Then here is your chance to ask someone face to face! With around 2 months to go until the 2014 NovoPulp deadline passes, we wanted to give everyone a chance to raise their hand and ask the questions that the rest of us didn't.

The HOA will be on:SATURDAY 7th OF JUNE 2014 - 16:00 CET / 10:00 EDT Submission Status:We are still in need of more short stories for this year but in particular WE NEED ART.

NASA Goddard63,118On March 29, 2014, an X-class flare burst off the right side of the sun . . . and NASA was watching.Coordinating their observations, five NASA observatories and one ground-based telescope were able to see things in the flare they'd never seen before.  Numerous other NASA spacecraft provided additional data about what was happening on the sun during the event and what the effects were at Earth. Join us at 2:30 p.m. EDT on Thursday, May 8, 2014, as researchers describe how multiple missions worked together to explore the sun's surface and atmosphere, layer by layer, providing unprecedented images of the onset of a solar flare.  In addition to the colorful pictures of the sun that NASA will share, participants will explain how such research can help scientists better understand what sets off these large explosions on the sun. Perhaps, someday scientists may be able to predict their onset, forewarning of the radio blackouts they can cause near Earth – blackouts that can interfere with military, airplane and ship communications.Participants include: Adrian Daw: IRIS project scientist at NASA GoddardAlbert Shih: RHESSI scientist at NASA GoddardSabrina Savage: Hinode deputy project scientist at NASA MarshallLucia Kleint: Bay Area Environmental Research Institute Jeffrey Newmark: NASA HeadquartersNASA Hangout: All Eyes on the Sun2014-05-08 20:30:00653G+

My object has been the sky, through the limited vantage point of my kitchen window and my backyard. The result, so far, is this album called Sky: http://goo.gl/phGuRForget about that for right now. Show everyone your own sky! The best, the worst. I've seen people mention avoiding it because it means they have no "object" to shoot. Don't listen to those people.

James Honzik19,841Sharers Meta-circle VI:  This is a super circle, a meta circle of circle sharers, focusing on photography and art. This is version VI, bigger, (actually, a little smaller, I checked and deleted more inactives than I added actives) better, faster, wilder. (ha) It's the only circle I share, and it's a good one.(and if you could, please look at my art and photography, that's why I do this - scroll down, I have lots of new and old good things)Thanks to everyone who shared me, and looked and commented on my photography and art.Special kudos out to those who not only share, but post there own good things.Peace.

Marlo Angelo Tito97,038Ruth (gRoUp of asTonisHing engagers)I postponed this circle for a week since my profile was going all crazy last week and it was getting on my nerves, actually. Anywho, this circle is semi-rebooted and finally it's here! I did not remove anyone from circle Will, but I guess the number will go down again in the next edition. :-DNote: If you want to suggest some people or yourself to be added in this circle, just tag them in the comments. :-DStill, the themed circle is on hiatus but we'll be taking Part Two's. If your theme is Photography and Arts, then just tell me in the comments :-D(let me copy-paste this one... lol)So folks, this is circle Ruth. And yes, you know it, this circle is filled with normal folks here in G+. Well that is, it's your definition of normal! :-D. Since this is not a themed circle or whatsoever, this circle has a pretty great mix as it shows a great diversity among the people. As I am done introducing these folks to you, you're might want to add them to know more! :-D  If you want to get into this circle, just tell me!And also if you want to be excluded from this circle, please also do tell me!SongS for the Week! Patrick Watson - The Great EscapeBon Iver - Love MoreHave a nice day and God bless everyone! :-D #Circle   #circleshare   #circlesharing   #circleoftheday   #shared   #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles   #sharedcircleoftheday   #sharedpublicircles   #sharing   #sharingcircles   #sharingiscaring   #sharingmeansthankyou   #add   #addcircle   #addpeople   #justanaverageteenagerwhoexpresseshisopinionsovertheinternetcircle  2014-07-13 13:57:4134010984140CC G+

A Solar Home : Inspired by Ted Ewen's post (http://goo.gl/lfEaxu), I decided to investigate the possibility of living off grid. Considering there are many variables to look at, it may not be possible in all places. But here is some interesting information which you can look at from the viewpoint of Solar Energy.

Build in the costs : First look at the property you are looking at. There are many ways in which one can implement solar panels. Unfortunately, there are varying degrees of quality and efficiency as well as stability and irradiance. So it needs to be sized for the area you have available and the kind of power you consume.

