Editor’s Selections: History of Plate Tectonics, Physics Sonification, and Neutrino Wi-Fi

Editor's Selections 10 Comments
By Sarah Kendrew

Sarah Kendrew Sarah Kendrew selects interesting and notable ResearchBlogging.org posts in the physical sciences, chemistry, engineering, computer science, geosciences and mathematics. She blogs about astronomy at One Small Step.

On the Retos Terricolas blog, Daniel gives a nice back story to the history of plate tectonics, magnetic field reversal and seafloor spreading.

On Astronasty, DJ Busby gives some neat examples of sonification in physics, or the representation of physical data in sounds.

Fancy transferring data through an entire planet? You can use neutrinos for that! But at a maximum of 2 bits/second, neutrino beam data transfer is not quite Netflix-ready yet. Greg Fish explains all on weird things.

That’s it for the week all. I’ll be back next week with more selections.

    In a culture wherever a great offer of relevance has been positioned on larger training, it is more crucial than ever to have a specialised degree in kinds selected field or occupation route. If you need to work in the enterprise subject, it is far more critical than ever to have a company administration diploma.

    I write a comment whenever I appreciate a article on a site or if I have something to contribute to the discussion. It’s caused by the sincerness displayed in the article I read. And after this article ResearchBlogging.org News » Blog Archive » Editor’s Selections: History of Plate Tectonics, Physics Sonification, and Neutrino Wi-Fi. I was actually moved enough to drop a leave a responsea response ;-) I do have a couple of questions for you if you tend not to mind. Is it simply me or do a few of these responses look like they are left by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing at other places, I would like to keep up with you. Could you make a list the complete urls of all your community pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
