July 1, 2013 by Hans Sniffing out a rumbling volcanoA big toy helicopter could assist to predict volcanic eruptions in the perfect time to safely and securely evacuate the surrounding place, based on geophysicists who've just been awarded $100,000 to build their idea. When contemporary, eruptionready magma comes deep from the heart of the volcano, it has a tendency to launch carbon dioxide. Given that the magma rises, additionally, it pushes sulfur dioxide out of the volcano. Recognizing variations in the ratio of such gases all-around a volcano must show no matter if it really is about to blow but whilst sulfur dioxide is routinely calculated by vulcanologists, taking carbon dioxide measurements is actually a substantially more substantial problem. Carbon dioxide degrees within the atmosphere are incredibly significant compared to amounts of sulfur dioxide. Therefore the part the volcano provides to [the qualifications carbon dioxide levels] is, relatively talking, next to nothing, states Andrew McGonigle, a geophysicist through the University of Sheffield, British isles. In 1993, six vulcanologists died when Galeras, a volcano in Colombia, erupted when they have been wanting to just take fuel measurements. To avoid similar tragedies, McGonigle is acquiring an unmanned aerial auto (UAV) to fly under the plume of an lively but not nonetheless erupting volcano to just take those telltale carbon dioxide measurements. McGonigle showed this may very well be accomplished previously this yr when he flew a small radiocontrolled helicopter to get carbon dioxide measurements at Vulcano, Italy1. These days, Swiss replica watch organization Rolex named McGonigle among 5 laureates in their once-a-year organization awards. McGonigle programs to use the income that will help his plan acquire off. That helicopter can only fly about 400 metres clear of the operator, McGonigle suggests of his very first attempts. What s essential is really a genuinely uptodate UAV so as to make this know-how practical. Hazard zone Stanley Williams, a vulcanologist at Arizona State University, was the one survivor through the Galeras accident, and has faced criticism for major the team of researchers to the crater. Williams suggests he hopes McGonigle s efforts will probably be successful, simply because having carbon dioxide together with sulfur dioxide details will make volcano predictions a lot easier. Measuring two different things is usually improved than simply one, says Williams. But he's sceptical irrespective of whether a little UAV could possibly be at any time be operated at a risk-free ample distance from a number of the earth s most risky, unpredictable volcanoes. UAVs keep guarantee for a lot of scientific purposes, and they are already used in Antarctica to consider pictures and measurements in areas much too remote for individuals to obtain. But these traveling robotic researchers are hampered by regulatory and political challenges (see Traveling robots have their wings clipped). Working with the Rolex dollars he will acquire and package out his following UAV probably a further helicopter to hold as much as 5 kilograms of sensors back again and forth by the fuel plume. ~Hans This entry was posted by Hans at 7:58 am and is particularly submitted underneath. It is possible to comply with any responses to this entry by means of the feed. It is possible to, or from a individual website. For two times, 6 grids (totalling a hundred and fifty vehicles) took turns on a selective program, in superior climatic conditions, placing on an enjoyable clearly show of skirmishes to the thirteen,000 spectators.
In the Peter Vehicle Trophee Legende, Grand Prix and Pre-War Sportscars, it absolutely was Thierry Chanoine (n° 68) at the wheel of a Riley who took the lead and held it right up to the finish line. Although Gregory Ramouna's Bugatti tracked him nose-to-tail with the first half of the race, within the end it was J. J. Bally in his BMW 328 who took second place on the winner's podium.
The Trophee Junior, Formula Junior (1957-1963), saw John Fryda in his Lotus 22 take the lead from the off for your first leg, but he was then outflanked by Jonathan Hugues (n° 91) at the wheel of his Brabham BT6, who took control of the rest of the race. As for third place, it had been neck-and-neck between Philippe Buhofer (n° 53) and Joao Paulo Campos Costa (n° 56) until the half-way mark when the Portuguese driver let a place on the podium slip through his fingers.
A dogged struggle between Arnaud Rechede (n° 55) and Alain Girardet (n° 1) marked the first round of the Trophee Pyrenees, Formula Ford (1966 1981), a duel that was cut short on the last lap when the n° 1 did a 180° spin. It had been a mistake that opened the way for Olivier Rechede, Arnaud's brother, to take second place. The two local drivers were followed by Pierre Lombardi (n° 3). The Rechede brothers (n° 55 and n° 33) started the second race very well but a minor collision worked in Alain Girardet's (n° 1) and David Zollinger's (n° 10) favour.
In the Trophee Argentin, Grand Prix Pre-61 front engine, it absolutely was Julian Bronson at the wheel of a Scarab Offenhauser, who dominated the race after Paddins Dowling experienced a problem at start up. Not that this stopped him taking second place! And it is worth noting that third place went to Tony Smith driving Phil Hill's Ferrari 246 Dino, the very same car that won the last F1 victory for front-engined Ferraris. While in the second round, the same names were first over the finish line but in a different order.
The first race of the Trophee de Pau, Grand Prix Pre-61 rear engine, brought many surprises. From the start, Peter Horsman and Stephen Bond opened hostilities with some wheel-to-wheel sparring that resulted in a collision. In the second race, positions remained unchanged.
Peter Auto's Trophee Phil Hill, Sixties' Endurance Pre-66 Touring, saw Yvan Mahe's (n° 1) and Michel Lecourt's (n° 19) AC Cobras lead from the start, but the n° 19 was forced to abandon the race after 7 laps due to clutch failure. As for Didier Denat's (n° 70) and Damien Kohler's (n° 16) Porsche 911s, they locked horns for third place, but it had been the n° 70 who had a podium finish. At the wheel of his AC Cobra, Yvan Mahe's domination of the second race, with a three-lap lead, was unchallenged.
Laurent Majou, second on the start grid, led the Trophee Mini all the way to the finish line. Alongside the racing, classic car clubs also gathered for their annual meeting in Pau. Nearly 800 collectors' cars and trucks assembled in one place was a delight for aficionados.
And don't forget another early season highlight of the motorsport calendar, the Spa Classic, which takes place over the three days of 24th, 25th and 26th May on the legendary Spa Francorchamps circuit. For this race, Richard Mille, the principal partner, has created the RM 011 Automatic Spa Classic watch, a limited edition of 50 pieces.
