Abstract
NASA's Mars rover Curiosity has found clear evidence of water on the Red Planet, scientists report ! Images taken by Curiosity show rounded stones cemented into the rock. Planetary scientist Rebecca Williams says these stones are too big to have been moved by wind. The $2.5 billion Mars Curiosity mission is NASA's first astrobiology mission since the 1970s.

Title          
Improving the safety of air transportation 
   
 
Abstract

Dr. Kara Peters of NC State University's College of Engineering is researching how to improve the testing of composite materials used in aircrafts. This includes real time monitoring devices that could significantly improve aircraft safety as well as make aircraft maintenance more easy. While metallic frames are easy to inspect for damages, composites offer some challenges to being inspected for damages. Two of Kara Peter's papers are listed here for quick reference :

 

Efficient simulation of Bragg grating sensors for implementation to damage identification in composites

Method for determination of crack bridging parameters using long optical fiber Bragg grating sensors

Title          
Banked blood doesn't deliver oxygen 
   
 
Abstract

Main Article from Howard Hughes Medical Institute

Blood flow in the microcirculation is regulated by physiological O2 gradients that are coupled to vasodilation and vasoconstriction, but the mechanism underlying this fundamental vascular response (which controls O2 delivery to tissues) has remained a major unanswered question in vascular physiology. The discovery of a previously unknown S-nitrosothiol (SNO) derivative of hemoglobin that has potent vasodilatory activity has changed the picture. Most significantly, the affinity of cysteine β93 for NO is high in the R (or oxy) structure and low in the T (or deoxy) structure. Thus, deoxygenatio...

Abstract

Where could God be? Why cant we see Him? Can modern technology detect God?String Theory holds the answer!

String theory is a still-developing mathematical approach to theoretical physics, whose original building blocks are one-dimensional extended objects called strings. Unlike the point particles in quantum field theories like the standard model of particle physics, strings interact in a way that is almost uniquely specified by mathematical self-consistency, forming an apparently valid quantum theory of gravity.

The Elegant Universe - Einstein's Relativity 
   
 
Abstract

Einstein's General Theory of Relativity explained.

Special relativity (SR) (also known as the special theory of relativity (STR)) is the physical theory of measurement in inertial frames of reference proposed in 1905 by Albert Einstein (after considerable contributions of Hendrik Lorentz and Henri Poincaré) in the paper "On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies".[1]...

(more) Added: November 15, 2007 Video of a Nov. 12-13 conference hosted by the Meharry-Vanderbilt Alliance. The purpose of the conference was to assemble experts with different perspectives in an effort to better understand disparities in diabetes, and to guide future research, policy and public health practices in terms of prevention and management of diabetes, with a focus on special populations. The audience included professionals from the areas of diabetes prevention, healthcare delivery, translational research, community practice and public policy. This included caregivers (physicians, nurses, public and community health staff), epidemiologists, social scientists, behaviorists, psychologists, diabetes educators, health administrators and policy makers at the city, state and national level. Students are also encouraged to attend in order to more fully understand current progress and remaining barriers towards adequate prevention and management of diabetes disparities.

Title          
CO2 emissions and climate change 
   
 
Abstract
Global warming is the increase in the average temperature of the Earth's near-surface air and oceans in recent decades and its projected continuation. The global average air temperature near the Earth's surface rose 0.74 ± 0.18 °C (1.33 ± 0.32 °F) during the 100 year period ending in 2005.[1] The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) concludes "most of the observed increase in globally averaged temperatures since the mid-20th century is very likely due to the observed increase in anthropogenic greenhouse gas concentrations"[1] via the greenhouse effect. Natural phenomena such as solar variation combined with volcanoes probably had a small warming effect from pre-industrial times to 1950 and a small cooling effect from 1950 onward.[2][3] These basic conclusions have been endorsed by at least 30 scientific societies and academies of science,[4] including all of the national academies of science of the major industrialized countries.[5][6][7] While individual scientists have voiced disagreement with the conclusions of the IPCC[8], the overwhelming majority of scientists working on climate change are in agreement with the conclusions.
