First supermoon of 2020: when and how to see the 'Snow Moon' of February

Few astronomical phenomena cause as much excitement as those known lately as supermoons.

⬛ The first supermoon of the year will shine in the sky this weekend, especially Sunday, February 9

⬛ The term, actually coined in 1979 by astrologer Richard Nolle, describes that moment when the satellite, in full moon phase, passes through the perigee, which is the point in its orbit (elliptical shape) closest to the Earth.

⬛ Theoretically, during a supermoon, in the more formal language of science, the diameter of the Moon can increase by up to 14% and its brightness by approximately 30%. 

And although these changes are difficult to perceive with the naked eye from our homes, the truth is that during the three to five super moons of the year, the most people will look around to see if the superlative fits the reality.

The first supermoon of the year, which this weekend in February will be at its peak, is also known as the 'Snow Moon', although the reference to the time of year is currently a…

The largest printed 3D building in the world opens in Dubai | 3D printing technology

3D printing technology - also known as additive manufacturing - invented in the 1980s by Chuck Hall, an engineer and physicist, is a process in which an object is produced by applying a layer of material.

Dubai has opened the world's largest 3D printed building, a two-story government building with 6,900 square meters of floor space, as part of a plan to build 25% of the new building with 3D printers by 2030.

Dubai City Council has completed the world's largest 3D printed building. ⬛ It was built using a crane-mounted 3D printer with a special plaster composition.
⬛ The building was designed by the Boston-based technology company Apis Cor.

Third British coronavirus patient was diagnosed today in Brighton | Coronavirus 2020.

Third British patient diagnosed with Coronavirus almost a week after his mother and son passed a positive test in York.

The third British coronavirus patient is believed to be a Briton who has been infected with the virus outside China.

The public health service in England said the patient had not visited the mainland (China), but had instead caught this highly contagious virus "in other Asian countries" before returning to the UK sometime last week.

Paramedics in protective suits are picking up a third Coronavirus victim in York.
On Sunday evening, after experiencing flu-like symptoms, he went to the emergency room of Royal Sussex in Brighton, where they were tested and monitored for fatal diseases.

When positive results arrived this morning, they were quarantined for at least two weeks in a specialist infectious disease unit in a London hospital.

The Department of Health refused to disclose whether the patient was a British citizen or where exactly he had contracted the disease.

The First Baby With Wuhan Coronavirus is Born | Coronavirus update

A Chinese team of doctors has confirmed the birth of a baby with the new coronavirus that has emerged in China.

The mother of the newborn had been diagnosed with the virus, so this case increases the possibility that the virus can be contracted in the womb.

SpaceX wants to send three tourists to the ISS

The US space company SpaceX wants to send three tourists to the International Space Station ISS.

It is planned that the tourists will travel to the ISS in the second half of 2021 together with a commander in the "Crew Dragon" space capsule, as the Texas start-up Axiom - SpaceX's partner company in the project - announced on Thursday.Neither of the two companies gave any indication of how much the tourists would probably have to pay for the trip. 

The costs for the launch of the Falcon 9 rocket alone, which will transport the space capsule into space, amount to around 60 million dollars (53 million euros).

In addition, the construction of a new "Crew Dragon" capsule must be financed.

🔹 In this respect, the ticket for the flight should cost tens of millions of dollars.

In earlier years, a total of eight tourists had already travelled to the ISS in Russian Soyuz capsules. 

The first was US entrepreneur Dennis Tito in 2001, who paid 20 million dollars for a vacati…

A new species of insect was named after Lady Gaga for being eccentric. | Kaikaia gaga

Insect was named after Lady GagaBrendan Morris, PhD at the University of Illinois, observed the behavior of about a thousand treehoppers for his research project when he suddenly noticed one female who was different from the others.

Scientists decided to name the recently discovered insect in honor of Lady Gaga for their "eccentric sense of style," NME reports.

In the scientific publication Zootaxa, he and his co-author, the entomologist Christopher Dietrich, wrote about it "an additional cross m-cu (between the fourth and fifth longitudinal veins) in the front wing, as well as a frontal-clipella form".

Morris decided to call the insect "Kaikaia gaga" so that specialists could understand what kind of species we are talking about.

"If there ever is a Lady Gaga bug, it will definitely be a treehopper bug because of its crazy horns and eccentric sense of style. They don't look like anything you've seen before," he explained.

Now Morris hopes…

Scientists propose to fight viruses with fullerenes

Fight viruses with fullerenes
Scientists from Skoltech and the Institute of Problems of Chemical Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences have created water-soluble fullerene compounds that have valuable biological properties. The results of the study are published in the journal Chemical Communications. Thanks to this biological properties they can be used to develop effective antiviral drugs, including to suppress the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

Fullerenes are molecular compounds composed of three-coordinated carbon atoms, which are closed convex polyhedra. Depending on the number of atoms in the molecule, fullerenes resemble a soccer ball (C 60 ) or a rugby ball (C 70 ) in shape.

Compounds based on fullerenes have a pronounced antiviral, antibacterial, antitumor and antioxidant activity, so scientists have long viewed them as a promising basis for the creation of new drugs. Unfortunately, fullerenes are absolutely insoluble in water, which prevents their use in medicine.

Medications have positive results in research for the treatment of coronavirus; here are 4 possibilities

Medicine used against malaria for almost 100 years and others without approval in Brazil are among the most promising after tests.

What do dolphins and whales drink if there's only salt water around?

Have you ever wondered how dolphins and other marine mammals obtain fresh water when they have been in salty environments all their lives? 

They don't have a desalination unit like in the gills of marine fish, and their kidneys can't dissolve sedimentary minerals. What kind of trick did nature invent?They can't drink seawater: with dolphins and whales, nature played an evil joke. It would seem that they are surrounded by water, but the use of salt water, on the contrary, will lead to dehydration and death.
In the case of sea fish, part of the salt that comes with sea water into the body is desalinated in the gills, and the salty surpluses come out with urine.
The salty environment in which they live, constantly pulls moisture out of the fish through the skin. It's a natural process - osmosis.

Therefore, these sea creatures have to drink sea water all the time and the more salt they have in them, the more they have to drink.
Dolphins and whales can't do that. They have n…
