In a recent test, the guided-missile destroyer USS Stout flashed a message in fast light bursts across 250 ft (76 m) of water to the guided-missile cruiser USS Monterey tied up at a pier at Naval Station Norfolk, Virginia.

Regardless of how loud their sirens are, accurately locating approaching emergency vehicles while behind the wheel can be difficult.

This time it’s the latter as Cicala is talking again about UV filters and this time he and his team have done extensive testing of a wide array of UV filters, testing their ligh
In 2008, researchers analyzed samples of protein found preserved for 68 million years inside a T-rex leg bone, and came to the conclusion that the dinosaurs were closely related to modern chickens and ostriches. Now, palaeontologists from the University of Manchester have taken another look at the tissue, and found that it's an even closer match to ostriches than previously thought – because
With so much focus on the dangers of landmines that linger long after a conflict has ended, it's easy to forget the main reason these devices are laid in the first place – to slow the advance of an opposing force during a conflict.
