THE SMART TIRE COMPANY ANNOUNCES MARS ROVER TIRES TO BECOME AVAILABLE FOR USE ON EARTH
The SMART Tire Company has revealed its first space-age tire, soon to be available to the general public. Already tested by NASA for use on Mars Rover missions, these tires come equipped with the company’s Shape Memory Alloy Radial Technology (SMART), made from the super-elastic material NiTinol+.
NEW ANALYSIS SHOWS POTENTIAL FOR ‘SOLAR CANALS’ IN CALIFORNIA
UC Santa Cruz researchers published a new study—in collaboration with UC Water and the Sierra Nevada Research Institute at UC Merced—that suggests covering California’s 6,350 km network of public water delivery canals with solar panels could be an economically feasible means of advancing both renewable energy and water conservation.
NEW ELECTROLYTE ADDITIVES FOR HIGH-ENERGY-DENSITY LITHIUM-ION BATTERIES
A joint research team, affiliated with UNIST has unveiled a novel electrolyte additive that could enable a long lifespan and fast chargeability of high-energy-density lithium-ion batteries (LIBs).

HOW DEEP IS A MIRROR? IT DEPENDS, BUT THE CALCULATIONS ARE MORE PRECISE NOW
Licht reflects from a mirror, but where exactly does this reflection happen? Well, it depends, Martin van Exter and Corné Koks discovered. Their precise calculations, published in Optics Express, are important for designing optical cavities for quantum communication.
SCIENTISTS TAKE STEP TOWARDS QUANTUM SUPREMACY
A Russian-German research team has created a quantum sensor that grants access to measurement and manipulation of individual two-level defects in qubits. The study by NUST MISIS, Russian Quantum Center and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, published in npj Quantum Information, may pave the way for quantum computing.
🗞 EARTH NEWS🌏:
RESEARCHERS IDENTIFY CHEMICAL PROCESSES AS KEY TO UNDERSTANDING LANDSLIDES
Mass movements such as landslides and hill-slope debris flows cause billions of euros in economic damage around the world every year. Between 20 and 80 million euros are spent annually from the disaster fund to repair disaster damage in Austria, 15 to 50 percent of which is attributable to mud flows and landslides.
HOW BUSHFIRE SMOKE TRAVELED AROUND THE WORLD
It’s not just how hot the fires burn—it’s also where they burn that matters. During the recent extreme fire season in Australia, which began in 2019 and burned into 2020, millions of tons of smoke particles were released into the atmosphere. Most of those particles followed a typical pattern, settling to the ground after a day or week; yet the ones created in fires burning in one corner of the country managed to blanket the entire Southern hemisphere for months. A pair of Israeli scientists managed to track puzzling January and February 2020 spikes in a measure of particle-laden haze to those fires, and then, in a paper recently published in Science, they uncovered the “perfect storm” of circumstances that swept the particles emitted from those fires into the upper atmosphere and spread them over the entire Southern Hemisphere.
🗞 ASTRONOMY & SPACE NEWS🌪🎇:
PERSEVERANCE ROVER CAPTURES THE SOUNDS OF DRIVING ON Mars
NASA’s newest rover recorded audio of itself crunching over the surface of the Red Planet, adding a whole new dimension to Mars exploration.
FOUND IN SPACE: COMPLEX CARBON-BASED MOLECULES
Much of the carbon in space is believed to exist in the form of large molecules called polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). Since the 1980s, circumstantial evidence has indicated that these molecules are abundant in space, but they have not been directly observed.
POWERFUL STRATOSPHERIC WINDS MEASURED ON JUPITER FOR THE FIRST TIME
Using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), in which the European Southern Observatory (ESO) is a partner, a team of astronomers has directly measured winds in Jupiter’s middle atmosphere for the first time. By analyzing the aftermath of a comet collision from the 1990s, the researchers have revealed incredibly powerful winds, with speeds of up to 1450 kilometers an hour, near Jupiter’s poles. They could represent what the team have described as a “unique meteorological beast in our solar system.”
🗞 NANOTECHNOLOGY NEWS⛄☃:
ARTIFICIAL NEURON DEVICE COULD SHRINK ENERGY USE AND SIZE OF NEURAL NETWORK HARDWARE
Training neural networks to perform tasks, such as recognizing images or navigating self-driving cars, could one day require less computing power and hardware thanks to a new artificial neuron device developed by researchers at the University of California San Diego. The device can run neural network computations using 100 to 1000 times less energy and area than existing CMOS-based hardware.
RESEARCH TEAM PRODUCES EXTREMELY CONDUCTIVE HYDROGEL FOR MEDICAL APPLICATIONS
Due to their tissue-like mechanical properties, hydrogels are being increasingly used for biomedical applications; a well-known example are soft contact lenses. These gel-like polymers consist of 90 percent water, are elastic and particularly biocompatible. Hydrogels that are also electrically conductive allow additional fields of application, for example in the transmission of electrical signals in the body or as sensors. An interdisciplinary research team of the Research Training Group (RTG) 2154 “Materials for Brain” at Kiel University (CAU) has now developed a method to produce hydrogels with an excellent level of electrical conductivity. What makes this method special is that the mechanical properties of the hydrogels are largely retained. This way they could be particularly well suited, for example, as a material for medical functional implants, which are used to treat certain brain diseases. The group’s findings were published on March 16, 2021 in the prestigious journal Nano Letters.
