The aim of this implant is to create a digital link between brains and computers. The demonstration showcased a computing link displaying the pig’s brain activity via a wireless link from the Neuralink.   The technology, which Musk says is close to r ...
Hayabusa2 deployed three rovers and a lander on the Ryugu asteroid, which collected samples of the asteroid's surface. The return mission has been officially approved to land in Australia on December 6th. (Image Credit: JAXA/Akihiro Ikeshita)   On August 19th, 2020, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) announced that its Hayabusa2 spacecraft had been approved to land in Australia on December 6th. The space cargo is returning to Earth while carrying sample material that was capture ...
The TI-125 is designed for measurement, detection, and sampling tasks for R&D and industrial functions, but can also be utilized for COVID-19 applications as well. (Image credit: Omega)   Omega designed its T-120 Series of thermal imaging cameras for research and development and industrial applications as a solution that can handle a myriad of measurement, sampling, and detection tasks over a wide area of operations. Compared to other thermal imaging systems on the market, the TI-120 Se ...
'This physical property can be used to make more precise measurements, which in turn can lead to advance technology like quantum computers. Quantum laser light shines on to a chemical molecule that needs to be measured. The light then passes through the quantum filter, which discards a lot of the light and condenses the useful information in a light that reached the camera. (Image credit: Hugo Lepage)   Scientists recently discovered a physical property, coined "quantum negativity," that c ...
The new system would be ideal for underwater data centers that need to connect with surface networks. The system uses various off-the-shelf components and a Raspberry Pi to act as a modem. (Image credit: KAUST)   With Wi-Fi readily available in our daily lives, it’s easy to take for granted how vital these connections are, especially underwater. Many underwater data centers depend on Wi-Fi to connect with the surface network infrastructure. But the strong signals required can be chal ...
The new method of tracking space junk involves using high-powered lasers that detect diffused reflections bouncing back from the debris orbiting up to 36,000 kilometers away. (Image credit: NASA)   There’s a good chance that no matter where you are on the planet, there will be a piece of garbage nearby. On the top of Mount Everest, deserted islands, the North and South Poles, even in the most desolate of places, there is always a piece of refuse not far away. The same is true in spac ...
Citizen-owned seismometers showed significant reductions of noise around schools and universities in places like Cornwall, UK and Boston, U.S.  (Image Credit: Imperial College London)   Seismometers measure seismic waves from earthquakes, volcanoes, and they can pick up vibrations from wind, rivers, ocean waves and human activities. An international team of researchers recently revealed that human-linked vibrations in the Earth dropped by an average of 50% between March and May 2020 d ...
