Spotlight Stories Headlines
🗞 TECHNOLOGY NEWS💻🔧🖥:
TEAM BUILDS FIRST HACKER-RESISTANT CLOUD SOFTWARE SYSTEM
Whenever you buy something on Amazon, your customer data is automatically updated and stored on thousands of virtual machines in the cloud. For businesses like Amazon, ensuring the safety and security of the data of its millions of customers is essential. This is true for large and small organizations alike. But up to now, there has been no way to guarantee that a software system is secure from bugs, hackers, and vulnerabilities.
SHAPE-SHIFTING COMPUTER CHIP THWARTS AN ARMY OF HACKERS
We have developed and tested a secure new computer processor that thwarts hackers by randomly changing its underlying structure, thus making it virtually impossible to hack.
MORE EFFICIENT LIDAR SENSING FOR SELF-DRIVING CARS
If you see a self-driving car out in the wild, you might notice a giant spinning cylinder on top of its roof. That’s a lidar sensor, and it works by sending out pulses of infrared light and measuring the time it takes for them to bounce off objects. This creates a map of 3D points that serve as a snapshot of the car’s surroundings.
🗞 PHYSICS NEWS⚙♨:
RICE PHYSICISTS’ RAMBO REVEALS MAGNETIC PHENOMENON USEFUL FOR QUANTUM SIMULATION AND SENSING
Sometimes things are a little out of whack, and it turns out to be exactly what you need.
AS WATER SOURCES BECOME SCARCE, UNDERSTANDING EMERGING SUBSURFACE CONTAMINANTS IS KEY
In the last year, one thing has become clear: we cannot live life without risk. In fact, every part of our daily routines became subject to analysis: How risky is the action and is its value worth the potential cost?
PROBING DEEPER INTO ORIGINS OF COSMIC RAYS
Cosmic rays are high-energy atomic particles continually bombarding Earth’s surface at nearly the speed of light. Our planet’s magnetic field shields the surface from most of the radiation generated by these particles. Still, cosmic rays can cause electronic malfunctions and are the leading concern in planning for space missions.
🗞 EARTH NEWS🌏:
WESTERN FIRES ARE BURNING HIGHER IN THE MOUNTAINS AT UNPRECEDENTED RATES IN A CLEAR SIGN OF CLIMATE CHANGE
The Western U.S. appears headed for another dangerous fire season, and a new study shows that even high mountain areas once considered too wet to burn are at increasing risk as the climate warms.
THE EARLIEST ROUND-THE-WORLD MARINE RESEARCH VOYAGES GIVE NEW INSIGHTS ON CLIMATE CHANGE
For the first time, scientists have used ocean measurements taken on research voyages almost 150 years ago to learn more about how human activity has impacted climate change.
SATELLITES MAY HAVE UNDERESTIMATED WARMING IN THE LOWER ATMOSPHERE
New research by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) climate scientists and collaborators shows that satellite measurements of the temperature of the troposphere (the lowest region of the atmosphere) may have underestimated global warming over the last 40 years.
🗞 ASTRONOMY & SPACE NEWS🌪🎇:
MAPPING THE LOCAL COSMIC WEB: DARK MATTER MAP REVEALS HIDDEN BRIDGES BETWEEN GALAXIES
A new map of dark matter in the local universe reveals several previously undiscovered filamentary structures connecting galaxies. The map, developed using machine learning by an international team including a Penn State astrophysicist, could enable studies about the nature of dark matter as well as about the history and future of our local universe.
PACIFIC READIES FOR ‘SUPER BLOOD MOON’ CELESTIAL SHOW
Stargazers across the Pacific Rim can cast their eyes skyward on Wednesday night and behold a “Super Blood Moon”, as the heavens align to bring a rare celestial twin treat.
PREBIOTIC ETHANOLAMINE FOUND IN A MOLECULAR CLOUD NEAR THE CENTER OF THE MILKY WAY
An international team of researchers has found evidence of prebiotic ethanolamine (NH2CH2CH2OH) in a molecular cloud near the center of the Milky Way galaxy. In their paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the group describes their study of the amino alcohol and why they believe it could have contributed to the development of life on earth.
🗞 NANOTECHNOLOGY NEWS⛄☃:
SOFT X-RAY METHOD PROMISES NANOCARRIER BREAKTHROUGHS FOR SMART MEDICINE
Before the huge potential of tiny nanocarriers for highly targeted drug delivery and environmental clean-up can be realized, scientists first need to be able to see them.
SILVER ATTACKS BACTERIA, GETS ‘CONSUMED’
For millennia, silver has been utilized for its antimicrobial and antibacterial properties. Although its use as a disinfectant is widely known, the effects of silver’s interaction with bacteria on the silver itself are not well understood.
RESEARCH TEAM DEVELOPS SELF-HEALING QUANTUM EMITTER WITH UNPRECEDENTED BRIGHTNESS
Perovskite quantum dots are the rising stars of quantum emitters, but their inherent instability has hampered their development. Professor Hao-Wu Lin of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Associate Professor Chih-Sung Chuu of the Department of Physics, and Professor Richard Schaller of the Department of Chemistry at Northwestern University in the United States have jointly developed a perovskite quantum emitter with high stability and self-healing ability by a self-developed, simple, and economical procedure—spray-synthesis method. The unprecedented single-photon brightness of these quantum dots breaks the world-record, which makes them become the brightest room-temperature quantum emitter materials and constitute a major breakthrough in both quantum communication and quantum computing.
