California Trip

I’m hitting San Francisco today and stay there couple of days before heading to the Emerald Triangle for maybe 2 months. Then i might go down to L.A. for new year´s eve.

Speak up if you’re around !

The beauty of a living thing is not the atoms that go into it, but the way those atoms are put together.

Man Creates The First Ever Leaf That Turns Light and Water Into Oxygen

"If humanity hopes to realize its dreams of exploring the stars, we’re going to need to find ways to recreate life on Earth aboard a spaceship. Simply stockpiling enough vital supplies isn’t going to cut it, which is what led Julian Melchiorri, a student at the Royal College of Art, to create an artificial biological leaf that produces oxygen just like the ones on our home planet do."

YES. Let’s get off this planet, shall we?

These Bacteria Are Wired to Hunt Like a Tiny Wolf Pack
There is an elaborate stealth communication network in the Earth beneath your feet. This smart web acts like a superorganism, fortifying defensive capabilities and coordinating deadly attacks on unsuspecting targets. But it’s not run by the NSA, the CIA, or the military. This web is made of bacteria.
A team of scientists led by Manfred Auer at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have used cutting-edge 3-D microscopy to identify a new mechanism for bacterial networking. They observed elaborate webs of a common soil bacterium, Myxococcus xanthus, connected by thread-like membranes. This system of cellular pipelines suggests that some bacteria have evolved complex ways to deliver molecular cargo out of sight from snooping neighbors. Their work appears in the journal Environmental Microbiology.

Hey look, it’s an article I wrote for WIRED last year popping up on my own dashboard! Circle of life, man.

Of the many fascinating phenomena associated with the Sun, solar prominences rate amongst the most spectacular of the observed features. These relatively cool and dense ribbons of plasma are anchored to the Sun’s surface in the photosphere and extend outwards into the Sun’s corona. From their structures and pattern of motion of material, several different types of prominences can be identified: a quiescent prominence may evolve into an active or eruptive prominence and merge into space with violent velocities. This particular prominence rose high into the corona for about 3 hours on December 31, 2012.
