15 Most Earth-Like Planets That Could Sustain Human And Alien Life

TRAPPIST-1 e | Earth-like planets

Discovering the first alien planet is a dream for most astronomers. With today’s advanced technology, finding new exoplanets is a common thing, but it takes something special to discover planets which bear more Earth-like characteristics and have similar planetary settings. To discover an Earth-like exoplanet, astronomers look for few essential things. The first and foremost ...

New Self-Driving Technology Can Navigate Without 3D Maps

New Self-Driving Technology

The new self-driving vehicle technology can navigate in rural areas without using 3D maps.  It combines local system with open street map for navigating individual road segments.   The mapless driving framework robustly tracks road boundaries using LiDAR sensors. Existing autonomous vehicles require 3D maps to navigate. That’s the reason self-driving cars can’t actually drive themselves in ...

Neutron Stars Can Cool By The Direct Urca Process

The direct Urca process to cool Neutron Stars

Researchers observed a neutron star of binary system MXB 1659-29.  They found an evidence of the fastest neutrino-emission phenomena, known as the direct Urca process, through which a neutron star cools. They concluded that the direct Urca process occurs in approximately 1 percent of the stellar core.  Neutron stars are the smallest and densest stars, formed in ...

Quantum Cascade Laser Frequency Combs Could Be The Future of WiFi

Quantum Cascade Laser Frequency Combs

Scientists developed a technique to generate terahertz frequencies through an infrared frequency comb in a quantum cascade laser. Data traveling at this band can move more than hundred times as fast as existing wireless networks.  This is the first time someone has demonstrated that a laser is capable of acting as quadrature modulator.  Cellular data and ...

Neuroscientists Kept Pig Brains Alive With No Body Parts

Scientists kept Pig Brains Alive

Neuroscientists have developed a technique to keep pig’s brain alive without body for up to 36 hours.  The technique, named BrainEx, involves attaching a brain to tubes that circulate artificial blood throughout the vessels of the brain. It provides a new way to investigate intact brains in detail. A team of neuroscientists at Yale University ...
