TOP   10 WEIRDEST THINGS IN THE UNIVERSE:

Hypervelocity Stars

  

by Dave   Mosher

  
 
 

 

 

The more we look among the stars and galaxies, the weirder things seem to get.

 

Even space itself is puzzling, for example. Recent studies suggest that the fabric of the universe stretches more than 150 billion light-years across -- in spite of the fact that the cosmos is 13.7 billion years old.

 

From super-fast stars to the nature of matter, here we cover other strange and mysterious elements of the universe.

 

10. Hypervelocity Stars

 

If you've ever gazed at the night sky, you've probably wished upon a shooting star (which are really meteors).

 

But shooting stars do exist, and they're as rare as one in 100 million.

 

In 2005, astronomers discovered the first "hypervelocity" star careening out of a galaxy at nearly 530 miles per second (10 times faster than ordinary star movement).

 

We have ideas about what flings these rare stars into deep space, but aren't certain; anything from off-kilter supernova explosions to supermassive black holes might be responsible.

TOP   10 STRANGEST THINGS IN THE UNIVERSE: Black Holes

  

by Dave   Mosher

  
 
 

 

 

9. Black Holes

 

Speaking of black holes, what could be stranger?

 

Beyond a black hole's gravitational border -- or event horizon -- neither matter nor light can escape. Astrophysicists think dying stars about three to 20 times the mass of the sun can form these strange objects. At the center of galaxies, black holes about 10,000 to 18 billion times heavier than the sun are thought to exist, enlarged by gobbling up gas, dust, stars and small black holes.

 

What about mid-sized types? Perhaps surprisingly, evidence is both scarce and questionable for their existence.

TOP   10 STRANGEST THINGS IN THE UNIVERSE: Magnetars

  

by Dave   Mosher

  
 
 

 

 

8. Magnetars

 

The sun spins about once every 25 days, gradually deforming its magnetic field.

 

Well, imagine a dying star heavier than the sun collapsing into a wad of matter just a dozen miles in diameter.

 

Like a spinning ballerina pulling his or her arms inward, this change in size spins the neutron star -- and its magnetic field -- out of control.

 

Calculations show these objects possess temporary magnetic fields about one million billion times stronger than the Earth's. That's powerful enough to destroy your credit card from hundreds of thousands of miles away, and deform ato ultra-thin cylinders.

TOP   10 STRANGEST THINGS IN THE UNIVERSE: Neutrinos

  

by Dave   Mosher

  
 
 

 

 

7. Neutrinos

 

Pull out a dime from your pocket and hold it up for a second... guess what? About 150 billion tiny, nearly massless particles called neutrinos just passed through it as though it didn't even exist.

 

Scientists have found that they originate in stars (living or exploding), nuclear material and from the Big Bang. The elementary particles come in three "flavors" and, stranger still, seem to disappear on a whim.

 

Because neutrinos occasionally do interact with "normal" matter such as water and mineral oil, scientists hope they can use them as a revolutionary telescope to see beyond parts of the universe obscured by dust and gas.

TOP   10 STRANGEST THINGS IN THE UNIVERSE: Dark Matter

  

by Dave   Mosher

  
 
 

 

 

6. Dark Matter

 

If you put all of the energy and matter of the cosmos into a pie and divvy it up, the result is shocking.

 

All of the galaxies, stars, planets, comets, asteroids, dust, gas and particles account for just 4 percent of the known universe. Most of what we call "matter" -- about 23 percent of the universe -- is invisible to human eyes and instruments.

 

For now.

 

Scientists can see dark matter's gravitational tug on stars and galaxies, but are searching feverishly for ways to detect it first-hand. They think particles similar to neutrinos yet far more massive could be the mysterious, unseen stuff.

TOP   10 STRANGEST THINGS IN THE UNIVERSE: Planets

  

by Dave   Mosher

  
 
 

 

 

4. Planets

 

It might sound strange because we live on one, but planets are some of the more mysterious members of the universe.

 

So far, no theory can fully explain how disks of gas and dust aroundform planets -- particularly rocky ones.

 

Not making matters easier is the fact that most of a planet is concealed beneath its surface. Advanced gadgetry can offer clues of what lies beneath, but we have heavily explored only a few planets in the solar system.

 

Only in 1999 was the first planet outside of our celestial neighborhood detected, and in November 2008 the first bona fide exoplanet images taken.

