PEAVEY Vypyr VIP-2 electric, acoustic & bass combo

Most guitarists cover electric and acoustic, and many play bass too: so how about an amp that can handle all three? Review by Richard Purvis.

Express MD2 tested

This is the second small satellite communications. The first was launched February 11, 2009.

The spacecraft "Express-MD2" created by Khrunichev Khrunichev has successfully passed acoustic testing at the Central Aero-Hydrodynamic Institute named after Professor NE Zhukovsky (TsAGI, Zhukovsky).

In the reverberation chamber RK-1500 spacecraft tested the effect of high-frequency pressure fluctuations that occur during startup, transonic flight at maximum speed pressure.

Upon completion of acoustic testing, "Express-MD2" was delivered to the factory for testing in early April for electromagnetic compatibility in an anechoic chamber.

Satellite "Express-MD2" is created in the framework of the

Developed unique methods to fight cancer with the help of silicon nanoparticles

On the role of a cancer cell killer scientists "assign" oxygen. The one without which life is impossible. But it is in the passive form. That it it exists in the atmosphere. But if the gas is made active, it becomes a potent poison that kills any fabric. Including cancer.

Amazing transformation of "good" in the poison gas scientists charged nanoparticles of silicon. And they are well equipped for this role. The question is only how it is made in the flask, and the cell body. How to get there precisely to the tumor without causing harm to healthy cells?
