Nuclear-powered spacecraft, artwork Featured 17 Jan 2006 Print

Nuclear-powered spacecraft, artwork

Nuclear-powered spacecraft at Ganymede, computer artwork. Ganymede is one of the moons of Jupiter. The spacecraft is powered by nuclear fusion, the same process that takes place in the Sun. This is a cleaner source of energy than nuclear fission, though it is thought it will take many years to develop controlled nuclear fusion reactors. Travel to the outer planets, which involves much greater distances and travel times than for travel to the inner planets and the Moon, will probably require nuclear fusion. The crew's living quarters are at right, away from the nuclear propulsion systems at left. This minimises the exposure of the crew to dangerous radiation from the nuclear reactor

Amoxicillin antibiotic drug molecule Featured 17 Jan 2006 Print

Amoxicillin antibiotic drug molecule

Amoxicillin antibiotic drug, molecular model. This is a moderate-spectrum beta-lactam antibiotic. These drugs work by inhibiting the synthesis of bacterial cell walls, mainly in Gram-positive bacteria. Vulnerable bacteria include Streptococcus and Staphylococcus, and some Gram- negative bacteria such as Neisseria and Escherichia coli. Some strains of previously- susceptible bacteria have developed resistance to amoxicillin, as they produce the enzyme beta- lactamase, which destroys the drug. Hence, it is usually taken with clavulanic acid, which blocks this enzyme, a preparation called co-amoxiclav. Atoms are colour-coded: carbon (cyan), nitrogen (dark blue), oxygen (red), sulphur (yellow) and hydrogen (white)
