Science & Hi Tech: A Buoy's Long Strange Trip
Posted by ginamc on Wednesday, March 26, 2014 @ 07:10:00 GMT (1009 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 (910 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 (829 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 (2443 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.

Science & Hi Tech: Peugeot and Total Prepare for the Future with the Technology Demonstrator 208 HY
Posted by ginamc on Monday, March 04, 2013 @ 07:05:00 GMT (2554 reads)
SCIENCE & TECH NEWS

Total Continuing years of commitment to improving vehicle energy performance, Peugeot and Total are combining their capacity for innovation once more in a breakthrough project: the 208 HYbrid FE. The aim is to design a vehicle combining real driving pleasure (0 to 100km/h / 0 to 62 mph in just 8.0 seconds) and low emissions of CO2 (49g/km). This technological demonstrator will benefit from Peugeot and Total's latest innovations in aerodynamics, weight-saving and drivetrains. The performance of this technological demonstrator will be achieved without the use of a top-up energy source (non plug-in petrol technology) and taking as its base an already very efficient production vehicle. 49g CO2/km, 0 to 100km/h / 0 to 62 mph in 8 seconds… This means halving the emissions of the most economical of the petrol engines (Fuel Economy) while obtaining acceleration worthy of a small sports car (so Fun and Efficient).
