Can water reach minus 263 degrees Celsius without turning into ice? Yes it can, say researchers, if it is confined in nanometer-scale lipid channels.

The Orderly Chaos Of Black Holes

January 15, 2019 Syndicated 0

During the formation of a black hole a bright burst of energetic light is produced called a gamma-ray burst. Researchers have built the POLAR instrument to analyze GRBs. The first results reveal that high energy photons coming from GRBs are neither completely chaotic, nor completely organized, but a mixture of the two.

How The Brain Enables Us To Rapidly Focus Attention

December 31, 2018 Syndicated 0

Researchers have discovered a key mechanism in the brain that may underlie our ability to rapidly focus attention. Our brains are continuously bombarded with information from the senses, yet our level of vigilance to such input varies, allowing us to selectively focus on one conversation and not another.

Researchers Develop 128Mb STT-MRAM With World’s Fastest Write Speed For Embedded Memory

December 28, 2018 Syndicated 0

A research team has successfully developed 128Mb-density STT-MRAM (spin-transfer torque magnetoresistive random access memory) with a write speed of 14 ns for use in embedded memory applications, such as cache in IOT and AI. This is currently the world’s fastest write speed for embedded memory application with a density over 100Mb and will pave the way for the mass-production of large capacity STT-MRAM.

Saturn Is Losing Its Rings At ‘Worst-Case-Scenario’ Rate

December 27, 2018 Syndicated 0

New NASA research confirms that Saturn is losing its iconic rings at the maximum rate estimated from Voyager 1 & 2 observations made decades ago. The rings are being pulled into Saturn by gravity as a dusty rain of ice particles under the influence of Saturn’s magnetic field.

Engineers Fly First-Ever Plane With No Moving Parts (VIDEO)

November 24, 2018 Syndicated 0

MIT engineers have built and flown the first-ever plane with no moving parts. Instead of propellers or turbines, the light aircraft is powered by an “ionic wind” — a silent but mighty flow of ions that is produced aboard the plane, and that generates enough thrust to propel the plane over a sustained, steady flight.
