- Method for Mass Production of Molecular Diodes May Be Close (ePrairie.com -Fendelman)
Two scientists, Ng and Yu, have developed a molecular diode, which "restricts current flow to one direction between electronic devices. In the semiconductor industry, these components (called p-n junctions) form half a transistor." They say that they can now "mass produce molecular diodes with relative ease. While Yu is confident he can now synthesize a molecular transistor, a more difficult hurdle remains."
"He must now discover how to connect molecular components to make a working computer. Yu added: "If you can solve that issue, that's the ultimate computer you can have as far as component size is concerned." 10-02
- What Happens When the Sea Rises? (NationalGeographic.com)
"In 1985 one captain brought Mol a beautifully preserved human jawbone, complete with worn molars. With his friend, fellow amateur Jan Glimmerveen, Mol had the bone radiocarbon-dated. It turned out to be 9,500 years old, meaning the individual lived during the Mesolithic period, which in northern Europe began at the end of the last ice age some 12,000 years ago and lasted until the advent of farming 6,000 years later. 'We think it comes from a burial,' says Glimmerveen. 'One that has lain undisturbed since that world vanished beneath the waves, about 8,000 years ago.' "
"The story of that vanished land begins with the waning of the ice. Eighteen thousand years ago, the seas around northern Europe were some 400 feet lower than today. Britain was not an island but the uninhabited northwest corner of Europe, and between it and the rest of the continent stretched frozen tundra. As the world warmed and the ice receded, deer, aurochs, and wild boar headed northward and westward. The hunters followed. Coming off the uplands of what is now continental Europe, they found themselves in a vast, low-lying plain."
"Archaeologists call that vanished plain Doggerland, after the North Sea sandbank and occasional shipping hazard Dogger Bank." 12-12
