Feed CUT As Horseshoe UFO Appears On ISS Live Cam! 4/18/16 - YouTube



NASA has been accused of an alien cover up after a live International Space Station feed appearing to show a horseshoe UFO
suddenly went down. Conspiracy theorists are having a field day over
the sighting of the strange U-shaped object hovering on the horizon of

object flew too close to the space station.

Artificial leaf? Successful synthesis of ammonia using visible light, water, and atmospheric nitrogen -- ScienceDaily

ScienceDaily

The research group of Professor Hiroaki Misawa and Assistant Professor Tomoya Oshikiri of the Research Institute for Electronic Science of Hokkaido University, by using a photoelectrode in which gold nanoparticles are loaded on an oxide semiconductor substrate, has worked to develop a method of artificial photosynthesis that has received attention as an ultimate light energy conversion system.

At this time this research group has developed a co-catalyst that can convert di-nitrogen into ammonia with good efficiency, and by supporting this co-catalyst on a photoelectrode in which gold nanoparticles are loaded, they have succeeded in using water, di-nitrogen, and visible light to selectively synthesize ammonia, which has gained attention as a next-generation energy carrier.

10 'ARGH!' moments every computer user experiences

1. Trying to interact with a non-touchscreen monitor


We've all done it. It's easy to get used to working with your phone
or tablet and not transition smoothly to your regular desktop or laptop.
How many of us have jabbed pointless at an icon to try to open a file,
or needlessly swiped a finger across the lock screen to access the
