Inexpensive and compact CubeSats are great for certain missions, but their simplicity can limit their applications. For one, most of them don't pack their own propulsion systems, instead hitchhiking into orbit aboard other satellite launches. Now, to make CubeSats more maneuverable, a team from Purdue University has developed a system that would allow the mini satellites to safely propel the

A planet with an atmosphere where water molecules glow is the strongest evidence yet of the first stratosphere discovered on a world outside the Solar System. Using data from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, an international team of scientists led by the University of Exeter has found that the upper atmosphere of exoplanet WASP-121b is as hot as boiling iron, indicating that it's stratified in
When they find their way into landfill, electronic waste like phones and computers can wreak havoc on groundwater supplies, contaminating them with toxic heavy metals like lead and mercury. Scientists at Rice University have come up with new kind of filter made from carbon nanotubes and quartz fibers claimed to cleanse water of 99 percent of these types of metals. What's more, they can be was
The robotics researchers at Switzerland's École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) have produced some truly impressive (and creepy) animal-inspired droids over the years. Following in the footsteps of the team's robotic turtles, grasshoppers and crocodiles comes the Envirobot, a robotic eel built to snake through contaminated water to find the source of pollution...Continue Reading Rob