TOP   10 STRANGEST THINGS IN THE UNIVERSE: Gravity

  

by Dave   Mosher

  
 
 

 

 

3. Gravity

 

The force that helps stars ignite, planets stay together and objects orbit is one of the most pervasive yet weakest in the cosmos

 

Scientists have fine-tuned just about every equation and model to describe and predict gravity, yet its source within matter remains a complete and utter mystery.

 

Some think infinitesimal particles called gravitons exude the force in all matter, but whether or not they could ever be detected is questionable.

 

Still, a massive hunt is on for major shake-ups in the universe called gravitational waves. If detected (perhaps from a merger of black holes), Albert Einstein's concept that the universe has a "fabric" of spacetime would be on solid ground.

TOP   10 STRANGEST THINGS IN THE UNIVERSE: The Universe

  

by Dave   Mosher

  
 
 

 

 

1. The Universe

 

The source of energy, matter and the universe itself is the ultimate mystery of, well, the universe.

 

Based on a widespread afterglow called the cosmic microwave background (and other evidence), scientists think that the cosmos formed from a "Big Bang" -- an incomprehensible expansion of energy from an ultra-hot, ultra-dense state.

 

Describing time before the event, however, may be impossible.

 

Still, atom smasher searches for particles that formed shortly after the Big Bang could shed new light on the universe's mysterious existence -- and make it a bit less strange than it is today.

My résumé






































About me

With a geology background, I have always been interested in water topics, particularly water supply in arid areas. So I decided to reorient my career towards hydrology and hydrogeology.


M. Eng Hydrology

The main specialization training was a M. Eng studied at the
Center for Hydrographic Studies of the CEDEX, the public research center shared by the Spanish ministries of Environment and Public Works.
This course allowed me acquire a broad while deep view on the main topics of hydrology and hydrogeology, and become familiar with several mathematical models and computer tools frequently used in these disciplines, such as
HEC-RAS, HEC-HMS, CHAC, GRASS GIS, AQUATOOL, etc.


Other specialization courses

Early after graduation, I became interested in studying postgraduate courses abroad. I took two specialized courses in the UK as a complement to the hydrology basis provided by the M.Eng.

Water Pollution Control, studied at the University of Hertfordshire, provided me with a deep insight on scientific, technical and administrative aspects of water quality and water treatment.

Environmental Engineering for Developing Countries, took at the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne, greatly helped me approach and understand those topics associated to cooperation for development, including water supply, sanitation, technical, social and economic sides of environmentalism, etc. 

Digital Mapping and Remote Sensing helped me get familiar with broadly used GIS tools and systems, mainly ArcView, ArcInfo and Surfer.


One of the most interesting points of all these courses is that they brought me in touch with water resources professionals (civil engineers, geologists, geographers, environmentalists, etc) from Spain, the UK and many places all over the world, which opened a door to understanding the major problems associated with water resources in this part of the world. 


Recent employment

I have recently worked at the
Korea Pavilion at Expo Zaragoza 2008, where I have been in charge of coordinating the RAMS (River Analysis and Modeling System) presentation, developed by several university departments, led by the Seoul National University's Environmental Hydraulics Engineering Laboratory and the engineering consultancy Websolus, and presented at the Water Tribune.



Languages

    
I have had a passion for languages and hieroglyphs since my early childhood. Learning Korean and traditional Chinese started as a hobby. It also became a basis for approaching other Asian languages (Mandarin and Japanese), which I currently study, paying special attention to the ethimological roots of technical and scientific vocabulary related to my fields of interest.


Prospects and interests

Professionally, I would like to focus on the fields of Hydrology (particulary hydrologic modeling and simulation systems applied to Integrated Watershed Management), Hydrogeology and Cooperation for Development projects related to water supply and sanitation in developing areas. 

I would like my professional activity to become a small contribution to addressing water management problems, in close relationship with poverty reduction and sustainable development, and also spreading the message in order to 1) helping raise public awareness on the importance of these topics, 2) encouraging people to work and research in these areas, investors to pay attention to development projects, etc . To this purpose I would like to dedicate my technical, writing and creative skills.
I dedicate some of my free time to expressing thoughts and feelings (often related to or inspired by water issues and other social problems) by means of: writing, drawing, photography, video and the combination of all the above.

I will highly appreciate information on your public or private projects related to integrated watershed management in particular, and water and environmental problems in general, as well as cooperation for development projects in a broad sense.


