Editors Corner

I wanted to let everyone know the reason why the "Click here"s in last weeks Editors Corner did not work. That was my fault, I forgot to link them properly. Everything should work properly in this weeks newsletter.

Did you know that most of the life in the deep sea creates it's own light? What's more interesting though is “Given that the deep ocean is the largest habitat on Earth by volume, bioluminescence can certainly be said to be a major ecological trait on Earth”. Click here

Speaking of water and light, are you aware that researchers "have developed a box that can convert low-humidity air into water"? Previously, this kind of "water from air" technology only worked with very moist air. This new system does not need electricity, just sunlight, and "can produce about a glass of water every hour in 20-30% humidity". Click here

And more on the subject of light, have you ever seen the birth of a star? Apparently the European Southern Observatory (ESO) managed to capture the light show generated by such an event. It's "reminiscent of a Fourth of July fireworks display". Click here

That's it from me for this week. Enjoy this newsletter and have a wonderful week.

Box That Creates Water Out Of Thin Air Has Been Invented
The idea that we could create water out of thin air is no longer in the realm of science fiction. Scientists have long tried to come up with a solution how to convert air into water and some companies have already been successful in their attempts. Now, researchers from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have announced they have developed a box that can convert low-humidity air into water, producing several liters every 12 hours. What is special about this new prototype, though, is that it can cultivate water in low-humidity environments using no energy. Technologies exist for extracting water from very moist air, such as “fog harvesting” systems that have been deployed in a number of coastal locations. But the new method is the first that has potential for widespread use in virtually any location, regardless of humidity levels, the researchers say. Scientists have developed a completely passive system that is based on a foam-like material that draws moisture into its pores and is powered entirely by solar heat.

Deep sea survey expands known range of light-creating marine creatures
A new study has discovered that three out of four deep sea dwellers are bioluminescent, meaning they can create their own light. The deep sea is by far the largest habitat on earth and because it’s so difficult to get there, little is known about many of its amazing, alien-like, creatures. The new study, from Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI), was based on 17 years of video observations from remotely controlled vehicles which carried out surveys off the coast of California. The vehicles collected information from the surface all the way down to depths of 3,900 meters (12,795 feet). The researchers compiled data on every single animal found measuring larger than one centimeter. Because of the difficulty in counting glowing animals at depth, most previous estimates of the number of bioluminescent creatures were based on observations made by researchers peering out the windows of submersible boats.

Twinkle, twinkle exploding star: Epic star birth captured in spectacular images

Explosions don’t just mean the end of a life cycle – they can also signal stellar birth. Spectacular images released by the European Southern Observatory (ESO) show the fireworks display that marks the start of a star’s life cycle.

China selects site for its first Antarctic airfield
China has selected a location for its first-ever airfield in Antarctica, which is to facilitate Beijing’s research efforts on the frozen continent. It is also considering establishing its fifth Antarctic base there next year, local media report. The site selected for the future runway is near China’s Zhongshan station on Antarctica’s Prydz Bay, according to the China Daily. Members of China’s 33rd expedition surveyed a three-square-kilometer area and chose a place for the future airfield, the newspaper reported, citing Sun Bo, deputy Director of the State Oceanic Administration’s Polar Research Institute of China. Sun spoke to a news conference in Shanghai on Tuesday after welcoming expedition members returning from their 161-day mission. “At first the airfield, will have only one runway, so the construction will be easy. We will only need to flatten the selected area and maintain it. Fixed-wing aircraft will need to be equipped with a pair of runners so they can land,” he said.

N. Korean missile fails, blows up ‘almost immediately’ after launch – Seoul & US military
North Korea has tried, but allegedly failed, to conduct a new missile launch, according to South Korea’s Joint Chief of Staff and US Pacific Command. The alleged botched launch comes amid heightened tensions on the Korean Peninsula and a day after Pyongyang showcased its new sea based and intercontinental missiles. “The communist state attempted to launch an unidentified missile from the port city of Sinpo on its east coast in the morning and the launch is presumed to have failed,” the South Korean military said, according to Yonhap news. The attempted missile launch has also been detected by the US military, which said it “blew up almost immediately” after the launch at 9:21pm GMT. “US Pacific Command detected and tracked what we assess was a North Korean missile launch at 11:21 a.m. Hawaii time April 15. The launch of the ballistic missile occurred near Sinpo," US Pacific Command spokesman Commander David Benham said. “The missile blew up almost immediately. The type of missile is still being assessed.”
