Another mission to Mars

Another mission to Mars

NASA completed a test flight of their Orion capsule being designed to take folks to Mars. It is also the first time in approximately fifty years that a spaceship is being designed to carry astronauts to Mars and back. This is not the first time that such a flight to lifeless, barren Mars has been undertaken. Last year a test flight by the Orion was successful. During that mission, spanning a distance of over three thousand miles, the Orion’s parachute system performed impeccably. But this time NASA engineers are deliberately setting up the system to fail. The mock failure was…

Zuckerberg goes green

Zuckerberg goes green

Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook is going green. This is good news for environmentally precocious social media fans. Facebook is building a wind-powered data center in Fort Worth, Texas; it will be powered by one hundred percent renewable energy, nothing less, nothing more. This ambitious project will go live by the end of 2016. The company’s current goal is to power all operations with at least 50 percent renewable energy by 2018. The long term goal, according to Facebook’s engineering guru Jay Parikh, is to achieve 100 percent dependence on renewable energy. Environmentalists are in awe of Facebook’s greening initiatives. One campaigner believes that…

Keurig K-cups are non recyclable, inventor regrets design

Keurig K-cups are non recyclable, inventor regrets design

The concept of being able to brew just one cup of coffee was so convenient that it made Keurig K-cups, presently owned by Green Mountain, extremely popular all over North America. Small coffee pods for individual cup of coffee and the Keurig pod machines that brew them can be seen in almost every workplace in America. Unfortunately, the K-cups seem to have environmental issues that cannot be ignored. The disposable little K-cups have been found to be non recyclable; in a recent interview,  its inventor, John Sylvan, has regretted that he has designed it. As an alternative to a cup of…

Graphene will help to generate electricity and fuel in the future

Graphene will help to generate electricity and fuel in the future

After showcasing that Graphene possesses twice the bullet stopping effectiveness when compared to Kevlar as well as possessing 10 times the capability of stopping the kinetic energy of steel bullets, Graphene is proving itself to be quite a material. That’s not all; Graphene will also be able to prevent global fuel and electricity shortages by taking fuel out of thin air and generating electricity from it. How exactly is Graphene able to generate fuel out of thin air? Graphene is a two dimensional material, allowing protons to easily pass through it. A Hydrogen atom that has its electron removed will…

In the future, the world’s internet traffic will be carried on a single fiber

In the future, the world’s internet traffic will be carried on a single fiber

As the frequency of internet traffic keeps on increasing with every passing day, the combined effort of researchers hailing from Netherlands and the United States have made history after breaking the world record by transferring 255 terabits of data just through a single strand of glass fiber. Transferring 255 terabits through a single strand of glass fiber is equivalent to pushing 32 terabytes per second through that tiny strand of glass fiber. What’s more fascinating is that this speed is enough to transfer an 1 Gigabyte movie in 31.25 microseconds. For transferring 1 Terabyte of data, it will take only…

Treemetrics wins a million Euros contract

 Treemetrics wins a million Euros contract

Ireland based company that pioneered the technology to measure standing trees in the forest using 3D laser scanning has come to the limelight again; the last time it was under the spotlight was after winning the Schweighofer Award back in June 2005. This time Treemetrics wins a million Euros contract from ESA (European Space Agency) to conduct research in forestry monitoring with the help of their satellite technology. The company provides services to forest owners in terms of measuring the quantity and quality of standing trees; recently satellite mapping has been added to its services along with a “real-time forest…

Robot war against Ebola has begun

Robot war against Ebola has begun

“Ebola” seems to be the most frightening name on the planet right now; it is a virus causing one of the deadliest diseases that have claimed many lives in Africa. The first ever person to be infected by the virus in the United States Thomas Eric Duncan was diagnosed with it at a hospital in Dallas, Texas. Following his death, hospitals across the country are taking initiatives to combat this dreadful disease. Xenex Disinfection, a San Antonio based startup company, has come up with a virus-zapping autonomous robot that is capable of effectively stopping the spread of Ebola by pulsing…

Air Umbrella prevents raindrops from falling through an invisible force field

Air Umbrella prevents raindrops from falling through an invisible force field

While the umbrella has turned out to be one handy form of paraphernalia required to keep you from getting soaked when there’s a heavy downpour, technology has allowed the Umbrella to be introduced in a completely new form. Introducing the new Air Umbrella; a brand new gadget making its way on Kickstarter that performs the functions of a convectional umbrella, but with a twist of tech attached to it. Air Umbrella will not require users to release a latch that will allow the retractable waterproof sheets of the umbrella to form up and prevent you from being soaked. Instead, it…

Solar panel like device can store its own electricity

Solar panel like device can store its own electricity

Solar energy is a very expedient form of electricity generation and automatically becomes the perfect alternative for replacing traditional forms of receiving electricity. However, exorbitant amounts of capital required to make solar power feasible automatically turns it into a discouraged venture. All that is about to change thanks to the efforts of individuals who are positioned at the Ohio State University. They have created an air-breathing lithium battery that gets recharged using a built-in solar cell. This is the kind of breakthrough that was required while finding different alternative forms of energy as one of the biggest impediments of solar…

This device will allow users to complete a mile in 4 minutes

This device will allow users to complete a mile in 4 minutes

Covering the distance of a mile for normal athletes will require them to maintain a steady running pace of 15 miles/per hour; this device will allow them to cover the same distance without producing a ton of lactic acid in their lower body. Jason Kerestes, an engineering student at the Arizona State University, has invented a device, which he calls the ‘4MM’ or the 4 Minute Mile project. The project allows runners to maintain a 15 mile/per hour speed by attaching a jetback to their lower backs, which provides them with the much needed momentum. The 4MM jetpack possess thrusters…
