Pour enough of the cornstarch into the pool — and you can walk on the surface of water. Scientists were able to uncover the secret of the trick at a party with Youtube.

If you hit the liquid leg, starch particles are suspended in the water, coming together just as the snow plow is going around. This seal forms a heavy site, which can repel with the same falling down pressure, which is concentrated at the tip of the high stiletto heels, report scientists July 12 in the journal "Nature", informs «WordScience.org».

North Korean missile DEVELOPMENT TECHNOLOGY: PRESENT AND sham

  In light of recent events on the Korean Peninsula reappears as enthusiasm for military, first rocket, the capacity of the DPRK. Introducing translation from materials website globalsecurity.org with some additions.   Antiship missile KN-01   Is a variant of Russian anti-ship missile SS-N-2 Styx beginning of the 1960s. March 10, 2003, North Korea conducted tests, presumably, KN-01. The rocket was launched from Sinsan-ri and flew 110 km before falling into the Sea of ​​Japan. This was the second test of KN-01 for two weeks — the first test conducted a day of inauguration of South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun

On the territory of the Orenburg helium plant construction installation OG-500 helium liquefaction

This project is part of the investment program of "Gazprom gazenergoset."

Installing the liquefaction of helium will be a single structure for the production and shipment of liquid helium, followed by transportation. The unit will include compression system, a system to remove oil, helium liquefier, liquid helium storage system, the system of training of the helium gas filling station, the system will store and supply of liquid nitrogen. Plant capacity is 500 liters per hour (4.2 million liters per year). Commissioning of the liquefaction of helium will allow the company to expand the wholesale distribution of liquid

At the site SIBUR-Kstovo set a new technological column

 

At the site "SIBUR-Kstovo" working in the SIBUR in the reconstruction of the main process of EP-300 installed a new column for the primary gas separation.

This is the biggest technological pillar, which further established the company in order to increase the production of ethylene from 240 to 360 thousand tons per year and provide raw material for the production of complex under construction of PVC "RusVinyl" — SP SIBUR and SolVin.

The column is designed for the primary separation of methane pyrolysis at a low temperature gas separation. The principle of the equipment

At JSC Kuznetsov passed the test of liquid rocket engine for the Soyuz-2.1V

January 15, the specialists of "Smiths" had a successful acceptance testing of liquid rocket engine NK-33A. After the engine has worked at the stand of the specified time, he was sent to the assembly hall of the plant to prepare for the handover.

The engine is designed for flight tests of the carrier rocket "Soyuz-2.1V", which is the developer of SRP "Progress Samara Space Center."

JSC "Kuznetsov" is the largest enterprise of aviation and space propulsion engineering. The company produces aviation gas turbine engines for gas compressor units of trunk gas pipelines, block-modular power plants,

The attack on the Artur Finkevich. The guy is in the hospital

Society Artur Finkevich and Alexander Lykshin moved towards the BPF office Masherova prospectus. Suddenly ran up to them a couple of people streamed into the eyes of unknown liquid and knocked down.

Arthur and Alexandra were beaten with hands and feet. In Finkievich confiscated a laptop, flash, money and mobile phone. All occurred in the courtyard in front of numerous witnesses. Residents called the police and an ambulance.

Arthur with his eyes closed was taken to the 10th hospital. The doctors said that on the face and the eyes have a burn from the liquid which he gushed in

Hunt for Planet X continued: astronomer from Brazil provided evidence

September 1, 2012 8:16

Assuming the existence of a mysterious "Planet X" got kind of mathematical proofs due to the Rodney Gomez, an astronomer at the National Observatory of Brazil in Rio de Janeiro. Mr. Gomez led math proving, in his view, the presence of the tenth planet in the outskirts of the solar system.

The study of variations of small bodies located in the so-called Kuiper Belt — solar system located beyond the orbit of Pluto, the astronomer gave reason to believe, and to calculate the exact weight of the mysterious object. According to calculations by Rodney Gomes,

The electric field caused fluid petrify

October 17, 2011 13:00

Physics made solidify liquid with an electric field. Under the influence of sufficiently high electric fields drop certain liquids can solidify. Under the conditions of temperature and pressure, the liquid state of matter begin to form solid crystals. Such a transformation, called electrocrystallization demonstrated scientists from Georgia Institute of Technology. The experiment succeeded to a strong electric field to cause a phase transition without changing the thermodynamic parameters. The new study is based on the work of Geoffrey Taylor, who in 1964 described the transformation of spherical droplets of water in the needle during the passage

On Neptune and Uranus — oceans of liquid diamond

On Neptune and Uranus — oceans of liquid diamond with diamond icebergs, scientists suggest

Neptune and Uranus may contain oceans of liquid diamond. On the surface float solid diamond icebergs. Such a hypothesis, "Interfax", put forward by British scientists.

The fact that Uranus and Neptune 10% composed of carbon — building material for diamond. To obtain a liquid diamond, you need to reach a very high temperature. (Melting point diamond, according to the site XuMuK.ru, is 3,500 C). To do this, researchers conducted an experiment.

"The peculiarity of the experiment lies in the fact that by
