Find and eat (USA, 2009).

D / f about "pomoechnyh divers," eating food thrown in the trash. Food in the trash so much that I have to buy extra refrigerators. This abundance begins to cause problems. Why supermarkets throw away tons of edible food, and people continue to go hungry — and not something that is in Ethiopia, but here, there, in the fat of California? Why is all this does not get to, such as the Salvation Army canteens? Why supermarkets refuse to talk about it?

Siberian physicists discovered the world of four-

Alexei Garmash, a senior researcher at the Institute of Nuclear Physics GIBudker and participant of the experiment says: "In general, the whole world around us, especially three-quark: the proton and neutron are strictly for three particles, not the other way. In theory, the possibility of combining the four quarks predicted in the 60's, but have yet to obtain a particle experiment could not be anyone. " Siberian physicists managed to do it, although the search for the four-particle was not the original purpose of their experiments. INP made the discovery in the study of two-quark systems, which are unstable: in

Siberian scientists create laboratory growth of semiconductors for ISS

At the Institute of Semiconductor Physics (ISP), SB RAS, work began on the construction and testing of a pilot plant for the synthesis of semiconductor nanostructures "Ekran-M", which will be placed on board the ISS. This was announced on Friday, RIA Novosti Deputy Director for Science Institute, head of the project, Professor Oleg Pchelyakov.

The semiconductor electronics use crystalline materials that are grown in a high vacuum. The purity of the semiconductor materials depends homogeneity of the crystals, which allows you to modify and control their conductive properties by further insertion of impurities (doping).

Secrets of the World Ocean

June 12, 2013. Scientists sometimes joke that the depth of the oceans are less well than the reverse side of the moon. This is quite a truthful statement, to date, according to various sources, the oceans studied only by 2-5%.

At the bottom of the oceans, there are real underwater river, or rather, the cases of so-called "cold seepage." It is referred to as sites where hydrogen sulfide, methane and other hydrocarbons seep through cracks at the bottom mixed with the sea water, and then slowly moving, like rivers. The word "cold" in the title of this phenomenon does not
