      Weather Modification Technology

      Weather modification refers to willful manipulation of the climate or local weather. Research done in this field goes back to as far as the early 1940s when the US military experimented with cloud seeding to stimulate rain. Today, private corporations have joined the weather modification research effort to protect people, cities and assets from the

    • What is a Plastic Injection Molding Machine?

      What is a Plastic Injection Molding Machine?

      A plastic injection molding machine or injection press is a device that melts plastics and materials made from other polymers, and injects them into a mold. Plastic injection molding machines are most often used to recycle plastic, but are also the primary device responsible for producing plastic objects in the first place. They use a

    • Liquid Armor

      Liquid Armor

      Liquid armor is a new development in the body armor field. It is a material that makes lightweight, flexible and tough body armors possible. Body Armor Body armor is a protective clothing designed to stop bullets or bomb fragments and shrapnel from penetrating the human body. They are descended from leather or metal armor designed

    • What is an Anechoic Chamber?

      What is an Anechoic Chamber?

      An anechoic chamber prevents sound, radio signals, and electromagnetic waves from echoing  in a room. Anechoic chambers often test antennas, measure the direction of sound, or record music. Anechoic chambers are found all over the world, especially in universities, and can be as large as an aircraft or as small as a car. Full-anechoic chambers

    • How Do Neurons Work?

      How Do Neurons Work?

      The neuron is the cell responsible for the transfer of information and electrical impulses around the body. Neurons work by transferring electrical charges from neuron to neuron to get from one point to another. All data, therefore, is transferred in this electrical fashion which is why computer science has become such an important tool in

    • Linear Particle Accelerator

      Linear Particle Accelerator

      A linear particle accelerator is a large device that can speed up electrons, ions, or other particles and slam them into a target in order to release subatomic particles and radiation. Sensors then record these by-products, send their data to a central computer system that creates a digital, 3D image of the particle, and labels

    • How Do Quasars Form?

      How Do Quasars Form?

      Quasars are a phenomena that, to this day, continue to baffle and confuse astronomers. There are different theories. One is that a quasar is formed from a super, massive black hole. Another theory is that a quasar is actually a baby galaxy and is at the earliest stages of development. However, since no one really

    • Total Harmonic Distortion

      Total Harmonic Distortion

      Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) is a measured difference in audio levels between the input audio signal’s harmonics and the harmonics of the output audio signal of an amplifier or other audio device. Output Distortion Level As the signal passes through an amplifier it is always somewhat distorted at its output. The waveform at the input

    • Fingerprint Identification

      Fingerprint Identification

      What is Fingerprint Identification? Fingerprint identification is the process of using fingerprints to identify an individual. This is very effective because each person has completely unique fingerprints that do not change with age. Fingerprint identification is used for a variety of reasons: security, criminal investigations, and even ergonomics. Fingerprint identification often consists of a fingerprint

    • PIR Sensor

      PIR Sensor

      A PIR (Passive Infrared) sensor detects infrared light that is emitted from objects within its field of view. PIR sensors differ from other infrared sensors because they can only receive infrared waves. Because all objects emit infrared waves (electromagnetic waves that travel with heat), PIR sensors can detect objects that are in front of them.
