Unusual snow on Mars? NASA orbiter saw carbon dioxide snowflakes

September 20, 2012 16:11

A spacecraft orbiting Mars, fixed carbon dioxide snow falling on the red planet. Thus, Mars was the only body in the solar system, where possible this strange phenomenon.

Snow on Mars fell out of the clouds above the south pole of the planet during the Martian winter 2006-2007, when they found this effect only after a detailed analysis of the results of observations made by Mars research probe MRO. The Martian south pole is ice cap of frozen carbon dioxide, or dry ice, and the new discovery could explain how it was formed and remains

New robot tentacle neatly captures even the most fragile items

September 13, 2012 16:50

Traditional robotic manipulators excellent job of moving parts in the production of cars, but not suitable for soft and fragile items that require special delicacy. A team of scientists from Harvard University (Harvard University) together with experts of the Agency for Defense Advanced Research Projects USA (DARPA) to create a mechanical tentacle, which is so sensitive that can pluck a flower without damaging it. Amazing device is described in the journal Advanced Materials (also available in PDF-version of the article.)

Vaytsayds George (George Whitesides) and his colleagues moved away from the standard, when the

The Chinese will be looking aliens in the Antarctic

September 3, 2012 14:24

Chinese astronomers sent to Antarctica to search for Earth-inhabited planets. The first Sino-Australian Telescope AST3-1 in Antarctica has a resolution 5280 × 10560 pixels. It can be the beginning of a major program "astronomical development" of Antarctica and will help in the search for habitable exoplanets.

The first Sino-Australian Telescope AST3-1 in Antarctica has a resolution 5280 × 10560 pixels.

It is now set to the first of three Antarctic research telescopes at Dome Argus plateau, located on the highest point of the Antarctic continent. However, to control the tool by satellite and automation,

500 million years ago on Earth lived animals like tulips

January 23, 2012 13:25

In the famous geological formation-Burgess Shale in the Canadian Rockies is a strange creature, which lived about 505 million years ago and having a hitherto unprecedented system of serving food.

The animal has cupped form, which contained the notorious system and internal organs. It looked like a tulip bud and was on top of the "stem" and the lower part of which was complete discoid outgrowth attached to the sea floor. Total length being christened Siphusauctum gregarium, was 20 cm

Cambrian creation hunted filtration, sucking water through tiny holes in the "cup."

In the early 1980s, Peter Narins of the University of California in Los Angeles (USA) heard in the forest at all other sounds — using geophones. Underground was quieter, but not quiet. So scientists could discover that spotted whistler (Leptodactylus fragilis) are able to communicate by sending seismic signals.

These frogs emit a series of short beeps (about four per second), inflating and blowing vocal
