colonizationMars-Moon Lava Tube habitation simulation in Iceland

0
Mike Dunn talked about the use of lava tubes for the Moon and Mars habitats. Mike has worked on The Mars Lava Tube Pressurization Project’s (MLTPP). The lunar soil is 40% oxygen. Lunar cement could be made to block off …

antiagingRejuvenating blood vessels and vitality for an antiaging effect

0
David Sinclair and his team at Harvard Medical School claim to be able to reverse the aging of blood vessels and it restores youthful vitality. Using the synthetic precursors of two molecules naturally present in the body, the scientists also …

lasersProgress to photonic quantum computation

0
One of the goals of photonics is to implement photonic quantum computation. Quantum interference of single photons at a 50:50 beamsplitter is a key phenomenon in quantum physics and lies at the heart of linear optical quantum computation. Researchers have …

dronesRobotic bumble bee sized drones will explore Mars by flying with flapping insect like wings

0
Marsbees are robotic flapping wing flyers of a bumblebee size with cicada sized wings. The Marsbees are integrated with sensors and wireless communication devices. The mobile base can act as a recharging station and main communication center. The swarm of …

asteroidsSwarm of probes could measure the mass of asteroids and comets

0
Swarm Flyby Gravimetry is a concept to determine the mass of asteroid or comets during flyby using a collection of small, disposable tracking targets called probes. The probes are deployed from a spacecraft and tracked as they pass near to …

0
There is a proposed $1.275 billion National Quantum Initiative to accelerating research and training in quantum computing. The funding would be provided over ten years. Several centers of excellence for quantum computing would help train many quantum engineers. Chris Monroe, …

DNAWoolly Mammoths would prevent the permafrost from melting and help save the planet

0
The goal of woolly mammoth project is to solve the permafrost climate issue. The top area of the world is covered in permafrost. The Siberian and Canadian tundra is this mass of permafrost and that permafrost is a ticking time …

nanowireSuperconducting nanowires created that are promising for future quantum computers

0
Dutch researchers have successfully developed nanowires allowing individual electrons to be captured by a ‘quantum dot’ on which superconductivity can take place. These nanowires could make powerful quantum computers. The combination of a quantum dot and superconductivity makes it possible …
