NASA astronauts will be receiving and filming bottles of Estée Lauder skincare aboard the International Space Station later this month, according to CNN Business.
Aboard the orbiting laboratory, astronauts receive everything from groundbreaking NASA experiments to Nickelodeon slime. Now, the crew aboard the space station will receive 10 bottles of Estée Lauder skincare serum, which they will film and photograph in microgravity. The company will be able to use footage captured by the astronauts…
Geologists Have Found the Earth’s Missing Tectonic Plate – Universe Today
A pair of geologists have developed a technique for finding subducted tectonic plates. They’ve found one that nobody was sure existed.
Northern Canada has been keeping a secret from the rest of the world. It’s home to “Resurrection,” a tectonic plate that has been much theorized but never found until now. A team of researchers used what amounts to a CAT scan of northern Canada and the mantle underneath it to find the missing plate.
Finding it could lead to better hazard prediction and also to finding mineral and hydrocarbon deposits. But better than that, it’s helping scientists piece together Earth’s history.
A missing tectonic…
‘Opposite’ of Vantablack? Scientists create WHITEST paint ever, which reflects 95.5% of light & keeps buildings cool – RT
Engineers have created a paint capable of reflecting 95.5 percent of sunlight back into space, while keeping a building cooler than the ambient temperature, which…
In research undertaken at Purdue University, in Indiana, engineers have produced the remarkable acrylic paint. It makes use of passive radiative cooling technology, which keeps surfaces 10 degrees Celsius below the ambient temperature at night and at least 1.7 degrees Celsius below the ambient temperature at noon.
“It’s very counterintuitive for a surface in direct sunlight to be cooler than the temperature your local weather station reports for that area, but we’ve shown this to be possible,” said…
Scientist Create Ultra-White Paint So Reflective It Can Cool Buildings Even In Bright Sunlight – IFLScience
Scientists have created a new ultra-white paint that can reflect 95.5 percent of the sunlight that reaches its surface. This incredible property allows som
Scientists have created a new ultra-white paint that can reflect 95.5 percent of the sunlight that reaches its surface. This incredible property allows something coated in this paint, like a building, to cool below the temperatures of its surroundings even under direct sunlight. An incredible technical achievement that could go towards combatting global warming.
Reporting in the journal Cell Reports Physical Science, the team tested the paint over the course of two days. When the Sun was at its…
