Liquid water on Mars may hold enough oxygen to support life: Study

The findings could inform future missions to Mars by providing better targets to rovers searching for signs of past or present habitable environments, researchers said. A team led by scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in the US has calculated that if liquid ... Read More »

Water Problem is Ruining Children’s Future

Dream of every child is to study and become someone who is educated, dignified, carries respect in society and is self-sufficient. It is fundamentally right also. But even before the journey begins, like a dream, it already ends like a dream for millions of children living in rural villages. As ... Read More »

Every Indian Wastes Up to 45 litres of Water Per Day

How many of us who drink water from sealed bottles (pet bottle) carry with them if the water is still remaining ? And how many of us throw that water in the nearby plant as we feel this water will become non-drinkable for the next day? Water is not perishable ... Read More »

Manthan – Rain Water Harvesting, Do The Roman Way

The capturing and storing of rainwater goes back thousands of years to when we first started to farm the land and needed to find new ways of irrigating crops. In hotter climates, catching that intermittent rainfall often meant the difference between life and death for communities. Even civilisations in the ... Read More »

Renewable energy sources: All-in-one light-driven water splitting

Solar-powered water splitting is a promising means of generating clean and storable energy. A novel catalyst based on semiconductor nanoparticles has now been shown to facilitate all the reactions needed for ‘artificial photosynthesis’. In the light of global climate change, there is an urgent need to develop efficient ways of ... Read More »

Engineered sand zaps storm water pollutants

University of California, Berkeley, engineers have created a new way to remove contaminants from storm water, potentially addressing the needs of water-stressed communities that are searching for ways to tap the abundant and yet underused source of fresh drinking water. Using a mineral-coated sand that reacts with and destroys organic ... Read More »

Jupiter’s Great Red Spot reveals signs of water: NASA

The pressure of the water combined with their measurements of another oxygen-bearing gas, carbon monoxide, imply that Jupiter has two to nine times more oxygen than the Sun, researchers said. The findings, published in the Astronomical Journal, support theoretical and computer-simulation models that have predicted abundant water on Jupiter. The ... Read More »

Nanotubes change the shape of water

First, according to Rice University engineers, get a nanotube hole. Then insert water. If the nanotube is just the right width, the water molecules will align into a square rod. Rice materials scientist Rouzbeh Shahsavari and his team used molecular models to demonstrate their theory that weak van der Waals ... Read More »

The behavior of water: Scientists find new properties of H2O

A team of scientists has uncovered new molecular properties of water — a discovery of a phenomenon that had previously gone unnoticed. Liquid water is known to be an excellent transporter of its own autoionization products; that is, the charged species obtained when a water molecule (H2O) is split into ... Read More »
