Researchers have discovered that exposure to hydrogen sulfide - the chemical that gives sewer gas and rotten eggs their putrid smell - can put mice in a state of suspended animation. If similar exposure could do the same for humans, it could open up whole new areas of medicine and experimental research.
Sometimes smaller is better, if it performs better than the rest. No I’m not talking about men. I’m talking about a tiny little light bulb from Luxim, a Sunnyvale, California Company.
If all goes to plan, ethanol may be appearing at US pumps at $1 per gallon, according to an article at Energy-Daily.com.
Retired scientist Louis Michaud has plans to generate tornadoes near power plants that could provide a 40% increase in the plants' power output. If the concept works, it could dramatically cut down on the need for building new power plants, instead creating energy from the waste heat of existing plants.
Researchers from Stanford are developing a camera with thousands of tiny pixels, where clumps of 256 pixels act like an independent lens. The lenses can capture images from different angles, producing a high-res, 3-D "depth map" where every object in the image is in focus.
