A PUBLIC DIGITAL ATLAS OF EXTREME WIND SPEEDS FOR WIND ENERGY APPLICATIONS
Over the past few decades, researchers have developed increasingly advanced technologies that convert natural sources into electrical energy through the use of solar cells and wind turbines. Recently, the wind energy industry has been expanding rapidly, with a growing number of companies and governments investing in the use of wind turbines and other wind energy converters.
NEW SKIN PATCH BRINGS US CLOSER TO WEARABLE, ALL-IN-ONE HEALTH MONITOR
Engineers at the University of California San Diego have developed a soft, stretchy skin patch that can be worn on the neck to continuously track blood pressure and heart rate while measuring the wearer’s levels of glucose as well as lactate, alcohol or caffeine. It is the first wearable device that monitors cardiovascular signals and multiple biochemical levels in the human body at the same time.
A MACHINE-LEARNING APPROACH TO FINDING TREATMENT OPTIONS FOR COVID-19
When the COVID-19 pandemic struck in early 2020, doctors and researchers rushed to find effective treatments. There was little time to spare. “Making new drugs takes forever,” says Caroline Uhler, a computational biologist in MIT’s Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and the Institute for Data, Systems and Society, and an associate member of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. “Really, the only expedient option is to repurpose existing drugs.”

LIGHT USED TO DETECT QUANTUM INFORMATION STORED IN 100,000 NUCLEAR QUANTUM BITS
Researchers have found a way to use light and a single electron to communicate with a cloud of quantum bits and sense their behavior, making it possible to detect a single quantum bit in a dense cloud.
MOIRÉ PATTERNS FACILITATE DISCOVERY OF NOVEL INSULATING PHASES
Materials having excess electrons are typically conductors. However, moiré patterns—interference patterns that typically arise when one object with a repetitive pattern is placed over another with a similar pattern—can suppress electrical conductivity, a study led by physicists at the University of California, Riverside, has found.
RESEARCHERS EXPLORE USING LIGHT TO LEVITATE DISCS IN THE MESOSPHERE
A team of researchers at the University of Pennsylvania has found that it is possible to levitate very thin discs in conditions that mimic the mesosphere using laser light. In their paper published in the journal Science Advances, the group describes their research involving a possible way to allow flight at very high altitudes and how well it worked.
? EARTH NEWS?:
IN PREDICTING SHALLOW BUT DANGEROUS LANDSLIDES, SIZE MATTERS
The threat of landslides is again in the news as torrential winter storms in California threaten to undermine fire-scarred hillsides and bring deadly debris flows crashing into homes and inundating roads.
CO2 DIP MAY HAVE HELPED DINOSAURS WALK FROM SOUTH AMERICA TO GREENLAND
A new paper refines estimates of when herbivorous dinosaurs must have traversed North America on a northerly trek to reach Greenland, and points out an intriguing climatic phenomenon that may have helped them along the journey.
CHINA FACES SUBSTANTIALLY HOTTER SUMMERS AND WINTERS BY 2050
Temperatures in China may increase dramatically within the next three decades as the country begins to feel the effects of global greenhouse gas emissions, new research has shown.
? ASTRONOMY & SPACE NEWS??:
LARGE PROTO-CLUSTER OF GALAXIES DISCOVERED IN THE MIDST OF CLEARING THE COSMIC FOG
When the universe was about 350 million years old it was dark: there were no stars or galaxies, only neutral gas—mainly hydrogen—the residue of the Big Bang. That foggy period began to clear as atoms clumped together to form the first stars and the first quasars, causing the gas to ionize and high-energy photons to travel freely through space.
MELTING DUSTY ICE MAY HAVE CARVED MARTIAN GULLIES
By analyzing the occurrences of exposed dusty ice on Mars using data from NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, ASU planetary scientists Aditya Khuller and Philip Christensen have found the lowest latitude detection of dusty water ice on Mars.
RUSSIAN CARGO SHIP LAUNCHED TO INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION
An unmanned Russian cargo ship launched successfully Monday with a load of supplies for the International Space Station.
? NANOTECHNOLOGY NEWS⛄☃:
HARNESSING SOCIALLY DISTANT MOLECULAR INTERACTIONS FOR FUTURE COMPUTING
Could long-distance interactions between individual molecules forge a new way to compute?
KAGOME GRAPHENE PROMISES EXCITING PROPERTIES
Researchers around the world are searching for new synthetic materials with special properties like superconductivity—that is, the conduction of electric current without resistance. These new substances are an important step in the development of highly energy-efficient electronics. The starting material is often a single-layer honeycomb structure of carbon atoms (graphene).
