There are very large companies, often state owned, who would need to foot the bill to develop this and if they all decide it's not worth it they don't have to worry about anyone getting a commercial advantage by doing it, a sort of unofficial collu
The community of bacteria that lives in our gut has become the focus of much medical research of late, with scientists uncovering evidence that it can play a role in depression, autism, multiple sclerosis and heart disease, to name just a few example
Brian Greene moderates this fascinating program exploring the fundamental principles of Quantum Physics. Anyone with an interest in science will enjoy this thought-provoking and highly entertaining show.
In these past couple of weeks, two important studies have been published that could dramatically increase our understanding of the Covid-19 disease. Adding to the science of how we understand and treat this disease is something that should be welcome
In a satirical piece for Under the Button, writer Scott Newman imagines a scenario in which the Chinese Communist Party comes up with a next-generation version of COVID-19.

It should also help to reach the desired temperature in shorter time.
While traditional diamonds are formed over billions of years deep in the Earth where extreme pressures and temperatures provide just the right conditions to crystalize carbon, scientists are working on more expedient ways of forging the precious ston
Are electric pickup trucks the beginning of the end for gas-powered trucks?
Optically transparent aerogel is essentially a lightweight foam made of silica, the material of beach sand, and consists mostly of air. It reduces the rate of heat loss by tenfold.
Join leading thinkers in the emerging field of quantum biology as they explore the hidden hand of quantum physics in everyday life and discuss how these insights may one day revolutionize thinking on everything from the energy crisis to quantum compu

Although we've already heard about pressure-sensitive "skins" that could be applied to robotic or prosthetic appendages, Japanese scientists have created one for use on real human fingers.
Elon Musk tweeted that SpaceX developed and uses LIDAR for Dragon docking with the Space Station. Elon and Tesla do not use LIDAR for for self-driving.
A simple home test for breast cancer and a solar energy-harvesting window made of recycled materials are the big winners of this year's James Dyson Awards.
A study of 6,000 Danes was set to reveal whether wearing a face mask actually reduces the risk of COVID-19. The only problem is leading medical journals are refusing to publish the data, and the study's lead author hinted it's because they're not "br

As useful as X-rays are for imaging bones, there's only so much we can see in a flat greyscale image.
France's Nawa Technologies is setting up operations in the United States, and bringing its fast, affordable vertically aligned carbon nanotube (VACNT) manufacturing process into a new application: making carbon fiber composites much stronger.
By getting up close and personal with the intricate mechanics of bird flight, scientists continue to unlock secrets that can aid in their pursuit of advanced aerodynamics, and that may include aircraft that generate a lot less noise.
...because it contains experimental nanotech components that have NEVER been used in vaccines before
Donna Strickland, PhD, winner of the 2018 Nobel Prize in Physics and a professor at the University of Waterloo, is challenged to explain lasers to 5 different people; a child, a teen, a college student, a grad student, and an expert.
The lack of headphones means it's possible to hear other sounds in the room clearly. The technology uses a 3-D sensing module and locates and tracks the ear position sending audio via ultrasonic waves to create sound pockets by the user's ears
