On Friday, May 19th, 2017 the School of Science hosted a graduation brunch for the graduating students in the undergraduate and graduate programs in all School of Science departments. A makeshift shed for Reactor 1 now in place, but no secure containment for the old exploded reactor buildings that are dangerously radioactive with flooded basements too of radioactive water, 90,000 tons in all onsite, including some in tanks above ground.
NASA has said its spacecraft on first asteroid sample return mission will pass about 16,000 km above the Earth on September 22. OSIRIS-REx is undertaking a challenging mission to visit the near-Earth asteroid, collect samples and deliver them safely back to the Earth.
A $500,000 grant from New York State will enable the Jefferson Project to add ten more sensors to a system that is designed to give scientists a remarkably detailed understanding of the lake, an understanding that will …
We help the research community to work smart and discover more. The effective difference between observing a total eclipse of the sun in the narrow path of totality and observing the partial solar eclipse just outside the path of totality is comparable to the difference between hitting a home run in baseball just inches beyond the outfielder’s glove and having the outfielder make a leaping catch for the out.
First, 19th-century progressivist conceptions of history, particularly associated with the French philosopher Auguste Comte, held to a theory of history in which societies pass through three stages – religious, metaphysical and scientific (or ‘positive’).
Several decades ago scientists developed a theory, generally accepted today, that the Moon formed from a glancing collision of a fairly large astronomical body with the Earth over 4.5 billion years ago, not long after the formation of Earth as a solid body.
Featured Research on Science Daily: New method for researching understudied malaria-spreading mosquitoes. Using techniques of induced pluripotent stem cell conversion, scientists at the University of Wisconsin created heart cells out of skin cells. Population surveys found lower rates of heart disease, despite high-fat diets, in some European countries where red wine was consumed regularly.
Although HIV treatment has rapidly advanced since the introduction of antiretroviral drugs in the 1990s, the absence of an effective vaccine means the virus continues to spread, infecting 2.5 million people each year. Mobile phone use during pregnancy is unlikely to have any adverse effects on child neurodevelopment, according to new research.
ACE inhibitor drugs are currently used to lower Ang II in non-pregnant women with hypertension, but these drugs cannot be given to pregnant women. The work shows for the first time the feasibility and therapeutic efficacy of this alternative cell-based vaccine, which could be …
A massive magnitude 8.1 earthquake struck Mexico just before midnight on Thursday. The campus’ Darrin Communications Center served as the central hub — and temporary home — for avid student hackers focused on creating projects in areas of technology that address hardware, web, data, mobile, video game and virtual reality, and the humanitarian fields, among others.
Too little is known about the newfound impact to guess its origin, size or effect on the global climate, said geochemist Morgan Schaller of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, N.Y. But it fits in with the long-standing and controversial proposal that a comet impact caused the PETM.
The oil industry faces a bottleneck holding back resurgent domestic oil production – an outmoded U.S. distribution system Pipeline construction often lags production booms by years – if proposed lines are built at all – because of opposition from environmentalists and landowners, topographic obstacles, and permitting and …
The recent crackdown of the U.S. authorities on some online computer support companies has resurrected the once-buried debate among customers whether or not to trust them for technical support needs. DC Ammeter are mainly PMMC instruments, MI can measure both AC and DC currents, also Electrodynamometer type thermal instrument can measure DC and AC, induction meters are not generally used for ammeter construction due to their higher cost, inaccuracy in measurement.