Babies' Practice Speech before they are able to speak : Fascinating study coupled with some earlier posts about the way human babies recognize language. While I was first quite interested in how toddlers learn (see SAF - A Change of Mind.m4v ), there is more research now in this area, which is amazing to know about. University of Washington researchers have published a new paper which is linked to this post as well.

Article Extract: “Most babies babble by 7 months, but don’t utter their first words until after their first birthdays,” said lead author Patricia Kuhl, who is the co-director of the UW’s Institute for Learning and Brain Sciences. “Finding activation in motor areas of the brain when infants are simply listening is significant, because it means the baby brain is engaged in trying to talk back right from the start and suggests that 7-month-olds’ brains are alreadytrying to f... more »

How to store energy using steel, air and water : One of the big challenges of our times is to have an energy storage system which stores energy in the Megawatt range. Plus chemical batteries have a relatively short life for industrial size storage. Now +University of Minnesota researchers have come up with a novel situation. And they have licensed SustainX to commercially develop the product.

Earlier approaches : People have known for hundreds of years that it's possible to store energy using simple methods—pumping water up a hill and then allowing the force of gravity to turn cogs on its way down later to recoup energy, for example, or on a bigger scale, pumping air into a cavern then using its force at a later time to drive a turbine, is another. Until recently, however, such methods of energy storage have not been able to compete with batteries—at least on a large scale.Tha... more »

Happy creatures : Well not really! :) While watching a TV show, I came upon these two creatures. The markings on the 'Happy-faced spider' makes it look like a cartoon version of a spider. The spider is actually a tiny little fellow (around 5 mm) from the Island of Maui. The fish is actually a Ray, called the thornback ray or it's scientific name Raja clavata. It is also called the Thornback Skate and is actually quite a common species. The so-called smiling face is a misnomer, as its 'eyes' which you see in the picture are actually gills.

Article link: The Happy-Faced Spider is a charismatic arachnid endemic to the Hawaiian Islands. T. grallator belongs to the comb-footed spiders (Theridiidae), a family which also includes the famous Black Widow. Happy-Faced Spiders are highly derived members of this group but do not share the venom toxicity of their more feared... more »

Water from thin air : A huge number of people on our planet do not have access to clean drinking water. I remember posting about this quite some time back, where two Italian designers carried forward a MIT concept of using bamboo and nylon to create a 'water condensation tower'. Christened "Warkawater" the structure was touted to collect as much as 25 gallons of water a day. Somehow it seems to have got buried. I was wondering if the proof of concept failed or they just did not have the connections to get funded.

Article Extract: The invention from Arturo Vittori, an industrial designer, and his colleague Andreas Vogler doesn't involve complicated gadgetry or feats of engineering, but instead relies on basic elements like shape and material and the ways in which they work together. At first glance, the 30-foot-tall, vase-shaped towers, named after a figtree native... more »

Dinosaurs and Dragons : This is not a new discovery, but the similarity to mythical dragons is striking. And no, humans and dinosaurs did not walk the Earth at the same time. Though dinosaur fossils may well have been unearthed or found by some of our ancestors. Just found this very interesting, and it had the geek in me giggling ;)

Article extract: "Dragons Unearthed," features a 66-million-year-old,  dinosaur called Dracorex Hogwartsia. There’s no denying that Dracorex’s long muzzle and spiky horns conjure up visions of a magical beast, but the museum needed an expert to confirm that it wasn’t a coincidence that Dracorex looked more like a dragon than a dinosaur. Dracorex is named Dracorex hogwartsia in honor of children’s author J.K. Rowling. “The shape of the dinosaur’s skull, with its long muzzle, bizarre knobs and horns, surprised the scientists,” she said.“But the skull... more »

DARPA funds development of space plane for cheaper, faster satellite launches : The cost of putting up satellites in space is huge - not only from a viewpoint of the money involved, but also the effort and fuel expended. Spaceplaces and air-to-space launches are one way to go. This effort from DARPA has been some time in coming, especially since the X-37B has already completed multiple missions. Maybe we can look at dynamic soaring / laser propulsion next?

Article extract: The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is looking for a way to reduce the cost and scheduling constraints that affect satellite launches. This week, DARPA announced the kickoff of the Experimental Spaceplane (XS-1) program, an unmanned reusable hypersonic vehicle that would carry a disposable second stage into suborbital space, launch it, and glide back to Earth—and be ready to be relaunched the next day.

Calling All Geeks: Can I borrow five bucks? =)
TLDR: http://bit.ly/btckiva .

