The Dead Water Phenomenon

What the hell is that? Confused 

Nope, it's not some TV show. Laughing + Tongue sticking out 
Mad Scientist It's some phenomenon taking place in any ocean and some river mouths.
Dead water can frustrate you indeed. Happy with a sweat 
You just get trapped by it when fresh water from a melting glacier or a lake and the sea get mixed up to some point.
Shocked You see, they're not the same water!
Sediments and water density have a lot to do with this mysterious event. Detective
There are times where both kinds of water form sheets and strange currents that can even make your ship get stuck. Feeling sick 
Now scientists Mad Scientist unlike this one fear that might have caused the famous queen Cleopatra and her lover had lost a naval battle in Actium. Curiously her opponents owned ships that were weaker than hers and still defeated her navy.

RE: Weird Science

A New Dinosaur
Vectaerovenator inopinatus

I'm posting this here because it's supposed to be a scientific discovery. Besides there's a Canadian forumer that grows desperate whenever she hears about dinosaur related stuff. Nope, she's never played golf nor hockey. Laughing

https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-hampshire-53738762

In 2019 the vectaerovenator inopinatus was unearthed in Shanklin, Isle of Wight but it took them about a year to realize it was related to T. Rex and birds! Shocked
This animal is considered a theropod and has got some interesting air sacs.
Theropods feature hollow bones and three-toed limbs and are considered to be carnivorous but some of them might have had quite different tastes like preferring to consume lots of fish for instance.

BBC Wrote:These air sacs, also seen in modern birds, were extensions of the lung, and it is likely they "helped fuel an efficient breathing system while also making the skeleton lighter", the University of Southampton said.
Parts of its skeleton must have been rather delicate.
It is likely that the Vectaerovenator lived in an area just north of where its remains were found, with the carcass having washed out into the shallow sea nearby.

What a curious way to become aerodynamic up to some point! Shocked
Sad Sadly, his story didn't end up very well... Thinking Could this mean his  environment was quite hostile?

Where can you pay him a visit? Happy with a sweat 
That's a curious question indeed. You'd need to travel to the Dinosaur Isle Museum at Sandown where they're being displayed.

Paul Farrell, from Ryde Wrote:I was walking along the beach, kicking stones and came across what looked like a bone from a dinosaur.

Who would tell kicking stones would pay off? Confused

RE: Weird Science

The Coronavirus Has a Weakness

Disclaimer: I'm fully aware the source is in Spanish only but it's not my fault. BBC News didn't seem to quickly translate it to English for the discovery was made in Mexico and not in any English speaking country.

https://www.bbc.com/mundo/noticias-53812444

Why should this discovery be sensational at all? Happy with a sweat 
The reason behind this impulse is that it was not MEDICINE but PHYSICS what let us now learn about a total new way to fight Corona-Chan and reduce the risk of letting the virus mutate many times in order to increase its chances of defeating the human antibodies.
Huh? Physics you say!?
Grinning Yes, Physics!

A Mexican scientist found out that the SARS-CoV-2 and its cousin number 1 share a common trait, their spike has a POSITIVE magnetic charge. It's not just its own or the receptor's shape and aminoacids what lets it enter your cells with ease, its charge is an important factor as well. The attraction is what makes them get near the ACE2 receptor, a very specific enzyme receptor found in your heart, your lungs, your kidneys and your stomach. She altered this charge and it reduced its attraction some 30%! Shocked 

They're still studying this method and some other properties found in the virus spike to further increase the power of this alterations up to some 90%.
How would that ever be possible? Really?

Well, they've managed to block one of three energies that involved in the spike's ability to connect to the human cell receptor. By creating a polymer that could block all three of them would reduce its chances to harm you up to a point where your body could handle it on its own. Even people fearing their immune system would overreact would no longer get overwhelmed for it'd only need to take care of some 10% of the viruses. As far as they've studied it, the virus could not develop a resistance in time to turn the tide.

Let's see if we get more exciting scientific news in the near future! Grinning

RE: Weird Science

Water Exists on the Moon

https://www.theguardian.com/science/2020...ts-confirm
The Guardian Wrote:Using images from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, Paul Hayne, of the University of Colorado in Boulder, and colleagues mapped the distribution of smaller craters and areas of rough ground, and calculated that approximately 40,000 km2 of the lunar surface has the capacity to trap water. Although this still only represents 0.15% of the lunar surface, their existence may also reduce the risk of conflict between moon-faring nations.

But how do they know there's water on the moon? Confused It could have been hydroxyl alias a molecule consisting of one hydrogen atom and a single oxygen atom.

The Guardian Wrote:Casey Honniball at Nasa’s ASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland, US, and colleagues have detected a chemical signature that is unambiguously H2O, by measuring the wavelengths of sunlight reflecting off the moon’s surface.

Professor Paul Hyne Wrote:With billions of potential water reservoirs scattered over the polar regions, the focus should be shifted away from the handful of well-known large craters and towards the multitude of potential landing sites our study reveals.

So far eight countries including the United Kingdom have signed the Artemis Accords. These would regulate the exploration of our only natural satellite.
Sad Sadly, Russia and China don't seem to be interested in joining them.

Anyway, scientists still debate on how they might be able to find those water reservoirs on the moon. Are they mixed with lunar glass? I mean, soil turned into glass after a meteorite has hit the surface. Or are we talking about tiny ice crystals? Plus extracting the water is no easy task at all.

The Guardian Wrote:Harvesting it from dark, steep-walled craters where the temperature rarely climbs above -230C – which is where the bulk of any frozen water was assumed to lie – would be a perilous undertaking.
