Search results for life

Researchers at the University of Warwick have demonstrated a new "smart grid" system whereby energy from idle electric vehicle (EV) batteries could by pumped back into the grid to power large buildings, while still having enough power to complete the vehicle's daily journeys. The study also demonstrated that this approach could actually increase the overall longevity of the vehicle's lithium-
When scientists look for extraterrestrial life, they typically turn their focus upwards, to planets like Mars, moons like Enceladus and exoplanets far beyond our own solar system. But for Lara Rowe, an assistant professor of chemistry at Valparaiso University in Indiana, the search begins in the lab...Continue Reading One Big Question: How might we find the building blocks of extraterrestrial

While the batteries that power modern electric vehicles typically last eight or ten years, after that they still retain a valuable capacity that can be repurposed for other means. One carmaker with a keen interest in the area is Renault, who has just announced a partnership with UK company Powervault that will see batteries from its electric vehicles put to use in energy storage systems for t
A long time ago, on a planet not too far away, there was a lake – and not just any lake, but one that could finally shed some light on that $64 million question: Was there ever life on Mars? New findings based on data from NASA's Curiosity rover mission reveal that the Gale Crater lake not only had properties similar to lakes on Earth, but that it also had all the trappings that would have ma
While it looks like a barren wasteland today, Mars was once much more friendly towards life, and one of the main goals of the Curiosity rover mission was to determine if the Red Planet has ever harbored living organisms. The project has already discovered that the rover's landing site, Gale Crater, was once home to an ancient lake, and now a team at Los Alamos National Laboratory has found "h
Back in 2012, Google purchased Nik Software. The following year, Nik was rebranded as “Nik Collection by Google” and its price was slashed. Then in early 2016, the collection of Photoshop plug-ins was made available for free. This was great news for photographers looking for free photo editing software, but it did concern me about the possibility of future updates. At the time, Google
