Can Bees Be Trained to Sniff Out Cancer?

29/12/2013 13:49
December 13, 2013 Some insects, such as bees, have a sense of smell so acutely sensitive that they can locate the faintest of odors in a room, even if it consists of only a few molecules. But scientists are particularly intrigued by the fact that these bugs can even be...

Roboticists Create Rover To Move And Drill On The Moon

29/12/2013 13:46
 Engineers and robiticists created a robot to explore the moon. Running on the same amount of power as a 100-watt light bulb the rover uses heat from radiation to support its sensors, movement, and drill. It can move about five inches a second and work in harsh conditions to analyze the...

Producing Electricity On the Moon at Night

29/12/2013 13:43
Scientists from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia and other international collaborators have proposed a system of mirrors, processed lunar soil and a heat engine to provide energy to vehicles and crew during the lunar night. This would preclude the need for batteries and nuclear power sources...

New Data Compression Method Reduces Big-Data Bottleneck; Outperforms, Enhances JPEG

29/12/2013 13:40
In creating an entirely new way to compress data, a team of researchers from the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science has drawn inspiration from physics and the arts. The result is a new data compression method that outperforms existing techniques, such as JPEG for images,...

Companion's Comets the Key to Curious Exoplanet System?

29/12/2013 13:40
The nearby star Fomalhaut A hosts the most famous planetary system outside our own Solar System, containing both an exoplanet and a spectacular ring of comets. Today, an international team of astronomers announced a new discovery with the Herschel Space Observatory that has made this system even...

Graphene-Based Field-Effect Transistor With Semiconducting Nature Opens Up Practical Use in Electronics

29/12/2013 13:37
 UNIST announced a method for the mass production of boron/nitrogen co-doped graphene nanoplatelets, which led to the fabrication of a graphene-based field-effect transistor (FET) with semiconducting nature. This opens up opportunities for practical use in electronic devices.   A...
