The Triangle. A small northern constellation between → Andromeda and → Aries, at 2h right ascension, 32° north declination. Its three brightest stars, of magnitudes 3.0, 3.4, and 4.0, form a small, elongated isosceles triangle. One of the constellations listed by Ptolemy. The famous → spiral galaxy → M33 lies in Triangulum. Abbreviation: Tri; genitive: Trianguli.
Fr.: Triangle austral
The Southern Triangle. A small constellation in the southern hemisphere, at 16h right ascension, 65° south declination, introduced by Johann Bayer (1603). Abbreviation: TrA; genitive: Trianguli Australe
→ traingle; Australe "southern," from auster "south wind," metaphorically extended to "south."
Triangulum galaxy (M33)
kahkešân-e sebar (#)
Fr.: galaxie du Triangle
One of the prominent members of the → Local Group situated in the constellation → Triangulum. M33 is a type Sc → spiral galaxy seen nearly → face-on. It lies 2.8 million → light-years away and its diameter is 52,000 light-years. Also know as NGC 598.
triatomic hydrogen molecular ion
yon-e molekuli-ye se-atomi-ye hidrožen
Fr.: ion moléculaire d'hydrogène triatomique, H3+
The hydrogen molecule composed of three atoms in which one of the atoms is ionized. The molecular ion H3+ plays a key role in the chemistry of gaseous → interstellar medium. It reacts efficiently with almost any neutral atom or molecule to initiate a network of ion-neutral reactions. It is responsible for producing molecules such as OH, CO, and H2O. The first detection of H3+ in the interstellar medium, via two closely spaced absorption lines (doublet) near 3.668 μm, were reported in two dense → molecular cloud cores along the lines of sight to the embedded → young stellar objects W33A and GL2136 (Geballe & Oka 1996). Since then H3+ has been detected in several molecular clouds. It is believed that H3+ forms via → cosmic ray → ionization of H2 producing H2+, which quickly reacts to another H2 molecule to form H3+ ( H2 + CR → H2+ and H2+ + H2→ H3+ + H + 1.7 eV).
The property of some crystals of exhibiting three different colors when viewed from three different directions under white lights. → dichroism.
From Gk. tri- "three" + chroic, from chroma "color" + -ism.
Sefâmi, from se, → three, + fâm "color," + -i noun suffix.
Fr.: nébuleuse Trifide
A large luminous H II hydrogen in the constellation → Sagittarius. Conspicuous dust lanes radiating from the center appear to divide the nebula in three lobes. It is a combined emission and reflection nebula, extending for nearly 30' on the sky. Also known as M20, NGC 6514.
Miq→ nebula; sepâré "split in three," from sé, → three, + pâré "piece, part, portion, fragment;" Mid.Pers. pârag "piece, part, portion; gift, offering, bribe;" Av. pāra- "debt," from par- "to remunerate, equalize; to condemn;" PIE *per- "to sell, hand over, distribute; to assigne;" cf. L. pars "part, piece, side, share," portio "share, portion;" Gk. peprotai "it has been granted;" Skt. purti- "reward;" Hitt. pars-, parsiya- "to break, crumble."

Fr.: 1) déclancheur; 2) déclancher
1a) (n.) Anything, as an act or event, that serves as a stimulus and initiates or precipitates
a reaction or series of reactions.
Earlier tricker, from Du. trekker "trigger," from trekken "to pull," from M.Du. trecken (cf. M.L.G. trecken, O.H.G. trechan "to draw").
1) Mâšé "a trigger, tongs, pincers," of unknown origin.
Fr.: circuit déclancheur
A circuit in which a specific predetermined action is initiated by an input pulse.

From L. tri-, a combining form meaning → three + nitro- a combining form used in the names of chemical compounds in which the nitro group is present.
Fr.: trinitrotoluène (TNT)
A yellow, solid chemical compound, that does not occur naturally in the environment. More specifically, 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (C6H2(NO2)3CH3), is commonly known as TNT. It is an explosive extensively used in munitions and for demolitions.
