adiabatic quantum computerChina’s nuclear energy production increased over 20% in August, World adds 9 new reactors in 2016 to reach 450 operational reactors

China’s power consumption in August rose 8.3 percent from a year ago because of increased cooling demand due to high temperatures. China’s power consumption reached 563.1 billion kilowatt hours (kwh) in August, said Zhao Chenxin, spokesman for the National Development …

adiabatic quantum computerResearchers are getting close to metallic hydrogen and tiny diamond crystals bound by graphene is 4 times stronger than regular diamond crystal

Diamonds are formed from the same carbon atoms that also make up the soft graphite found in the centre of pencils. The difference between these two forms of carbon is the arrangement of the atoms The search for superhard materials …

adiabatic quantum computerUS research make progress to supercavitation submarines able to go thousands of miles per hour

Engineers from Penn State Applied Research Laboratory have a new approach for supercavitation which could enable submarines traveling at hundreds of miles per hour. In theory, a supercavitating vessel could reach the speed of sound underwater, or about 5,800km/h, which …

adiabatic quantum computerScientists extend life of mice by 35 per cent by removing accumulated cells that no longer divide with compound AP20187

Researchers at Mayo Clinic have shown that senescent cells – cells that no longer divide and accumulate with age – negatively impact health and shorten lifespan by as much as 35 percent in normal mice. The results, which appear today …

adiabatic quantum computerGenetically Modified Mosquito May Become Weapon Against Zika Virus

Genetically modified mosquitoes that would help fight the Zika virus are getting urgent attention from U.S. regulators as global health officials raise alarms about the pathogen’s spread. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is in the final stages of reviewing …

adiabatic quantum computerRice University develops conductive graphene composite material to heat surfaces, simplify ice removal

A thin coating of graphene nanoribbons in epoxy developed at Rice University has proven effective at melting ice on a helicopter blade. The coating by the Rice lab of chemist James Tour may be an effective real-time de-icer for aircraft, …

adiabatic quantum computerStar dimming for 100 years with irregular dips in brightness consistent with Dyson swarm construction and orbiting of partial Dyson Swarm

The star KIC8462852 (TYC 3162-665-1) is apparently a perfectly normal star, with no spectral peculiarities, appearing in the original Cygnus/Lyra field studied with the Kepler spacecraft. But then, the Planet Hunters project discovered in the Kepler light curve that KIC8462852 …

adiabatic quantum computerResearchers see promising results in treating age-related decline in muscle mass and power

A proof-of-concept, phase 2 trial by an international research team has found promising results for a myostatin antibody in treating the decline in muscle mass and power associated with aging. “Myostatin is a natural protein produced within the body that …

adiabatic quantum computerUS Army seaks to Unleash brainpower for cognitive dominance using virtual reality and machine augmentation

“Human performance will be as important, if not more important, than technology in 2030,” predicted a high-level Army intelligence expert. The reason is that “we’ve seen an erosion in our technological advantage to overmatch adversaries,” a trend that will continue, …

adiabatic quantum computerFour out of Eight Yuan Class Submarines will be built in Pakistan

Pakistan will build four of the eight submarines it plans to purchase from China, potentially speeding up the timeframe for delivery of the class to the Pakistan Navy, according to Rana Tanveer Hussain, minister for defence production. The minister did …
