To look through space is to look through time, so getting a glimpse of the early days of the universe is a matter of peering deeper and deeper into space. Now, astronomers from MIT and Arizona State University have peered right back to the "Cosmic Dawn" – the time when the first stars were beginning to fire up – by picking up an extremely faint radio signal that marks the earliest evidence of
it's like 1964, but with smartphone connectivity. The post little bluetooth speaker carries on the radical dream of radio caroline appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
If an electronic device containing sensitive information were to fall into the wrong hands, it would be good if there were a way of remotely disabling it. That's why scientists from Cornell University and Honeywell Aerospace have developed a method of vaporizing electronic circuits, without laying a hand on the actual device...Continue Reading Circuits self-destruct in response to radio waves
As consumer drones have become more commonplace, so too have concerns that owners might be tempted to use them for snooping. Researchers have now developed a way to uncover such activity, coming up with a way to intercept a drone's radio signals and tell whether it's been filming things that it shouldn't...Continue Reading Intercepting radio signals can reveal if a drone is spying on youCateg
Incredibly powerful but gone in a flash, mysterious signals known as Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs) are regularly detected in all corners of the sky. A repeating signal known as FRB 121102 was already the weirdest one out there, but now an international team of astronomers has found that this oddball is even odder than previously thought. The radio waves from FRB 121102 are being "twisted" to an ex
One of the world's most powerful radio telescopes is back online months after sustaining hurricane damage. The 1,000-ft (305-m) Arecibo Observatory only received minor structural damage when Hurricane Maria made landfall on the island of Puerto Rico on September 20, but the commercial electrical grid needed to power the giant antenna was only recently re-established. Though it resumed radio o
Someday, patients may have small tags placed on their clothing when they enter a hospital or doctor's office waiting room. By the time they actually get tended to, their vital signs will already be known. If so, it'll be thanks to research currently being conducted at Cornell University...Continue Reading Radio tags made to monitor vital signsCategory: MedicalTags: Cornell University

Assembly of a new giant Canadian radio telescope that has no moving parts yet is capable of scanning half the sky in a single day has been completed. The Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME) at Kaleden, British Columbia is composed of four 100-m (330-ft)-long metal troughs covering an area the size of five NHL hockey rinks and is capable of pairing with supercomputers to cre
Fast Radio Bursts (FRB) have puzzled astronomers ever since they were first detected about 10 years ago. Coming in from all corners of space, these strong but extremely short-lived signals can't be explained by any known celestial object, and now the mystery has deepened even further. Normally, FRBs fire off once and aren't heard from again, but one outlier has been particularly chatty over t is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
