SEMICONDUCTOR SHORTAGE FORCES AUTOMOBILE PRODUCTION CUTS
A widening global shortage of semiconductors for auto parts is forcing major auto companies to halt or slow vehicle production just as they were recovering from pandemic-related factory shutdowns.
NEW ZEALAND CENTRAL BANK SAYS DATA SYSTEM HACKED
New Zealand’s central bank said Sunday that one of its data systems has been breached by an unidentified hacker who potentially accessed commercially and personally sensitive information.
AMAZON PUSHES PARLER OFFLINE AFTER CAPITOL ATTACK
Amazon will suspend Parler, the tech giant confirmed Saturday, sending the social media network offline after it was banned by Apple and Google for allowing “threats of violence” in the wake of a deadly riot at the US Capitol.
🗞 PHYSICS NEWS⚙♨:
MOVERS AND SHAKERS: NEW EVIDENCE FOR A UNIFYING THEORY OF GRANULAR MATERIALS
Understanding the dynamics of granular materials—such as sand flowing through an hourglass or salt pouring through a shaker—is a major unsolved problem in physics. A new paper describes a pattern for how record-sized “shaking” events affect the dynamics of a granular material as it moves from an excited to a relaxed state, adding to the evidence that a unifying theory underlies this behavior.
RESEARCHERS REALIZE EFFICIENT GENERATION OF HIGH-DIMENSIONAL QUANTUM TELEPORTATION
In a study published in Physical Review Letters, a team led by academician Guo Guangcan from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) has made progress in high dimensional quantum teleportation. The researchers demonstrated the teleportation of high-dimensional states in a three-dimensional six-photon system.
🗞 EARTH NEWS🌏:
DEADLY SNOWSTORMS CAUSE CHAOS ACROSS SPAIN
Snowstorms across much of Spain left three people dead and caused chaos across much of the country, trapping motorists and closing the capital’s air and rail links, with more falls to come Saturday.
2020 ANOTHER GRIM YEAR FOR BRAZILIAN AMAZON
Deforestation destroyed the equivalent of more than two football pitches each minute in the Brazilian Amazon in 2020, another devastating year for a resource seen as vital to curbing climate change, according to government data released Friday.
UNUSUAL SNOW KILLS 4, BRINGS MUCH OF SPAIN TO A STANDSTILL
A persistent blizzard blanketed large parts of Spain with an unusual amount of snow on Saturday, killing at least four people and leaving thousands trapped in cars or at train stations and airports that suspended all services.
🗞 ASTRONOMY & SPACE NEWS🌪🎇:
CHINESE RESEARCHERS OBTAIN THE MOST COMPLETE TYPE IA SUPERNOVA TEMPLATE
Type Ia supernovae, as cosmological distance indicators, have led to the discovery of the accelerating expansion of the Universe. Nevertheless, the nature of their progenitors and explosion mechanisms remain unsolved mysteries.
EVIDENCE OF WATER MOVEMENT FOUND IN METEORITES THAT ONLY RECENTLY FELL TO EARTH
A team of researchers affiliated with institutions in Australia, the U.S. and France has found evidence of relatively recent water movement in meteorites that only recently collided with the Earth. In their paper published in the journal Science, the group describes their study of carbonaceous chondrite (CC) meteorites that landed on the surface of the Earth within the past century and what they found.
CHANDRA OBSERVATIONS REVEAL EXTRAORDINARY MAGNETAR
In 2020, astronomers added a new member to an exclusive family of exotic objects with the discovery of a magnetar. New observations from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory help support the idea that it is also a pulsar, meaning it emits regular pulses of light.
🗞 NANOTECHNOLOGY NEWS⛄☃:
POWERFUL GRAPHENE HYBRID MATERIAL FOR HIGHLY EFFICIENT SUPERCAPACITORS
A team working with Roland Fischer, Professor of Inorganic and Metal-Organic Chemistry at the Technical University Munich (TUM) has developed a highly efficient supercapacitor. The basis of the energy storage device is a novel, powerful and also sustainable graphene hybrid material that has comparable performance data to currently utilized batteries.