First off I want to apologize if this comes across as being spammy. I don't generally post things here that are self promotional but in this case I hope you'll all forgive me!

As some of you know, I quit my full time gig over a year ago to start my own business; a worker-owned tech support cooperative based in Somerville, MA called +Boston TechCollective. It's been a hell of a ride and I love not only what I do but my co-owners are some of the best people I've ever worked with!

We've grown considerably in a little over a year and at this point we could really use two people manning the shop and two people doing on-site/remote support. There are only three of us though! As you might imagine, it's stretching us very thin. We've got too much work but note... more »

NovoPulp Bonus Content Spotlight: 'Science Fiction and Science' by +Lacerant Plainer

We give away free bonus content to anyone who joins the NovoPulp mailing list (http://eepurl.com/C_-Qf ).

Lacerant recently donated the short essay 'Science Fiction and Science' sometime after we released the first wave of bonus content. Here is an extract:

"So much of science fiction has now moved to the realm of reality. We already have a real light saber, a real tricorder (well almost), holographic images, and replicators through 3D printing.

Google Contacts : Well its not really here yet, but if you were to believe the sites such as Beforeitsnews, you can hoof down to your neighborhood store and pick one up. The truth? Google X labs (yes that super-secret place where all the magic happens) has filed for a patent. The news is of course way off the charts. Interesting fodder for me though, and makes for an excellent story arc. HUDs in your eye and cameras in your eye...

Article Extract: Google first unveiled its smart contact lenses -- one of many projects to emerge from the mysterious Google X lab -- in January, but in an announcement today (15 July) it has revealed it will collaborate with global healthcare provider Novartis on the development of the lenses.

Novartis has licensed the technology from and will continue to develop the lenses designed by Google into a commercial healthcare product. Its eye care division... more »

Batteries from Sand : Beach Sand Used To Make A Battery That Lasts Three Times Longer : One of the issues of large scale production of nanoparticles is the cost. Nano-sized particles of Silicon can be used to make very efficient batteries. But synthesis of 8-10 nm sized particles are usually not environment friendly, stable or cost effective. Now researchers at +Univ. of California, Riverside have found a promising alternative - environmentally 'clean' production, at a low cost! How does this make a difference? If commercially made, it would mean your cellphone battery would last for three days.

Article Extract: Beach sand can be used to make lithium-ion batteries that last three times longer than current models. “This is the holy grail: a low-cost, non-toxic, environmentally friendly way to produce high performance lithium-ion battery anodes,” said Zachary Favors, a graduatestu... more »

The world's most expensive book : This is a story which was quite interesting in the history and how publishers have automated book pricing to reach ridiculous levels. I was actually searching for a book on Nanotechnology and found it on amazon. The price? over $5000... Needless to say, I decided to forgo the reading of the book. But this post is inspired by such pricing.

Article Extract: The common fruit fly is one of the most widely used organisms in genetic research. In fact, the fruit fly is incredibly valuable to scientists working in the field of developmental biology. But I must admit I was astonished when one of the classic works in developmental biology — Peter Lawrence's book The Making Of A Fly — was offered on Amazon.com for $23,698,655.93.

Sure, that 1992 book is a classic and it is out of print. However, developmental biology, while it isfun... more »

How to attract a Jaguar to a camera trap : Apparently all you have to do is use Obsession for Men by Calvin Klein around the camera and wait for the magic. Jaguars are largely solitary animals and  is often described as nocturnal, but is more specifically crepuscular (peak activity around dawn and dusk). It's solitary and elusive nature makes it a hard animal to study, especially since sighting it is so difficult.

Article extract: According to Miguel Ordeñana a biologist from the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles you spray a men's cologne — that's right Calvin Klein Obsession for Men on a tree branch near the centre of your camera's field of view. This odd preference was discovered by a researcher at the Bronx Zoo in New York who tried a whole bunch of different scents and found that the jaguars really, really liked Obsession.

Cube lightsail: Lightsail cubesat to be launched by Falcon Heavy : In a recent blogpost, +The Planetary Society announced that they would be launching a light sail (or solar sail) in Cubesat form via the +SpaceX Falcon Heavy. Why is this news? This would be the first time a Cubesat would demonstrate controlled solar sailing capability.

