Kilogram redefinition Roadmap

Industry News - 03/25/2015

Previously it was stated that the kilogram was the ONLY SI unit represented by a physical international prototype which is housed in France. However, the story of the kilogram is being rewritten. Although the international prototype has served international metrology for over a century it will in all likelihood  be superseded and the roadmap is in place. The standard iridium-platinum metre prototype has been superseded by a more precise definition in terms of the distance travelled at the speed of light for a specific fraction of a second. Similarly proposals have been made to define the kilogram in terms of either the Planck or Avagadro constants. Nevertheless, for the time being, the definition of the kilogram remains “A unit of mass equal to the mass of the international prototype of the kilogram”.

The gram (which is 1/1000th kilogram) was originally defined in 1795 as the mass of one cubic centimeter of water at the melting point of water, making the kilogram equal to the mass of one liter of water. The original prototype kilogram, was manufactured in 1799 and from which the IPK is derived, had a mass equal to the mass of 1.000025 liters of water at 4 °C.

Giant Sting-ray could be a Record Breaker !

Industry News - 03/13/2015

There’s something massive in the water.

Animal expert Jeff Corwin found what might be the world’s biggest stingray in Thailand’s Mae Klong River.

The 14-foot long and 8-foot wide freshwater ray could be the largest freshwater fish ever captured, Corwin said on Facebook.

The giant creature weighs an estimated 700 to 800 pounds, National Geographic reported. That means it would beat out the current record, a Mekong giant catfish that weighs 660 pounds and also live in Thailand.

The catch was filmed for an episode of Corwin’s “Ocean Mysteries.” The nature team measured and microchipped the ray for tracking, and then they released it back into the river.
