Brazil’s Amazônia-1 Will Spy on Bandits with Saws

The Amazônia-1 is keeping an eye on buy cheap generic viagra deforestation in the Brazilian forests and cialis with 4 free viagra urban expansion around the world. Brazil announced it will launch the satellite in 2011 and will use a high-resolution camera to capture potentially illegal activity in forests, particularly in the Amazon and Congo rainforests.

Going Google Earth with the idea, the satellite will orbit the earth 14 times a day at a distance of 400 miles collecting images from several countries. Each camera can pick up images showing 10 meters of actual terrain in each pixel on the photo – that’s some pretty detailed imagery.

Tyrson Villela, director for satellites and applications at the Brazilian told that the data will be freely available to research centers in Brazil and other countries. “Having access to this information will help other tropical countries to fight their environment issues,” says Villela. Besides making environmental observations and natural resources management, the Amazônia-1 will also map out remote areas, and conduct coastal and disaster monitoring.

While this technology and the purpose of its use are both pretty cool, they’re not by any means unique or break-through. Especially if the satellite isn’t launching for another three years. The bottom line seems to be that Brazil wants to viagra 30 mg step up with technology. But if it keeps illegal deforestation in check, then go for it.

High-Tech Water Collection Cuts through Fog

When I’m alone in the wilderness, I like to imagine what I’d have to do to survive if I found myself in dire straits. I’d eat gnats and toads and catch rainwater using a low-tech system I’d devise with Maple Leaves, rocks, fishing line, and a canteen. Or, I could just bring the fog and dew harvesters designed by British inventor Alon Alex Gross. (Given the stack of evidence against my survival skills, this is probably a good idea.)

The device may prove a boon in the water-scarce Third World, where disease and cialis pfizer canada infection borne through contaminated drinking water are a leading cause of death. It is a whole lot cheaper than some of canadian cialis united pharmacy the fancy-schmancy water collectors we’ve seen lately, hanging out instead with the other easy-to-use concepts.

Goss’s dew collector weighs less than a pound and can collect just under half a gallon per night. It features a special laminate foil that attracts dew, and a sensor that reacts to atmospheric changes and opens/closes the it's cool cialis to buy device, depending on conditions. His fog harvester can collect just over 2.5 gallons in 24 hours.
