic and muscular changes during space flight.

Verification of systems alerting the public about emergencies in regions

In Krasnodar, will again test the function of alarm sirens

November 22. Tomorrow, 23 November, from 10.00 to 11.00 in Krasnodar will be another test of centralized automated system alerting the public.

To do this, the city will include Electric sirens. The sound that they make is a warning sign of civil defense of the danger, which means "Attention everyone!".

At this signal to turn on the TV channels on the TV, "Russia-1. Kuban "or" Channel Nine "or radios to the frequency of the radio station" Radio Russia "(71.81 MHz) or" first radio "(102.7 MHz).

The citizens can also

Why is Venus the brightest planet?

Why is Venus the brightest planet? It is interesting

Astronomers use the term "albedo" to describe the brightness of the planet. Surface or the atmosphere of the planet usually absorbs some light. Albedo, or reflectivity, expresses the ratio between the amount of light that reached the planet, and the percentage that was reflected from it.

Venus is the high albedo of all the planets in the solar system. It is the brightest planet because that reflects 70% of sunlight directed at her. This is explained by the ability of Venus clouds covering the planet. Clouds contain droplets of sulfuric acid
