The Last Sorcerers: The Path from Alchemy to the Periodic Table

THEY began WITH 4: earth, air, hearth, and water. From those fundamentals, they sought to appreciate the fundamental constituents of the realm. those that may possibly see extra, those that understood that the 4 have been just the start, have been the final sorcerers -- and the world's first chemists.
What we now name chemistry all started within the fiery cauldrons of mystics and sorcerers looking to not make a greater international via technological know-how, yet fairly to make themselves richer via magic formulation and con video games. but between those early magicians, frauds, and con artists have been a number of far-seeing "alchemists" who used the trial and blunder of rigorous experimentation to remodel mysticism into technological know-how.
Scientific historians typically credits the good 18th century French chemist Antoine Lavoisier with modernizing the sector of chemistry. Others could persist with his lead, conscientiously studying, measuring, and recording their findings. 100 years later, one other pioneer emerged. Dimitri Mendeleev, an eccentric genius who reduce his flowing hair and beard yet annually, ultimately introduced order to the chemical sciences while he built the 1st Periodic desk within the past due 1800s.
But among and after Lavoisier and Mendeleev have been a bunch of alternative colourful, tremendous scientists who made their mark at the box of chemistry. Depicting the vigorous careers of those scientists and their contributions whereas rigorously deconstructing the heritage and the technology, writer Richard Morris skillfully brings all of it to lifestyles. Hailed via Kirkus reports as a "clear and vigorous author with a penchant for down-to-earth examples" Morris's present for clarification -- and natural leisure -- is amply noticeable. Taking a cue from the nice chemists themselves, Morris has brewed up a powerful mix of the alluringly vague and the traditionally momentous, spiked with simply the precise dose of quirky and ribald element to carry a mystical brew of heritage, technology, and personalities.

The ghosts of evolution : nonsensical fruit, missing partners, and other ecological anachronisms

A brand new imaginative and prescient is sweeping via ecological technological know-how: The dense internet of dependencies that makes up an surroundings has received an further dimension-the measurement of time. each box, woodland, and park is filled with residing organisms tailored for relationships with creatures which are now extinct. In a bright narrative, Connie Barlow indicates how the assumption of "missing companions" in nature developed from remoted, curious examples into an idea that's remodeling how ecologists comprehend the complete wildlife of the Americas.

Symmetries in Science

Southern Illinois college at Carbondale undertook to honor Albert Einstein as scientist and as humanitarian in commemo­ ration of his lOOth birthday in the course of an "Albert Einstein Centennial Week", February 23 - March 2, 1979. throughout the process this week Symposia have been held, entitled "Symmetries in technological know-how" and "Einstein: Humanities Conscience", as well as cultural and social actions honoring Einstein.

The Earth has a comfortable average surface temperature between the boiling and freezing points of water, and distance from the Sun is only part of the reason why this is so. The rest is due to the composition of the Earth’s atmosphere. When Earth is compared to its solar system neighbors, Venus has a thick atmosphere of CO2, making it much too hot to support life—its surface temperature is about 860°F (441°C). Mars, on the other side of the spectrum, has much too thin a layer of CO2 and is too cold to support life—it averages -81°F (-63°C).

According to S. ” This project also is allowing the development of a cutting-edge monitoring and tracking technique leading to a better understanding of CO2 movement in the new CO2 storage reservoir. About the Frio Brine Pilot, Judd Swift says, “Its purpose is to ensure safe storage in a saline reservoir. S. project for CO2 injection. ” Frio Brine researchers drilled a well in 2004 and injected 1,904 tons (1,727 metric tons) of CO2 4,921 feet (1,500 m) underground at the South Liberty oil field near Dayton, Texas.

According to Julio Friedmann, “The Frio formation is an enormous aquifer on the Texas gulf coast. ” Large-scale injection of CO2 for the sole purpose of removing it from the atmosphere is thus far only taking place in Norway, at the off- 39 40 CLIMATE SYSTEMS shore Sleipner facility, which is run by Statoil, the oil company owned and run by Norway. Statoil strips excess CO2 from gas and injects it into an aquifer 2,625 feet (800 m) below the seabed. Operational since 1996, they have injected at least 1 million tons of CO2 a year at a low cost.
