The story of 'Oumuamua, the first visitor from another star system | Karen J. Meech

The story of 'Oumuamua, the first visitor from another star system | Karen J. Meech

In October 2017, astrobiologist Karen J. Meech got the call every astronomer waits for: NASA had spotted the very first visitor from another star system. The interstellar comet -- a half-mile-long object eventually named `Oumuamua, from the Hawaiian for "scout" or "messenger" -- raised intriguing questions: Was it a chunk of rocky debris from a new star system, shredded material from a supernova explosion, evidence of alien technology or something else altogether? In this riveting talk, Meech tells the story of how her team raced against the clock to find answers about this unexpected gift from afar.

What's hidden under the Greenland ice sheet? | Kristin Poinar

What's hidden under the Greenland ice sheet? | Kristin Poinar

The Greenland ice sheet is massive, mysterious -- and melting. Using advanced technology, scientists are revealing its secrets for the first time, and what they've found is amazing: hidden under the ice sheet is a vast aquifer that holds a Lake Tahoe-sized volume of water from the summer melt. Does this water stay there, or does it find its way out to the ocean and contribute to global sea level rise? Join glaciologist Kristin Poinar for a trip to this frozen, forgotten land to find out.

Underwater Lawnmowers Are Cleaning Trash Out Of Rivers

This Aquatic Weed Harvester can gather weeds and excessive amounts of trash in waterways of all sizes. Cleantec Infra made the machine that functions similarly like an underwater lawnmower. Its conveyer belt lowers into the water and cuts, collects, and stores the trash/weeds until it needs to be discharged.  The Harvester is one of many ways humans are trying to battle the growing threat of sea pollution all around the world.  _________________________________ Tech Insider tells you all you need to know about tech: gadgets, how-to's, gaming, science, digital culture, and more.

The deep ocean is the final frontier on planet Earth

The deep ocean is the final frontier on planet Earth

The ocean covers 70% of our planet. The deep-sea floor is a realm that is largely unexplored, but cutting-edge technology is enabling a new generation of aquanauts to go deeper than ever before. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.trib.al/rWl91R7 Beneath the waves is a mysterious world that takes up to 95% of Earth's living space. Only three people have ever reached the bottom of the deepest part of the ocean. The deep is a world without sunlight, of freezing temperatures, and immense pressure. It's remained largely unexplored until now. Cutting-edge technology is enabling a new generation of aquanauts to explore deeper than ever before. They are opening up a whole new world of potential benefits to humanity. The risks are great, but the rewards could be greater. From a vast wealth of resources to clues about the origins of life, the race is on to the final frontier The Okeanos Explorer, the American government state-of-the-art vessel, designed for every type of deep ocean exploration from discovering new species to investigating shipwrecks. On board, engineers and scientists come together to answer questions about the origins of life and human history. Today the Okeanos is on a mission to investigate the wreck of a World War one submarine. Engineer Bobby Moore is part of a team who has developed the technology for this type of mission. The “deep discover”, a remote operating vehicle is equipped with 20 powerful LED lights and designed to withstand the huge pressure four miles down. Equivalent to 50 jumbo jets stacked on top of a person While the crew of the Okeanos send robots to investigate the deep, some of their fellow scientists prefer a more hands-on approach. Doctor Greg stone is a world leading marine biologist with over 8,000 hours under the sea. He has been exploring the abyss in person for 30 years. The technology opening up the deep is also opening up opportunity. Not just to witness the diversity of life but to glimpse vast amounts of rare mineral resources. Some of the world's most valuable metals can be found deep under the waves. A discovery that has begun to pique the interest of the global mining industry. The boldest of mining companies are heading to the deep drawn by the allure of a new Gold Rush. But to exploit it they're also beating a path to another strange new world. In an industrial estate in the north of England, SMD is one of the world's leading manufacturers of remote underwater equipment. The industrial technology the company has developed has made mining possible several kilometers beneath the ocean surface. With an estimated 150 trillion dollars’ worth of gold alone, deep-sea mining has the potential to transform the global economy. With so much still to discover, mining in the deep ocean could have unknowable impact. It's not just life today that may need protecting; reaching the deep ocean might just allow researchers to answer some truly fundamental questions. Hydrothermal vents, hot springs on the ocean floor, are cracks in the Earth's crust. Some claim they could help scientists glimpse the origins of life itself. We might still be years away from unlocking the mysteries of the deep. Even with the latest technology, this kind of exploration is always challenging. As the crew of the Okeanos comes to terms with a scale of the challenge and the opportunity that lies beneath, what they and others discover could transform humanity's understanding of how to protect the ocean. It's the most hostile environment on earth, but the keys to our future may lie in the deep.

