Canada's Plastic Money Durable, Laundry-Friendly And Not New

Canada first introduced plastic currency or polymer bank notes, as they are technically known, in the spring of 2012 by circulating $100 and $50 dollar notes and the rest of the money will be in circulation and by the end of 2013. The polymer bank notes are more durable than paper money. The Bank of Canada expects these bills to last 2.5 times longer than the paper ones. They're also harder to fake than paper money. Some of the security features built into the notes include raised ink, hidden numbers and metallic images in see-through windows. The bills feel smooth, slightly waxy and laundry-friendly. They don't crumple easily, but they do crease when you try, and they don't seem to tear in half. The notes are necessary to fight counterfeiting. The number of counterfeit bills in circulation peaked in 2004, but has been steadily declining since. Polymer money is not new. First developed by the Reserve Bank of Australia, they have been in circulation there since 1988. Countries that have since switched completely to polymer banknotes include Brunei, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Romania and Vietnam. Canada is in the final phases of implementing polymer banknotes and will be paperless in November 2013.

Cassini detects plastic ingredient on Saturn moon

A NASA spacecraft has found the chemicals used to make plastic on a moon of Saturn. The Cassini spacecraft found small amounts of propylene in the atmosphere of Titan, Saturn's largest moon. It is the first time the chemical has been detected on another world. PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — You expect to find plastics in your lunch box, not on a moon of Saturn. But that's exactly where NASA found an ingredient of plastic — the first time the chemical has been detected on another world. The Cassini spacecraft found small amounts of propylene, a chemical used to make storage containers and other products, in the atmosphere of Saturn's largest moon Titan. Titan is among the few bodies in the solar system with a significant atmosphere made up of hydrocarbons. Cassini previously detected signs that propylene might be present in Titan's hazy atmosphere. But scientists weren't convinced until one of the spacecraft's instruments measured the heat coming from Saturn and its moons, and identified the chemical. The finding appear in the Astrophysical Journal Letters οn September 30, 2013. (Photo: NASA)
