Search results for radiation

Mold spores commonly found aboard the International Space Station (ISS) turn out to be radiation resistant enough to survive 200 times the X-ray dose needed to kill a human being. Based on experiments by a team of researchers led by Marta Cortesão, a microbiologist at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Cologne, the new study indicates that sterilizing interplanetary spacecraft may be muc
in collaboration with ludwig & dominique, noir vif has pressed patterns of copper onto walnut to create a protective shield for young children. The post the ‘argo crib’ uses weaves of copper to protect infants from electromagnetic radiation appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
X-rays are one of the most commonly used medical imaging tools. And while no-one is likely to reach the 10,000 X-ray lifetime limit (100 mSv) recommended by the American College of Radiology, no-one is going to argue against technology that can lower the radiation dose of X-ray imaging. And that's just what a team of researchers has developed, in the form of novel nanocrystals that allow t
The radiation dose of an x-ray scan is fine for patients getting them every now and then, but health risks stack up for radiologists who are exposed to it all day, every day. Layers of protective gear help, but now researchers at Purdue University have developed a living device for these workers, using yeast colonies in wearable patches to monitor how much radiation a person is being expos is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
