Strike-a-Light River

The Strike-a-Light River, a perennial stream, part of the Murrumbidgee catchment within the Murray–Darling basin, is located in the Snowy Monaro Regional Council area of New South Wales, Australia. The river rises on the western slopes of the Great Dividing Range, near Jerangle, flows north north-west, north-west, south-west and south, joined by three minor tributaries, before reaching its confluence with the Bredbo River, east of Bredbo. Strike-a-Light River flows through the Strike-a-Light Nature Reserve; the Strike-a-Light River is inhabited by a number of amphibian species Bibron's toadlet, common eastern froglet, spotted grass frog and Verreaux's tree frog. Vegetation communities through which the river passes include Scribbly Gum/Apple Box - Dry Shrub Forest, Ribbon Gum - Valley Forest as well as cleared areas of natural vegetation.

Cyclic ozone

Cyclic ozone is a theoretically predicted form of ozone. Like ordinary ozone, it would have three oxygen atoms, it would differ from ordinary ozone in. In ordinary ozone, the atoms are arranged in a bent line; some of properties of cyclic ozone have been predicted theoretically. It should have more energy than ordinary ozone. There is evidence that tiny quantities of cyclic ozone exist at the surface of magnesium oxide crystals in air. Cyclic ozone has not been made in bulk, although at least one researcher has attempted to do so using lasers. Another possibility to stabilize this form of oxygen is to produce it inside confined spaces, e.g. fullerene. It has been speculated that, if cyclic ozone could be made in bulk, if it proved to have good stability properties, it could be added to liquid oxygen to improve the specific impulse of rocket fuel; the possibility of cyclic ozone is confirmed within diverse theoretical approaches.
