Comments Off on Hawaii Considers Plan to Protect Endangered Birds with Lasers

Well here’s a surprising way to save birds. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service , the Hawai?i Division of Forestry and Wildlife and the Kaua?i Island Utility Cooperative (KIUC) have announced that they are mulling over a plan to place lasers on top of transmission poles throughout Hawaii in order to stop birds from colliding with them. It is hoped that the use of high-concentrated light will stop the islands’ endangered birds from hitting electrical lines .

Quartz Crystal photo from Shutterstock While most of us are just getting used to the idea of 3D printing , scientists are already working on technological marvels that operate two dimensions deeper. Researchers at the University of Southampton recently announced that they were able to record and retrieve five dimensional digital data using a quartz crystal. The  ‘Superman’ memory crystal is a futuristic storage technique with unprecedented features – including a 360 terabyte per disc data capacity, thermal stability up to 1000°C and a practically unlimited lifetime.

Researchers at Switzerland’s University of Geneva have come up with an interesting way of making it rain– shooting lasers high up into the sky . Though the strategy seems like science fiction, the team hopes that the lasers will be able to increase rainfall in areas that need it.
