'Artificial blubber' to protect divers in icy water: Here's how 21.6.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
Scientists have created wetsuits with 'artificial blubber' that can keep deep sea divers warm in icy cold water. When rescue teams are diving under ice-covered rivers or ponds, the survival time even in the best wetsuits is very limited - as little as tens of minutes, and the experience can be extremely painful at best. Researchers from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and George Mason University in the US developed a simple treatment that can improve the survival time for a conventional wetsuit by a factor of three. The process works by simply placing the standard neoprene wetsuit inside a pressure tank autoclave no bigger than a beer keg, filled with a heavy inert gas, for about a day. The treatment then lasts for about 20 hours, far longer than anyone would spend on a dive, said Jacopo Buongiorno, professor at MIT. The process could also be done in advance, with the wetsuit placed in a sealed bag to be opened just before use, he said. Researchers looked at the different strategies that ...

Indian plant seed could bring clean water to millions, say scientists 21.6.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
Proteins from the Moringa oleifera plant - a tree native to India - can help effectively purify water in developing nations at a low cost, say scientists. The plant - commonly known as the drumstick tree - is cultivated for food and natural oils, and the seeds are already used for a type of rudimentary water purification. However, this traditional means of purification leaves behind high amounts of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) from the seeds, allowing bacteria to regrow after just 24 hours. This leaves only a short window in which the water is drinkable. Researchers from Carnegie Mellon University in the US used sand and plant materials to create a cheap and effective water filtration medium, termed "f-sand." F-sand was created by extracting the seed proteins from the Moringa oleifera plant, and adhering them to the surface of silica particles, the principal component of sand.  It kills microorganisms and reduces turbidity, adhering to particulate and organic matter. These undesirable contaminants and ...
