Focus Description:

Lay the phonograph record on the edge of the table and press the bottle down on top. Place an empty glass on the other end of the record. As long as the whole structure is in balance, nothing surprising happens.

Now take the bottle off the table. The glass continues to stand on the record and does not fall. Moreover, it will not fall even when you pour a drink into it. Return the bottle to its original place. Remove the glass from the record, taste its contents. Finishing the trick, remove the bottle from the table. A gramophone record not glued to the table will fall from the table to the floor.

Focus secret:

The secret of the trick is hidden in a wide-headed nail, which is driven in a few centimeters from the edge of the table. As you might guess, the gramophone record is simply slipped under the head of the nail at the beginning of the trick. It is she who keeps the record from falling along with a glass filled with a drink.

Focus Phonograph record against gravity

In conclusion, when removing the bottle, slightly push the record away from the nail with it - and it will fall off the table.

The speech of sperm whales is similar to that of humans 18.05.2024

In the world of the ocean, where the mysterious and unknown coexists with the studied, sperm whales, with their huge brains, are of particular interest to science. Researchers, working with a huge array of audio recordings collected during the Dominica Sperm Whale Project (DSWP) - more than 8000 recordings, seek to unravel the secrets of their communication and understand the structure and complexity of the language of these mysterious creatures. By studying in detail the recordings of 60 sperm whales in the eastern Caribbean, scientists have revealed surprising features of their communication, revealing the complexity of their language. "Our observations indicate that these whales have a highly developed combinatorial communication system, including rubato and ornaments, which indicates their ability to quickly adapt and vary during communication. Despite significant differences in evolution, sperm whales have elements in their communication that are characteristic of human communication," says Shane Gero, a biologist at Carleton University and director of the CETI project.

Electron spin for quantum information transfer 18.05.2024

The transfer of quantum information remains one of the key tasks of modern science. Recent advances in the use of electron spin to expand the capabilities of information transfer in quantum systems have become very important. Researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory are pushing the frontiers of quantum information science by experimenting with the possibilities of electron spin. Electron spin, a natural quantum bit, is a potentially powerful means for storing and transmitting information in quantum systems. Magnon wave packets, collective excitations of electron spin, have revealed their potential to transmit quantum information over significant distances. The work of Berkeley Lab researchers has revolutionized the way such excitations propagate in antiferromagnets, opening up new prospects for quantum technologies. Using pairs of laser pulses, scientists disrupted antiferromagnetic order in one place and simultaneously studied it in another, creating ... >>

Sound-absorbing silk 17.05.2024

In a world where noise is becoming increasingly intrusive, the emergence of innovative materials that can reduce its impact is of great interest. MIT researchers have unveiled a new sound-absorbing silk fabric that promises to revolutionize quiet spaces. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has made significant breakthroughs in the field of sound absorption. Researchers have developed a special silk fabric that can effectively absorb sound and create cozy, quiet environments. The fabric, thinner than a human hair, contains a unique vibrating fiber that is activated when voltage is applied to it. This feature allows the fabric to be used to suppress sound waves in two different ways. The first method uses fabric vibrations to generate sound waves that cover and cancel out unwanted noise, similar to noise-canceling headphones. This p ... >>

Dolphins control their heartbeat 01.12.2020

Scientists from the Spanish Oceanography Foundation have announced that dolphins are able to control their heartbeat. Before diving, they can slow it down, and they do it "consciously", depending on how long the dive is planned.

During the study, scientists conducted experiments with three captive bottlenose dolphins. They were taught in advance to hold their breath: at the command of a person, they stopped breathing for a short, long, or arbitrary time. The researchers monitored their breathing and heartbeat.

Just before the dolphins stopped breathing, or along with the stop, their heartbeat slowed down. The deceleration was faster and stronger when the animals were preparing for a long air hold.

"Dolphins can vary their heart rate in the same way that you and I can control our breathing. This both allows us to retain oxygen longer and reduces many of the risks associated with diving, such as developing decompression," said Andreas Fahlman, leader of the research team.

In recent years, decompression and similar problems have been found in free-ranging dolphins at an alarming rate. They are associated with human economic activity, which fills the oceans with "acoustic debris". Perhaps this eternal and loud (for them) noise disrupts precisely the ability of dolphins to "plan" their dives and slow down their heart rate in advance.
