Focus Description:

There is a glass with a saucer on the table on the stage. The magician takes the saucer and covers the glass. Stepping back a few steps, he lights a cigarette and announces to the audience that he can fill a glass with smoke from a distance. After taking two or three puffs, he blows a few puffs of smoke towards the table, and smoke appears in the glass.

Focus secret:

While manipulating the glass and saucer, you need to imperceptibly from the audience put two or three drops of hydrochloric acid into the glass, and moisten the bottom of the saucer with ammonia. When you cover the glass with a saucer, a chemical reaction begins, accompanied by the release of white fumes, similar to tobacco smoke.

Before demonstrating the trick, you need to practice and determine the reaction time in order to smoke by the time it starts.

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 ... >>

Phosphate fertilizers will last only 10 years 18.09.2019

Since all plants need phosphate fertilizers, their supply is necessary. In turn, their shortage will create a tense situation around the world and become a serious problem for importing countries. For example, Europe, India and Australia are completely dependent on phosphate imports.

According to the latest estimates of growing demand and shrinking supply, scientists predict that the moment of complete depletion of the resource will come in less than ten years.

Martin Blackwell, an agricultural expert at Rothamsted Research, said that if current levels of phosphate fertilizer use are not reduced soon, the US, China and India will run out of their stocks before the next generation.

To increase yields, farmers add large amounts of phosphate fertilizers. However, the absorption capacity of plants is very low. Consequently, most of the fertilizer remains as a residue in water bodies.

Possible solutions to the problem could be recycling phosphate from wastewater or creating new crops that can use this soil mineral more efficiently.
