A photo of a sickly and skinny polar bear in Svalbard, Norway has gone viral, as tragedy unfolds in the Arctic. The shocking image of the starving polar bear was shot by photographer Kerstin Langenberger off the Barents Sea on the Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard. Unfortunately, this bear is not an isolated exception. “Yes, I have seen bears in good shape – but I have also seen dead and starving polar bears,” Langenberger said on her Facebook page.

Comments Off on IBM and DARPA’s Ultra-High-Speed Digital Data Link Sets Energy Efficiency Record

The supercomputers of the future will be capable of amazing feats such as modeling global climate scenarios , running molecular-level simulations of cells, and designing nanostructures. In order to for these “exascale computers” to operate, they will need to be able to run an enormous amount of data quickly while keeping power consumption under control. Scientists at IBM in conjunction with DARPA have created an ultra-high-speed prototype optical link that sets a new energy efficiency record. The researchers are set to describe their invention at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exposition/National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference (OFC/NFOEC) being held in Anaheim, CA from March 17-21.

Study Finds Global Ice Loss in Recent Years Was Enough to Cover the U.S. in 1.5 Feet of Water

Using NASA and the German Aerospace Center’s Gravity Recover and Climate Experiment satellites (GRACE), researchers at the University of Colorado at Boulder have discovered that the Earth’s ice caps and glaciers lost a mammoth amount of water between 2003 and 2010. The group used NASA’s data to research global ice loss from Greenland, Antarctica, Earth’s glaciers and ice caps and deduced that together they lost 4.3 trillion tons (or 1,000 cubic miles) of ice — that’s about eight times the water volume of Lake Erie and enough to make a 1.5 foot-deep lake the size of the United States. This comprehensive study was the first of its kind and was carried out to help understand the implications of Earth’s rising sea levels and how quickly they could affect our lives.
