DATA TRANSFER SYSTEM CONNECTS SILICON CHIPS WITH A HAIR’S-WIDTH CABLE
Researchers have developed a data transfer system that can transmit information 10 times faster than a USB. The new link pairs high-frequency silicon chips with a polymer cable as thin a strand of hair. The system may one day boost energy efficiency in data centers and lighten the loads of electronics-rich spacecraft.
EXPERTS CALL FOR HOME BATTERY STORAGE TO PROTECT VULNERABLE DURING OUTAGES
Extreme weather driven by climate change is making power outages more commonplace even as the need for electricity-dependent home health equipment grows. In this context, battery storage can help protect medically vulnerable households, according to researchers at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health. The article is published in the journal Futures.
PRIVACY ISSUES AND SECURITY RISKS IN ALEXA SKILLS
With the voice commands ‘Alexa Skills,’ users can load numerous extra functions onto their Amazon voice assistant. However, these Skills can often have security gaps and data protection problems, as a team of researchers from the Horst Görtz Institute for IT Security at Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) and North Carolina State University discovered, together with a former Ph.D. student who started to work for Google during the project. They will present their work at the Network and Distributed System Security Symposium (NDSS) conference on 24 February 2021.
🗞 PHYSICS NEWS⚙♨:
NATURE’S FUNHOUSE MIRROR: UNDERSTANDING ASYMMETRY IN THE PROTON
Asymmetry in the proton confounds physicists, but a new discovery may bring back old theories to explain it.
MACHINE LEARNING AIDS IN SIMULATING DYNAMICS OF INTERACTING ATOMS
A revolutionary machine-learning (ML) approach to simulate the motions of atoms in materials such as aluminum is described in this week’s Nature Communications journal. This automated approach to “interatomic potential development” could transform the field of computational materials discovery.
RESEARCHERS CAPTURE HOW MATERIALS BREAK APART FOLLOWING AN EXTREME SHOCK
Understanding how materials deform and catastrophically fail when impacted by a powerful shock is crucial in a wide range of fields, including astrophysics, materials science and aerospace engineering. But until recently, the role of voids, or tiny pores, in such a rapid process could not be determined, requiring measurements to be taken at millionths of a billionth of a second.
🗞 EARTH NEWS🌎:
ASTEROID DUST FOUND IN CRATER CLOSES CASE OF DINOSAUR EXTINCTION
Researchers believe they have closed the case of what killed the dinosaurs, definitively linking their extinction with an asteroid that slammed into Earth 66 million years ago by finding a key piece of evidence: asteroid dust inside the impact crater.
INDIAN AGRICULTURE: GROUNDWATER DEPLETION COULD REDUCE WINTER CROPPED ACREAGE SIGNIFICANTLY IN YEARS
India is the world’s second-largest producer of wheat and rice and is home to more than 600 million farmers.
SCIENTISTS BEGIN BUILDING HIGHLY ACCURATE DIGITAL TWIN OF OUR PLANET
A digital twin of our planet is to simulate the Earth system in future. It is intended to support policy-makers in taking appropriate measures to better prepare for extreme events. A new strategy paper by European scientists and ETH Zurich computer scientists shows how this can be achieved.
🗞 ASTRONOMY & SPACE NEWS🌪🎇:
RESEARCHERS DETECT COLD GAS PIPELINES FEEDING EARLY, MASSIVE GALAXIES
To come into being, galaxies need a steady diet of cold gases to undergo gravitational collapse. The larger the galaxy, the more cold gas it needs to coalesce and to grow.
ASTRONOMERS DETECT NEW SUPER-EARTH EXOPLANET ORBITING NEARBY STAR
Using the radial velocity (RV) technique, astronomers have discovered a new super-Earth alien world as part of the HADES and CARMENES programs. The newfound exoplanet, designated GJ 740 b, orbits a bright star some 36 light-years away and is at least three times more massive than the Earth. The finding is reported in a paper published February 18 on the arXiv pre-print server.
NEW STUDY SUGGESTS SUPERMASSIVE BLACK HOLES COULD FORM FROM DARK MATTER
A new theoretical study has proposed a novel mechanism for the creation of supermassive black holes from dark matter. The international team find that rather than the conventional formation scenarios involving ‘normal’ matter, supermassive black holes could instead form directly from dark matter in high density regions in the centers of galaxies. The result has key implications for cosmology in the early Universe, and is published in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.
🗞 NANOTECHNOLOGY NEWS⛄☃:
BUCKYBALLS ON DNA FOR HARVESTING LIGHT
Organic molecules that capture photons and convert these into electricity have important applications for producing green energy. Light-harvesting complexes need two semiconductors, an electron donor and an acceptor. How well they work is measured by their quantum efficiency, the rate by which photons are converted into electron-hole pairs.
MEASURING CARBON NANOTUBES TAKEN UP BY PLANTS
Carbon nanotubes are tiny. They can be a hundred thousand times smaller than the width of a human hair. But they have huge potential.
JUMPING FROST CRYSTALS: LAB WORKS TOWARD ELECTROSTATIC DE-ICING
If you have ever gotten up on a winter morning and thrown yourself into the arduous task of scraping frost from a windshield, a Virginia Tech lab is engaging science [IS1] that could make your life much easier. In research funded by the National Science Foundation, Associate Professor Jonathan Borekyo has led a team in developing a potential solution for frost removal by way of electrostatics.
