Singapore Airlines announces free Wi-Fi for all passengers

Posted by in categories: entertainment, internet

Passengers of Singapore Airlines can now stay connected to free internet at an altitude of 12,000 meters.

In simpler times, during a flight journey, one could switch off the cellular, read a good or a bad book, enjoy a glass of questionable wine, watch a movie in a different language using the in-flight entertainment system, or simply nod off. Or one could even dare to converse with a fellow passenger (gasp).

And now, more and more airlines have… More.

US at risk of losing AI edge to China, says Scale AI CEO

Posted by in categories: government, policy, robotics/AI

The US is at a critical moment and must invest more resources to stay ahead.

The U.S. is at risk of losing its edge to China in the race for artificial intelligence (AI), according to Alexandr Wang, the CEO of Scale AI. Wang was speaking at a summit organized by the company for government officials, Bloomberg.

Not only is… More.

Asexuality: The Insects that Stick With It

Posted by in category: sex

Year 2011 This is pretty interesting that insects reproduce asexually even for a long time in their species for instance some have done it for 2 million years 😀 Also this could lead to even humans asexual reproduce if properly done with crispr.

One hope of trying to understand why sex is so powerful and prevalent a mode of reproduction relies on the rare examples of animals that persist long-term without having sex. Now, several species of stick insects join that illustrious circle.

New Satellite Successfully Beams Power From Space

Posted by in categories: computing, satellites, solar power, sustainability

Solar power is the fastest-growing form of renewable energy and currently accounts for 3.6% of global electricity production today. This makes it the third largest source of the renewable energy market, followed by hydroelectric power and wind. These three methods are expected to grow exponentially in the coming decades, reaching 40% by 2035 and 45% by 2050. Altogether, renewables are expected to account for 90% of the energy market by mid-century, with solar accounting for roughly half. However, several technical challenges and issues need to be overcome for this transition to occur.

The main limiting factor for solar power is intermittency, meaning it can only collect power when sufficient sunlight is available. To address this, scientists have spent decades researching space-based solar power (SBSP), where satellites in orbit would collect power 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, without interruption. To develop the technology, researchers with the Space Solar Power Project (SSPP) at Caltech recently completed the first successful wireless power transfer using the Microwave Array for Power-transfer Low-orbit Experiment (MAPLE).

Engineers grow pancreatic “organoids” that mimic the real thing

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, engineering

Year 2021 😗😁

MIT engineers, in collaboration with scientists at Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute, have developed a new way to grow tiny replicas of the pancreas, using either healthy or cancerous pancreatic cells. Their new models could help researchers develop and test potential drugs for pancreatic cancer, which is currently one of the most difficult types of cancer to treat.

Using a specialized gel that mimics the extracellular environment surrounding the pancreas, the researchers were able to grow pancreatic “organoids,” allowing them to study the important interactions between pancreatic tumors and their environment. Unlike some of the gels now used to grow tissue, the new MIT gel is completely synthetic, easy to assemble and can be produced with a consistent composition every time.
