Dear esteem reader,
Here is your SHAB TECHNOLOGY PLANET customized technology news for November 9, 2020.
Spotlight Stories Headlines
🗞 TECHNOLOGY NEWS💻🔧🖥:
*SHAB TECHNOLOGY PLANET PARTNERS WITH KOREVIBES.*
The latest and trending news is about the new partnership deal between SHAB TECHNOLOGY PLANET and the topnotch website korevibes.com
Full update available on all the S.T.P social media platforms.
*Next-generation computer chip with two heads*
EPFL engineers have developed a computer chip that combines two functions—logic operations and data storage—into a single architecture, paving the way to more efficient devices. Their technology is particularly promising for applications relying on artificial intelligence.
*Scientists develop energy-saving ‘liquid window’*
Scientists at the Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) have developed a liquid window panel that can simultaneously block the sun to regulate solar transmission, while trapping thermal heat that can be released through the day and night, helping to reduce energy consumption in buildings.
*Lithium-ion battery research ‘flowers’*
Lithium-ion batteries work by shuffling lithium ions between a positive electrode (cathode) and a negative electrode (anode) during charging and in the opposite direction during discharging. Our smartphones, laptops, and electric vehicles conventionally employ lithium-ion batteries with anodes made of graphite, a form of carbon. Lithium is inserted into graphite as you charge the battery and removed as you use the battery.
🗞 PHYSICS NEWS⚙♨:
*Why solar axions cannot explain the observed XENON1T excess*
For several decades, physicists and astrophysicists have theorized about the existence of dark matter in the universe. This elusive type of matter would be made up of particles that do not absorb, reflect or emit light, and that hence cannot be detected using conventional instruments for observing particles.
*Physicists suggest mechanism responsible for the neutron drip line is related to deformation*
A team of physicists affiliated with several institutions in Japan and one in Belgium has theorized that one of the mechanisms responsible for the neutron drip line is related to deformation. In their paper published in the journal Nature, the group describes their calculations regarding the contributions to binding energy for deformations in nuclei as part of an effort to better understand how many neutrons an atom can hold.
🗞 EARTH NEWS🌏:
*The biggest trees capture the most carbon: Large trees dominate carbon storage in forests*
Older, large-diameter trees have been shown to store disproportionally massive amounts of carbon compared to smaller trees, highlighting their importance in mitigating climate change, according to a new study in Frontiers in Forests and Global Change. Researchers examined the aboveground carbon storage of large-diameter trees (>21 inches or >53.3 cm) on National Forest lands within Oregon and Washington. They found that despite only accounting for 3% of the total number of trees on the studied plots, large trees stored 42% of the total above-ground carbon within these forest ecosystems. This study is among the first of its kind to report how a proposed policy could affect carbon storage in forest ecosystems, potentially weakening protections for large-diameter trees and contributing to huge releases of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere in the face of a changing climate.
*Hydrogen bonds may be key to airborne dicamba*
Dicamba has been the subject of lawsuits across the country, with landowners contending the herbicide, when used by neighboring growers, has blown onto their property, killing valuable non-resistant crops.
*The burning question of Bonfire Night pollution*
Bonfire Night celebrations contaminate our air with hugely elevated amounts of soot, scientists have found.
🗞 ASTRONOMY & SPACE NEWS🌪🎇:
*The International Space Station at 20 offers hope and a template for future cooperation*
On Nov. 2, 2020, the International Space Station celebrated its 20th anniversary of continuous human occupation. With astronauts and cosmonauts from around the world working together, the ISS has demonstrated humankind’s ability to not only live and work in space but cooperate with one another. This remarkable achievement is significant as countries and companies around the world look to expand space exploration beyond Earth orbit.
🗞 NANOTECHNOLOGY NEWS⛄☃:
*Nature-inspired design: Mimicking moth eyes to produce transparent anti-reflective coatings*
There are many human problems that scientists and engineers have solved by drawing ideas directly from biomechanisms found in other lifeforms, from Velcro to Japan’s famous bullet trains, the Shinkansen. Thus, it should not come as a surprise to know that many remarkable advances in anti-reflective coating were inspired by the peculiar biostructures found in moth eyes.
