A team of researchers from the Space Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS), the Institute for Water and Environmental Problems of the Siberian Branch of RAS, and the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) has proposed a way to determine soil freezing depth based on satellite microwave radiometry. The findings were published in Studying the Earth From Space*, a Russian-language journal of RAS.
It nearly baffled researchers to see amino acids that make up life today link up under lab conditions that mimicked those of pre-life Earth. The result was predecessors to today’s proteins. The researchers made it hard on the amino acids by adding non-biological competitors, but nature selected the life chemicals.
Northern Arizona University professors Robert Kellar, Nate Nieto and Andy Koppisch patented this technology, which incorporates antimicrobial materials into skin wound-healing scaffolds. These properties should reduce the risk of infection during the process of wound closure.
