The reconstructed megadolon (Otodus megalodon) was 16 meters long and weighed over 61 tons. It was estimated that it could swim at around 1.4 meters per second, require over 98,000 kilo calories every day and have stomach volume of almost 10,000 liters.
Article title: A 3D virtual human model for simulating heat and cold stress Authors: Tushar Gulati, Rajeev Hatwar, Ginu Unnikrishnan, Jose E. Rubio, Jaques Reifman From the authors: “Our 3D thermoregulatory virtual human model consistently predicted the body’s thermal state…
Researchers took 3-D printed reconstructions of fossil cephalopods to actual water tanks (including a swimming pool) to see how their shell structure may have been tied to their movement and lifestyle.
Physicists have been studying the question of how supernova explosions occur for more than 60 years. Thanks to the increasing power of supercomputing resources such as those at the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, they’re moving ever closer to an answer.
The National Academy of Inventors (NAI) recently named 61 academic inventors to the 2021 class of senior members. Among them is Professor Lijun Yin from Binghamton University’s Thomas J. Watson College of Engineering and Applied Science.
Geoscientists at The University of Texas at Dallas recently used supercomputers to analyze massive amounts of earthquake data to generate high-resolution, 3D images of the dynamic geological processes taking place far below the Earth’s surface.
