Forever Battery a compelling talking point at CES

Posted by in category: futurism

Well, this lead was impressive, coming from a tech watcher who if you read his articles regularly know that he does not swoon easily. Andrew Liszewski, Gizmodo. “After covering CES for 10 years, nothing I’ve seen at the show has me as excited about the future as Ossia’s wireless charging technology.”

Ossia has worked on something they call the Cota Forever Battery. We need little explanation to turn heads to fuller attention. They have worked on a battery powered wirelessly. The Forever Battery and its associated technology, dubbed Cota, created much interest at CES.

It’s all about a battery that may never need replacing.

A Device That Harvests Drinking Water Out Of Plain Air Just Won $1.5 Million

Posted by in categories: energy, sustainability

Two California designers have won a $1.5 million prize after building a shipping container that can harvest water from the air. David Hertz and Rich Groden were named the winners of the Water Abundance XPrize for their innovative creation, which can produce enough water to satisfy the needs of 100 people.

The competition, which began in 2016, asked designers to build a device that could extract at least 2,000 liters of water a day from the atmosphere while only using clean energy and costing no more than 2 cents a liter. Nearly 100 teams entered the challenge, which was eventually whittled down to two finalists. Hertz and Groden’s team, called Skysource/Skywater Alliance, won the prize because their invention “demonstrated the greatest ability to create decentralized access to water,” per a press release.

Now you can discover Daymet Daily Surface Weather Data, which includes precipitation, temperature, and other weather variables from 1980–2018 through the NASA Application for Extracting and Exploring Analysis Ready Samples (AρρEEARS) application!

About AppEEARS: AρρEEARS offers users a simple and efficient way to perform data access and transformation processes. By enabling users to subset data spatially, temporally, and by layer, the volume of data downloaded for analysis is greatly reduced. Sample requests submitted to AρρEEARS provide users with data values and associated quality data for a variety of remote sensing data products. Two types of sample requests are available: point samples of geographic coordinates or area samples of vector polygons. Interactive visualizations with summary statistics of the sample results are provided within the application to allow the user to preview and interact with their sample before downloading the data.

We submitted the Longevity Peace Prize, worth $5 million dollars to be awarded to any longevity activist(s) in the next 5 years who can get a major world government or the UN to declare “aging a disease” as a policy and to help reverse regulatory hurdles on life extension research. Hopefully, this early version of a prize may one day become reality. https://xprize.org/

Astronomers Discover ‘Extraordinary’ Black Hole That Is Warping Space-Time

Posted by in categories: cosmology, physics

Nearly 8,000 light-years away from Earth, astronomers have discovered a black hole that keeps rapidly swinging out jets of plasma clouds into space, according to a new study.

The black hole, known as V404 Cygni, doesn’t behave like others. The jets shoot out possibly within minutes of each other and in all different directions. And while the researchers admit that black holes are some of the most extreme objects in the universe, this one is different.

“This is one of the most extraordinary black hole systems I’ve ever come across,” study author James Miller-Jones said in a statement. Miller-Jones is also an associate professor at Curtin University’s International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research.
