AN OPEN-SOURCE MACHINE LEARNING FRAMEWORK TO CARRY OUT SYSTEMATIC REVIEWS
When scientists carry out research on a given topic, they often start by reviewing previous study findings. Conducting systematic literature reviews or meta-analyses can be very challenging and time consuming, as there are often huge amounts of research focusing on different topics, which may not always be relevant to a researcher’s work.
RESEARCHERS INTRODUCE A NEW GENERATION OF TINY, AGILE DRONES
If you’ve ever swatted a mosquito away from your face, only to have it return again (and again and again), you know that insects can be remarkably acrobatic and resilient in flight. Those traits help them navigate the aerial world, with all of its wind gusts, obstacles, and general uncertainty. Such traits are also hard to build into flying robots, but MIT Assistant Professor Kevin Yufeng Chen has built a system that approaches insects’ agility.
ADAPTING TO HYBRID REMOTE-OFFICE WORK WITH GOOGLE WORKSPACE
In preparation for a post-pandemic reality, Google has upgraded its platform Google Workspace tools to better serve a remote working environment.
🗞 PHYSICS NEWS⚙♨:
THEORETICAL INTERPRETATIONS OF THE PULSAR TIMING DATA RECENTLY RELEASED BY NANOGrav
The North American Nanohertz Observatory for Gravitational Waves (NANOGrav) is a gravitational-wave detector that monitors areas in the vicinity of Earth using a network of pulsars (i.e., clock-like stars). At the end of 2020, the NANOGrav collaboration gathered evidence of fluctuations in the timing data of 45 pulsars, which could be compatible with a stochastic gravitational wave background (SGWB) signal at nanohertz frequencies.
HOW DOES PLASTIC DEBRIS MAKE ITS WAY INTO OCEAN GARBAGE PATCHES?
Tons of plastic debris get released into the ocean every day, and most of it accumulates within the middle of garbage patches, which tend to float on the oceans’ surface in the center of each of their regions. The most infamous one, known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, is in the North Pacific Ocean.
COMPLEX FLUID DYNAMICS MAY EXPLAIN HYDROPLANING
When a vehicle travels over a wet or flooded road, water builds up in front of the tire and generates a lift force. In a phenomenon known as hydroplaning, this force can become large enough to lift the vehicle off the ground.
🗞 EARTH NEWS🌏:
LEAD UP TO VOLCANIC ERUPTION IN GALAPAGOS CAPTURED IN RARE DETAIL
Hours before the 2018 eruption of Sierra Negra, the Galápagos Islands’ largest volcano, an earthquake rumbled and raised the ground more than 6 feet in an instant. The event, which triggered the eruption, was captured in rare detail by an international team of scientists, who said it offers new insights into one of the world’s most active volcanoes.
UNCOVERING PATTERNS IN CALIFORNIA’S BLAZING WILDFIRES
California’s 2020 wildfire season was unprecedented, the latest tragedy in a decades-long trend of increasing fire. Six of the 20 largest fires in state history burned during the calendar year. In August, a 14,000-strike “lightning siege” sparked 900 fires, and by the end of the year, roughly 17,200 square kilometers had burned across the state.
‘CANARY IN THE MINE’ WARNING FOLLOWING NEW DISCOVERY OF THE EFFECTS OF POLLUTANTS ON FERTILITY
New research has found that shrimp like creatures on the South Coast of England have 70 percent less sperm than less polluted locations elsewhere in the world. The research also discovered that individuals living in the survey area are six times less numerous per square meter than those living in cleaner waters.
🗞 ASTRONOMY & SPACE NEWS🌪🎇:
IMAGE: HUBBLE LOOKS AT A ‘BLACK EYE’ GALAXY
This image taken with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope features NGC 4826—a spiral galaxy located 17 million light-years away in the constellation of Coma Berenices (Berenice’s Hair). This galaxy is often referred to as the “Black Eye” or “Evil Eye” galaxy because of the dark band of dust that sweeps across one side of its bright nucleus.
NASA’s James Webb SPACE TELESCOPE COMPLETES FINAL FUNCTIONAL TESTS TO PREPARE FOR LAUNCH
February marked significant progress for NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope, which completed its final functional performance tests at Northrop Grumman in Redondo Beach, California. Testing teams successfully completed two important milestones that confirmed the observatory’s internal electronics are all functioning as intended, and that the spacecraft and its four scientific instruments can send and receive data properly through the same network they will use in space. These milestones move Webb closer to being ready to launch in October.
🗞 NANOTECHNOLOGY NEWS⛄☃:
RESEARCHER EXPLORES CONTACT FREEZING OF WATER AT THE NANOSCALE
At the nanoscale, water freezes in various ways, and not all of them are completely understood. Among other benefits, getting a better handle on these processes could mean big improvements in weather prediction.
BIG STEP TOWARD SMALL WIRES
Researchers from Fudan University in Shanghai, Japan’s National Institute for Materials Science and QUT’s Centre for Materials Science have published the study, “Stable single atomic silver wires assembling into a circuitry-connectable nanoarray,” in the journal Nature Communications.
SOFT AND COMFORTABLE E-TEXTILES THAT CAN BE USED TO MEASURE
Advances in wearable devices have enabled e-textiles, which fuse lightweight and comfortable textiles with smart electronics, and are garnering attention as the next-generation wearable technology. In particular, fiber electronic devices endowed with electrical properties, while retaining the specific characteristics of textiles, are key elements in manufacturing e-textiles.
