Chandrayan 2 entered the moon’s orbit after 30 days in space

August 20, 2019

The Indian Chandrayan 2 was successfully brought into lunar orbit today after nearly 30 days of flying into space. This is one of the most difficult operations in the mission. Speeds approaching higher than expected will bounce from the spacecraft into space, while a slow approach will cause the gravity of the moon to pull […]

New 3D connectivity technology for the future portable bioelectronics

August 19, 2019

The wearable biotech industry has recently shown an insatiable hunger for futuristic goods. Pain control glasses that monitor brain waves are an important label that must be considered, and even reading glasses for the mind. These are just a few of the latest topics discussed at the Digital Health and Neurotech Silicon Valley Wear Conference […]

The wireless sensor band aid that attach to the skin to track our health conditions

August 18, 2019

Stanford engineers have developed experimental stickers that pick up physiological signals emanating from the skin then wirelessly beam these health readings to a receiver clipped onto clothing It’s all part of a system called BodyNet. We tend to take our skin’s protective function for granted ignoring its other roles in signaling subtleties like a fluttering […]

Hubble portrait of gas shining star

August 17, 2019

Although more like a microscope than a telescope, this round object, called NGC 2022, is certainly not algae or small jellyfish, but a large ball of gas in space emitted from an aging star. The star is visible at the center of the ball and shines through the gases it previously held for most of […]

Gaps in understanding magnetic monopoly can be a signal for new technology

August 16, 2019

Breakthroughs in understanding the behavior of pseudo particles, called magnetic monopolies, can lead to the development of new technologies to replace electric charges. University of Kent researchers use a combination of quantum and classical physics to study how magnetic atoms interact to form compound objects known as magnetic monopoles.

Fluorescent lighting can reveal hidden life in the universe

August 15, 2019

Astronomers have found a new way to search for life in space. The explosion of red solar ultraviolet radiation from space previously thought to destroy life on the surface of the planet can help uncover hidden biosphere. The radiation can produce protective light from the life of extrasolar planets, known as biofluorescence.

Hubble telescope Catches 2 Galaxies at Play

August 11, 2019

This galaxy duo is known as UGC 2369. The galaxies interact, which means that their mutual attraction pulls them closer, changing their shape. You can see thick bridges of gas dust and stars connecting the two galaxies as they pull material through the narrowing between them into space.

Virtual “universe machines” illuminate the evolution of the Galaxy

August 10, 2019

By creating millions of virtual universes and comparing them to observations of actual galaxies a UA led research team has made discoveries that present a powerful new approach for studying galaxy formation.

Small biodegradable circuits for the release of painkillers inside the body

August 9, 2019

Patients with orthopedic prostheses usually experience severe pain after surgery. To relieve pain, the surgeon injects painkillers into the tissue during surgery. When this disappears a day or two later, the patient is given morphine through a catheter near the spine.
