Intuitive Machines shares jump after successful moon landing

Posted by in category: space

Shares of Intuitive Machines, which fell for two straight sessions before the landing, were among the top trending stocks on retail trader platform Stocktwits on Friday.

More shares traded in February — exceeding 200 million — than in the previous two years combined, according to LSEG data.

Ghaffarian, who is also the co-founder of Axiom Space, is on the board of other space organizations and has held numerous technical and management positions at Lockheed Martin, Ford Aerospace and Loral.

Scientists discover 240-million-year-old dinosaur that resembles a “mythical Chinese dragon”

Posted by in category: futurism

A team of international scientists have discovered 240-million-year-old fossils from the Triassic period in China that one scientist described as a “long and snake-like, mythical Chinese dragon.”

The 16-foot-long aquatic reptile, called Dinocephalosaurus orientalis, has 32 separate neck vertebrae – an extremely long neck, according to the National Museums of Scotland, which announced the news on Friday.

The new fossil has a snake-like appearance and flippers and was found in the Guizhou Province of southern China.

James Webb Spots Something Lurking in Wreckage of Supernova

Posted by in category: cosmology

With the help of the James Webb Space Telescope, scientists have figured out a mystery at the heart of a supernova that’s been decades in the making.

As Space.com reports, Supernova 1987A, so named for the year it was discovered here on Earth, exploded so brightly after its death that for more than 30 years, scientists weren’t sure whether it was going to form a mega-dense and compact neutron star or a black hole.

Now, an international team of scientists has begun unraveling the mystery of that long-ago explosion with the discovery of its associated neutron star, as imaged by the JWST and described in their new paper published in the journal Science.

Engineers 3D print the electromagnets at the heart of many electronics

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, biotech/medical

Imagine being able to build an entire dialysis machine using nothing more than a 3D printer.

This could not only reduce costs and eliminate manufacturing waste, but since this machine could be produced outside a factory, people with limited resources or those who live in remote areas may be able to access this more easily.

While multiple hurdles must be overcome to develop that are entirely 3D printed, a team at MIT has taken an important step in this direction by demonstrating fully 3D-printed, three-dimensional solenoids.

Gigantic new anaconda species discovered in Amazon rainforest

Posted by in category: futurism

Scientists working in the Amazon rainforest have discovered a new species of snake, rumored to be the biggest in the world.

A team from the University of Queensland traveled to the Ecuadorian Amazon to search for the previously undocumented northern green anaconda (Eunectes akayima), following an invitation from the Waorani people to observe anacondas “rumoured to be the largest in existence,” according to the scientists.

The team joined the hunters on a 10-day expedition to the Bameno region of Baihuaeri Waorani Territory, before paddling down the river system to “find several anacondas lurking in the shallows, lying in wait for prey,” Professor Bryan Fry, a biologist from the University of Queensland, who led the team, said in a statement.

NASA seeks volunteers for a paid, yearlong simulated Mars mission

Posted by in categories: military, space

The agency says applicants must have a master’s degree with STEM qualifications and experience in the field, or a minimum of 1,000 hours piloting an aircraft or the requisite military experience. A bachelor of science degree in a STEM field also may be considered, NASA said.

“What we are looking for in this call is everyday civilians who are very astronaut-like to be research participants for us,” Bell said.

Compensation for participating in the mission is available, according to NASA, but an exact salary will be provided during the candidate screening process.
