Norway will cut through an island in tribute to massacre victims
How do you adequately craft a memorial for one of the worst days in a country’s modern history? That’s the question that was posed to architects and artists as part of a competition for a dual-site memorial commemorating the attacks in Norway on July 22nd, 2011. On that day, 77 people were killed, eight by an Oslo car bomb and 69 in a massacre at a youth event on the island of Utøya. After holding an open competition, Norway has decided to install a pair of memorials designed by Swedish artist Jonas Dahlberg to pay tribute to those who lost their lives in the attacks.
Oil Spills Inspire Hydrocarbon Sensor
Within a decade, it may be possible to detect toxic petrochemical levels in the world’s oceans on a daily basis, via a network of remote sensors.
Scientists at CSIRO and the Univ. of Western Australia have been working to develop a tool to detect aromatic hydrocarbons (benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, p-xylene and naphthalene) at very low concentrations in aqueous solutions. CSIRO research scientist Bobby Pejcic says the research was prompted by incidents such as oil spills.