Scientists Are Breeding Super Coral That Can Survive Climate Change | VICE on HBO

They still look beautiful, but coral reefs are dying at staggering rates — experts project that 90 percent of the world's reefs will be gone by 2050. But a growing group of scientists around the world are searching for innovative solutions to make sure that doesn't happen. Coral reefs are among the earth’s most precious natural resources. They harbor a million species and provide food for 500 million people around the world. But warming waters, pollution and overfishing have badly damaged these precious ecosystems; roughly 50 percent of the world’s corals have been lost in just the last 30 years. “The rates of change in our environment are far outpacing the intrinsic capacity of coral reefs to survive.” said Dr. Ruth Gates, the Director of the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology, where she is pioneering research that could help corals survive. “If we don’t mitigate at all, coral reefs will not be the things we’re worrying about, it will be the survival of our species.” Dr. Gates is just one of the scientists devising innovative ways to take coral reef restoration into their own hands. Her lab has started to breed and distribute, "super coral" — the strongest breeds of coral that can thrive in warmer environments. And in Curaçao, a small coral rich island in the Caribbean Sea, a team of scientists are finalizing a technology that could distribute fertilized coral eggs across the ocean, repopulating reefs worldwide. VICE's Ben Anderson visited with scientists who are working around the clock to solve one of the most significant environmental problems of our time.

Los hay poéticos -el séptimo continente- y descriptivos -isla de plástico-, pero también los que se dejan de eufemismos para llamar a las cosas por su nombre -isla tóxica o isla de basura-. El hombre que documentó por primera vez este terrible desastre medioambiental fue más gráfico: lo calificó como un “gran remolino de alcantarilla”. Charles J. Moore se quedó perplejo cuando en 1997, regresando de competir en una regata, su barco se vio rodeado por inmensas cantidades de porquería en mitad del mar: “mirando desde la cubierta del barco hacia lo que debería haber sido un océano prístino, el paisaje frente a mis ojos era una enorme extensión de plásticos. Había botellas, botes de champú, tapones, bolsas... Parecía increíble, pero era imposible encontrar un lugar despejado. Durante la semana que tardamos en cruzar la cresta subtropical, no importa a que hora de día te asomaras a cubierta, siempre te encontrabas con deshechos plásticos”. Los científicos no se ponen de acuerdo acerca de las dimensiones de esta concentración de plástico (que proviene en un 80% de las costas estadounidenses y asiáticas), pero hay estimaciones que van desde los 700.000 hasta los 15 millones de metros cuadrados. La diferencia entre unos y otros cálculos está justificada porque, a pesar del dantesco paisaje descrito por Moore, gran parte del material que hay en la zona está formado por pequeñas partículas de plástico difíciles de detectar a simple vista. Desde que descubriera la gran mancha del Pacífico (existen otras similares en el Atlántico y el Índico) Moore ha dedicado su vida a luchar contra ella. Afortunadamente, no está solo; hay investigadores que traen nuevas y revolucionarias propuestas que pueden terminar con este desastre. Uno de ellos es Boyan Slat, un joven holandés que, con tan solo 21 años, ha ideado un sistema con el que promete limpiar toda esta basura en un tiempo récord. La compañía que él mismo ha creado se llama The Ocean Cleanup y su proyecto consiste en instalar barreras flotantes en el océano que, aprovechando las corrientes marinas -las que causan la concentración de plástico-, atraerán los deshechos para poder recogerlos y reciclarlos sin dañar la fauna de la zona. Aunque, debido principalmente a su juventud, Slat ha tenido que enfrentarse a quienes tachaban su idea de estrafalaria y poco efectiva, las voces en contra se han visto silenciadas por la efectividad de las pruebas realizadas hasta la fecha. Desde The Ocean Cleanup aseguran que una sola barrera de 100 kilómetros de longitud podría recoger el 42% de la basura plástica del Pacífico Norte en 10 años (unos 70 millones de kilogramos) a un coste de 4,53 euros por kilo. Mucho más barato y en mucho menos tiempo -se ha calculado que nos llevaría siglos intentarlo con los métodos tradicionales- que todo lo que se ha probado hasta ahora. El proyecto ya está en fase de pruebas y Boyan Slat confía en que su idea esté funcionando a pleno rendimiento hacia el año 2020. La degradación medioambiental es un problema ineludible y la actitud del investigador holandés es, sin duda, la única correcta para encarar la solución a este tipo de desastres: “la cuestión no es si podemos hacerlo, la pregunta es cómo podemos hacerlo de la forma más rentable posible”.

