Scientists have discovered that terahertz light - light at trillions of cycles per second - can act as a control knob to accelerate supercurrents. That can help open up the quantum world of matter and energy at atomic and subatomic scales.
A new type of computer memory promises to transform daily life with its ultra-low energy consumption, allowing computers which do not need to boot up and which could sleep between key strokes.
Scientists offer a solution to the fast-approaching physical minimum for transistor size: a multi-value logic transistor based on zinc oxide, capable of two stable intermediate states between 0 and 1.
SpaceX has launched 60 little satellites, the first of thousands that founder Elon Musk plans to put in orbit for global internet coverage.
Researchers at Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) have announced a new version of their hydraulic, quadrupedal robot, HyQReal — and what better way to show off the bot’s capabilities than by pulling a three-ton airplane.
Those in favour of the move said the technology as it exists today is unreliable, and represented an unnecessary infringement on people’s privacy and liberty.
Scientists have succeeded in developing a piece of hardware which could pave the way for creating computers resembling the human brain. They produced a chip containing a network of artificial neurons that works with light and can imitate neurons and their synapses.
The flight involved a specially designed drone equipped with an ‘apparatus’ that both monitored the donor organ and maintained it, as well as a mesh network for control and a backup systems.
The six-engine jet that will be used to launch rockets into space took off from Mojave Airport in California last Saturday. The first flight of Stratolaunch lasted 2 hours and 30 minutes and reached 5,180 meters.
A team of researchers from Singapore and Australia have implemented a prototype quantum device that can generate and analyze a quantum superposition of possible futures.
All in all, from inventory checking to monitoring noise levels and more, the robotic bees, astrobees, are all set to be helpers, and they will serve as the crew's extra eyes and ears.