All comments and suggestions about
Hydrogeoville or the topics it deals with will be very welcome.

Best regards,

About Hydrogeoville


About this blog

        I would like to share interesting ideas about Water and Environmental issues that I find during my research; therefore, this space will be a "collage" of information from a variety of sources (Internet, books and magazines, courses, seminars, etc...). 

As a topic, Water and Environmental Management is very varied and closely interconnected with other scientific disciplines and aspects of sustainable development, such as social and economic issues, health, gender geography, etc.

I would like to write about all these topics and hence underline the importance of multidisciplinary approaches in addressing development challenges, but, due to time limitations, information on Hydrogeoville will, for now, deal mainly with the topics of my current research:

* Integrated watershed management

* Poverty reduction and water management

* Water supply and sanitation


The contribution of this space to spreading technical knowledge and raising awareness will be unavoidably small; links to deeper information sources will, therefore, be an important part of Hydrogeoville.

I also would like to use this space as a window open to getting in touch with people from all over the world in order to exchanging materials, ideas and projects about water-related, environmental and cooperation topics.

Thank you for your interest and best wishes

28.06.2008 | Expertos, sindicatos y activistas mundiales presentaron alternativas que resuelvan el acceso universal al agua en Zaragoza

Expertos, activistas y movimientos sindicales mundiales presentaron esta semana alternativas que resuelvan el acceso universal al agua, en el Seminario Internacional sobre Gestión pública participativa del Agua y el fracaso de la mercantilización,, organizado por Sustainlabour e Ingeniería Sin Fronteras en el marco del Pabellón El Faro de Iniciativas Ciudadanas de Expo, del 23 al 29 de junio de 2008.

Rueda de prensa Sigue las crónicas desde Zaragoza en el blog de El Faro

Las organizaciones exigen a los gobiernos que ratifiquen y apliquen  la declaración del agua como derecho humano. Los más de 50 activistas presentes, implicados en luchas en sus países, llaman la tención sobre las consecuencias devastadoras de las políticas de muchos de los países presentes a la vez en la Expo. Advierten de la urgencia de aplicar modelos de gestión pública del agua ante el fracaso de la gestión privada en países de África y Sudamérica.

Consulta:
Dossier “Gestión pública participativa del agua”
Ponencias presentadas

Las organizaciones reclaman que el V Foro Mundial del Agua que tendrá lugar en Estambul, Turquía, en marzo de 2009, adopte nuevas políticas que garanticen el derecho al agua.

Leer más sobre el Foro de Turquía 2009

Los informes elaborados muestran las consecuencias devastadoras de los planes de privatización en países de África y Sudamérica. Diversos procesos de privatización en muchas partes del mundo han demostrado su ineficacia y su injusticia al buscar el beneficio en la gestión y han generado graves consecuencias para los colectivos invisibilizados por los poderes económicos y políticos dominantes.

El Agua es un bien básico indispensable para la vida que no puede ser considerado bien económico sujeto a las leyes del mercado y que, a pesar de que es un bien humano básico según la Observación General nº 15 de Naciones Unidas, no ha sido ratificado por muchos gobiernos ni aplicado por muchos más. Además, la gestión privada ha fracasado estrepitosamente, de hecho, el  50% de las concesiones a las empresas privadas en América Latina han sido reasumidas por los poderes públicos por incumplimiento de contrato.

Por otra parte, organizaciones participantes en el Seminario de la Gestión Pública, como la Red Vida (Vigilancia Interamericana para la Defensa y el Derecho al Agua) ha hecho público un comunicado alertando sobre las contradicciones de la organización de Expo Zaragoza. Leer el comunicado de Red Vida


En la rueda de prensa del jueves 26, comparecieron Anil Naidoo, representante del Blue Planet Proyect desarrollado por Council of Canadians; Renato Di Nicola, representante del Abruzzo Social Forum de Italia; Adriana Marquiso, representante del Consejo Nacional en Defensa del Agua de Uruguay y Eloi Badia, representante de Ingeniería Sin Fronteras.

A pesar del esfuerzo de muchos profesionales del periodismo, la cobertura de los medios acreditados en la Expo dejó de lado la rueda de prensa convocada para presentar propuestas a la crisis hídrica mundial. La información se aborda superficialmente sin incidir en las causas de la falta de acceso. La gravedad de la crisis del agua sigue sin recibir una atención mediática proporcional.

