Co-working company WeWork, which recently rebranded as The We Company, has opened a store and public workspace in New York City and is exploring more real-estate ventures. Read more
roosegaarde continues to investigate creative solutions for the 8.1 million kilos of space waste. The post daan roosegaarde wants to upcycle space waste into shooting stars and mars habitats appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
To help power American's deep space probes, The Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has automated key steps in the process to make plutonium-238 (PU-238) nuclear fuel for radiothermal generators (RTG). By turning over the production of neptunium oxide-aluminum pellets to machines, the agency says that it will increase fuel production to 1.5 kg (3.3 lb) per year by 2025... Continue Reading
A team of researchers at the University of Central Florida (UCF) and Honeybee Robotics of Pasadena, California have developed a prototype steam-powered space probe. This may seem like a great leap backwards, but by using water as a propellant, the World Is Not Enough (WINE) spacecraft can operate indefinitely by topping off on ice gathered while visiting asteroids and other bodies to fuel
In June 2018, a bright light burst into the skies over the Northern Hemisphere. At a glance it looked like any other supernova, but on closer inspection this thing turned out to be far weirder. Officially known as AT2018cow (but quickly nicknamed "The Cow"), astronomers now believe the ATLAS survey's twin telescopes in Hawaii captured an unprecedented look at the birth of a black hole or a
the project incorporates large sweeping roofs over the vast spaces which aim to mirror the contours of the landscape. The post UAD studio fuses tradition with contemporary design for multi-purpose space in china appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
It almost goes without saying that space is a pretty harsh environment. A NASA twin study showed life in space changes gene expression in humans, and tests have shown that it even stresses seedlings. Now researchers have examined what effects that environment might have on bacteria, and found that the bugs are mutating in response – but that probably isn't cause for concern... Continue Rea
set upon a raw concrete skeleton the curvature of wooden fixtures delineates the space, forming a large infrastructure which navigates the interior. The post torafu architects uses curved wooden framework to define space of tokyo aesop interior appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
NASA is poised to send larger and larger telescopes into space over the next couple of decades and a team of researchers at MIT is working out how to use CubeSats to keep them fixed on target. Using lasers, the bread-loaf sized spacecraft will serve as artificial guide stars to act as points of reference and make sure the giant scopes are tracking and focusing properly... Continue Reading
Polish firm Biuro Toprojekt's aptly-named Kindergarten makes good use of an awkward plot. Bringing to mind Vo Trong Nghia's Farming Kindergarten, the building offers additional space for the kids to run around outside with a play area on its roof. ..
