Skydiver Survives 24 Mile Drop
Felix Baumgartner stood alone at the edge of space, poised in the open doorway of a capsule suspended above Earth and wondering if he would make it back alive. Twenty four miles below him, millions of people were right there with him, watching on the Internet and marveling at the wonder of the moment.
A second later, he stepped off the capsule and barreled toward the New Mexico desert as a tiny white speck against a darkly-tinted sky. Millions watched him breathlessly as he shattered the sound barrier and then landed safely about nine minutes later, becoming the world’s first supersonic skydiver.

Amazing, would love if I tried it.

— Ali ibn Abi Talib (radiAllaahu anhu)
From the quotes of Ali Ibn Aby Taleb.
Heat-Conducting Plastic Removes Salt from Seawater
There are vast quantities of seawater available; drinking water, on the other hand, is in scarce supply. Desalination plants can convert seawater to drinking water. Yet these plants require pipelines made of a special kind of steel or titanium – expensive material that is growing increasingly difficult to procure. Heat-conducting polymer composites may soon replace titanium altogether. Researchers will present this heat-conducting plastic at the Composites trade fair, October 9-11, 2012.
