The Danger of Air Pollution Gaining Access to the Brain

The reason pollution has a metallic taste and scent and that it burns the eyes when exposed to it is because the particles of air pollution are tiny enough that they can travel through nerve cells, and gain direct entry to the brain, where the olfactory bulbar meets the frontal cortex, as there is no blood-brain barrier at this point. The body protects itself through the blood-brain barrier, which means that particles within the bloodstream, cannot get directly into the brain. This system has a slight flaw however as the nose acts as a direct conduit for incredibly tiny particles to bypass this security mechanism

Methanol Energy Production

Methanol is the simplest alcohol to make and is the most probable choice fuel for future Mars missions. Ethanol only requires water and carbon. Methanol is colloquially referred to as “wood alcohol” and/or “natural gas”. Professional racing car drivers prefer methanol as a fuel source due to the fact that it’s much less likely to catch fire after a crash. Methanol burns incredibly clean in comparison to gasoline and methanol costs 33% of what gasoline costs to manufacture and distribute

Photo Recognition of Plants

Every plant on Earth recognizes that a change in light lasting longer than 4 minutes is probably not just a flicker of the light source (e.g. fluctuations due to cloud cover) and therefore increases its photosynthesis efficiency. If the plant is incorrect in its analysis, it runs the risk of burning to death by increasing its photosynthesis efficiency as the sun would consequently provide too much light. All plants must determine between what is the end of the day and what is simply a fluctuation of light due to environmental changes like animals, clouds, and other plants which are competing for light
