THE MOON RISES BEHIND A GUARD TOWER ON THE JIN SHAN SECTION OF THE GREAT WALL

The moon rises behind an unrestored guard tower on the Jin Shan section of
the Great Wall on the outskirts of Beijing, August 12, 2003. China's first
regulation to protect the Great Wall came into effect on August 1, banning
tourists from exploring undeveloped sections of it. The ancient wall, which
was first built in the Qin dynasty (221-206 bc) and rebuilt in the Ming
dynasty (1368-1644), has come under threat from the large number of tourists
and hikers who visit it each year. Violators face fines of between 200 Yuan
($24) and 30,000 Yuan ($3,600). NO RIGHTS CLEARANCES OR PERMISSIONS ARE REQUIRED FOR THIS IMAGE REUTERS/Guang Niu

Micromechanical accelerometer Featured 12 Aug 2003 Image

Micromechanical accelerometer

Micromechanical accelerometer. This tiny acceleration sensor is used in automatic car stability control systems. These systems can sense lateral (sideways) acceleration and independently apply braking to each wheel. They can automatically prevent or arrest skidding where the car is in danger of spinning around. Some systems can also improve the stability of the car when cornering or making sudden manoeuvres
