Full-scale cislunar habitat prototype to be built from old Space Shuttle cargo container

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 00:19:15 +0000

(image)

In a mix of the old and the new, Lockheed Martin is recycling a Space Shuttle cargo container to create a prototype deep space habitat for NASA. The full-scale experimental module to be built at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida will be used to test technologies to provide astronauts with a safe living space that can operate autonomously when there is no one on board.

(image)

The European Space Agency's LISA Pathfinder satellite was shut down this week, after 16 months of service in the hunt for gravitational waves. But this is only the beginning: the Pathfinder satellite was a testbed for technology that will eventually be used in the main LISA mission, which is set to become the largest gravitational wave observatory ever built.

Dunkirk and the rebirth of 70mm film

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 06:56:56 +0000

(image)

Christopher Nolan's war epic Dunkirk is currently rolling out the widest 70mm release of any film in 25 years. With digital cameras and projectors dominating the film industry Nolan is one of several celluloid purists working in Hollywood today. With Dunkirk he has doubled down on his devotion to celluloid shooting most of the film not only on film but on large-format IMAX film stock. The resulting feature is being screened in a variety formats around the world but Nolan has suggested the ideal way to watch his opus is in IMAX theaters on 15/70 IMAX film.

Scientists discover "angel particle" that is its own antiparticle

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 06:03:11 +0000

(image)

Every fundamental particle in the universe has an antiparticle, which has the same mass but the opposite charge. If a particle should ever meet its antiparticle, the two would annihilate each other in a flash of energy. But it's long been theorized that there's an exception to the rule, with certain particles that are actually their own antiparticles. Now, scientists from Stanford and the University of California have found the first strong evidence for this type of particle, which they dub the "angel particle."

If you've ever been served a delicious dish but were too shy to ask for the recipe, MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) may have the answer. Working with the Qatar Computing Research Institute (QCRI), a CSAIL team has been developing an artificial intelligence system called Pic2Recipe that can predict the ingredients in a dish from an image, and even suggest recipes for similar dishes.

Lotus evolves the Evora into its most powerful production car ever

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 03:20:18 +0000

(image)

By now, the formula for Lotus special editions is well known: add a bit of power, shed a bit of weight, slap some stickers on the side and voila, you've got a car fanboys and cashed-up collectors will be clamoring to buy. Thankfully, the Evora GT430 takes things a bit further than that. Lotus has treated the car to a comprehensive makeover, and the result is a much more focused beast than the base Evora.

Kalashnikov’s new autonomous weapons and the “Terminator conundrum”

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 03:09:38 +0000

(image)

Earlier this month, the Russian weapons manufacturer Kalashnikov Group made a low-key announcement with frightening implications. The company revealed it had developed a range of combat robots that are fully automated and used artificial intelligence to identify targets and make independent decisions. The revelation rekindled the simmering, and controversial, debate over autonomous weaponry and asked the question, at what point do we hand control of lethal weapons over to artificial intelligence?

Work has begun on the first Type 26 frigate for the Royal Navy. Today at BAE Systems' Glasgow shipyard, the British Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallow pressed the button that started the cutting of the first steel for the City-class warship now named HMS Glasgow. The first of eight Type 26s, it's expected to enter service sometime in the mid-2020s as an advanced anti-submarine warfare ship to defend the Navy's ballistic missile submarines and aircraft carriers.

Humans enter a Vulcan-like mind meld when conversing

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 21:25:11 +0000

(image)

In the Star Trek universe, Vulcans would sometimes bust out one of their most impressive abilities: the mind meld. In this maneuver, the Vulcan would form a mental bond with someone else and the two would sync up to the point that they basically shared one consciousness. Researchers at the Basque Centre on Cognition, Brain, and Language (BCBL) in Spain have now shown that humans do something a bit similar – just by having a conversation.

One key front in the battle against Alzheimer's is early detection of the disease. Breakthroughs in this area could open up more treatment options that are less imposing on the patient, and researchers have just reported a promising advance in the form of a blood test that could reveal signs of Alzheimer's long before more obvious symptoms appear.

3D-printed nylon microphone seeks heavy metal singer

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 14:17:39 +0000

Challenged to design and 3D-print an unusual microphone, Olaf Diegel of ODD Guitars decided to create something that a player of his Spider guitar might use. The Skeletor that came out of the SLS machine is a perfect stylistic match for the voice of heavy metal himself, Ozzy Osbourne, or equally suited to the king of voodoo rock, Screaming Jay Hawkins.

"Empowering" robots could replace the Three Laws of Robotics

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 08:45:21 +0000

(image)

Isaac Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics are versatile and simple enough that they still persist 75 years after he first coined them. But our current world, where robots and AI agents are cleaning our houses, driving our cars and working alongside us, is vastly different than even the most forward-thinking sci-fi writers could imagine. To make sure the guidelines for programming artificial intelligence cast as wide a net as possible, experts from the University of Hertfordshire have detailed a new system they call "Empowerment."

Gravitational anomaly from the beginning of the universe observed on Earth

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 07:16:00 +0000

(image)

When the universe was just a few microseconds old, it existed as a strange soupy substance called quark-gluon plasma (QGP), which exhibits a whole host of unusual quantum effects. Now, for the first time, IBM researchers have observed a gravitational anomaly in earthly materials, which was previously only thought to occur in QGP in deep space or just after the Big Bang.
