Israeli scientists have developed a method of searching for explosives, which can dramatically change the work of sappers, reports Rossiyskaya Gazeta with reference to the publication Nature Biothechnology.

Israeli scientists have deduced bacteria reacting to trinitrotoluene

Biologists at the Hebrew University in Israel have deduced bacteria that react to the presence in the environment of trinitrotoluene, a substance that is found in explosives in most mines.

“When detecting its traces, say, in the ground, bacteria begin to emit a fluorescent glow, which is remotely detected by a special optoelectronic system,” the publication says.

According to the authors, “to create unique bacteria, they used E. coli E. coli culture, in which they placed specially modified DNA”.

"When injected into the bacterial cell, the smallest quantities of volatile trinitrotoluene or its decay products, a protein emitting a fluorescent glow began to be synthesized in it," the newspaper writes.

It is reported that the tests were conducted on a specially created "minefield" of about 4-x square. meter There were buried "control plastic containers with earth and sand, as well as containers containing trinitrotoluene and a conventional anti-personnel mine without a fuse." Then the field was covered with special beads containing bacteria-sensors, and scanned the area from a distance of 200 m.

According to scientists, “the bacteria confidently reacted to the explosives, which lay in the ground 3-5 months before the start of the experiment, but on the mine, buried 5 days ago, the sappers did not react.” Most likely, this is due to the fact that it takes time for the volatile pairs of trinitrotoluene to enter the environment through a plastic shell.

It is noted that the development of Israeli scientists can significantly change the situation with mine clearance and make sappers work safer.

          British scientists have discovered the existence of British scientists.
          As it turned out, if one or another scientist declares that he is setting a “high-profile” task, his chances of getting a grant are much higher. In practice, this leads to the fact that often experts promise to come to some sensational conclusions, but in practice they are by no means the largest study and, even less pleasantly, they often “tailor the task to an answer” in an attempt to meet expectations. As a result, both the significance and reliability of the results leave much to be desired. The value for science of most of these works is zero, experts say.

          P.S. And mine fields should be protected from cunning bacteria like this: sprinkle these engineering systems as ash with explosive powder and let it be one big flare for enemy sappers. Pour this "dust" wherever possible, let the enemy sensors and bacteria go crazy.

      So they will never allow him to be built on their territory.
      Meanwhile, this is what is located in the capital of Russia. Viktor Vekselberg oversees this business with Berl Lazar on shares. Those two Lubavitcher Hasidim, who I forgot, remember like-minded Igor Kolomoisky. I focus on the fourth word of this construction.

      In Israel, the Russian language is studied in schools, has the status of a second foreign language, there are newspapers, magazines and television programs in Russian.

        Thank you. I laughed heartily. The second language is English, the third is Arabic. Only "Ivashki" (immigrants from the ex-USSR) cultivate the Russian language in their families, moreover, their children born already on the land of their ancestors consider it an absolute waste of time to learn Russian. I suggested a couple of years ago to local representatives of well-known nationality that they would do anything to make Russian the fourth official language, they said that it makes no sense. So, the Russian language is not in favor there.

    Will these bacteria probably be used in ecologically clean areas that are not contaminated with traces of earlier explosions? What prevents sappers before setting mines to blow up some TNT in the air? I immediately remember the story (I don’t know whether the bike is or not) about the use by the Americans of sniper detection devices when, in response, the homeless militants hung up roadside bushes with door eyes)).

    EMNIP, Fedorov’s “Underground regional committee acts” described one of the methods of counteracting such TNT determinants. In those days, however, the problem of the partisans was not bacteria, but sapper dogs that sniffed explosives. In response, the partisans began to sow the area with small pieces of tol when entering the railway, thus blocking the smell of the main charge.

    After reading something, the bacteria from the early Strugatsky were remembered:
    Yurkovsky mutters:
    “Listen, Alexey ... In case I still don’t get there ... About the mystery of Tahmasib, about the Red Ring ... I think ... I'm sure ... These are bacteria.” Colonies of bacteria. But not our bacteria. Another life ... non-protein life. They live due to radiation. Absorb radioactive radiation and live off their energy ... Do you hear, Bulls?
    Yes, yes, he hears. "Bacteria and radiation ..." But this is of no use. Need water, not bacteria.
    “They gather around the place where the atomic explosion is to occur,” Yurkovsky continues. “Going in a ring ... Red ring ... and waiting.” The "boy" hit such a place. And underneath is an explosion. Underground atomic explosion. But they sense where the explosion should be, they gather and wait ... The decay products are very active ... they are tasty ... Do you hear? I'm pretty sure ...
    Yes, Bykov hears. He walks along a rocky ridge and hears everything. But first you need water. And where, finally, is the gorge? It must be somewhere here ... Water ...
    - Tell everyone to fear the Red Ring. Where is the Red Ring, there is an underground explosion. Will you pass? Do you hear

    Pancake, what I don’t know whether to laugh or spit from such news. You can imagine; goes a Jew and sows the field
    ..... with special beads containing the bacteria-sensors, and they scanned the area from a distance of 200 m.
    And
    “The bacteria confidently reacted to the explosives that lay in the ground 3-5 months before the start of the experiment, but the sappers didn’t react to the mine buried 5 days ago”

    Thus, the search for explosives can be carried out in a calm environment, it’s obviously not possible to do combat, and did they take weather conditions into account? lol
