Oh, and a mature jaguar’s jaws are capable of biting down with two thousand pounds of force, the strongest of any cat. It subdues its prey in an ambush attack by biting down on the skull, its massive teeth puncturing the brain adjacent to each ear.
that ignition of the fuel should be possible, if there is substantial reflection of x-ray energy back into the plasmoid. Earlier, separate analyses by LPP researchers and Iranian researchers in the Journal of Fusion Energy had concluded that ignition
Without excess energy, the excited state above the bandgap will be nearly empty and the ground state below the bandgap almost completely populated. A population inversion can be achieved by adding excitation energy to electrons to
You know what kind of sucks about riding a bike? Other than all that pedaling? Bike helmets. Sure, they keep that overrated "brain" from getting splattered, but they take a lot of the open-air-joy out of things, and they're not comfortable. A pair
e man who helped most was Thomas B. Brown, an inventor who was troubled with a tendency to deafness. By following the advice of the readings he was able to improve his hearing, and thereafter bought much of Edgar’s time for readings on the problems h
The comet will venture no closer to us than about 40 million miles, less than half the distance between Earth and the sun. That closest approach to Earth will occur Dec. 26. Then it will head away in the opposite direction forever, given its anticipa
* Carbyne’s tensile strength – the ability to withstand stretching – surpasses “that of any other known material” and is double that of graphene. (Scientists had already calculated it would take an elephant on a pencil to b
Peter Hochuli and Susanne Feist-Burkhardt from Paleontological Institute and Museum, University of Zurich, studied two drilling cores from Weiach and Leuggern, northern Switzerland, and found pollen grains that resemble fossil pollen from the earlies
Mr Mansor told The Borneo Post he had never seen a fish like it and couldn't identify what it was. He said he and a friend travelled for two hours from the Miri River to the sea before catching the creature, along with several other fish.
Due to the large level spacings that can be achieved in quantum wells, our proposal opens a route toward room-temperature applications of nanoscale heat engines.
The map above comes from the Nuclear Emergency Tracking Center. It shows that radiation levels at radiation monitoring stations all over the country are elevated. As you will notice, this is particularly true along the west coast of the United Stat
Comet ISON photographed on Nov. 10th by amateur astronomer Michael Jäger of Jauerling Austria. Because ISON has never passed through the inner solar system before (it is a first-time visitor from the distant Oort cloud), experts aren't sure what wi
Resources companies will not abandon their highly advanced exploration technology in favour of the gold trees but with a single exploratory drillhole costing tens of thousands of dollars, anything that assists the search for minerals is useful.
It’s become extremely obvious, especially within the past few years, that Earth’s dependence on fossil fuels is not needed at all. Yet we continue to create war, destroy the environment and harm mother Earth so we can continue using the same old tech
ou will see how your consciousness has reversed the flow of time in laboratory experiments, changed the course of light from being a straight line and how what you know as "reality" is explained by some noted physicists as an elaborate digital simu
Exactly 10 years before, when Newcastle yachtsman Ivan Macfadyen had sailed exactly the same course from Melbourne to Osaka, all he'd had to do to catch a fish from the ocean between Brisbane and Japan was throw out a
Since the average banana contains a whopping 467 mg of potassium and only 1 mg of sodium, a banana a day may help to prevent high blood pressure and protect against atherosclerosis. The effectiveness of potassium–rich foods such as bananas in lowe
works by excluding all external magnetic fields (including the Earth's gravity), and takes you on a trip beyond the third and fourth dimensional space time continuum, bringing you to a fifth dimensional consciousness. This is the dimension of imagin
Here’s a look at where the R&D spending in the world happens, by region: Americas 36.0% Asia 36.7% Europe 24.1% Rest of world 3.2%
Now we are going to add a second rectangular window a couple of feet to the left of the first window and begin shooting again [see below]. Because we are at some distance from the two windows, some of our bullets will randomly go through one or the o
. Byrne says that elephant eyesight is poor compared to our own, and researchers who work with elephants have commented on how bad they are at identifying things by sight. “It would perhaps have been surprising if they had spont
Matsen said the downtown inlet remains a suitable spot for herring for the same reason that it is an ideal location for boats — it is protected from waves and heavy wind. But like other sheltered bays on the heavily developed east side of Georgia Str
Your intuition is a knowingness within you that comes without explanation or proof. This knowingness takes place at the cellular level and beyond. Some of us like to refer to intuition as the “gut feeling.” It is important to know that your intuition
It was like something out of a science fiction movie right there in our living room, but it was far more complex and intricate than any special effect I have even seen. It was mesmorizing and hypnotizing. I found myself draw to it, staring and just t
According to British geneticist Bryan Sykes, the Yeti is not an ape-like relative of Bigfoot, as the legends of this creature would have us believe. Gathering DNA samples from two regions of the Himalayan Mountains, Sykes has used sophisticated genet
he catch is that these building blocks need the right conditions in order for life to flourish. Excitingly, our study widens the scope for where these important ingredients may be formed in the Solar System and adds another piece to the puzzle of how
A project that initially started when a student was curious to study the effects of the human mind and intention on the surrounding environment, turned into a rigorous testing lab where Dr. Robert Jahn and his lab assistant spent many hours experimen
A large bird was sighted recently in Illinois resembled a turkey vulture but it was different. It resembled a turkey vulture but it had a large head not small head, broader tail and much broader wings but it had the silvery wing feathers. Its flight
However, owing to a specific sequence of events which led me on a solitary quest which was to last nearly fifteen years, I believe I have found a way of understanding what might really be going on in and around us. And ultimately, if I am right, the
this substance has no apparent reason for existing except to provide a kind of blank leader -- like the blank film on an old reel movie -- that protects the vital DNA code each time it makes a copy of itself.
