Japanese Research Project aims to Create Earth Like Artificial Gravity

Posted by in categories: habitats, space travel

Researchers at Kyoto University have joined forces with contractor Kajima Corp. to develop gravity-defying habitats required for use on the Moon and Mars, complete with their own transportation system.

The researcher’s ambitious idea also comes with a space train that is set to function like trains on Earth while at the same time generating artificial gravity.

The Enemy of my Enemy is AI

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

Professors complain that some students are turning in papers written by ChatGPT and other AI’s. This means the whole paradigm of how we teach students has got to change. And fast.

The potential of our brains is being wasted by the old paradigm of education and how we’ve been mechanized by The Industrial Age.

The qualia it takes to do what tradesmen like welders and mechanics and plummer’s do cannot be easily automated or coded and will soon be at a premium. Professionals like doctors and attorneys and professors, for that matter can easily be replaced by AI.

Single-Cell-Initiated Transsynaptic Tracing method was able to demonstrate, for the first time that the convergence of different ganglion cell types in the monocular and binocular combination modes occurs at the LGN (lateral geniculate nucleus) of the thalamus

Posted by in category: futurism

This suggests that the visual thalamus not only relays but also combines different retinal channels to generate new visual channels.

Wikipedia and other sources say the arc converter, sometimes called the arc transmitter, was invented in 1903 by Danish engineer Valdemar Poulsen

Posted by in category: futurism

The arc converter used an electric arc to convert direct current electricity into radio frequency alternating current.

It is a fact that Nikola Tesla invented the arc converter and demonstrated it in a lecture given before the Franklin Institute and National Light Association in 1893.

World-first ‘super’ magnet sparks nuclear fusion breakthrough

Posted by in categories: innovation, nuclear energy

A UK firm has announced a world-first set of “super” magnets that can be used for testing nuclear fusion power plants.

Tokamak Energy said the Demo4 magnet has a magnetic field strength that is nearly a million times stronger than the Earth’s magnetic field, making it capable of confining and controlling the extremely hot plasma created during the fusion process.

Nuclear fusion has been hailed as the “holy grail” of clean energy, with scientists working on the technology since the 1950s.

Cancer Conundrum Solved: Researchers Unravel a Population of ‘Cheating’ Cells

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, engineering, health

Scientists at the University of Connecticut Health, Yale University, and Johns Hopkins University have discovered that certain cancer cells possess the ability to evade limitations caused by oxygen deprivation, enabling the cancer cells to continue to grow.

The findings were recently published in the journal Cell Systems. The research was led by Kshitiz, an assistant professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, in collaboration with scientists Chi V. Dang from Johns Hopkins and Andre Levchenko from Yale.

Nearly a decade ago, the researchers observed a strange phenomenon while looking at cancer cells under hypoxia—or a lack of oxygen.
