A new interstellar molecule, methylcyanoacetylene (CH3C3N), has been detected in the molecular cloud TMC-1. The J = 8 --> 7, J = 7 --> 6, J = 6 --> 5, and J = 5 --> 4 transitions have been observed. For the first three of these, both the K = 0 and K = 1 components are present, while for J = 5 --> 4, only the K = 0 line has been detected. The observed(More)
The first observations of the 2(20)-2(11) transition of cyclopropenylidene (C3H2) at 21.6 GHz are described. In all cases where it has been detected, the line appears in absorption, showing that this transition is "refrigerated" (i.e., Tex < 2.7 K) in cold dust clouds. These results are compared with those for the 1(10)-1(01) transition of C3H2, and the(More)
iii Forward To be added iv Executive Summary The Ambulance Patient Compartment Human Factors Design Guidebook, hereafter referred to as the Guidebook, is the result of a multiyear effort on the part of the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) First Responder Group (FRG) to provide tools and guidance to the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) community that(More)
We have detected the 1(10)-1(01) transition of C3HD at 19.418 GHz at twelve positions in cold, dark clouds and resolved the D hyperfine components in two sources (L1498 and TMC-1C) well enough to derive values for the D quadrupole coupling constants. Simultaneous observations of C3H2 in each source yield relative integrated line intensities in the range(More)
The last year or so has seen the identification of several new interstellar molecules, including C2S, C3S, C5H, C6H, and (probably) HC2CHO in the cold, dark cloud TMC-1; and the discovery of the first interstellar phosphorous-containing molecule, PN, in the Orion "plateau" source. Further interesting results include the observations of 13C3H2 and C3HD, and(More)
Foreword Ambulance crashes are one of many hazards faced by emergency medical services providers (EMSP). Data from the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration indicates EMSP experience a fatality rate three times the average national occupational injury rate and cite ambulance crashes and related vehicle accidents as one of the threats facing(More)
