  • The findings, published today in the open-access journal eLife , represent the first time the human epithelial sodium channel has been shown so precisely since it was first isolated and described through expression cloning in 1993, said senior author Isabelle Baconguis, Ph.D., assistant professor in the OHSU Vollum Institute. (phys.org)
  • Professor Rougier added: "On balance, we have been slightly lucky not to experience any super-eruptions since then. (eurekalert.org)

  • One of these events occurs in the decade of the 1620s BC and coincides very precisely with a previously suggested volcanic event at 1626 BC (now 1627 BC) put forward by LaMarche. (abovetopsecret.com)
  • The atmospheric pressure at the planet's surface is 92 times that of Earth, or roughly the pressure found 900 m (3,000 ft) underwater on Earth. (wikipedia.org)
