A hybrid bio-technology could pave the way for future space missions.
Oxygen? In this economy?! Pffff.
Should everything go according to plan, ESA wants to launch the mission by 2025.
I wonder if it smells stale.
Attack the enemy where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.
“Piracy and geopolitical tensions” kept it hidden from the scientific community until now.
And exercise doesn’t fix it.
It’s like the ocean is having a heart attack.
Evolution doesn’t always procrastinate. But when it does, it’s for 2 billion years.
There’s no proof. But the conditions were right for it to happen.
The new findings call our current theories on the mass extinction event into question.
But maybe our neighbour wasn’t always so red-faced after all.
South Korean designer Jeabyun Yeon has just unveiled his new concept of a scuba mask that would allow anyone to breathe underwater without requiring air tanks. His design, named the Triton, includes two arms linked to a mouth piece. The branching arms are designed to extract free oxygen atoms from the water and supply breathable air directly to the user. But I’m not sold on it just yet.
For the first time, astronomers have detected primordial oxygen gassing out from a comet
NASA has partnered with a private company to design and build an oxygen production facility for a Martian outpost or colony. The make the oxygen, bacteria and algae would use the nitrogen-rich Martian soil to make the precious oxygen, essential for the astronauts’ survival. It can be used to make air, water and fuel.
When under threat, the pufferfish quickly inflates into a spherical shape to help it ward off and escape predators. Until now, biologist had thought that in this state the pufferfish – also known as the blowfish, toadfish or sea squab – holds its breath all the while, but this assumption has been overturn by the findings made by Australian researchers who
Researchers from Denmark have synthesized crystalline materials that can bind and store oxygen in high concentrations, releasing them when needed. A single crystal about the size of a sponge can suck all the oxygen from a room. Naturally, there are many potential applications for this type of technology. The most obvious one would be breathing underwater or in outer space. We
Without oxygen, your brain would shutdown within five minutes or so and you, as a person, along with it. Deprived of this fundamental element, brain cells can’t produce energy anymore and wither and die. Breathing is important, that’s pretty settled but what happens if you can’t rely on your lungs anymore. A team of researchers led by Harvard Medical School’s John N.
