A team of scientists at Florida State University's High-Performance Materials Institute is using advanced nanomaterials to produce lightweight heat shields that can stand up to the impact of hypersonic speeds.
Although multicopter drones now are being used to transport medical samples and supplies, their 30-minute (or so) battery life limits their range. This week, however, a hydrogen-powered delivery drone managed a one-hour, 43-minute ocean crossing.
The structure that will house one of the largest and most ambitious energy experiments in history is now complete, with engineers working on the ITER Tokamak Building swinging their last pylon into place in readiness for the nuclear fusion reactor's
Amputees wishing to get a powered prosthetic hand – also known as a bionic hand – typically have to wait quite a while for the thing to be manufactured. Soon, however, they should be able to order a custom bionic hand that's 3D-printed within 10
Starlink v1.0 production satellites have 400% increase in overall bandwidth compared to version 0.9 starlink satellites. tarlink v1.0 satellites have antennas with twice as many steerable beams. They can serve more regions at the same time.
British company Oxis Energy believes its high capacity lithium-sulfur batteries, which hold up to five times more energy per weight than lithium-ion cells, are ready to vastly increase the range of electric aircraft.
Having clogged sinuses isn't fun. You can't breath, you can't smell, your head hurts, and your voice sounds funny. Finding relief when you have clogged sinuses is usually like finding a million dollars on the ground -- it's amazing!
The dream of three-dimensional commuting is slowly coming closer, with a number of companies well into the test phase with various electric VTOL air taxi designs that will soon begin offering point-to-point flights far, far more cheaply than helicopt
Solar power is a hot topic these days. With energy costs increasing and expected to keep on increasing, many are seeing solar power as the way to go. While expensive, it's possible to add solar power to pretty much any home.
Beekeepers frequently open up their hives to check on them, but doing so adds to their workload, and it stresses out the bees. A team of Dutch entrepreneurs set out to develop an alternative, resulting in the BEEP base hive-monitoring system.
Elon Musk talked about needing one thousand Starship flights to create a sustainable Mars city.
American Airlines is the airline with largest fleet of passenger airplanes. American has 957 planes. 157 widebody planes and 782 narrow-body planes.
Superhydrophobic materials, which are excellent at repelling water, can be extremely useful for a whole range of reasons, both obvious and not-so-obvious. They can prevent ice from building up on surfaces, make electronics waterproof, make ships more
Maersk has teamed with Trident Maritime Systems to create a 600 kWh container battery that can be placed on a container-hauling ship to provide power. The battery is now en route to be installed on the Maersk Cape Town container vessel.
Writing in 1889, the Swiss pathologist Ernst Ziegler observed that "a brief and precise definition of inflammation is altogether impossible." Even back then, experts like Ziegler recognized that inflammation manifests in different ways, and that
OmniVision has announced that its OV6948 unit has been declared the world's smallest commercially available image sensor by Guinness World Records. And the company has now squeezed it into a new camera module.
It certainly would be great if instead of having to be harvested from a patient's own body, permanent skin grafts could be 3D-printed as needed. Well, we may be getting a little closer to that point, as scientists have now bioprinted living skin comp
That all changed when scientists began using lidar, a remote sensing technique that shoots lasers from low-flying planes. By measuring a laser's travel time, scientists can determine the shape of the ground within a few centimeters and create a pic
Fiber-optic cables send light signals down a glass or plastic fiber thinner than a strand of hair. Reflective cladding surrounding that core boosts the signal in a technique called "total internal reflection." The speed of the light passing down
It takes a lot of systems engineering-the ability to work on all layers of the stack. This is as complicated as it gets from a systems engineering perspective. You are literally starting with a wafer, and there is a team which is literally etching
A team of high school students have developed an inexpensive device that can generate electricity from sound.
The eleventh grade students from the Philippine Science High School-Western Visayas Campus (PSHS-WVC) say that the generator is like the
