Water Harvesting from Air Could Help Deal with Water Crisis in Some Regions: MIT

Water Harvesting from Air Could Help Deal with Water Crisis in Some Regions

Water Harvesting from air sounds like a difficult idea to implement but a research team from MIT and UC Berkeley has successfully developed a prototype water harvester which can collect water from air with as low at 20-30 percent humidity. The technique can help in dealing with water crisis in many regions across the world and research team added that water harvested with this technique is pure and drinkable. The research team has presented a device based on porous metal-organic framework-801 [Zr6O4(OH)4(fumarate)6] which is powered by natural sunlight.

NASA working on LASER-based high speed space internet

As existing communication systems suffer from a number of drawbacks like slower speeds and overloading of the bandwidth, NASA is working on a new technology that would enable high-speed movement of internet data in space.

The U.S. space agency’s Laser Communications Relay Demonstration communication satellite encodes data onto a beam of light and transmits it anywhere from 10 to 100 times faster than currently-used radio-based space communications.

Science-slashing budget will make America weak, sick & stupid: Neil deGrasse Tyson

Science-slashing budget will make America weak, sick & stupid: physicist says

President Donald Trump’s proposed budget cuts to climate science, health and the arts would make the United States “weak,” “sick” and “stupid,” renowned physicist Neil deGrasse Tyson said.

Tyson also alleged that Trump was trying to transform the EPA into the “Environmental Destruction Agency,” which would thwart Earth’s life-support systems.

He further added that ignoring climate change would allow glaciers to melt at a faster rate, flooding the world’s coastal cities in particular.

LHC detector receives major upgrade

LHC detector receives major upgrade

A major upgrade in one of the Large Hadron Collider’s detectors combined with a recent boost in its power promises to make the atom-smasher even better at solving the sub-atomic mysteries of the universe.

The LHC, which is situated at the Switzerland-France, has been smashing atoms with one another for nearly a decade.

Engineers working at the LHC have recently swapped so-called “pixel tracker” in the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS), which is a major experiment along the collider’s oval.

MIT Study Checks Impact of Volkswagen Diesel Engine Emissions Scandal on Health

MIT Study Checks Impact of Volkswagen Diesel Engine Emissions Scandal on Health

Volkswagen management concealed the real emissions of its diesel vehicles sold in the United States and European markets and a new study conducted by MIT researchers has evaluated the impact of diesel vehicle emissions on public health. The research paper has based the findings on nearly 11 million diesel vehicles sold worldwide between year 2008 and 2015. As Volkswagen vehicles didn’t follow the environment protection rules and their emissions were higher than claimed by the company, the impact on public health has been estimated by MIT researchers.
