Re: Official SMP News Articles Thread

I think is a good idea, helps everyone to get information that they may not be aware of or would not search for, or information on the latest discoveries etc. The reliable source is also key, only use respectable and reliable sources on science, math, technology etc.

All this excitement is rooted in analyses of chemical data returned by NASA's Cassini spacecraft. One study suggested that hydrogen was flowing down through Titan's atmosphere and disappearing at the surface. Astrobiologist Chris McKay at NASA Ames Research Center speculated this could be a tantalizing hint that hydrogen is getting consumed by life.

Re: Official SMP News Articles Thread

this isn't a news article per se but it's a really good read:



wasn't sure if i should start a new thread on it




New thread; preferably in other topics, as it really doesn't fit SMP.

Also this thread is for interesting 'new' ideas or advances or discoveries in Science/Technology so the article does not fit the thread and will be deleted so the thread is not derailed.

For climate relief, US will turn to gas

http://www.nature.com/news/2010/1006....2010.318.html
Quote:
...estimate that the US could reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the electricity sector by at least 10 percent virtually overnight by shutting down inefficient coal-fired plants and ramping up gas-powered generators.

Burning natural gas to generate electricity emits roughly half as much carbon dioxide as coal
This is good for me, the fam is in the business of making electricity from methane

What the hyena's laugh tells: Sex, age, dominance and individual signature in the giggling call of Crocuta crocuta
http://www.biomedcentral.com/1472-6785/10/9

This is more of a research paper than an article but you can read the abstract if you don't want to read the entire study (however it is well written and worth the read if you're interested and have time).
