Space smog

Welcome to the mostpolluted place in the galaxy

If you thought that choking carbon emissions were a problem specific to the more industrial areas of modern-day Earth, you’d be wrong. The eerie glow you see in this image, taken from NASA’s GLIMPSE360 (Galactic Legacy Infrared Mid-Plane Survey Extraordinaire) survey, is caused by a giant cloud of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). These hydrogen and carbon compounds are more commonly found on Earth in the soot caused by dirty vehicle exhausts and open fireplaces.

Here, they’ve been coloured green so that their glow can be more easily observed by scientists in infrared

NEW LEVEL OF STYLE AND COMFORT

A swanky new apartment condominium in the Orchard Road belt has a special lift that sends the owner’s parked car up to his residence, where these vehicles literally become part of the home decor. But there’s another way to enjoy your favourite «cars» in the comfort of your home — get them as furniture. A slew of carmakers has been launching chairs that carry the aesthetic trademarks and groundbreaking technology of their prized vehicles.

The Maserati by Zanotta lounge chair captures the harmonious lines of the new Maserati Quattroporte. Designers Ludovica and Roberto Palomba have created a leather seat that

Principles of nutrition Microbes

Therefore, in the culture medium should contain all these nutrients in amounts corresponding to the specific needs of the organism. However, the physiology of microorganisms is extremely diverse, and so are as varied their specific nutritional needs. For the cultivation of microbes offered literally thousands of different media, and often in the description of these environments does not specify precisely why they put those or other components. Meanwhile, the composition of the culture medium can and must be based on scientific principles of nutrition. These principles will be discussed in this section.

Because the chemical composition of cells which is

CHINESE trying to smuggle high-tech U.S. FROM CARBON FIBER FOR STEALTH FIGHTER

Chinese citizen Ming Xuan Zhang (Ming Suan Zhang), 40 years old, was indicted by a federal tribunal East New York neighborhood in Brooklyn in an attempt to smuggle illegal from the U.S. to China sverhtehnologichny carbon fiber, which could potentially be used in the production of the stealth fighter, reports The Epoch Times September 28. Tribunal accused Zhang in «conscious, deliberate and premeditated attempt to» smuggle products whose export is prohibited U.S. Department of Commerce.   Zhang was arrested as a result of a special operation U.S. law enforcement officials, who provided him with the Taiwanese carbon fiber production.

FGC in the Urals use new technology to strengthen the foundations of supports

MES Urals to introduce the latest technology to strengthen the foundations of supports 220-500 kV transmission lines using high-carbon fiber. The work carried out in preparation for the power grid facilities of JSC "FGC UES" to the period of the heating season 2012-2013.

Carbon fiber reinforcement fully recovers bearing capacity of the structure, blocking the process of destruction of the support. The foundation supports subjected to a special anti-corrosion treatment, followed by polymer-formulations restored geometry of the foundation is applied hydroprotective mastic, on top of which is laid carbon fiber. The polymer material has high seismic resistance and resistance to

Scientists Irkutsk Technical University received a patent for a method of separating carbon nanoparticles

Staff Physico-Technical Institute of Irkutsk State Technical University received patents for a method of processing solid waste ftoruglerodsoderzhaschih electrolytic aluminum production and the method of allocation of carbon nanoparticles.

One of the authors of the project, Head of Laser Physics and Nanotechnology PTI Nikolai Ivanov explained that the carbon nanostructures (nanotubes, astralenes) are effective modifiers of various materials, which significantly improves their strength characteristics (steels, alloys, ferrous and non-ferrous metals, concrete mixtures, the polymer-bitumen coating, carbon fiber reinforced plastics, etc.).

"Carbon nanotubes help improve many properties of the materials to which they

MSU scientists have increased the electrical conductivity of polymer composite by 11-13 orders

Carbon nanotubes

Group nanocomposites, part of the Department of Nuclear Physics Institute of Nuclear Physics of Moscow State University, is developing methods for the synthesis of carbon nanotubes and explores the possibility of using carbon nanotubes. More details about the work in this direction has told the head of Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Professor Didenko Chechenin.

— Nicholas Gavrilovic, tell us about their research of carbon nanotubes.

— Perhaps I'll start with the concepts. Carbon — one of the most important elements. It is found in our bodies,

Innovative materials holding "Composite" was reconstructed overpass number 3 through Mamadyshsky tract

In late 2011, light and durable innovative materials holding company "Composite" were strengthened in Kazan two bridges included in the plan of preparation of engineering facilities for the Universiade 2013. As a result of increasing allowable load-bearing support has increased by 30% compared with the original.

At the end of 2011 to complete the repair of individual bridges in Kazan, which are included in the plan of training facilities for the Universiade 2013. Innovative Materials Holding "Composite" was reconstructed overpass number 3 through Mamadyshsky tract. This

Urals Precision Alloys issued millionth tonne of wire after upgrade

Urals Precision Alloys (UZPS, one of the largest manufacturers of metal products in the country) has released millionth tonne of wire since the modernization of steel wire plant. Jubilee production was low carbon steel wire for general purpose, the press service of "NLMK-Ural" (UZPS part of a group of Novolipetsk Steel).

Today UZPS produces a wide range of low carbon wire segment diameter from 0.2 to 8 miilimetrov, including general purpose wire thermally treated and untreated, the wire BP-1, welding.

Also at the enterprise galvanized wire, low carbon quality grade KS, printing wire and wire of carbon

Unique designs using composites in construction

The plant of the State Corporation "Rosatom" "Argon" processing of carbon fiber, which is located in the city of Balakovo, Saratov region, started a unique repair using composites based on carbon tape production RUSNANO project company "Prepreg-SKM." During the 2012 composites repaired over 30 sites across the country.

Factory "Argon" built over 30 years ago. The company is a productive asset of "Rosatom" and the management holding company "Composite". "Argon" is engaged in processing of carbon fibers, which are the basis of composite materials that are in demand in many industries: aviation, shipbuilding, nuclear power engineering,