In a live webcast, The Planetary Society CEO Bill Nye announced that its long-awaited LightSail solar sail mission will launch to Earth orbit on a SpaceX Falcon Heavy, currently scheduled for an April 2016 liftoff. LightSail-1 and its parent satellite, Prox-1, will be on the same launch vehicle as the U.S. Air Force’s Space Test Program 2 (STP-2) mission. If successful, it will be the first CubeSat to demonstrate controlled solar sailing.

LightSail will go to an orbit about 720 km above Earth, stored inside the Prox-1, which was developed by theG... more »

Rosetta approaches Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko : After a long journey which began on March 2nd, 2004, The Rosetta robotic spacecraft dubbed 'The Comet chaser' has sighted its target. The comet is about 2.5 miles (four km) long and orbits the Sun every six-and-a-half years. The Spacecraft has a piggyback rider.... a lander called Philae which will detach from the Spacecraft in November and land on the Comet. It's been a long journey for Rosetta, but now it is nearly there!

Once at the comet Rosetta will follow it on its journey around the sun, performing extensive studies of the coma and the surface. And in November it will release the Philae lander, which if successful will be the first vehicle ever to land on a comet.

Rosetta will execute a pyramid-shaped orbit around the object, and it will employ the navcams to look for “landmarks” on the surface tound... more »

The Onion :  The onion (Allium cepa) is used as a vegetable and is the most widely cultivated species of the genus Allium. The humble Onion has been cultivated and modified by humans for over 5000 years.  Onions have been used for their medicinal properties and in food down the ages.

What makes you cry when cutting an Onion? : The component in an onion that makes your eyes water is called lachrymatory factor, from Latin lacrima, or “tear.” (How appropriate is that!) Lachrymatory factor irritates the eyes and stimulate the tear glands to produce tears, much like the action of a tear gas. Onions are rich in two health-benefiting compounds: flavonoids and sulfur-containing compounds. Flavonoids are potential antioxidants that could protect us against cancer, heart disease, and aging. They are often found at high concentrations in the skins and outer layers of onions with yellowor br... more »

The Foldscope: A $1 microscope : While looking at optics and diffraction limits, I came upon this amazing idea. It uses origami to create a microscope with a magnification of roughly 2000x! A simple idea which will go a long way to STEM education. The idea is still under testing, but it has generated enough interest to be funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, among others.

The basic principle of using a small spherical lens held close to the eye dates back to Antonie van Leeuwenhoek (1632-1723), who was the first to see single-celled organisms using such a lens held in a device of his own design. http://goo.gl/B2Hc9L

What is a ferrofluid? : We have been seeing these gifs for some time now... often called 'science gifs' and 'amazing.' But what is the science behind ferrofluids? Ferrofluids are actually ferromagnetic particles (particles which can be magnetized) by means of an external field - often forming permanent magnets. At slightly larger than 15 nanometers, these particles act as domains and individual atoms clump together to display magnetism.

But smaller than 15 nm, the particles do not retain any alignment to an externally applied field. They 'flip' once the external magnetic field is removed. A ferrofluid uses this effect of superparamagnetism and once nano-sized particles of a ferromagnetic material are suspended in a surfactant, you have a fluid which can be easily magnetized and demagnetized.

Superparamagnets: Superparamagnets have fluctuating... more »

While trying to edit my post, I ended up deleting it so here it is again. Apologies to all who were commenting on the earlier one!

*Mind-controlled Technology : We are seeing more and more of this. From the control of a simple toy to the control of quadcopter and now mind controlled aircraft, gaming and robots. In some ways, the future is already here. Some of the applications have still not been dreamed of. But either ways, this is another SF trope which is now a reality.

Mind-Controlled Quadcopter  : A team of researchers at the University of Minnesota has just created a quadcopter that can perform feats of aerial agility, controlled entirely by the pilot’s thoughts. Using electroencephalography (EEG), a non-invasive cap fitted with 64 electrodes reads the electrical impulses of the brain to control the copter.

What are Plasmons? : Consider a thought experiment. If we have a sheet of metal with holes in it (pic bottom right) and we shine a torch through it, we find that the amount of light which makes it through to the other side depends on the size of the holes. Smaller the holes, less is the light which makes it through. But when the size of the holes is around half the wavelength of light, almost 80% of the light makes it through. This is even though the holes are less than 30% of the metal plate. How is this possible?

