We all live in a yellow ...  underwater research station!
National Georgraphic Channel - October 25, 2007
60 Feet beneath the surface, around 3 and a half miles off Florida's Key Largo, lies the Aquarius Station. Owned by NOAA, its the only underwater laboratory in the world. Here scientists study the coral reefs of this sunlit zone.  . . Biology professor Mark Hay from Georgia Tech is conducting research at Aquarius, and sheds some light of his own on life aboard Aquarius. ( watch the video... | NOAA's Aquarius )

A better definition for the Kilogram?
Two Tech emeritus professors say it's time to define the kilogram in a new and more elegant way. They've made a proposal to redefine the kilogram as the mass of a very large - but precisely specified-number of carbon-12 atoms. The official kilogram – a cylinder cast 118 years ago from platinum and iridium and known as the International Prototype Kilogram or “Le Gran K” – has been losing mass, about 50 micrograms at last check. The change is occurring despite careful storage at a facility near Paris.  (full story...)
