Underwater Explosions at 120k frames per second

Check out this awesome video done by the slowmo guys using micro explosions from firecrackers underwater while filming at up to 120,000 frames per second.  The footage is really interesting and awesome to watch! Maybe they’ll do some bigger ones, let’s see some M100’s go off and possibly shatter the tank in the process.   […]

New definition of chaos proposed




The idea that the flapping of a butterfly’s wings might trigger a hurricane beautifully encapsulates the concept of chaos, where a small difference in initial conditions will cascade toward a vastly different outcome in the future. Mathematically, extreme sensitivity to initial conditions can be represented by a quantity called a Lyapunov exponent, which is positive […]

Could solar flares be triggering birth defects?




It’s known that airplane crews at high altitude are exposed to potentially harmful levels of radiation from cosmic rays, but could these cosmic rays pose hazards even at sea level? A new study into these potential terrestrial effects has just been published in the Journal of Geophysical Research. Study co-author Adrian Melott, professor of physics […]

New metal composite floats on water




A new metal matrix composite that combines light weight with strength and heat resistance could be used in marine vessels within three years, say its developers. The researchers behind the new metal matrix syntactic foam, from Deep Springs Technology (DST) and the New York University Polytechnic School of Engineering (NYU), have published details of their […]

Bionic plants created with carbon nanotubes




Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) report boosting plants’ ability to capture light energy by 30 percent by embedding carbon nanotubes in the chloroplast, the part of the plant where photosynthesis takes place. The new field of “plant nanobionics” could, according to the research team, create plants with enhanced energy production that are […]