Plasmons are surface waves on the metal plate itself : The incident light on the metal plate excites the electron waves on the surface of the plate. The sloshing electrons on the metal plate behave like a fluid and propagates along the metal plates and through it. (See pic top right)

So what is special about plasmons? : They are coupled excitation and also give... more »

Nanoprobes as explorers and more : Getting to asteroids is an expensive business, especially the cost per weight in sending anything out of earth's orbit is around $1 million for every kilogram. Space agencies and researchers are always looking for cheaper, more efficient ways to explore asteroids. One such proposal caught my eye. Especially since it involves the Nano world.

Visiting Asteroids With Fleets of Nanoprobes : The proposal, known as the Swarm Flyby Gravimetry, was recently awarded a Phase I grant in the NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts (NIAC) program. The goal of the swarm is to create a cheap, fast way to study asteroids by using dozens of microprobes that would scatter around an object in space. A larger probe would gather all the measurements of their movements around the asteroid and combine them into a more complete picture. (Nanoprobes need to be small and... more »

Infrared Dawn : I have been following the next big story in astronomy, and that is undoubtedly the emergence of the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) which is an origami-inspired infrared telescope which will be placed most probably in the Lagrange point (L2) which means after unfolding, the telescope will keep up with the Earth's revolution around the Sun. Why is it exciting? It is like a Hubble on steroids. Astronomers don't even know how much they will learn once the JWST sees first light.

Article Extract: Ball Aerospace had delivered all 18 hexagonal segments of the observatory’s honeycomb-like, 6.5-meter primary mirror, designed to look into a past 13 billion years distant. From an observation platform, you could see one of the mirrors on display in the Spacecraft Systems Development and Integration Facility, the largest clean room in the world.

Love me love my microbiome : Some researchers are now considering the microbiome as a separate organ.  What is the microbiome really? The human microbiome is the is the sum total of microorganisms, that resides in the skin, saliva, GI tract, in fact all over and inside the body. They include bacteria, fungi, and archaea. Some of these organisms perform tasks that are useful for us. However, the majority have been too poorly researched for us to understand the role they play.

How does it all work? : We used to think our relationship with bacteria was simple; there were good ones that kept our digestive tracts healthy and there were bad ones that made us sick. We now know that many bacteria can play both roles, living happily in us or on us as part of a healthy microbiome, but capable of turning nasty under certain conditions. Now there are claims that a truly villainous bacterium... more »

One of the few things you don't want to hear : Lapse in safety procedures in the CDC may have scientists exposed to the Bacillus anthracis or Anthrax. Apparently someone did not ensure that the bacteria was inactive.....

Article Extract: In a surprising lapse, around 75 U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention personnel may have been exposed to anthrax. So far, however, everyone is well and there seems to be little threat outside of those exposed.

The CDC offered its exposed staffers a course of antibiotics and a shot of an anthrax vaccine, and no one has shown any external signs of the illness, which is not contagious. "Based on the investigation to date, CDC believes that other CDC staff, family members, and the general public are not at any risk and do not need to take any protective action."

The exposure was the result of a mistake. The... more »

The Phoenix Towers : In a slightly over-the-top idea, China is now looking at creating the world's tallest building. And making it green. The mish-mash of technologies is a little hard to comprehend, but as the architects and project consultants themselves say, it's intentionally made that way. I like the idea that the towers are to be fuchsia pink....

Article Extract: The paired Phoenix towers will be built on an island and combine every sort of green technology, both feasible and far-fetched. Plus, they’ll be bright pink. The Phoenix Towers will be built in China’s 10th-biggest city, Wuhan, which is located in the center of the country. The city is split between the banks of the Yangtze River and riddled with lakes. Given its proximity to moving water, it’s only natural that the towers be built with renewable energy in mind. The taller, “male” tower, named Feng, willloom one k... more »

Why do soap bubbles sometimes appear colored and sometimes appear transparent? : This is an interesting question and leads down many paths. To start to answer this question, we need to understand the nature of a thin film and how light acts on it.

Glass window thought experiment : Imagine for instance you are looking through a window at night. If you shine a torch through the window, you can see a bit of light reflected back. This is because not only does the light pass through the window, it was two reflections - one from the front of the glass sheet, and another through the back of the glass sheet. If the glass sheet is made very very thin, we notice that lesser and lesser reflections are seen. Why is this? The very thin transparent surfaces often display 'destructive interference.' Out of phase wavelengths cancel out. And you get either a colored image or none at all.... more »

Why Hard disk drives need new technology : While reading up on the nanotechnology involved in HDDs, some interesting points came to light. For one, it has been around two years since there has been an increase in the capacity (Areal density) of HDDs. Since the bits which are magnetized to store data are really small, but still larger than nanosized, the boundary between bits is a jagged line.

