Editor’s selections: From the Kuiper Belt to the nanoscale

Editor's Selections 11 Comments
By Dr. SkySkull

skyskullHi everyone; Dr. SkySkull here, of skullsinthestars, your new “editor-at-large” for a collection of the “less traveled” topics here at ResearchBlogging.org.  I’ll be here every Monday highlighting some of the posts which have caught my eye over the past week.

For our first week, we look at posts that take us from the edge of the Solar System to the ecology of the Earth right down to the atomic scale:

  • Haumea and Friends: Most people are familiar with the “demotion” of Pluto from a planet status, in large part due to the vast number of comparable objects out in that distant part of the Solar System.  The Angry Astronomer describes a recent hypothesis concerning one of these objects, Haumea, and the origins of its own satellites.
  • We must stamp our ecological feet:  Returning to Earth and its own delicate ecosystem, David Bradley of Sciencebase looks at research relating to corporate efforts at becoming “green”: are they walking the walk, or just talking the talk?
  • Seeing is Believing: Zooming in to the nanoscale, to the size of atoms and molecules, Tom Paine’s Ghost describes a recent advance in imaging science.  Using tiny arrays of self-assembled lenses, researchers are beginning to be able to peer at molecular interactions with regular light, something that was thought to be impossible to due resolution limitations only a few decades ago.

That’s it for this week; check back every day of the week for selections from the other editors, and check back next Monday for more editor-at-large picks!

    I’m keen on what you’re really announcing even if I would not definitely have an understanding of everything that you actually explained. It isn’t exactly the same we have found Asia. Asians perhaps find it somewhat in different ways. That i prefer to hunt for a great Asian female viewpoint.

    A cat gym is a piece of cat furniture that is similar to
    a cat tree, only is has more for a cat to play with. Sometimes they climb a tree to get
    away from a chasing dog, or other thing they perceive to be a danger.
    This is almost feline abuse in the eyes of your precious princess or your precious
    prince.

    Doors, windows, and cabinetry have become specializations in themselves and have become distinct trades.
    So if still don’t know what to do yet, consider
    a carpentry career. The selection of traditional mouldings run
    the gamut from elaborate to simple, to suit every d.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter
    a blog that’s both educative and engaging, and let me tell
    you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which not enough people are
    speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy I stumbled across this in my hunt for something
    concerning this.
