SpaceX Launches Falcon 9 with CASSIOPE

SpaceX, the commercial space company of Elon Musk, has proved successful in launching a Falcon 9 rocket into space.

CASSIOPE, a Canadian Space Agency satellite, is on-board the rocket. It has been discovered that Cascade is part of payload of the satellite. Cascade is a prototype in lieu of a super-fast space-borne file-transfer system, which is somewhat a digital courier service.

NASA Seeking to Introduce 3D Printer for Astronauts

NASA Seeking to Introduce 3D Printer for Astronauts

NASA, the well-known US space agency, has been thinking of introducing a 3D printer in the coming year into space. The same would be the first of its kind to be used in space.

The aim of the printer would be to assist astronauts in developing zero-g or zero gravity spare parts and tools.

The report found that the printer holds the potential to cut the future mission costs.

Smartphone Screens to Give Better Displays with Wheel-Shaped Molecules

Smartphone Screens to Give Better Displays with Wheel-Shaped Molecules

According to a recent research published in the Journal of Nature Chemistry, molecules in the shape of wagon wheels were used in order to make organic LEDs by a team of researchers.

The scientists from the University of Utah and University of Bonn collectively carried out this experiment in order to solve the problem of poor LED displays. The wheel shaped molecules emit lights in a way that it is not polarized.

Programming Language to Develop Synthetic DNA

Programming Language to Develop Synthetic DNA

A team of researchers from the University of Washington has invented a programming language for creating synthetic DNA. Till now, you have heard of languages like JAVA and C++ for running a computer, but this latest language will make an artificial DNA.

This program made with the help of this structured set of instructions will work just like the DNA molecules do in a cell or in a test tube.

NASA to Launch 3-D Printer into Space

NASA to Launch 3-D Printer into Space

With a 3-D printer to be launched next year, the astronauts will not require to take every tool they might need in the space from Earth. NASA is in the final stages of launching this game changer in the size of a toaster.

With the help of this 3-D printer, numerous designs could be created. The printer will extrude various plastic layers upon layers from long coiled strands.

These strands are extensively used by the jewellery makers for making exquisite jewellery and also by the doctors for creating replacement joints.

Judge Orders to Revaluate Sonar Usage Permits

Judge Orders to Revaluate Sonar Usage Permits

The Environment activist groups have now something great to celebrate for. The extensive use of sonar in training exercises along the West Coast by the U. S. Navy will be revaluated. The action will be taken considering the long term impact of these activities on the ocean life and especially on whales.

Cedric to Replace Silicon Soon

Cedric to Replace Silicon Soon

A study revealed the first computer was completely built by carbon nanotubes. This paved a path for a new generation of digital devices.

"Cedric" is single fundamental prototype but could be developed into a machine. It is smaller, faster and more efficient as compared to today's silicon models.

The breakthrough was published in Nature by the engineers of Stanford University. The computer works on a single bit of information and can only count till 32.

Full Scale Bloodhound Model on Display at Cardiff Bay

A full size model of Bloodhound SSC (supersonic car) is on display at Cardiff Bay. The supersonic car poses a world land speed record challenge for the world.

The main objective of the car is to break the 1,000mph speed record in South Africa after two years from now.

Swansea University Experts have been working on the aerodynamics of this supersonic car for the period of last five years. The vehicle has been powered by Eurofighter Typhoon jet engine.