How does this work? : A Cobalt- Chromium alloy is the material of choice in making a HDD. Since CoCr phase seperates into 'domains' where individual atoms display a residual magnetism. Writer head fields of 15,000 gauss magnetize the fields. The doped CoCr is easy to write.

Why is there a limit? : Write too densely, and bits interact with neighboring bits causing noise (Bits interact which causes fluctuations in their moment).  If you reduce the size of the domains... more »

Holographic Projectors for Smartphones may not be as far away as you think : Ostendo Technologies has been working on the concept for the past nine years. And while others have created holographic images, the company has created a chipset which is small enough to fit into a cellphone, which is called the 'Quantum Photonic Imager.'

Article Extract: The Ostendo Quantum Photonic Imager combines an image processor with a wafer containing radically miniaturized light-emitting diodes (LEDs). The system can control the color, brightness and angle of more than a million individual beams of light. During a demonstration, six Ostendo units laid together beamed a 3-D image of green dice “spinning in the air,” according to the Journal report: “The image and motion appeared consistent, irrespective of the position of the viewer.”

Water conflicts : While reading more about water purification and toxins in drinking water, I found this infographic (http://goo.gl/novgcL) which attempts to look at a prediction of where the next conflict will emerge. In combination with climate change, there will soon be wars... for drinking water. Incidentally, more people have a cellphone than a toilet. Surprising? not really. This post focuses on the removal of Arsenic from water using Nanotech....

Water Crisis : The water you drink today has likely been around in one form or another since dinosaurs roamed the Earth, hundreds of millions of years ago. The amount of freshwater on the planet has remained fairly constant over time but the population has exploded. This means that every year competition for a clean, copious supply of water for sustaining life intensifies. Water scarcity is an abstract concept to many and a stark... more »

Tiny transformer houses : I'm wondering if this is the future.... small energy grubbing transformer houses. Real estate is at a premium, so the idea does appeal. Maybe a hybrid house with solar panels and created from usable materials such as shipping containers would be ideal. In any case, this caught my eye, and some of the videos are fun to watch.

Article extract: The Yo! Sushi founder unveiled the prototype for his Yo! Home, an 860-square-foot wonder in which nearly every surface—walls, beds, floors, tables—can fade away at a push of a button. Outfitted with stage-scenery mechanics, the master bedroom can hover above the sunken living room, guest space rolls out from the desk, and the dining table springs up from the floor.

The Exosuit (ADS) : the deep seas on our own planet are less explored than space. One of the issues has been pressure; human physiology sets limits to what depths divers can go. And robotic and marine submersibles are not as nimble as one would want.

One example of the sea floor's secrets is enumerated in Nature magazine: With the help of green fluorescent protein from the Aequorea victoria jellyfish, scientists have been able to watch processes — such as the development of nerve cells in the brain — previously invisible to them. Work with this protein is so significant, it won Osamu Shimomura, Martin Chalfie and Roger Tsien the 2008 Nobel Prize for Chemistry.

Molecular Gastronomy : is the area of cooking in which you are more likely to find chefs in lab coats than in any other attire. Not only are they using Physics and Chemistry to adapt and change textures and flavors, but it's surprising to the palate.

The main picture shows a spinach sphere in a truffle foam (it's titled bacon and eggs) but it would be a wonderful surprise to the taste buds. The kitchen is now seeing machines like the centrifuge, water bath etc. which were traditionally found only in labs.

Article Extract: Cocktails in ice spheres. Caviar made of olive oil. Disappearing transparent raviolis. Sound cool? Well these are all examples of Molecular Gastronomy. Molecular Gastronomy blends physics and chemistry to transform the tastes and textures of food.

Molecular gastronomy experiments have resulted in new innovative dishes like hot gelatins, airs,... more »

Benzene : While studying organic chemistry, one of my professors inspired me by showing the class the structure of Benzene. In the days of my college, all he had was some plasticine and toothpicks. He had made a model of the Benzene structure. That fascinated me, and finally I decided to study more... The humble Benzene ring structure was dreamt up by Kekulé... a chemist who had a dream of a snake eating it's own tail.