How the oceans can clean themselves: Boyan Slat at TEDxDelft

How the oceans can clean themselves: Boyan Slat at TEDxDelft

18-year-old Boyan Slat combines environmentalism, entrepreneurism and technology to tackle global issues of sustainability. After diving in Greece, and coming across more plastic bags than fish, he wondered; "why can't we clean this up?" While still being on secondary school, he then decided to dedicate half a year of research to understand plastic pollution and the problems associated with cleaning it up. This ultimately led to his passive clean-up concept, which he presented at TEDxDelft 2012. Working to prove the feasibility of his concept, Boyan Slat currently gives lead to a team of approximately 50 people, and temporarily quit his Aerospace Engineering study to completely focus his efforts on The Ocean Cleanup. The progress of The Ocean Cleanup can be followed through www.theoceancleanup.com, www.facebook.com/TheOceanCleanup, as well as www.twitter.com/TheOceanCleanup. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Secrets of the Stone Age (1/2) | DW Documentary

Secrets of the Stone Age (1/2) | DW Documentary

During the Stone Age, humans shifted from the nomadic lifestyle to the more settled life of farmers. A documentary on an important period of human history. Watch Part 2 here: https://youtu.be/XSGRd5Ve1zI Around 12,000 years ago, humans underwent a transition from nomads to settlers. That epoch, the Stone Age, produced monumental building works. Part 1 of this two-part documentary illuminates the cultural background of these structures and shows the difficulties Stone Age humans had to contend with. Until around 10,000 BC, humans lived as hunters and gatherers. Then an irreversible change began. Settlements formed. "For millions of years humans lived as foragers and suddenly their lives changed radically. This was far more radical than the start of the digital age or industrialization," says prehistorian Hermann Parzinger, president of the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation. For a long time, scholars believed that a sedentary lifestyle was a prerequisite for constructing large buildings. Then archaeologist Klaus Schmidt discovered Göbekli Tepe in southern Turkey, a 12,000-year-old complex of stone blocks weighing up to 20 tons. Its builders were still hunter- gatherers. They decorated the stone columns with ornate animal reliefs. How these structures were used and who was allowed access to them remains a mystery. But we now know that the site was abandoned and covered over once settlements took root. Human development continued its course. The discovery of agriculture and animal husbandry led to larger settlements, a changed diet and ultimately to dependence on material goods. This social upheaval in the late Neolithic period has influenced our lives up to the present day. But experts agree that the monuments of the Stone Age prove that humans have gigantomanic tendencies and a need to immortalize themselves. _______ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

How Earth Would Look If All The Ice Melted

How Earth Would Look If All The Ice Melted

We learned last year that many of the effects of climate change are irreversible. Sea levels have been rising at a greater rate year after year, and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change estimates they could rise by another meter or more by the end of this century. As National Geographic showed us in 2013, sea levels would rise by 216 feet if all the land ice on the planet were to melt. This would dramatically reshape the continents and drown many of the world's major cities.

Great Pacific Garbage Patch cleanup has begun | Engadget Today

Great Pacific Garbage Patch cleanup has begun | Engadget Today

An ambitious project to clean up the 88,000 tons of plastic floating in the "Great Pacific Garbage Patch" has begun. On Sunday, the Ocean Cleanup Project started towing its "Ocean Cleanup System 001" from San Francisco to a trial site some 240 nautical miles (260 miles) away. Once it arrives, the wind and waves will push System 001 into a U-shape and it will slowly drift along on its own. A 10-foot long skirt hanging below will collect pieces of plastic as small as a millimeter in size, and smaller boats will later scoop them up and take them to shore for recycling.
