New mission to search for signs of alien life in Alpha Centauri

Posted by in categories: alien life, innovation

“Modern satellite technology will allow us to explore our celestial backyard.”

The University of Sydney and Bulgarian aerospace manufacturer EnduroSat have teamed up to search for alien life in our nearest star system, Alpha Centauri.

The plan for the TOLIMAN mission is to search for planets in the habitable zone around two Sun-like stars in the system, Alpha Centauri A and B, which are located four light-years from Earth.

Ford launches German-engineered all-electric Explorer for Europe

Posted by in category: transportation

Explorer will take road trips in its stride, with charging from 10–80 per cent in 25 minutes.

U.S.-based carmaker Ford has announced its new all-electric Explorer, the first of many EVs to come from the company as part of the company’s rebranding in Europe, according to a press release.

The vehicle seats five across two rows and offers ample storage space of around 470 liters in five-seat mode, making it perfect for exploring cities and beyond.

These French Fries Last 90 Days Outside the Fridge or Freezer

Posted by in categories: biological, food, life extension, sustainability

Food tech startup Farther Farms has developed a process that keeps foods that would normally need to be refrigerated or frozen fresh at room temperature — and their first product is a bag of shelf-stable French fries.

The cold chain: Microorganisms are a major cause of food spoilage, and they thrive at room temperature. By keeping some foods cold, we can slow the growth of these microbes, extending the life of the food.

To do that, the foods must be prepared, shipped, and stored along a temperature-controlled supply chain (a “cold chain”). If the cold chain is broken at any point along the way, the food may quickly become unsafe to eat.

Can Plastic Waste Go Away?

Posted by in category: materials

How do catalysts work? When exposed to a target material, the interaction alters the molecular structure of the target without changing the catalyst.

Instead of waste plastic ending up in our oceans and landfills, we can turn it into feedstock for new hydrocarbon-based materials.

An expanding universe is simulated in a quantum droplet

Posted by in categories: cosmology, mathematics, quantum physics

Unfortunately for the field of cosmology, there is only one universe. This makes performing experiments in the same way as other scientific fields quite a challenge. But it turns out that the universe and the quantum fields that permeate it are highly analogous to quantum fluids like Bose-Einstein condensates (BECs), at least from a mathematical point of view. These fluids can be the subject of experiments, allowing cosmology to be studied in the lab.

\r \r.

In a paper published in Nature, researchers at Heidelberg University in Germany have for the first time used a BEC to simulate an expanding universe and certain quantum fields within it. This allows for the study of important cosmological scenarios. Not only is the universe currently expanding, but it is believed that in the first fractions of a second after the Big Bang it underwent a period of extremely rapid expansion known as “inflation.” This process would have expanded the microscopic fluctuations of quantum fields in the early universe to the size of galaxy clusters, seeding the large-scale structure of our universe today.

We’re one step closer to a meaty cyberpunk future as scientists create a ‘living computer’ using 80,000 mouse brain cells

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, robotics/AI

Scientists in the US managed to put together a living computer by cultivating over 80,000 mouse stem cells (opens in new tab) (via IT Home) (opens in new tab). One day, the hope is to have a robot that uses living muscle tissue to sense and process information about its environment.

Researchers at the University of Illinois have used tens of thousands of living mouse brain cells to build a computer that can recognize patterns of light and electricity. The team presented their findings at the American Institute of Physics in the form of a computer about the size of your palm.

What if a brain was given technology?

Posted by in categories: computing, neuroscience

What if you could control a device, not with your hand, but with your mind? Physician and entrepreneur Tom Oxley talks about the implantable brain-computer interface that can change the way we think.
