Home » Panorama 6 December 2011No Comment Here are the top 10 scientific discoveries of 2009, according to Time magazine: Our Oldest Ancestor, “Ardi” With her long, elegant fingers, 4-ft. frame and a head no larger than a bonobo’s, it’s hard not to feel a certain fondness for little Ardi, the oldest skeleton of a prehuman hominid ever found.

Top 10 Scientific Discoveries of 2009

Painstakingly pieced together from more than 100 crushed fossil fragments unearthed in Ethiopia, this female specimen of Ardipithecus ramidus (Ardi, for short) lived 4.4 million years ago and had remained anonymous until 1992, when her fragments were first discovered. After 17 years of research, a team of scientists led by Tim D. Announced it had spotted a planetlike object orbiting a star much like our sun. Source: Science Clarified.

Prix Ig Nobel

Le prix Ig Nobel (qui peut être prononcé Ignobel, car nommé ainsi par jeu de mots entre « prix Nobel » et l'adjectif « ignoble ») est un prix parodique décerné à des personnes dont les « découvertes » ou les « accomplissements » peuvent apparaître bizarres, drôles ou absurdes. Parfois dépréciatifs et critiques, les prix sont destinés à célébrer l'insolite, honorer l'imagination et stimuler l'intérêt dans les sciences, la médecine, et la technologie. Principe[modifier | modifier le code] Électroaimant de Bitter : cette grenouille en lévitation grâce à un dispositif magnétique a fait l'objet du prix Ig Nobel de physique 2000. L'énoncé officiel[1] dit que ces prix sont avant tout destinés à éveiller la curiosité du public pour la science en général, bien qu’ils puissent parfois prendre une valeur dénonciatrice (voir partie sur les critères).

In addition to dramatically reducing ice adhesion, these surfaces now have been shown to significantly delay the onset of ice formation in simulated atmospheric icing conditions. The team’s findings were presented at the APS’ 2012 March Meeting. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), an estimated 25 million gallons of de-icing agents are applied to aircraft taking off from U.S. commercial airports each year. In addition, airlines have robust energy intensive heating systems on board to prevent ice formation on airplanes. Página Inicial.
