2Physics Quote:
"Many of the molecules found by ROSINA DFMS in the coma of comet 67P are compatible with the idea that comets delivered key molecules for prebiotic chemistry throughout the solar system and in particular to the early Earth increasing drastically the concentration of life-related chemicals by impact on a closed water body. The fact that glycine was most probably formed on dust grains in the presolar stage also makes these molecules somehow universal, which means that what happened in the solar system could probably happen elsewhere in the Universe."

Nuclear Fusion

Today we have 3 short postings on recent happenings in Fusion research.
Nuclear fusion is the power that drives our sun and thus our life.
Supporters of nuclear fusion argue that it has the potential to be a safe and
sustainable source of energy that does not produce any greenhouse-gas
emissions or long-lived nuclear waste. A fusion reactor would need just
100 grams of deuterium and 3 tons of natural lithium to produce a power
output of 1 GigaWatt, which is equivalent to a large power station
[lithium is needed to generate tritium].
So, follow our 3 postings below:
