A Star Spinning Fast Enough To “Fly Apart”

Star Spinning Fast

After its conception 50 years ago, a team of astronomers were able to observe a fast-rotating giant star emitting polarized light. First predicted by an Indian-American astrophysicist S. Chandrasekhar, polarization in stars was a un-tested phenomena, until now. Based on these findings, the team has also accurately calculated the spinning rate of unbelievably fast revolving star Regulus. ...

Mobiles Phones Can Soon Monitor Stress and Detect Breathing Problems

Mobiles Phones Can Soon Monitor Stress

The new software developed by optical society allows low-cost, portable, thermal cameras (usually attached to smartphones) to track how fast a person is breathing, and monitor his/her stress level. It could be used to detect breathing problems in older people, or who have sleep apnea, or small children at risk for SIDS (sudden infant death ...

Why Apple Doesn’t Make Their Products In US? | The Actual Reason

Why Apple Doesn't Make Their Products In US

Almost everyone can figure it out, right? It’s obviously the cheap labor! But wait a second here, is it the only reason why a multi billion dollar company like Apple is doing most of its manufacturing outside the United States? Well, actually there is more. Over the years, many news websites have covered this issue ...

Quantum Machine Learning: Current Status and Future Prospects

Quantum Machine Learning

Young children learn languages by detecting different patterns. Throughout the learning process, they try to find patterns in specific data set, which help them discover and optimize grammar structures for better language acquisition. Just like that, online translators use machine learning algorithms for optimizing their translation engine in order to provide better and understandable results. ...

Scientists Create DNA Robots To Pick And Sort Molecules

dna nano robot

Caltech researchers have created an autonomous molecular machine that can execute operations at nanoscale. This DNA nanorobot can walk around surface, pick up some specific molecules and drop them off in predetermined locations. Like electromechanical robots that are sent off to other planets to study their surroundings, these molecular robots are developed to explore tiny locations where human cannot ...

26+ Outrageous Optical Illusion That’ll Amaze You

Spinning Silhouette

The human brain is designed to do things that even machines cannot do, from solving complex mathematical equations to making important decisions. But sometimes even our powerful brain gets fooled easily. How? As we know our brain uses several human senses to judge something and react according to them. So technically, it just takes a pair ...

20 Most Stunning Images Captured By Cassini Spacecraft

The Cassini mission was a collaboration between NASA, ESA and ASI (Italian Space Agency) to send a spacecraft to study Saturn and its moons and rings. Launched on 15th October, 1997, the spacecraft was active in space for over 18 years, of which it spent 13 years orbiting Saturn (entered in Saturn’s orbit on 1st ...

Is Asteroid Mining Really important For Our Plans to Colonize The Red Planet?

Over the last decade or so Mars has been the center of attraction for space agencies and private companies. Private firms like SpaceX have even openly expressed their desire to one colonize the red planet. But these planned expeditions to the planet have delayed for certain reasons. Many personalities including the veteran astronaut Buzz Aldrin ...

An Extremely Hot Planet That Consumes All The Visible Light

Extremely Hot Planet

While looking for planets with life sustaining qualities, we have just found a planet where we do not want to go. An international research team has recently discovered a distinctive characteristic of an extensively studied exoplanet known as WASP-12b. The study shows that the extra-solar planet reflects absolutely no light which is making it appear as a pitch ...

A New Technique To Make Nuclear Fusion More Powerful

Nuclear Fusion More Powerful

Scientists at MIT develop a new technique to make plasma fuel hot enough in order to produce significant nuclear fusion power. While using nuclear fusion to power offices and homes might still be a way off, this new plasma marks a big step towards fusion power. It has brought limitless (almost) clean energy one step closer ...

Researcher Have Connected A Human Brain To The Internet | Brainternet

human brain connected to internet

Biomedical engineers at Wits University in Johannesburg, link human brain to the internet in real time. They have named the project “Brainternet”. It streams brainwaves on the internet, turning the brain into a IoT node on the World Wide Web. IoT stands for Internet of Things – linking any machine (having off and on switch) to the ...

A Study Might Just Have Solved the Mystery of Origin of DNA

Mystery of Origin of DNA

A team of researchers at the University of York might just have solved the mystery of the origin of DNA. The team showed that how molecules from the interstellar origin, brought here by meteors could likely be building blocks of DNA. Their study found that amino nitrates, along with molecules found in interstellar ice prompt ...