Article Extract: In 1890, at the 25th anniversary of the benzene structure discovery, Friedrich August Kekulé, a German chemist, told of two dreams that he had at key moments of his work. In his first dream, he saw atoms dance around and link to one another. He awakened and immediately began to sketch what he saw in his dream. Later, Kekulé had another dream, in which he saw atoms dance around, then form themselves into strings, moving about in a snake-like fashion.Th... more »

What is Google internet upto : I've been following the story of +Google's acquisitions and plans. After +Project Loon (balloon internet) there was the story about the acquisition of +Titan Aerospace (solar powered long term drones- which can stay up in the air for years) and now there is news about Google's purchase of 180 new satellites through O3b Networks.

I would say hurry up Google, we need good, stable fast internet all over the world!

Article Link: Google would not be the first to use satellites to cover the earth in internet. The early dotcom boom of the late 1990s saw companies like Iridium, Globalstar, and Teledisc market satellite phones and promise internet service, but most failed or declared bankruptcy in the face of tremendous initial costs and poor management. In 2010, the Pentagon tested routing internet through a satellite.

Why do we sneeze? : Historically sneezing has been associated with everything from breath to life to omens.... but we know that sneezing works to clear the nasal passages from foreign material..or do we? There is more to the story. Read on...

Article Extract: Everybody sneezes. And that's a good thing, because it's actually one of the body's natural defenses, designed to help get rid of foreign invaders that sneak into your nose and threaten your lungs and other body parts. The medical term for sneezing is sternutation, a rather complex process that includes your brain, nerves, and muscles all over your body. http://goo.gl/WhzNqN

Pac-mecium : I have yet to go into the details of how this works, but the story is something which caught my eye. Called 'biotic games' the idea is to use microbes such as paramecia to play games and educate at the same time.

Article Extract: Videogames may seem like the last place for fruitful work in biotechnology, but Stanford University bioengineer Ingmar Riedel-Kruse has enlisted living microbes into games. His custom electronics and augmented-reality software coax microorganisms to play key roles in Pac-Man, Brick Breaker, and other reimagined 8-bit titles.

Riedel-Kruse uses single-celled protozoans called paramecia that typically live in ponds. Changes in an electrical field can cause some species to alter their steering (a behavior called galvanotaxis). The microbes selected for the videogames swim toward electricity using cilia that cover their bodies.

What are quantum Dots? : While taking a course in Nanotechnology (http://goo.gl/Yo6Cfw), I've been exploring and researching on the nature of nanocrystals. What is nanotechnology? It's all about the size. One nanometer corresponds to 1x10^-9 meters. That is one-billionth of a meter. But the amazing thing is once you go down to that size, the properties of everyday substances changes quite significantly.

Very small crystals (nanocrystals) of semiconductor materials exhibit quantum mechanical properties. Besides other properties, we can specifically notice that when we reduce the size of these materials to 2 to 15 nanometers (Just around 20-50 atoms in diameter), the material which has a characteristic wavelength is now 'quantum confined'. This gives rise different color of light emission under ultraviolet light.

SpaceShipTwo : Has been ticking off the boxes in its testing phase. SpaceShipTwo (SS2) is a suborbital air-launched spaceplane. The mothership is the jet-powered White Knight Two, which will launch it at approx. 50,000 feet. After flight, SS2 glides back to the spaceport and lands like a conventional aircraft. The space tourism bandwagon notwithstanding, what is interesting is the research platform availability.

While the payload pricing is closer to sounding rockets, it's re-usability will bring down the cost of research payloads.

Article Extract: (From Jan) SS2 was lifted by the double-fuselage White Knight Two carrier airplane to a height of 46,000 feet (11.7 km). At that point, SS2 was dropped, and its hybrid rocket engine, capable of delivering a thrust of 60,000 lb (267 kN) for a period of 70 seconds, was fired for 20 seconds, for a top speed in excess of Mach 1.4 and... more »

Dog people & Cat people : While I found this study while looking for something else, I'm not very sure the methodology is the best. So let me preface this by saying both dogs and cats are great as pets. They do have a beneficial relationship with their humans. Yes they do.

Article Extract: "Dog people" and "cat people" really do have different personalities, according to a new study. People who said they were dog lovers in the study tended to be more lively — meaning they were more energetic and outgoing — and also tended to follow rules closely. Cat lovers, on the other hand, were more introverted, more open-minded and more sensitive than dog lovers. Cat people also tended to be non-conformists, preferring to be expedient rather than follow the rules.

The researchers surveyed 600 college students, asking whether they would identify themselves asdog... more »

Dart Laptop Adapter : Anyone who has carried their laptop around has felt the weight of these beasts. Some of them are almost as bulky and heavy as the laptop itself. Now MIT spinout FINsix has invented a 'brick' which is one quarter the size and one sixth the weight. And it is just as efficient and is much cooler than an adapter. Meet the tiny Dart.

