Team members of the Miniature Radio Frequency (Mini-RF) instrument on NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) spacecraft found new evidence that the Moon's subsurface might be richer in metals, like iron and titanium, than researchers thought.
Tiny, 3D printed cubes of plastic, with intricate fractal voids built into them, have proven to be effective at dissipating shockwaves, potentially leading to new types of lightweight armor and structural materials effective against explosions and im
It's up, up, and away for Space Perspective, the latest spaceflight startup set on sending tourists to the stars. The company officially opened its Launch Operations Center at NASA's Kennedy Space Center last month.
The resolution amplification out at the gravitational lens would be mammoth compared to large telescopes near to Earth. There is a need for both. Having 100 meter or multi-kilometer telescopes on the moon or at LaGrange points would be useful for low
Extreme metamaterial ceramic solar sails survive a close pass of our sun to reach speeds of 60-70AU per year which is over 0.1% of light speed. Theis propel low mass spacecraft using a dive to extreme proximity to the sun (just 2-5 solar radii).
Perovskite is emerging as a promising material for solar cells, but it has some durability problems. Now, engineers have developed a new electrode that could make them more stable, using a protective layer of "graphene armor."
Plans to start mining the Moon as early as 2025 became more attractive this week after a US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) team found evidence that the Earth's natural satellite may, underneath its surface, be richer in metals
Containing the electromagnetic radiation generated by electronic components is a key consideration for designers of electronic devices, but today's metal-based shielding materials have their downsides.
The value of movie memorabilia is invariably linked to the importance of the film it comes from, with key props from the greatest films of all time always bringing auction prices commensurate with their time in the spotlight.
Check out the two awesome mobile chicken coops over at Beechgrove Farm in Seymour Tennessee. One is for egg layers, that has rain water collection and a great egg collecting system. The other is for broilers and very inexpensive and simple to make. G
Even though bees had a 'very good year,' with the second smallest winter hive loss in 14 years, according to an annual survey released in March, agriculture experts continue to look for alternative pollination techniques. And, just in time for Na
Learn how to make biochar and its many beneficial uses including greatly enhancing soil life and fertility. Discover innovative ways to maximize its uses for dynamically carbon negative farming and gardening.
Gordon Ramsay Hamburger recipe is an art, by using a special Gordon Ramsay burger blend of, brisket, chuck sirloin, and short rib ground beef and along with freshly grilled onion slices that add such an important component in building the perfect bur
A solid-state battery, where the liquid electrolyte that carries the charge is swapped out for a solid alternative, promises a number of performance benefits over today's solutions, but there are a few problems to solve first.
Hydrogen's impressive energy density offers some compelling advantages that could see it make a huge difference in the electric aviation and eVTOL sectors, as well as in renewable energy, where it's a lightweight and transportable
Dexamethasone, a cheap steroid, reduced deaths by one-third in ventilated patients and by one fifth in other patients receiving oxygen only. There was no benefit among those patients who did not require respiratory support.
At last year's CES in Las Vegas, Waydoo launched a relatively cheap electric foil board called the Flyer, which went on sale late in 2019. Now the company has hit Kickstarter with a cheaper follow up called the Flyer One.
Heating and cooling systems are some of the biggest consumers of energy, so finding ways to passively cool buildings and electronics could be a huge saver of money and the environment. A new photonic film could be just the ticket, made with a micro-s
SpaceX could use the electric skateboard of the Cybertruck to build all the of vehicles that they need for a lunar mining operation. About twenty-five to thirty cybertrucks could be delivered to the moon with every SpaceX Starship.
Radio waves travel poorly through the water, which makes it difficult for divers or submersibles to wirelessly transmit information to the surface. Scientists are trying to change that, though, by developing an underwater version of Wi-Fi.
