NASA’s Deep Space Lunar Gateway

#NASA #Space #Moon #DeepSpaceGateway #astronauts #Mars #science NASA aims to have a Deep space Gateway up and running in the 2020s. The gateway will be located on Moon and have a crew habitat, a propulsion module and an airlock. However, the gateway will be occupied intermittently, rather than continuously like the ISS. The gateway will … Continue reading NASA’s Deep Space Lunar Gateway

Cannot save the great barrier reef?

#GreatBarrierReef #Australia #science #environment #ecosystem #water #marine Scientists have reported to the Australian government that the Great Barrier Reef cannot be saved by the plans/policies mentioned in the Reef 2050 Long-Term Sustainability Plan. This is mainly due to the mass bleaching events, especially due to climate change. The AU$2 billion Reef 2050 plan was launched … Continue reading Cannot save the great barrier reef?

3D print objects using glass

#3Dprinting #science #technology #glass #stereolithography #Photopolymerisation Researchers from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany created a technique to 3D-print objects using glass by mixing nanoparticles of high-purity quartz glass and a small quantity of liquid polymer. They then allowed the mixture to be cured by light at specific points - by means of stereo-lithography. … Continue reading 3D print objects using glass

Capturing distant images without long lens

#science #space #telescope #lens #SAVI #Imaging A few scientists have developed a camera that can capture detailed images of distant objects without using a long lens. The system is knows as SAVI (Synthetic Apertures for long-range, subdiffraction-limited Visible Imaging). Like the technique used to achieve the 'Matrix' special effect, the images are taken from slightly … Continue reading Capturing distant images without long lens

Solar powered device to harvest water

#Solar #MIT #waterHarvester #technology #science The solar-powered harvester, constructed in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) can harvest liters of water from air everyday, even in desert conditions. All it needs is a minimum humidity of 20% in the air. Electric dehumidifier at homes produce very expensive water. Currently, the prototype can pull 2.8 liters … Continue reading Solar powered device to harvest water

New Horizons spacecraft reaches half the distance to its target

#NASA #science #space #NewHorizon #spacecraft #KuiperBelt #Pluto No, no, it is just a science mission to collect information and explore faraway stars. NASA's New Horizon's spacecraft has reached half the distance between Pluto and its next target - 2014 MU69, a Kuiper Belt object (KBO). The probe is believed to pass by MU69 on January … Continue reading New Horizons spacecraft reaches half the distance to its target

A stopwatch that can measure billionth of a second!

#NASA #space #Topology #Earth #surface #height #physics #science #ICESat-2 I am so fascinated by NASA. Always having something new to show. We will be able to record the precise height of sea ice, glaciers, forests and other Earth's surface with the help of a stopwatch timer that NASA scientists developed. The timer can supposedly measure … Continue reading A stopwatch that can measure billionth of a second!

A robot skin, more sensitive than a human one

#robotics #solarenergy #prosthetic #science #technology #UniversityofGlasgow #RavinderDahiya Professor Ravinder Dahiya, an electrical engineer at the University of Glasgow, along with his colleagues has developed an electronic, self-powered robotic surface that is more sensitive to touch than a human hand. According to Dahiya, the robotic surface can be used in prosthetic limbs for people, as well … Continue reading A robot skin, more sensitive than a human one

Stephen Hawking to travel to space

#StephenHawking #science #VirginGroup #space #RichardBranson #VirginGalactic Stephen Hawking's most happy moment in life was the birth of his first child. However, after that blessed moment, the research physicist said that the experience he is looking most forward to now is going to space. Although, Professor Hawking never expected to get to travel to space in … Continue reading Stephen Hawking to travel to space

Miniature lab for experiments in outer space

#lab #experiments #scientists #science #space #technology #SpacePharma A tiny satellite with a laboratory, and as small as a tissue box, is helping scientists carry out experiments at zero-gravity. The said satellite is orbiting the earth at more than 500 kilometers. The technology was launched into space last year by SpacePharma, a Swiss-Israeli company, which on … Continue reading Miniature lab for experiments in outer space
