Investigating the Origins of the Crab Nebula With NASA’s Webb

Posted by in category: cosmology

New data revises our view of this unusual supernova explosion. A team of scientists used NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope to parse the composition of the Crab Nebula, a supernova remnant located 6,500 light-years away in the constellation Taurus. With the telescope’s MIRI (Mid-Infrared Instrument) and NIRCam (Near-Infrared Camera), the team gathered data that is […].

HumanPlus: Robot that learns boxing, playing piano by watching people

Posted by in categories: futurism, robotics/AI

The researchers state that HumanPlus needs 40 hours of human movement data to learn a task and then carry it out step by step. Moreover, it can shadow humans using its camera and then reproduce the actions in real-time.

The humanoid has been built with Unitree’s H1 robot as a base with hands from Inspire-Robots and wrists from another company. The final specimen is five feet nine inches tall.

Mathematicians find odd shapes that roll like a wheel in any dimension

Posted by in category: mathematics

Not content with shapes in two or three dimensions, mathematicians like to explore objects in any number of spatial dimensions. Now they have discovered shapes of constant width in any dimension, which roll like a wheel despite not being round.

Baidu Self-Driving Taxi Launches in China

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, transportation

The launch of the RT6 was announced at the company’s Apollo Day, held in Wuhan, in Hubei province.

The vehicle, which is made by strategic partner Jiangling Motors, was first unveiled in 2022 but is now finally ready to be put into service. Around 1,000 are expected to be deployed in Wuhan alone by the end of 2024.

The all-electric model measures 15.7 feet long – very similar to a Tesla Model 3 – and comes with a spacious cabin for four passengers.

Physicists find a new way to represent π

Posted by in categories: particle physics, quantum physics

While investigating how string theory can be used to explain certain physical phenomena, scientists at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) have stumbled upon on a new series representation for the irrational number π. It provides an easier way to extract π from calculations involved in deciphering processes like the quantum scattering of high-energy particles.
