Project Quickfind by Michael Wood

Sea Lion TrainerWritten by U.S. Navy Seal veteran Michael P. Wood, Project Quick Find tells the story about U.S. Navy SEALs training sea lions to recover objects from the ocean floor. It takes place from the inception of the Quick Find Project in Hawaii, to the recruiting of Navy SEALs working as sea lion trainers in Coronado, California, as well as the official Navy certification of the Quick Find system. The story continues through the sea lion captures at San Nicholas Island, CA and the Project Quick Find ultimate mission change and expansion of the program while all along illustrating the bond between the sea lions and their SEAL trainers.

This video clip from 1977 shows sea lions learning how to locate and mark inert mine shapes:

Interesting Facts about the Most Destructive Natural Weather Occurrences – Hurricanes

weather photographyHurricanes are giant, spiral tropical storms that occur in the Eastern Pacific Ocean, Caribbean Sea, Southern Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico. These destructive natural weather occurrences can pack wind speeds of over 160 miles an hour and unleash more than 2.4 trillion gallons of rain a day. Hurricanes are also known as cyclones in the Northern Indian Ocean and Bay of Bengal, and as typhoons in the Western Pacific Ocean. They begin as tropical disturbances in warm ocean waters with surface temperatures of at least 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
Hurricanes are huge heating systems that emit energy on a staggering scale. They draw heat from warm, moist ocean air, and release it through condensation of water vapor in thunderstorms. These natural weather occurrences spin around a low-pressure center known as the eye of the storm. The eye is surrounded by a circular “eye wall” that hosts the storm’s strongest winds and rains.  When a hurricane makes landfall it often produces a devastating storm surge that can reach 20 feet high and extend nearly 100 miles.

Facts on Hurricanes

  • A tropical storm is a hurricane which travels about 74 miles per hour or .
  • A huge hurricane can release energy equivalent to 10 atomic bombs per second.
  • Hurricanes also produce mild tornadoes, which can last up to a few minutes.
  • Hurricanes mostly occur from June to November when seas are the warmest, forming  conducive weather for the hurricanes to build up.
  • Hurricanes are large enough to carry winds that travel about 160 miles per hour.

What happens when thousands of galaxies collide?

Collision of GalaxiesGalaxies are composed of dust particles, dark matter, and stars, all held together by gravitational force. If you gaze out into the sky with the help of a professional telescope, you can see thousands of stars in a variety of shapes and sizes. Many galaxies are bunched together in groups or clusters. Since clusters contain so many galaxies relatively close together, it should not be surprising that galaxies sometimes collide with each other.

It is very common for galaxies to collide with other galaxies in the universe. In fact, the collision between galaxies are one of the main elements that drive their evolution in time. When two galaxies pass close to one another, the gravitational force they exert on one another cause both galaxies to interact.

When a collision between two galaxies occur, clouds of gas inside each galaxy may become squeezed. The cloud compression can cause galaxies to collapse under their own gravity. This process can lead to a big explosion of star formation in interacting galaxies and leaving a new-generation of stars in a galaxy.

Astronomers watch the Big Turmoil as thousands of galaxies collide

Astronomers using Chandra X-Ray and VLA observatory have revealed new details of violent collision involving at least four clusters of galaxies. Combined with the recent research through NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, the new details depict a complex region more than five million light-years from the Earth where the interactions are triggering a host of phenomena that astronomers still are working to understand.
