The most extensive groundwater contamination by arsenic in human history

The most extensive groundwater contamination by arsenic in human history Danger Zone

Source of groundwater contamination by arsenic in the Indian part of Bengal basin, discovered a few decades ago, is still not installed. This area is home to about 60 million people who are experiencing an acute shortage of water even for washing or bathing. This concentration of arsenic in drinking water causes skin lesions, respiratory failure and cancer.

It has been suggested that the source of pollution are artificial reservoirs, which accumulates large amounts of organic substances, including arsenic. From there, arsenic and into the groundwater. However, Kansas

Russian physicists have synthesized a new generation of superconductors

Scientists from the Lebedev Physical Institute RAS (LPI) was synthesized for the first time in Russia a new type high-temperature superconducting materials based on iron, nickel and cobalt, which has great potential in engineering, said "LPI-Inform".   Until recently, the main class of high-temperature superconductors are cuprates — copper-based compounds. In 1993, Eugene Antipov Sergey Putilin from MSU got a mercury-based cuprate, in experiments which set a record temperature The superconducting transition state — 135 Kelvin (109 degrees below zero Celsius). However in 2008 opened a new class high temperature superconductors — iron based materials and pnictide (nitrogen,

The reservoir near Chelyabinsk increased arsenic

Ecology

In Argazinskom reservoir recorded elevated levels of arsenic. On Friday, citing data Rospotrebnadzor the commission of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of radiation and environmental safety of the Deputy Minister Konstantin Smolin. According to him, today the situation is not critical, because the arsenic does not exceed limits. To the concentration does not exceed the maximum permissible norms need to be monitored, which will also help identify the source of contamination.

Recall the summer of 2010 in Argazinskom reservoir was a mass death of fish, mostly ripusa. Then the analysis of water samples failed to identify the cause of

The bacterium NASA did not meet expectations

Scientists have "destroyed" a new form of life on Earth — the sensational bacterium NASA did not meet expectations

Sensational hypothesis of bacteria that can live in a saturated solution of arsenic, which gave rise to talk of a "new life form" on Earth, apparently, finally disproved. Scientists have discovered that the bacterium GFAJ-1 is able to catch a phosphate from the environment, even in arsenic, says Nature.

An important discovery was made by scientists Veytsmannskogo Institute of Science in Israel. They have discovered the mechanism by which, even when the bacteria are found in a toxic environment,

Sinkhole in Canada could lead to environmental disaster

Federal officials worry that growing sinkhole at … tvnportal

July 23, 2011.Federal officials from the city of Yellowknife, are concerned that the growing failure near the former gold mine Giant Mine could result in leakage of water into underground chambers for storage of arsenic. 

Failure first appeared in May and now has an area of six square meters. It is located between Baker Creek and the quarry, which is connected to the underground part of the mine.

Mine near the city of Yellowknife, located in north-western Canada, has made more than seven million ounces of gold in the
