As we all know, the Sun is a giant ball of plasma, and like any plasma, it should support Alfven waves. Alfven waves are waves in a plasma where the ions move in response to tension from a magnetic field. Scientists predicted it 50 years ago until now we had not been able to see them. … Read more
Imagine if your home could be built in days. 3D printing has the potential to build your house from the ground up faster and for less money than a conventional home which means amongst other things, no more smoothing concrete by hand. The technology can physically produce a product of almost any shape based on … Read more
Many experts believe that even at the early stage of True AI, humans will be left behind at some specific task from AI. And I personally believe that AI will surpass us at some point, which is a threat to humanity. Neuralink is Elon Musk‘s answer to the threat artificial intelligence poses to the human … Read more
If I were to ask you whether it’s safe to drink snake venom, you would probably have a very firm answer right away. Either you would automatically say no because snakes wield deadly poisons. Or, if you are a science-savvy, you might unequivocally say yes, because snakes wield venoms, not poisons. Well, I am here … Read more
After several assists from InSight Lander’s arm, the mole appears to be underground. It’s been a real challenge troubleshooting for NASA & DLR from millions of miles away. We still need to see if the mole can dig on its own. There was no way to predict the duracrust and what it meant for the Mole. The future is still uncertain.
An analysis of new rock samples taken from NASA’s Curiosity rover uncovered evidence of clay minerals on Mars, suggesting the presence of water from a large, ancient lake. While the presence of clay supports the notion Mars may have once had water, it doesn’t conclusively prove the planet harboured conditions for life.
Ryugu’s interaction with the sun changes what we know about asteroid history. In February and July of 2019, the Hayabusa2 spacecraft briefly touched down on the surface of near-Earth asteroid Ryugu. The readings it took with various instruments at those times have given researchers insight into the physical and chemical properties of the 1-kilometer-wide asteroid. These findings could help expla
Quantum technology is currently one of the most active fields of research worldwide. It takes advantage of the special properties of quantum mechanical states of atoms, light, or nanostructures to develop, for example, novel sensors for medicine and navigation, networks for information processing and powerful simulators for materials sciences. Generating these quantum states normally requires a strong interaction between the
Researchers using a technique known as “lucky imaging” with the Gemini North telescope on Hawaii’s Maunakea have collected some of the highest resolution images of Jupiter ever obtained from the ground. These images are part of a multi-year joint observing program with the Hubble Space Telescope in support of NASA’s Juno mission. The Gemini images, when combined with the Hubble and Juno observations, reveal that lightning strikes, and some of the largest storm systems that create them, are formed in and around large convective cells over deep clouds of water ice and liquid. The new observations also confirm that dark spots in the famous Great Red Spot are actually gaps in the cloud cover and not due to cloud colour variations.
