IFL Science

Postby Skye1013 » Mon Aug 25, 2014 11:43 am

Ok, so this is a thread for any cool/interesting things happening that are science-related.

I think we had a similar thread once (that was focused on something specific) but I decided against hunting for it and necroing it.

Anywho... my reason for creating the thread!

A group of students are in the process of creating a nail polish that can help detect date rape drugs (you stir your drink with your finger and it's supposed to change the color.)

An interesting website I found that helps you understand the vastness of space.

"Space," it says, "is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mindbogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist's, but that's just peanuts to space, listen..." - HHGTTG

That's pretty much all you need to know.

I had the patience some time ago to go through that. It's amazingly well done !

BAM! HI HI ALL!


I was reading about the deep-sea animal species Dendrogramma enigmatica. Why is it built the way that it is? haha at 3000' of water no less! Food enters and exists the same hole?!?! Why!?

I find it interesting that we are always finding new things that challenge what we know. That is why I love science so much. The question! The pursuit of the answer!


Regards,

I was reading today that the USGS confirmed the Soviets findings about Afghanistan's rare earth elements. The tech they used is freaking cool! Magnetic and gravity survey's along with a hyperspectral survey. COME ON!

Those that control the rare earth control the tech of the future? Alaska has a huge amount of it too though! GO GO!
