    Raytheon Technology recently participated in a Maneuver Fires Integrated Experiment (MFIX) at the U.S. Army Fires Center of Excellence, in which its advanced high-power microwave and laser dune buggy engaged and destroyed 45 unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).Raytheon’s high-power microwave system engaged multiple UAV swarms, downing 33 drones, two and three at a time. “The speed and low cost per engagement of directed energy is revolutionary in protecting our troops against drones,” Dr. Thomas Bussing, Raytheon Advanced Missile Systems vice president, said. “We have spent decades perfecting the high-power microwave system, which may soon give our military a significant advantage against...

    A Park Hills, Mo., couple has been charged with abuse of their infant, including possibly dropping the baby while trying to imitate a TV commercial and zapping the baby in a microwave, court documents say. Derick Boyce-Slezak and Mikala Boyce-Slezak, both 22, were each charged Tuesday in circuit court in St. Francois County with felony abuse or neglect of a child... Other court records indicate that the couple are also the parents of a girl, who they waived custody of shortly after she was born in January 2016.

    Love him or hate him, Demolition Ranch sure knows how to entertain. In this video he puts a loaded Glock 19 in the microwave, just because. Which will break first, the Glock or the microwave? Do not try this at home. Unsafe or not, Demolition Ranch does this sort of thing for a living.
  • Do Not Toss Your iPhone 6 in the Microwave

    While that might seem obvious to some people, others have fallen for the Wave hoax making its way around online. The fake advertisement insists that the new iOS 8 allows users to charge their iPhones by placing them in a household microwave for a minute and a half. Microwave energy will not charge your smartphone. To the contrary, it will scorch the device and render it inoperable. If you nuke your smartphone and subsequently complain about it online, people will probably make fun of you.

    Let me geek out on you (I love science) and explain to you the science (I love science) and why this had previously been confined to the pages of science fiction (I am a nerd; and oh Dear Sweet Bunsen-Burner Lighting Lord, do I love science). So it's a pretty firmly established principle that every act causes, and requires, an equal and opposite reaction. If I understand this right (did I mention I love science?), this means that any space vessel will have to carry with it an enormous amount of reaction mass. You can't -- we think, or thought...

    If the tests of the Cannae Drive technology hold up, a trip to Mars could take weeks instead of months 7 inShare NASA has been testing new space travel technologies throughout its entire history, but the results of its latest experiment may be the most exciting yet if they hold up. Earlier this week at a conference in Cleveland, Ohio, scientists with NASA's Eagleworks Laboratories in Houston, Texas, presented a paper indicating they had achieved a small amount of thrust from a container that had no traditional fuels, only microwaves, bouncing around inside it. If the results can be...

  • Swirls in the Afterglow of the Big Bang Could Set Stage for Major Discovery

    Scientists have spotted swirling patterns in the radiation lingering from the big bang, the so-called cosmic microwave background (CMB). The observation itself isn't Earth-shaking, as researchers know that these particular swirls or "B-modes" originated in conventional astrophysics, but the result suggests that scientists are closing in on a much bigger prize: B-modes spawned by gravity waves that rippled through the infant universe. That observation would give them a direct peek into the cosmos' first fraction of a second and possibly shed light on how it all began."I see it as a big step forward," says Charles Bennett, a cosmologist...

    Never underestimate the sneakiness when youre dealing with The Most Transparent Administration, Evahs tortured internal conflict between pretending to heed the voices calling for pragmatic economic growth and appeasing the vociferous green interests nipping at their heels. The Obama administration just threw a major bone to said interests with a reevaluation thats going to come in particularly handy in producing very official- and serious-sounding studies and reports, but it was carried out in a very quiet maneuver that Im sure theyre hoping will pass by the public eye generally unnoticed. The Obama administration uses their social cost of carbon estimate...

    Nihon Dengyo Kosaku Co Ltd (Dengyo) announced May 16, 2011, that it has developed a technology to convert electric wave into electricity with high efficiency. Specifically, Dengyo achieved a conversion efficiency of 90% or higher by using a rectenna technology that converts the energy of microwave into direct-current (DC) electricity, it said. The company expects that the new technology will be used to reduce the power consumption of microwave heating devices, harvest energy, etc. This time, Dengyo newly developed a microwave-band rectenna and a rectifier circuit and achieved a power conversion efficiency of 90% or higher in the 2GHz band....

Montgomery County Common Pleas Judge Mary Wiseman sentenced China Arnold, 31, of Dayton, Ohio, who psychologists testified showed no signs of serious mental illness. Arnold declined to make a statement during her sentencing.

    hat dirty motor oil that comes out of your car or truck engine during oil changes could end up in your fuel tank, according to a report presented March 29 at the 241st National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS) in Anaheim, California. It described development of a new process for recycling waste crankcase oil into gasoline-like fuel -- the first, they said, that uses microwaves and has "excellent potential" for going into commercial use. "Transforming used motor oil into gasoline can help solve two problems at once," said study leader Howard Chase, Professor of Biochemical Engineering...

    Latest research deflates the idea that the Universe cycles for eternity.Our view of the early Universe may be full of mysterious circles and even triangles but that doesn't mean we're seeing evidence of events that took place before the Big Bang. So says a trio of papers taking aim at a recent claim that concentric rings of uniform temperature within the cosmic microwave background the radiation left over from the Big Bang might, in fact, be the signatures of black holes colliding in a previous cosmic 'aeon' that existed before our Universe.

    Have we found the universe that existed before the Big Bang? The current cosmological consensus is that the universe began 13.7 billion years ago with the Big Bang. But a legendary physicist says he's found the first evidence of an eternal, cyclic cosmos. The Big Bang model holds that everything that now comprises the universe was once concentrated in a single point of near-infinite density. Before this singularity exploded and the universe began, there was absolutely nothing - indeed, it's not clear whether one can even use the term "before" in reference to a pre-Big-Bang cosmos, as time itself may...

    Reno police say a squid left cooking in microwave is the suspected culprit of noxious fumes that left two apartment dwellers queasy. Authorities don't know if the squid was put in the microwave as a prank or act of cruelty when they found it Sunday night. But they believe the squishy cephalopod was stuck in the microwave by burglars and left to cook in a communal kitchen. Two residents made ill by the fumes were treated at a hospital. Police were still investigating Monday.

    A new nonlethal weapon that uses microwave energy to create intense pain has been deployed in Afghanistan. The Active Denial System, which burns the top layer of skin via microwaves, is in Afghanistan for testing. The weapon is designed to shoot an invisible beam of energy at people, creating an intense burning sensation that forces them to flee. The Air Force has called it the "goodbye effect." It has not been used before in military operations.

    Microwave reactions in silicon carbide vials - which are heated by microwaves but shield the contents from radiation - have confirmed that most of the benefits seen in microwave-assisted chemistry are purely due to heating, Austrian chemists say.1Oliver Kappe and his group, from theUniversity ofGraz, used custom-made sintered silicon carbide (SiC) reaction vessels to separate the heating effects of microwave radiation from so-called 'non-thermal' or 'specific' microwave effects, whereby enhancements in reaction rate, yield or selectivity are attributed to some direct interaction of the reaction mixture with the microwave radiation.Silicon carbide is ideal for this purpose because it completely absorbs...
