MOSCOW Early Wynn White Sox Jersey
, Feb. 5 (Xinhua) -- Russia successfully launched a cargo spacecraft into the space, the federal space agency Roscosmos said Wednesday.
According to the Roscosmos website, the Progress M-22M resupplying vehicle was blasted off from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan at 20:23 Moscow time (1623 GMT).
"The cargo spacecraft has been separated from a carrier rocket nine minutes later," Roscosmos said.
The Progress launched by the so-called short-track scheme is due to dock the International Space Station (ISS) Pirs section at 02:26 Moscow time Thursday (2226 GMT Wednesday).
The ship carries over 2.5 tons of cargo for the ISS crew as well as fuel and scientific equipment.
On Monday, Pirs was vacated by the Progress M-20M with the latter continues its autonomous flight until Feb. 11 when it will be drowned in the Pacific Ocean.
Radiation refers to the energy that is produced by certain objects. The nature and type of radiation normally depends on the object that is emitting the radiation. For example Robin Ventura White Sox Jersey
, the sun emits ultra violet radiation which is also referred to as UV. On the other hand, the radioactive substances such as Uranium and Strontium emit radioactive radiation. This energy can be used in a number of ways including the production of electrical energy. Actually, the most extensive use of the energy is the generation of electrical energy through radioactive reactions. But, radiation can be dangerous to the living organisms. This is mainly because of its ability to cause untold damage to living tissue. The main form of radiation that is capable of this amount of damage is referred to as ionizing energy. It is the energy that is carried by certain particles. The particles that carry this form of energy are able to release it when they come into contact with living tissue. This explains why they are able to cause a lot of damage to living tissue of any kind. Today, there are numerous methods that are used to prevent ionizing radiation from causing any damage to living tissue. But the success of any of such methods depends on a number of factors. Some of the major factors that affect the success of any radiation shielding materials are discussed below.
Time of exposure is one of the most notable factors that determines the amount of radiation a person or living organism can actually absorb. A good number of people have developed chronic illnesses and health complications from the effects of ionisation radiation due to prolonged exposure time. Therefore Bill Melton White Sox Jersey
, it is always advisable to reduce the exposure time in order to avoid suffering the effects of ionisation radiation. There are certain people who have ended up dying because of the high doses of ionisation energy in their body. For example, a high dosage of gamma rays can result in a number of serious health problems including the formation of cancer cells and gene mutation. Similarly, X-rays are also renowned for their ability to cause cancer in living tissue. Despite their wide usage in the medical industry, a prolonged exposure to X-rays can result in cancer and other health problems.
The thickness of the radiation shielding materials also has a significant effect on the effects of radiation exposure. Some materials are better suited for shielding than others, but generally speaking Paul Konerko White Sox Jersey
, the thicker and denser the material, the more effective it is as a radiation shielding material.
For this reason, it is always advisable to use radiation protection materials that are thick enough to ward off the effects of the radiation irrespective of the type. In general, the thickness of radiation protection materials required depends on the nature and type of radiation involved. Different types of radiation, such as gamma and neutron radiation Ozzie Guillen White Sox Jersey
, behave differently and thus require different types of materials in order to be shielded effectively. Therefore, the choice of the radiation shielding material depends on the nature of the radiation involved. For example, gamma rays and X-rays do not have the same penetration powers. Therefore, the shielding materials that are used for each form of radiation vary.
ADDIS ABABA, Jan. 13 (Xinhua) -- Chairperson of the AU Commission Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma on Tuesday strongly condemned the despicable attacks that the Boko Haram terrorist group continues to commit in various parts of Nigeria and elsewhere in the region Luis Aparicio White Sox Jersey
, said AU in a Tuesday statement.
The Chairperson is especially horrified by the recent massacre perpetrated in the town of Baga, in Borno State, and in a market in Potiskum, northeast Nigeria, with the involvement of female suicide bombers Ron Santo White Sox Jersey
, one reported to be as young as ten years old, said the statement.
The Chairperson reiterated AU's full solidarity with the people and Government of Nigeria, and expressed her deep sympathy to the families of the victims.
She reiterated AU's commitment to continue working with Nigeria and the other countries of the Lake Chad Basin Commission, as well as with Benin, towards the mobilization of the required international support to the Multinational Joint Task Force mandated by the countries of the region to combat the Boko Haram terrorist group.
"The Commission will expedite its consultations with the countries of the region towards the effective implementation of the relevant provisions of the communiqué adopted on this issue by the AU Peace and Security Council on 25 November 2014 Jeff Keppinger White Sox Jersey
," according to the statement.
The Chairperson "appeals to the larger international community to renew its unity and support to the countries of the region, in order to defeat the Boko Haram terrorist group, whose only agenda is to cause havoc, destruction and death."
"She stresses the urgency of a coordinated African and international response, in view of the increasing threat that the Boko Haram terrorist group and terrorism in gener.
