🗞 TECHNOLOGY NEWS💻🔧🖥:
HAPPY NEW MONTH OF CREATIVITIES.
SHAB TECHNOLOGY PLANET wishes all.
A POCKET COOLING DEVICE BASED ON A CASCADE MECHANISM
Recent technological advances have enabled the development of increasingly compact and flexible devices. This includes wearable or portable technology, such as smart watches, earphones or other smart accessories, which can assist human users in a variety of ways.
GOOGLE’S AI TAPS INTO THE MINDS OF THE GREAT POETS
“I need about one hundred fifty drafts of a poem to get it right, and fifty more to make it sound spontaneous.” So said the 1966 U.S. Poet Laureate James Dickey.
SCIENTISTS INVENT ULTRAFAST WAY TO MANUFACTURE PEROVSKITE SOLAR MODULES
Most solar cells today are made with refined silicon that turns sunlight into clean electricity. Unfortunately, the process of refining silicon is far from clean, requiring vast amounts of energy from carbon-emitting power plants.
TESLA’S STOCK MARKET VALUE ACCELERATES PAST $500 BILLION
Tesla’s market value soared to more than $500 billion Tuesday ahead of its listing on the S&P 500, with its stock finishing up 6.4 percent or by nearly $32 billion in 24 hours.
🗞 PHYSICS NEWS⚙♨:
NEUTRINOS YIELD FIRST EXPERIMENTAL EVIDENCE OF CATALYZED FUSION DOMINANT IN MANY STARS
An international team of about 100 scientists of the Borexino Collaboration, including particle physicist Andrea Pocar at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, report in Nature this week detection of neutrinos from the sun, directly revealing for the first time that the carbon-nitrogen-oxygen (CNO) fusion-cycle is at work in our sun.
A HINT OF NEW PHYSICS IN POLARIZED RADIATION FROM THE EARLY UNIVERSE
Using Planck data from the cosmic microwave background radiation, an international team of researchers has observed a hint of new physics. The team developed a new method to measure the polarization angle of the ancient light by calibrating it with dust emission from our own Milky Way. While the signal is not detected with enough precision to draw definite conclusions, it may suggest that dark matter or dark energy causes a violation of the so-called “parity symmetry.”
MINIMAL WASTE PRODUCTION IS A FUNDAMENTAL LAW FOR ANIMAL LOCOMOTION
Is there a unifying principle underpinning animal locomotion in its rich diversity? A thermodynamic analysis performed by a Skoltech professor and his French collaborators at Université Paris Diderot, Université Paris Saclay, and the Muséum national d’Histoire Naturelle, shows why and how waste minimization prevails on efficiency or power maximization when it comes to free locomotion irrespective of the available mode and gaits. The research is published in the Physical Review Letters.
🗞 EARTH NEWS🌏:
ICE SHEETS ON THE MOVE: EVIDENCE OF THE INTERCONNECTEDNESS OF GLOBAL CLIMATE
To see how deeply interconnected the planet truly is look no further than the massive ice sheets on the Northern Hemisphere and South Pole.
OFFSHORE SUBMARINE FRESHWATER DISCOVERY RAISES HOPES FOR ISLANDS WORLDWIDE
Twice as much freshwater is stored offshore of Hawai’i Island than was previously thought, according to a University of Hawai’i study with important implications for volcanic islands around the world. An extensive reservoir of freshwater within the submarine southern flank of the Hualālai aquifer has been mapped by UH researchers with the Hawai’i EPSCoR ‘Ike Wai project. The groundbreaking findings, published in Science Advances, reveal a novel way in which substantial volumes of freshwater are transported from onshore to offshore submarine aquifers along the coast of Hawai’i Island.
INSIDE THE BLACK BOX OF IRON OXIDE FORMATION
From the splendorous red hues in the Grand Canyon to the mundane rust attacking a neglected bicycle, iron hydroxides are all around us. As a matter of fact, they are just as common as quartz, which is the most widely distributed mineral on the planet.
🗞 ASTRONOMY & SPACE NEWS🌪🎇:
FRUIT FLIES REVEAL NEW INSIGHTS INTO SPACE TRAVEL’S EFFECT ON THE HEART
Scientists at Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute have shown that fruit flies that spent several weeks on the International Space Station (ISS)—about half of their lives—experienced profound structural and biochemical changes to their hearts. The study, published today in Cell Reports, suggests that astronauts who spend a lengthy amount of time in space—which would be required for formation of a moon colony or travel to distant Mars—could suffer similar effects and may benefit from protective measures to keep their hearts healthy. The research also revealed new insights that could one day help people on Earth who are on long-term bed rest or living with heart disease.
RESEARCH PROVIDES NEW INSIGHTS ON HEALTH EFFECTS OF LONG-DURATION SPACE FLIGHT
The historic NASA Twins Study investigated identical twin astronauts Scott and Mark Kelly and provided new information on the health effects of spending time in space.
SPACE WORMS EXPERIMENT REVEALS GRAVITY AFFECTS GENES
Living at low gravity affects cells at the genetic level, according to a study of worms in space.
🗞 NANOTECHNOLOGY NEWS⛄☃:
TUNABLE COATING ALLOWS HITCH-HIKING NANOPARTICLES TO SLIP PAST THE IMMUNE SYSTEM TO THEIR TARGET
Nanoparticles are promising drug delivery tools, offering the ability to administer drugs directly to a specific part of the body and avoid the awful side effects so often seen with chemotherapeutics.
RESEARCHERS CREATE NANOSCALE SLALOM COURSE FOR ELECTRONS
A research team led by professors from the Department of Physics and Astronomy have created a serpentine path for electrons, imbuing them with new properties that could be useful in future quantum devices.
QUANTUM NANODIAMONDS MAY HELP DETECT DISEASE EARLIER
The quantum sensing abilities of nanodiamonds can be used to improve the sensitivity of paper-based diagnostic tests, potentially allowing for earlier detection of diseases such as HIV, according to a study led by UCL researchers in the i-sense McKendry group.
