Science & Hi Tech: World's First Successful Combat Submarine Uncovered
Posted by DT_Amanda on Monday, March 02, 2015 @ 00:00:00 GMT (254 reads)
SCIENCE & TECH NEWS

For the first time in over one hundred and fifty years, it is possible to actually see the submarine Hunley. Until recently, it was completely covered by an encrusted layer of sand, sediment and shells that built up slowly over time. For the past four months, Clemson University conservators have been conducting the delicate task of chiseling away this concretion.

Science & Hi Tech: A Buoy's Long Strange Trip
Posted by ginamc on Wednesday, March 26, 2014 @ 07:10:00 GMT (1218 reads)
SCIENCE & TECH NEWS

WHOI Western Ireland is cool and rainy in late September—good weather for ducks. Irish filmmaker Fergus Sweeney was walking along Blacksod Bay, County Mayo, last fall, when he saw a big round object washed ashore in the distance. It was bright yellow, the colour of a rubber duck, but nearly as a big as a bathtub.

Sweeney took a closer look and saw that it was an oceanographic buoy. But where had it come from, what was it for, and what brought it to Ireland?

Science & Hi Tech: Underwater Stone Age Atlantis Discovered: 11,000 Year-Old Settlement Discovered Under The Baltic Sea
Posted by DT_Sam on Thursday, February 20, 2014 @ 17:30:42 GMT (1136 reads)
SCIENCE & TECH NEWS

Divers in Sweden have discovered a collection of Stone Age artifacts buried beneath the Baltic Sea. 

Archaeologists believe the relics were left by Swedish nomads over 11,000 years ago, and the discovery may be the oldest ever found in the Nordic region.  The find has been dubbed 'Sweden's Atlantis', after the relics were found in amazing preserved condition.  At this point, there is speculation that the settlement was swallowed by the sea, in much the same way as the myth of Atlantis.

Science & Hi Tech: Gimme Swelter: We Explain The UK and US Heatwave's
Posted by ginamc on Monday, July 29, 2013 @ 07:00:00 GMT (906 reads)
SCIENCE & TECH NEWS

New Scientist After the cold, the heat. High pressure spreading across the UK from Siberia last spring brought record cold temperatures. Now more high pressure, this time from the tropical Atlantic, is bringing a sweltering heatwave. These high-pressure zones are blocking the jet stream which usually brings the country's normal changeable weather. "Blocking highs" are an increasing theme of North American weather reports too, bringing concern of a long-term shift. New Scientist looks at the issues.

Science & Hi Tech: Starfish Eyes Are Good Enough To Show Them The Way Home
Posted by ginamc on Monday, July 15, 2013 @ 07:00:00 GMT (2519 reads)
SCIENCE & TECH NEWS

New Scientist Starfish use the light-sensitive organs at the tips of their arms to form images, helping the animals find their way home if they stray from the reef.

We have known about the sensors that starfish have at the ends of their arms for 200 years, but no one knew whether they are real eyes that form images or simply structures that detect changes in light intensity.
