New space-borne instrument to track greenhouse gases, ozone destroyers, and other pollutants
... first time the dynamic processes that cause water vapor
filaments and tendrils to break off and mix with other gases in the troposphere. Good and bad ozone at different altitudes At 50 kilometers (30 miles) above the ground, ozone is good: it blocks dangerous ultraviolet radiation and prevents it from h...

...c capsules, which cause the release of an odorless vapor
through the pores that insects find unappetizing, also can be effective. Another approach involves coating exposed skin areas with a bath oil product called Skin So Soft, which has proven so effective that U.S. armed forces operating in swampy, mosq...
Laboratory grows world record length carbon nanotube
...nanotube using a process called catalytic chemical vapor
deposition from ethanol (alcohol) vapor. Discovered in 1991 by Japanese scientist Sumio Iijima, carbon nanotubes are cylindrical carbon molecules that are very similar in structure to a fullerene, or buckyball, but instead of being a sphere, the nano...