The Kickstarter raised just over half a million dollars and pre-orders are closed. read on...

Article Extract: The Dart runs on novel very-high frequency (VHF) power-conversion technology, co-invented by Sagneri, that delivers energy more often and in smaller chunks than traditional adapters, ultimately wasting less energy. It does so by making the adapter's switching frequency—which transfers energy from the adapter to the battery—run 1,000 times faster.

Sharks : While we are aware of their awesome power, there is so much which is not commonly known about sharks. Right from the fact that they have evolved complex methods of detecting their prey's electric fields to the fact that they have cavity proof teeth (since they are covered in fluoride) or that some species can clone themselves (an example of parthenogenesis)... the list goes on and on...

Sharks also have been studied for their secrets... some species when turned upside down go into what is called as tonic state (or tonic immobility), their skeleton is made of cartilage, which is light and flexible, unlike dolphins and whales, they do not need to surface to breathe...and they sleep while swimming.

Shattered : Well its not a new study, but it was interesting to see how people were unable to tell red from white wines in a study. Even the experts. We already know how intimately taste and smell are related (Studies show if you close your nose while eating, a lot of food will not have flavor). So you may want to hold back on splurging on the expensive wine and go for a good quality but non-brand name one.

Article extract: In what is hands down my favorite experiment on the limitations of the human palate ever performed, researcher Frédéric Brochet invited 57 wine experts to give their opinions on what appeared to be two glasses of wine - one red, and one white. The wines were actually the exact same white wine; the "red" had simply been mixed with red food coloring.

The experts proceeded to describe the "red" wine in language typically reserved forc... more »

The Smithsonian's "The Future is Here Festival' : I wrote about this earlier in a post, with my own list of what would be future and emerging technologies here http://goo.gl/62x7pg . (I wish they had covered some of my list - do take a gander!!!)

While some of the technologies were showcased, it was more of a festival of people who had a take the future. They discussed stuff on various topics - some of which I reproduce here. The video is a nice piece of PR :)

Article Extract: Joshua Bell's talk, "From Hal to Siri to Us: Voices of the Future" explored our multifaceted mobile culture—how we're constantly changing it, and how it's constantly changing us.

Cooling with sound waves : Thermoacoustics has been used by Penn State Univ. researchers to cool Ben and Jerry's Ice cream freezer in the past. Now the new goal is to use it to cool air. Thermoacoustic cooling has been theorized for some time now. The gas used for cooling is Helium and is environmentally friendly compared to traditional air-conditioning gases.

Article Extract: In 2002, Ben & Jerry's funded the group to develop a more environmentally friendly ice cream freezer. Now ARPA-E has awarded them a nearly $3 million grant and tasked them with scaling up that system and creating a 1-ton prototype. Improving the energy efficiency of the process is a major goal, said Matt Poese, who studies acoustics at Penn State and is one of the lead engineers for the project.

The Little CubeSat That Could : CubeSats cram everything into a space not much bigger than a Rubik cube. The size and weight of these little critters make them an economical way for citizen-led access to space in a way which was not possible before. I have been following the progress of CubeSat manufacture, development and launches for some time now. Here are three examples with links to earlier posts as well :) The cost? From $125,000 to $75,000 and even lower.

SkyCube : In 2011, after watching NASA’s final space shuttle launch, astronomy-app developer Tim DeBenedictis decided to crowdfund SkyCube. The 2.9-pound CubeSat launched to the ISS and astronauts deployed it. Backers can use an app called Satellite Safari to take photos and tweet from orbit. After its 90-day mission, SkyCube will inflate a polyethylene balloon, drag itself into the atmosphere, and burn up.

Scientists visualize experiment to turn Light Into Matter : Yes, it may be possible, and the experiment will tell us; though headlines have been screaming about light being converted into matter already.... But other than the obvious jokes about making food from light, it has far-reaching implications in peering at events just after the big bang. If Oliver Pike can experimentally prove the Breit-Wheeler calculations, it would be an event indeed. Fascinating.

Article Extract: The proposed experiment, reported in the journal Nature photonics, would recreate events that occurred in the first 100 seconds of the big bang, as well as in cosmic rays and gamma ray bursts. In 1934, scientists Gregory Breit and John Wheeler suggested light can be converted into matter by smashing two photons together to create an electron and its antimatter counterpart, a positron.
