La reducción de la contaminación puede perjudicar a un país a corto plazo

Científicos del Instituto de Investigación en Matemáticas de la Universidad de Valladolid han demostrado de forma teórica que si un país disminuye sus emisiones, otros aprovechan la coyuntura para incrementarlas. Los investigadores apuestan por incentivos para que los países 'miopes' o sin visión de futuro que dejan de serlo se vean compensados.

A Sprinkle of Seaweed can Eliminate Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Cattle

One could say that we have a beef with the rising amount of methane (CH4) in the atmosphere: although this powerful greenhouse gas breaks down much faster than carbon dioxide, it traps 86 times more heat than CO2 over a 20-year span. Human activity has been the chief source of the increase in modern CH4 levels, having increased by about 150 percent since 1750, with about half of all human-generated methane coming from our livestock -- particularly from the planet's 1.5 billion cows. However, a new study has found that spicing a cow's feed with simple seaweed can cut a burping bovine's methane production by up to 99 percent.

Honduras: UFO Sightings On The Rise

Honduras: UFO Sightings On The Rise


Tegucigalpa, Honduras -- Her sleep was disturbed by the parrot squawking at that time of the morning. Upon stepping out to the yard, she found the bird staring skyward and her amazement was indescribable as she witnessed a luminous object moving beside the sun. The object descended and its surroundings acquired an aqua-green intensity before it sped off to the north at a tremendous rate of speed.

The time was around 6:00 in the morning last Sunday. The singular vision shocked her out of her Sunday slumber, giving her enough time to reach for her smartphone and take three photos of the strange object as it moved in the heavens.

The first two photos showed a bright spot, but in the third, the object lit up in such a way that it made it clear that it had a force field. When it dashed off into the clear blue skies, "Sandrita" was sure that she'd seen an unidentified flying object (UFO).

Others in Honduras, much like "Sandrita" (who preferred to conceal her surname), and hundreds of others around the world are seeing from one to entire flotillas of objects, as well as the added shock of encountering one of their occupants or extraterrestrial beings.

The event has left the girl from a Comayaguela neighborhood full of questions after having photographed a UFO without meaning to do so. Many others worldwide are also wondering about the purpose or goals such craft might have.

Humanity has kept records of so-called extraterrestrial contact since the dawn of times. An increase in UFO sighting reports is occurring in every country on the planet, including Honduras.

June 2017 was only the Third Hottest June on Record -- But Don't Celebrate Yet!

 June 2017 was the third-hottest month of June on record, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), putting 2017 on track to be the second hottest year on record. On the surface, this sounds like good news, but this means that 2017 will still be hotter than the years before 2014-2016's record-breaking El Niño, an event that pushed 2016 into being the current temperature record holder.

Observan anomalías cuánticas en el estado sólido de la física por primera vez

Expertos de IBM Research de Zúrich y otros organismos, entre ellos el Instituto de Física Teórica de Madrid, han observado un fenómeno en la Tierra que se pensaba que solo había ocurrido a distancias de cientos de años luz. Los investigadores han observado un efecto cuántico conocido como anomalía axial-gravitacional, que rompe una de las leyes clásicas de conservación, como la carga, la energía y el momento lineal. El resultado podría conducir a un modelo más completo para la comprensión del universo primitivo y para mejorar el proceso de conversión de energía en aparatos electrónicos.

Jurassic Slow-Poke: The T-Rex May Not have been Able to Run at All

 Who can run faster: A Tyrannosaurus rex, or Jeff Goldblum? Researchers are now putting their bets on Mr. Goldblum, in light of a new finding that might settle the debate regarding whether or not the tyrant lizard king could run fast to begin with -- or at all, for that matter.

Argentina: Spectacular Bolide Stuns Onlookers

An intensely bright light was seen in the heavens over many aprts of the country. Theories emerged and the we now have the answer. What was it?

The skies over Argentina were illuminated for a few seconds, startling people who were able to see it from various parts of the country. Was it a UFO, a shooting star? people wondered. But there was another solution.

"It was a space rock. A bolide. These are rocks larger than the palm of one's hand which disintegrate at high altitude as they enter our atmosphere," explained Jorge Coghlan, astronomer and boardmember of the Centro de Observadores del Espacio (Space Watch Center).

"Given that it was a larger rock, it can even light up the earth as it enters the atmosphere." the expert told the Cadena 3 web portal

Arranca la construcción de un gran experimento para entender los neutrinos

Una ceremonia celebrada el viernes en Dakota del Sur marca el inicio de la excavación de la instalación que albergará LBNF/DUNE, el mayor experimento sobre neutrinos de EE.UU. Cuatro instituciones científicas españolas participan en el proyecto para estudiar a fondo esta elusiva partícula elemental.

Mapean en 3D el núcleo de una supernova

Astrónomos de España y EE UU han determinado la estructura en tres dimensiones de la emisión molecular de una supernova. Esto significa que han podido observar en 3D los restos de la estrella tras su explosión, algo que no había sido posible hasta ahora. Los investigadores han utilizado el radiotelescopio ALMA, situado en Atacama (Chile), para estudiar el centro de la SN1987A.

Algunas imágenes del XII Festival aéreo de Gijón

Esta mañana, como ya viene siendo habitual en los últimos años, he asistido al Festival aéreo de Gijón (este año con más motivo si cabe, dado el tema de mi último libro, escrito junto a José Manuel Gil). Como siempre, he hecho un montón de fotos pero por falta de tiempo tardaré bastante en procesarlas. De momento, para no olvidar la tradición, he aquí algunas de las imágenes que tomé esta mañana, a modo de sencillo homenaje a todo el mundo de la aviación.

TEPCO Plans on Dumping 777,000 tons of Contaminated Water into the Ocean

Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) has announced that they plan dump 777,000 tons of tritium-contaminated water into the Pacific Ocean, as part of their multi-billion dollar recovery efforts at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. The total amount of radioactive material involved would be approximately 115 times the annual safety limit for this type of discharge. The move has yet to be approved by the Japanese government, although TEPCO says that they still plan to go ahead with the decision.
