How Trump Undercuts His Own NASA Policy

How Trump Undercuts His Own NASA Policy

Several months ago, the Trump administration announced an urgent need for Apollo to return to the moon within five years. On Friday, President Trump told Twitter that NASA seemed to be focusing on the wrong goal. The administration’s space policy aspects have been greatly appreciated, including a new focus on the moon, measures to reduce … Read moreHow Trump Undercuts His Own NASA Policy

How SpaceX Unveils Model Of Ship It Would

How SpaceX Unveils Model Of Ship It Would

Its massive rocket upgrade was scheduled 11 years ago to coincide with the memory of a successful SpaceX launch for the first time. SpaceX’s satellite orbit and the International Space Station have the constant work of transporting cargo. But can the company achieve its founder’s goal of taking people to Mars? The company’s first missile, … Read moreHow SpaceX Unveils Model Of Ship It Would

The microbiomes of fruit flies shape their growth

The microbiomes of fruit flies shape their growth

In an experiment on fruit flies, or black fruit flies, researchers at the University of Pennsylvania found that the addition of different types of microbes to the diet of flies led to genetic change, causing important genetic changes in just five generations. “Our work strongly suggests how microbial society moves to form, at least in … Read moreThe microbiomes of fruit flies shape their growth

The new approach paves the way for emission-free cement

The new approach paves the way for emission-free cement

Cement production – the largest building material in the world – is known to be a major source of greenhouse gas emissions, accounting for about 8 percent of all emissions. If cement production were a country, it would be the third largest emitter in the world. A team of researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of … Read moreThe new approach paves the way for emission-free cement

Programmable herds help create flexible biological tools

Programmable herds help create flexible biological tools

Duke University’s biomedical engineers have developed a new platform for manufacturing biological drugs using specially designed bacteria that explode and secrete useful proteins when they feel the capsule is too crowded. Capsules can shrink in response to changes in the bacterial population. When it shrinks, the capsule squeezes the target protein produced by the captured … Read moreProgrammable herds help create flexible biological tools

New European Union Commission Facing Climate Change

New European Union Commission Facing Climate Change

The next European Commission, which has been in charge of the EU since November, has made the world’s ambitious battle against climate change the focal point of its mandate, with a senior vice president in charge of the issue. The challenge has become urgent for everyone, as scientists say UN estimates of global warming are … Read moreNew European Union Commission Facing Climate Change

Scientists make fully electronic 2-D spin transistors

Scientists make fully electronic 2-D spin transistors

The monolayer of diclogenogenide transition (TMD) was placed on top of graphene to induce the conversion of the charge into a spin to graphene. This empirical observation is described in the Nano Letters magazine edition, published on September 11, 2019. Spintronics is an attractive alternative way of making low-power electronic devices. It does not depend … Read moreScientists make fully electronic 2-D spin transistors

Studies show that there is a ‘radical’ wrinkle in creating complex carbon molecules in space

Studies show that there is a 'radical' wrinkle in creating complex carbon molecules in space

A team of scientists at the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Laboratory) has discovered a new possible path to building carbon structures in space using a special chemical exploration technique. The team’s research has now identified several pathways in which molecules, known as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), can form in space. The … Read moreStudies show that there is a ‘radical’ wrinkle in creating complex carbon molecules in space

Remora-induced suction disc mimics the adhesion capacity of fish

Remora-induced suction disc mimics the adhesion capacity of fish

  Remura fish are famous hikers in the marine world, with high-energy suction discs behind their heads to attach themselves to big hosts in a torpedo-like way, ranging from whales and sharks to boats and divers. Can provide food and security. The key to Remora adhesion is the well-known ability of the disc to produce … Read moreRemora-induced suction disc mimics the adhesion capacity of fish
