travelling over the area could sink or catch fire. "So ancient, deep-sediment bacteria may be a key to sustainable energy in the future and to explaining a few disasters," said Professor Parkes. ...
Scientist uses dragonflies to better understand flight
...birds and planes, which is better? And if we think planes
are better -- why?" Conventional wisdom holds that airplanes (airfoils) are more efficient because they travel from point to point with no wasted up-and-down motion. "But there are infinitely many ways you can go up and down," said Wang. "Of all the...
K-Staters design and build a low-cost remote sensing tool for environmental studies
...s images and data, he said. "Small remote-control planes
can be put to work in a variety of environmental settings," Ham said. "We want them to be comparatively cheap to build and operate. They'll provide a data-collection tool that offers tremendous flexibility to users. We're really developing a new tool...
Novel computed imaging technique uses blurry images to enhance view
... planes, Ralston said. "Although most of the image planes
are blurry, ISAM descrambles the light to produce a fully focused, three-dimensional image." ISAM effectively extends the region of the image that is in focus, using information that was discarded in the past. "We have demonstrated that the disca...
Small, self-controlled planes combine plant pathology and engineering
...s.” Schmale has used the small, self-controlled planes
to collect samples of the fungal genus Fusarium tens to hundreds of meters above the surface of the earth. This genus contains some of the world’s most devastating plant and animal pathogens and remains largely a mystery to scientists who do not have...
