Last week, scientists from the National Solar Observatory predicted a large sunspot would emerge before Thanksgiving. Now the sunspot – AR2786 – is in view. Here’s how they did it.
Being indoors with other people is a recipe for spreading the coronavirus. But removing airborne particles through proper ventilation and air filtration can reduce some of that risk.
Researchers present a range of studies investigating the aerodynamics of infectious disease. Their results suggest strategies for lowering risk based on a rigorous understanding of how infectious particles mix with air in confined spaces.

A new material for wind blades that can be recycled could transform the wind industry, rendering renewable energy more sustainable than ever before while lowering costs in the process. Researchers demonstrated the feasibility of thermoplastic resin by manufacturing a 9-meter-long wind turbine blade using this novel resin.
Among Google News’ top search results today under “climate change,” the search engine monopoly is promoting an article claiming stupid Americans are inexplicably flocking to areas being battered by a ‘climate crisis’ – areas that the “climate emergency” will soon…
(Universitat Pompeu Fabra – Barcelona) They follow similar patterns to those found in the US, according to a study of which Núria Almiron, a researcher at the Department of Communication, is the first author, carried out in collaboration with researchers from the University of Colorado Boulder (USA) and the International University of Catalonia within the framework of the THINKClima project.
Trump administration official who questions global warming to run key climate program – Washington Post
Legates’s views on climate run counter to the scientific consensus that human activities — primarily the burning of fossil fuels — have generated greenhouse gases that are causing global temperatures to warm, ice sheets to melt, sea levels to rise…
(Nanjing Agricultural University The Academy of Science) Fighting the imminent climate change crisis has now become a global priority. In this regard, scientists in the US have discussed how gene editing technology can modify plants and organisms to reduce atmospheric CO2 and slow down climate change. They also consider potential obstacles to widespread use of these genetically modified organisms, including ethical problems and public resistance due to safety concerns.
