When a powerful supernova in an unstable irregular galaxy threatens to engulf the isolated, lonely and only known planet containing life, Dabier, the world of green and seas, the best engineers in many different fields of experimental physics took to finding a way to thwart the cosmic phenomena taking place. Force fields and other barriers were deemed ineffective, as well as mass migration plans proving to be too costly and inefficient to implement. Just as all hope seemed to have been lost, and the planet at large had resigned to its sad fate, it was found that by manipulating certain elements of human DNA strands, one could encode information in certain amino acid chains that, when exposed to certain anomalous particle properties, would …show more content…
The war was disastrous for the two major sides: Cadenne and Yebucha, who destroyed themselves in the struggle to obtain the secret advancements in technology. However, in a twisted turn of events, the research hub was destroyed, releasing a violent neurotoxin into the water supply, rapidly spreading throughout the air in the form of clouds, making nearly all the water on the planet unpotable. Thus, after about 2 years, the world's human population was reduced to nothing. Try as she might, the young, all-loving and innocent Elisea could do little to stop the events from taking place - she simply could not figure out how to transmute the water sources to become potable again. Heartbroken at the sight of people and animals losing their lives without purpose, her "father," a researcher who had spent the most time with her throughout her life, drugged her and put the girl on a one-way primitive starship that the Cadenni had been trying to develop before the CS project.
Upon her waking the next morning, she had been flung from the planet's atmosphere. The first thing Elisea tried to accomplish was attempting to telepathically create a link to the researchers at the facility back home, but it was no use; she was too far now from the ruined biosphere. As time trudged mercilessly on, she no longer knew where she was headed,

Erich Von Daniken’s theories have been rejected by the scientific community, and some of his early claims have even been proven fraudulent. However, Von Daniken continues on his quest to prove his theories, and during an interview with Florida Today he said, “Even if someone could find an object definitely not of this planet, and they could give it to the scientific communities, I'm sure it would take much too long for this society to accept that something extraterrestrial exists. I have started something. There are 56 million copies of my books worldwide. But now it is not just Erich Von Daniken. It is others, many others, as well. You cannot kill the idea anymore, never.”
Throughout the early 19th and 20th century, many scientists have studied deoxyribonucleic acids in order to attain higher understanding over the matter. Johann G. Mendel had figured out and understood the laws of heredity. Friedrich Miescher amazingly discovered DNA in 1869, even though scientists did not understand DNA was the genetic material
The author explains the basics of DNA by describing the simple part of it, “proteins are the molecules that do all of the work in every organism, from carrying oxygen, to building tissue, to copying DNA for the next generation” (Carroll 73). He also explained the four bases that are building blocks that are held together by strong bonds and are represented by the letters A, C, G and T. Scientist also learned that A and T always pair with each other as well as G and C, this helps them because if they know one strand of DNA they already know the second because of how the bases match up. The author states that scientists have found about 500 genes that exist in all forms of life, the author explains that these genes are “immortal”. These genes have endured millions of years of evolution and have not been mutated because they are essential for every organism to have; these genes can have important jobs such as decoding of the DNA and RNA and making
In the early 1950s, the race to find the structure of DNA was in full swing. The search was being conducted at three different colleges. At the California Institute of Technology, Linus Pauling,
As well as with the animals thousands die due to the chemical, materials, and weapons they test on them. Also, the military does not need to get a permit to make an atomic weapon or any other illegal action. After all, the military creates their own policy that can protect them from being sued. Since the military can argue that it is in the benefit of ‘national security.’ This affected the people who live in these third work countries where there is no regulation on not to pollute at times people have to migrate to different places just as in the book when many people had to leave their hometown. Furthermore, not only in the book they used all their natural resources, but researchers in the documentary called “Flow of Love of water,” said in different rivers the level of water is decreasing and that in 2020 there would not be as much as clean water due to the fact that corporation are calming the water and putting them in bottles and selling them for profit. As the elderly people from the book, the new generation would not be able to experience and see the ways the environment used to be like. Also, in the American agricultural, the
The conflict caused everyone's lives to change quickly. they had to move on eventually because they couldn't go back and not have a bomb so they continued with the future and moved on with their lives. Entry 6 7/27/15
The author uses the aspect of how the children’s health deteriorating to have the audience moved through the concept of devastation, making them sway in his argument. He even fuels the audience anger by stating how the government, for years, have not funded the people to help with water, causing the people to get stuck with using contaminated water. Using these points to make the audience feel a certain way after reading the article and want to help with what is going in
Life as we know it is far more complex than one can imagine. The smallest molecule in the human body can play a large role in determining the genetic outcome or the overall well being of a person. In Peter Nielsen’s “Designing a New Molecule of Life”, he speaks of a molecule that hopefully one day will create a scientific and medical breakthrough. In this essay you will read a summary of Peter Nielsen’s article and the research he has done with this molecule.
The agriculture industry lost around 1.7 billion dollars, due to not having the proper water allocations for the fields. On the west wide of the valley, half of their 600,000 acres of farmland went fallow, because they didn’t have enough water to farm them. And about 14,500 farm workers in the Central Valley lost their jobs. Without the proper water allocations, farmers will have to continue to pump ground water at extremely high costs, which will force people out of the industry and raise the price of the products produced by the those who can stay in. The impact of the fight over water ripples far beyond those just in agriculture, it affects all of
Soon after, the Love Canal exploded (www2.epa.gov). Rainwater filled the soil raising the chemicals to the surface. These chemicals filled in homes, the school, and created many problems for families. Children became burned, people found themselves with inflamed skin, and mothers had to watch their children suffer with sickness. Along with these effects came one that seemed a nightmare. Children were born with birth defects. One child was born deaf, with a cleft lip, and even had an extra row of teeth. Another child was born without eyes. Mothers became frightened. Frantically, they went to the government for help. The families wanted the problem fixed without losing their homes or moving away. They wanted the government to relocate them and fix the problem, but the government didn't listen, so the mothers began to riot. They started petitions, marches, and gatherings for the community. Picket signs were made and children marched with their swollen
In The Water Wars written by Cameron Stracher, humanity struggles to survive in a parched, dry, and post-apocalyptic Earth. The narrator, Vera, lives with his brother Will in the Republic of Illinowa, once a part of the United States. Everything in her life was normal until she and her brother decided to venture on a dangerous and perilous journey beyond their republic in order to save Kai, a boy who somehow seems to have unlimited drinking water. All the dangers and events unfolded because of one key decision made by Vera.
For my entertaining biology article, I chose to review an episode of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey called “Some of the Things That Molecules Do” which is a documentary television series and follow-up to the 1980 series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage. This series was brought back as a revitalization of space in the public eye. The main principle behind this series was to bring space back to the forefront of our curiosity as Americans. Neil deGrasse Tyson does an amazing job presenting fairly complex concepts in a way that would capture the attention of anyone watching and give them knew knowledge on difficult concepts that they can share with others.
