Electricity from the Asphalt

In Israel learned to produce the electricity from the asphalt. Passing on highway cars will produce electricity to its pressure. New technology are experiencing on northern Israel. However, the project has still many unresolved issues. When the invention is go to the masses is still unknown.One of the problems, not relating directly to development, lies in the fact that the inventors don’t know how to smuggle the device in abroad.

Piezoelectric Plates for Charging Batteries

Researchers from the University of RMIT (Australia) and Australian National University, offered to produce batteries that accumulate the electric charge produced by piezoelectric plates. These plates produce electricity at a pressure on them. As explained by Madhu Baskaran, one of the researchers, plate, for example, can be built into the sole of the shoe that while jogging to produce electricity,

Airplane on Vegetable Oil

According to scientists, very soon, the aviation industry will be harmless to the environment. British airline Thomson Airways plans to make first flight its airliner that runs on vegetable oil, to Spain.How expected it will be in July 28, 2011.After that Thomson Airways will receive the necessary approvals, one of its planes will fly from Birmingham in the direction of the city of Palma, Mayorka.While that the production of vegetable oils for aircraft more costly than traditional jet fuel production, the company took the initiative reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

The Volcano Nabro by NASA’s EO-1 Satellite

From a height of about 700 kilometers EO-1 satellite could directly look into the crater of the volcano. Using the pictures not only in visible, but also in the infrared range, the researchers created a false color image, which shows the hottest regions in the vicinity of the vent. In particular, fresh lava flows and emissions of gas and dust into the atmosphere are well visible.

The Human Brain Analogous Computer

Professor Henry Markram, intends to create the largest computer in the world, which will be analogue of the human brain. The Human Brain Project, which will be implemented at the Federal Polytechnic School of Lausanne on the shores of Lake Geneva, aims to create a carbon copy of the brain in 2023.

Martian Droplike Islands

According to team of researchers led by Lorena Moskardelli from the University of Texas at Austin (USA) Martian droplike “islands” have formed deep under the water. Scientists emphasize striking similarity between the features of the Martian terrain and elongated hills on the seabed off the coast of Trinidad, confirming the hypothesis that in ancient times the northern plains of the Red Planet covered by the ocean.

A New Method to Combat With Warming

UN is considering a project to output into Earth orbit the huge mirrors that reflect sunlight back into space. Thus, scientists hope to reduce the rate of global warming.A mirror can be an “umbrella” from a thin reflective membrane.This isn’t the only way to combat global warming proposed by scientists. They consider worthy of consideration even methods such as whitening clouds with sea water