Foro Mundial de Luchas del agua A continuación del Seminario, tuvo lugar en Zaragoza el Foro de las Luchas por el Agua, un encuentro entre organizaciones sociales y grupos de defensa del medio ambiente , entre quienes luchan por la gestión pública participativa y los defensores de los ríos, así como los afectados.

Estuvieron presentes más de 50 ponentes de todo el mundo y de distintos sectores: sindical, social, medioambiental, movimiento vecinal o académico.

RAMS and the Water Tribune

1. The Water Tribune


    The Water Tribune is the school of thought which has been created, parallel to the visual, cultural and leisure elements of the Expo in response to the requirements of an International Exposition which stems from the will to stimulate reflection, debate and a search for solutions in relation to water and sustainability. To compile and synthesize universal knowledge in order to contribute to the reorientation and improvement of the current models and systems in place regarding water and sustainable development for the 21st century, from the perspective of innovation. This objective will be attained through the development of a series of activities (Themed weeks, Agora, Events and Parallel Meetings) and the participation of the most relevant international players from today"s water scene.

This objective will be attained through the development of a series of activities (Themed weeks, Agora, Events and Parallel Meetings) and the participation of the most relevant international players from today"s water scene.








The mission of the Water Platform, the intellectual vehicle for Expo Zaragoza 2008, points toward a meeting of minds regarding the most compelling issues of water and sustainable development, for debate, conciliation, summary, organisation, distillation, edition, publication and diffusion. The legacy of the Water Tribune, as described in the Zaragoza Charter, will contribute to the positioning of Zaragoza as a world authority on water-related issues, able to offer its experience in order to benefit the Mediterranean Basin and the Latin American countries. (Text source: www.expo2008.es ; photos: luis AF).



The Water Tribune, whose role it is to provide the intellectual foundations for Expo Zaragoza 2008 will provide a platform for more than 2000 international experts in the field of water, over ten Themed Weeks divided into 25 major themes. Scientists, technicians, administrators and users, entrepreneurs, politicians, philosophers, academics, researchers, communicators, intellectuals and students will put forward their proposals for public policies, some of which will be new, and others which will recall the valuable knowledge gained in the past.


Climate change, the geopolitics of water, health and education will all be elements which are present in the Themed Weeks. This is not only meant for debate, but also as a vehicle to find solutions to the new paradigm for water in the 21st Century. The work sessions, in which experts and members of the public will participate, will take place from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm in the Water Tribune Pavilion. In the final days of Expo Zaragoza 2008, and as a culmination to the Themed Weeks, the International Symposium on Water and Sustainable Development will take place on 11th September. This event will synthesize and bring coherence and meaning to the results and proposals which will be fully documented and publicly announced at the reading of the Zaragoza Charter. The Themed Weeks will be broadcast to the five continents, in collaboration with the World Bank, through several videoconference sessions which will allow the dialogue on water to be carried beyond the banks of the River Ebro.

Registration, schedule and thematic weeks:
http://www.expozaragoza2008.es/WaterTribune

The Agora

The Ágora is a space within the Water Tribune devoted to citizenship participation. It offers a rich and plural schedule which includes scientists, politicians, communicators and artists. The visitors to the exhibition will have access to the world of water within a context in which their comments, doubts, thoughts or criticisms will constitute the central axis of the sessions. With the aid of state-of-the-art technologies, the virtual visitors will have direct access, in real time, to the development of the sessions and their contributions will also be collected and discussed during the Expo.
 

The Water Cinema

The Water Tribune counts with an audiovisual programme developed together with the
International Secretariat for Water (ISW), formed by more than 180 hours of cinema projections directly related to the topic of the exhibition: "Water and Sustainable Development". In many cases, the tapes are either unpublished or have not been distributed in our country.


Parallel events

The Water Tribune will give near 60 Meetings and Parallel Events the possibility to take advantage of the infrastructure of Expo Zaragoza 2008 in order to hold their activities. Many public and private, national and international organisations and institutions have been invited to bring greater plurality and wealth of knowledge to the Legacy of the Water Tribune.

The Meetings and Parallel Events to be held during the International Exposition will take place at different locations: the Water Tribune Pavilion, the Auditorium of the University of Zaragoza, the Auditorium of the Instituto Tecnológico de Aragón (Aragon Institute of Technology), the CIAMA (International Water and Environment Centre) headquarters and the Huesca Conference Centre are some of the spaces associated to this initiative.
