Like The Avengers of outer space, an all-star cast of satellites and spacecraft have teamed up from across the Solar System for a common goal. After a coronal mass ejection (CME) erupted from the Sun in October 2014, its journey through space was tracked by Curiosity, Rosetta, Cassini, New Horizons and possibly even Voyager 2, allowing astronomers to study the phenomenon in much greater detai
When Volkswagen released this Kombi-style electric microbus as a concept earlier this year, the world yawned and said "wake us when you build the damn thing." Well folks, set your alarms for 2022, when the I.D. Buzz is planned for release in Kombi-style microbus and commercial delivery van versions. ..Continue Reading Volkswagen's I.D. Buzz autonomous electric Kombi van gets production nodCat
With the rise of antibiotic-resistant "superbugs," the pressure is on for scientists to develop new molecules, materials and methods to keep us from returning to a dark age of medicine, where even the most basic of infections becomes potentially lethal. Now, researchers from Vanderbilt University have found a new class of antibiotic hiding in plain sight: human breast milk...Continue Reading
Presently, for a definitive diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease, doctors have to perform a PET scan of patients' brains. Not only is it expensive, but it also requires the patient to be injected with radioactive tracers. Soon, however, a simple eye scan may be all that's required – and it could catch the disease sooner than ever before...Continue Reading Alzheimer's may be detected early, via ey
NASA's next-generation orbital tracking and communications network has been completed, with the sixth and final Tracking and Data Relay Satellite (TDRS) blasted into orbit on Friday. The Boeing-built TDRS-M lifted off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida atop a United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V rocket. It is reported to be in good health and will enter service next year after a
For many people, adding anything to a single malt whisky is close to sacrilege, but it's generally acknowledged that adding a drop or two of water to lesser blends enhances the flavor. The question is, why? At Sweden's Linnaeus University, researchers Björn Karlsson and Ran Friedman have come up with an answer from the chemistry of the dram...Continue Reading Why whisky tastes better with a w
In 2015, a video showing a semi-automatic handgun being fired from a custom-built drone went viral, raising concerns for authorities, including the FAA. The development of such a DIY device was only a matter of time, as was the commercialization of the technology. Now Florida-based startup Duke Robotics has unveiled the TIKAD, a custom-built multirotor that can carry and fire various military
Just in case you weren't aware, the United States will be experiencing a solar eclipse next week. There are plenty of ways to check it out, including using special glasses, via a pinhole projection, or even online. Now reclining in a car can be added to the list courtesy of the Volvo XC60 Panoramic Moonroof Eclipse Viewer...Continue Reading Volvo's magnetic moonroof attachment to enable in-ca
Asteroids whizz past Earth on a regular basis, and thankfully they're usually only a few meters wide. But next month we're due for a close encounter with a monster space rock measuring 4.4 km (2.7 mi) across, making it the largest near-Earth object (NEO) to come this close to the planet since NASA began tracking them almost 20 years ago...Continue Reading 3-mile asteroid is the largest Earth-
When Nikola Motors started advertising outrageous specs for its Zero all-electric side-by-side, we figured there was no way those specs would survive the journey to market. A 520-hp figure may sound plenty normal for sports car, but it's pretty out there for a side-by-side. However, not only have the Zero's off-the-charts specs survived as Nikola prepares for production, some have actually gr
