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.
The plane is fixed with 14 electric motors turning propellers and all of them are integrated into a uniquely-designed wing.
The development of the ‘exascale supercomputer’ is part of the China’s national plan for the next generation of high performance computers.
Its proponents envision a project on the same scale as the Human Genome Project-Read (HGP-Read) under which human genome was sequenced in 2003.
The observation that occurred over Aliso Canyon, near Porter Ranch, California is a breakthrough as it provides an ability to eventually measure emissions of this potent greenhouse gas from space.
The detection was made on 26 December 2016 by the LIGO’s twin detectors in Louisiana and Washington when the waves hit the observatory lasted for about a full second and is five times longer than the first one.
As part of the initiative seven underwater robots will be released from an Indian ship in the third week of June 2016 by Scientists from the University of East Anglia (UEA).
The planet has a mass and radius nearly identical to that of Jupiter, making it the largest transiting circumbinary planet ever found. Planets that orbit two stars are known as circumbinary planets.
It is an irregular dwarf galaxy which is smaller and messier than its cosmic cousins.
The satellite, launched from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in southwest China's Sichuan Province, was taken into orbit by a Long March-3C carrier rocket.
The technique will provide a safer, faster way to sequester CO2 and limit global warming. And it was identified it as a potentially significant way to combat climate change.
These new rice variants are improvement forms of the Ranjit and Bahadur varieties which the farmers of the Barak valley have been using for years.
The Mission demonstrated that two test masses can be put in free fall with a relative acceleration sufficiently free of noise to meet the requirements needed for space-based gravitational-wave detection.
