Award: 

Benjamin Franklin Medal

  • Citation: For his pioneering interdisciplinary contributions in thermodynamics and convection heat transfer that have improved the performance of engineering systems, and for constructal theory, which predicts natural design and its evolution in engineering, scientific, and social systems.

Adrian Bejan had to find a way to cool small electronics without using traditional methods. Faced with this challenge, he discovered how to flow heat away from small electronics and follow natural pathways allowing it to escape on its own. This discovery not only keeps your laptop from overheating, it sparked an entire line of thought for Bejan about how natural systems branch and flow called “constructal theory.”

New evidences found on Neanderthals

New evidences were found in a cave in Spain to confirm what we already know: “Neanderthals and modern humans had the same cognitive abilities.”

World’s Oldest Cave Art Found—And Neanderthals Made It

There are also two short movies to watch, and several links for those interested in finding more about our “cousins”.

O frumoasă evocare a lui Dorin Tudoran, care a fost chiar mai apropiat de remarcabila personalitate care ne-a părăsit decît mine. Și grație Dnei Mihaela Grancea, probabil ultimul interviu acordat în această viață… Interviul este în cel mai recent număr al revistei Muzeului Bruckental, pe care îl puteți descărca gratuit… http://www.dorintudoran.com/absenta-dnei-petre-se-prelungeste/ BRUKENTHALIA_no._5
