X makes nine: a distant ice giant in the solar system.

Ever since Pluto lost its status as one of the main planets of our solar system and was demoted to just another frozen denizen of the Kuiper belt, we have had to make do with eight, albeit in a pleasing symmetry, with four rocky ones this side of the asteroid belt and four giants on the far side. Now it looks like number nine is back on the slate: the existence of a large planet, about ten times as massive as Earth and hundreds of times more distant from the Sun than Earth itself, has been postulated to exp...

Ethylene control technologies in extending post-harvest shelf life of climacteric fruit.

Fresh fruit is important for a healthy diet. However, due to their seasonal production, regional specific cultivation and perishable nature, it is essential to develop preservation technologies to extend the post-harvest shelf life of fresh fruits. Climacteric fruit adopt spoilage because of ethylene, a key hormone associated with the ripening process. Therefore, controlling ethylene activity by following safe and effective approaches is a key to extend the post-harvest shelf life of fruit. In this review, ...
