Tiantong-01 is the first satellite of China's home-made satellite mobile telecom system, and a key part of the country's space information infrastructure.
The researchers used a metal compound called tungsten diselenide, which was fashioned into nanosized flakes to maximize the surface area and to expose its reactive edges.
A team led by Dr Lu You at Sichuan University’s West China Hospital in Chengdu received approval to carry out the trial from the hospital’s review board on 6 July 2016. The world’s first genetic editing trial on humans will be based on CRISPR–Cas9 technique.
The storm is based in Jupiter’s lower atmosphere and spans 13670 miles by 7456 miles (22000 km by 12000 km). The top of its clouds reach altitudes of about 31 miles (50 km).
The dynamical model is also known as the Coupled Forecast System. It collates data on local as well as global weather patterns to simulate a forecast for a specific duration.
The scientists found the presence of the Culex quinquefasciatus mosquito infected by the Zika virus in three out of 80 groups of mosquitoes analysed up until now.
The Solar Impulse 2 has travelled 26744 miles since setting off from Abu Dhabi. The aircraft has racked up 558 hours of flight time.
The Solar Power Tree harnesses solar energy for producing electricity with an innovative vertical arrangement of solar cells. Therefore, it reduces the requirement of land as compared to conventional Solar Photovoltaic layout.
The oil-degrading properties of these bacteria will pave the way for the development of bioremediation agents to clean up petroleum pollutants from the environment.
Facebook hopes to have a fleet of Aquilas that can fly for at least three months at a time at 60000 feet and communicate with each other to deliver internet access.
With this, the ancient barley has become the oldest plant genome to be reconstructed to date. Before this, only prehistoric corn was genetically reconstructed.
Development of the Zika vaccine has been authorized by the US Food and Drug Administration and Health Canada. Until now, vaccines have been tested on mice.
Dragon spaceship was packed with nearly 23000 kilograms of gear, including science experiments and equipment for the astronauts living in space.
Once the reactor starts generating 400 MWe of power, it is likely to be connected to the grid possibly within 45 days from the date of criticality. Generation of power will be raised to 500 MWe, 750 MWe, 900 MWe and 1000 MWe in stages.
Juno's main aim is to understand the origin and evolution of Jupiter. The spacecraft will also investigate the existence of a solid planetary core, map Jupiter's intense magnetic field, measure the amount of water and ammonia in the deep atmosphere and observe the planet's auroras.
The New Horizons will explore 2014 MU69, which is an ancient object considered one of the early building blocks of the solar system. 2014 MU69 was discovered on 26 June 2014 using the Hubble Space Telescope.
The research involved injecting a chemical compound, nitrobenzaldehyde, into the tumour and allowing it to diffuse into the tissue. A beam of light was aimed at the tissue, which caused the cells to become very acidic inside. It forced the cells to commit suicide.
The Shijian-16 satellite will be used for space environment measurements, radiation and its effect as well as technology testing.
It says that a large amount of blue light emitted by the high-intensity LED lighting appears white to the naked eye but it can create worse nighttime glare than conventional lighting.
The new stem cell-containing bio ink allows 3D printing of living tissue, known as bio-printing.
The KiloCore was presented at the 2016 Symposium on VLSI Technology and Circuits in Honolulu on 16 June 2016.
K2-33b, which is nearly 10 times closer to its star than Mercury is to our sun, is a bit larger than Neptune and whips tightly around its star every five days.
With the successful launch of record 20 satellites aboard PSLV-C33 by ISRO, jagranjosh.com brings for its readers 11 major missions or satellites launched by the ISRO in 2015-16. The list covers the launches since July 2015.
The 20 satellites including India’s latest earth observation satellite Cartosat-2 was launched on-board Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle PSLV C-34 from Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota.
It was revealed in the TOP500 list of supercomputers released at the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) in Frankfurt, Germany.
