Apple PATENTS FORCE-SENSITIVE INPUT STRUCTURE FOR ELECTRONIC DEVICES
Apple’s MacBook team has announced the development of a force-sensitive input structure for electronic devices, recently approved by the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
GOOGLE TO RESTRICT WHICH APPS CAN VIEW ALREADY INSTALLED APPLICATIONS ON YOUR DEVICE
Google has announced an update to its Developer Program Policy that will help to prevent applications from viewing which other apps are installed on an Android device. The company states that they consider installed apps to be private user information and therefore, aim to protect Android users by keeping this data secure.
ROBOT ARTIST SELLS ART FOR $688,888, NOW EYEING MUSIC CAREER
Sophia is a robot of many talents—she speaks, jokes, sings and even makes art. In March, she caused a stir in the art world when a digital work she created as part of a collaboration was sold at an auction for $688,888 in the form of a non-fungible token (NFT).
🗞 PHYSICS NEWS⚙♨:
UNDER THE RADAR: SEARCHING FOR STEALTHY SUPERSYMMETRY
The standard model of particle physics encapsulates our current knowledge of elementary particles and their interactions. The standard model is not complete; for example, it does not describe observations such as gravity, has no prediction for dark matter, which makes up most of the matter in the universe, or that neutrinos have mass.
RESEARCHERS EXTEND THE LIFE OF A DIPOLAR MOLECULE
In 2018, Kang-Kuen Ni and her lab earned the cover of Science with an impressive feat: They took two individual atoms, a sodium and a cesium, and forged them into a single dipolar molecule, sodium cesium.
STUDY SHOWS MASKS, VENTILATION STOP COVID SPREAD BETTER THAN SOCIAL DISTANCING
A new study from the University of Central Florida suggests that masks and a good ventilation system are more important than social distancing for reducing the airborne spread of COVID-19 in classrooms.
🗞 EARTH NEWS🌏:
LIGHTNING STRIKES WILL MORE THAN DOUBLE IN ARCTIC AS CLIMATE WARMS
In 2019, the National Weather Service in Alaska reported spotting the first-known lightning strikes within 300 miles of the North Pole. Lightning strikes are almost unheard of above the Arctic Circle, but scientists led by researchers at the University of California, Irvine have published new research in the journal Nature Climate Change detailing how Arctic lightning strikes stand to increase by about 100 percent over northern lands by the end of the century as the climate continues warming.
A SUN REFLECTOR FOR EARTH?
Scientists explore the potential risks and benefits
Nine of the hottest years in human history have occurred in the last decade. Without a major shift in this climate trajectory, the future of life on Earth is in question. Should humans, whose fossil-fueled society is driving climate change, use technology to put the brakes on global warming?
INCREASED WINTER SNOWMELT THREATENS WESTERN WATER RESOURCES
More snow is melting during winter across the West, a concerning trend that could impact everything from ski conditions to fire danger and agriculture, according to a new University of Colorado Boulder analysis of 40 years of data.
🗞 ASTRONOMY & SPACE NEWS🌪🎇:
PIECE OF SpaceX ROCKET DEBRIS LANDS AT WASHINGTON STATE FARM
A piece of burning rocket debris seen streaking across the Pacific Northwest sky last week crashed on a farm in eastern Washington state, authorities said.
NASA’S INGENUITY HELICOPTER DROPPED ON MARS’ SURFACE AHEAD OF FLIGHT
NASA’s Ingenuity mini-helicopter has been dropped on the surface of Mars in preparation for its first flight, the US space agency said.
NEW STUDY TIES SOLAR VARIABILITY TO THE ONSET OF DECADAL LA NINA EVENTS
A new study shows a correlation between the end of solar cycles and a switch from El Nino to La Nina conditions in the Pacific Ocean, suggesting that solar variability can drive seasonal weather variability on Earth.
🗞 NANOTECHNOLOGY NEWS⛄☃:
ULTRASHORT PEPTIDES GO A LONG WAY FOR TISSUE ENGINEERING
A new automated process prints a peptide-based hydrogel scaffold containing uniformly distributed cells. The scaffolds hold their shapes well and successfully facilitate cell growth that lasts for weeks.
ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE: SUBSTRATE EFFECTS ON 2D LAYERS
Atomically thin layers are of great technological interest because of potentially useful electronic properties that emerge as the layer thickness approaches the 2D limit. Such materials tend to form weak bonds outside the layer and are thus generally assumed to be unaffected by substrates that provide physical support.
STREAMLINING THE PROCESS OF MATERIALS DISCOVERY
Developing new materials and novel processes has continued to change the world. The M3I3 Initiative at KAIST has led to new insights into advancing materials development by implementing breakthroughs in materials imaging that have created a paradigm shift in the discovery of materials. The Initiative features the multiscale modeling and imaging of structure and property relationships and materials hierarchies combined with the latest material-processing data.
