The latest article does a good job going into anaerobic and aerobic training for sport -- I know a few people who do amateur racewalking, and they gave something similar when talking about why they practiced short running too.

It also makes me want to ask this unrelated questions: If humans (and animals, I presume) can train to build up their strength, speed and endurance, then can plants do the same? How good can they adapt to drastic change in oxygen inthe atmosphere?

Thanks, and to answer your question I don't really know. I did do a quick search on the subject and the few scholarly articles I looked at states that they do adapt. However unlike animals that adapt in ways to increase oxygen supply, plants make adaptations to lower the need for oxygen, specifically lowering metabolic rates, etc. I do know that there is a form of the light dependent reactions (the first half of photosynthesis) that is found in photosynthetic organisms that like in anaerobic (no or low oxygen environments) called cyclic phosphorilation.

It's a nice coincidence to read a post on your blog about the perfect pitch, since I also came across one of the article you linked in the description just a few days ago.

I have got to ask this, though: Do you have any familiarity with playing instruments? Do you have any opinion on the so-called perfect pitch (A.K.A. tuning the instruments to 256 Hz)

Sadly no, the extent of my musical experience ended in the 4th grade with the clarinet after my teacher said I couldn't play sports anymore and I picked sports. So I can't really answer your question.

I hope that you are still around on this forums and see this. I am glad that you started making post again. Hope that we will see another scienctific breakdown in the future.

Also, I notice that there are some of your old posts from 2018 and before are missing images. Maybe you should check out on them?

Not to worry I am still around, but I do not check in often as I don't seem to get much in the way of traffic here. I do have some science stuff in the idea bin but the muse is being a frustrating pain in the but. As for the old posts I will look into them and see what the problem is.

I've just read your article on Komi-san. This is actually something I noticed when watching that show! Many people in my family have conditions similar to that, though they also have diabete and liver problems (which you mentioned). My hands too sweat a lot, but it only happens in the winter.

Anyway, looking forward to more biology and medical articles from you!

I am glad I was able to teach you something new. I've got another on head injuries in the pipeline.

Say, have you ever thought about gymnastic and acrobatic? We will soon get a show about gymnastic called Bakuten, which somehow made me recalled Kaleido Star years and years ago.

Not really as I do not know much about those sports, but there is always something, so I won't discount it. And I remember Kaleido Star it was a fun one for the most part and I did do 2 posts on it.

Now when having a discussion like this the level to which you take the science is important, so I will be holding the science to the level covered in your basic high school classes. This is two fold, one I think I can reach a larger audience this way. Second is that I don't teach the higher level stuff and my background is more limited in the area of physics and inorganic chemistry.

With that over with here you go.

Below is a rough draft on the Gundanium from Gundam fame
Titanium is already lighter but stronger than steel while also having a higher melting point: steel melts at 1370C while titanium melts at 1668C.

This is why titanium is used to build the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird which was invented by Clarence Johnson in 1964 and is the fastest jet powered plane in the world with a top speed of 3,540 km/h because at that speed, the ram air pressure and air friction generated by the supersonic aircraft would either crush the vehicle or vaporize it if it used only aluminum.

The Blackbird is so fast that turbines would not be strong enough to withstand the ram-air pressure at such speeds so it uses a ram air compressor to initially compress the air and slow it down to subsonic speeds before entering the converging duct to avoid damaging the turbines.

Titanium is also used to build spacecraft along with aluminum.

Trains and motor vehicles today are made of aluminum because it is 2 times stronger than steel but only 0.3333 of its weight.

The M-10000, invented by William Bushnell Stout in 1933, is the 1st high speed diesel bullet train and the 1st diesel train to be made entirely of aluminum and it has a top speed of 177 km/h.

The Dymaxion Car, invented by Buckminster Fuller in 1933, is the 1st car to be made entirely of aluminum and it has a top speed of 145 km/h and a fuel economy of 13km/l.

The Pennsylvania Railroad Class GG1, invented by Donald R. Dohner and Raymond Loewy in 1934, is the 1st high speed electric bullet train and the 1st electric train to be made entirely of aluminum and it has a top speed of 160 km/h while pulling 14 train cars. The freight version has a top speed of 145 km/h while also pulling 14 train cars.

Carbon fiber is now being used to make vehicles.

In 2005, Paul Priestman invents the double-deck passenger plane called the Airbus A380 for Airbus and 20% of the plane is made of carbon fiber while the rest of it is made of aluminum which gives it a top speed of 1099 km/h while carrying 800 passengers.

Below is an image of the Airbus A380:



In 2010, Joe Justice invents the 1st car made entirely of carbon fiber, including its engine, and it has a top speed of 240 km/h and a fuel economy of 49km/l.
