Experts Raised ‘Increased Warning’ Over Active Volcanos Amid “High Risk” Activity

by Peter G., Tech Times

Yellowstone volcano is acting up once again, with an “increased risk” warning. Scientists are uneasy with the deep magma intrusion that has been building up ever since it was discovered in nearly four decades ago. 

Scientists Use GPS Data to Model What Might Have Happened Below The Surface

As scientists continue to speculate as to what happened underneath the surface of Yellowstone, they had to resort to the usage of GPS modeling to render what might have happened to explain the erratic nature of the location. The surface seems to be deflating and inflating in irregular patterns. Continue reading Experts Raised ‘Increased Warning’ Over Active Volcanos Amid “High Risk” Activity

Synthetic diamonds could one day replace GPS – and make driverless cars a reality

by Jon Yeomans, The Telegraph

Lab-grown red diamonds with an atomic defect could one day replace GPS systems thanks to their remarkable sensitivity to magnetic waves, scientists have suggested.

A team at Element Six, a tech company based in Oxfordshire, are exploring the remarkable properties of crystals with a so-called ‘nitrogen vacancy defect’ – a gap in the atomic lattice at the heart of the diamond.
