Man Never Leaves His Dream : A Dutchman Flaps His Arms And Flies Like Birds

Man Never Leaves His Dream : A Dutchman Flaps His Arms And Flies Like Birds

People have always dream, one day he will fly like a bird. Other people will get confused, what is flying in the sky? Is it a bird or a human? After long working for several months on Human Bird Wings project, Jarno Smeets finally flies just alike a bird. The same technique, same flying style. It’s really uncertain to tell from far, which thing is in the air? Dutchman proves, Nothing is Impossible.

Researchers New Developed Device Can Measure Nanopores With Less Error

Researchers New Developed Device Can Measure Nanopores With Less Error

Scientists are continuously working on nanotechnology. Recently, they have designed a custom integrated circuit using commercial semiconductor technology. Researchers have developed a device that can not only measure nanopores with less error than commercial instruments but also it can see single molecules passing through the pore in only 1 microsecond. A team of researchers at Columbia Engineering has figured out a way to measure nanopores.

Fetal Exposure Of Pregnant Mice To Cell Phones Affect Mental Development

Fetal Exposure Of Pregnant Mice To Cell Phones Affect Mental Development

During pregnancy an expecting mother should take of herself and her body with tremendous care. From the sleeping routine to eating routine to postures, all has to be taken care of, especially during the third trimester. Researchers have recently conducted an experiment where they had exposed pregnant mice to radiation from a cell phone according to a report by SciTechDaily.

Einstein’s Theory Remains SAFE : Neutrinos Can’t Travel Faster Than Light

Einstein’s Theory Remains SAFE : Neutrinos Can’t Travel Faster Than Light

Einstein might be laughing from the sky! Researchers inventions and experiments gave them a clue that, a particle ‘Neutrino’ has the ability to travel at light’s speed in a vacuum, at 180,000 miles per second. But, the Imaging Cosmic And Rare Underground Signals (ICARUS) experiment at the Italian Gran Sasso laboratory has reported that the neutrinos do not exceed the speed of light. They can travel exactly as fast as they should, and not a nanosecond more.

Ultra High Resolution 3D Printer Prints 5 Meters Per Second

Ultra High Resolution 3D Printer Prints 5 Meters Per Second

Using a high-resolution 3D printing technology is known to us as ‘two-photon lithography.’ Lithography is a technique which is normally quite slow. But researchers at the Vienna University of Technology have made a huge breakthrough in printing speed. They have developed a high-precision 3D printer that can print 5 meters in 1 second. It’s pretty amazing and it sets a new world record.

Russia Aims To Send Man To The Moon And Mars By 2030

Russia Aims To Send Man To The Moon And Mars By 2030

The Russian Federal Space Agency Roscosmos wants to prove their efficiency. By 2030, They are going to send a manned craft around the moon, build ion-powered space tugs and they’ll try to visit Mars. Roscosmos has already submitted their plan to its government. By 2020, Roscosmos is also looking to replace its current rockets ‘Soyuz’ and ‘Proton’ with a new rocket named ‘Angara.’

Space Shuttle ‘Atlantis’ And ‘Discovery’ Face To Face

Space Shuttle ‘Atlantis’ And ‘Discovery’ Face To Face

You might see ‘Atlantis’ or ‘Discovery’ individually. But did you see those two space shuttle together? Really tough to see them together. Here, you can see these two monsters very closely. For the first and last time, Atlantic is facing with her sister ship Discovery nose to nose. ‘Atlantis’ and ‘Discovery’ both are the space shuttle orbiter.

Cyborg Snail That Turned Into A Living Battery Is Able To Produce Electricity For Months

Cyborg Snail That Turned Into A Living Battery Is Able To Produce Electricity For Months

An animal powered battery may allow for tracking or information-collecting devices to last much longer without including a bulky battery. It might be possible that we could use this power for implanted medical devices in humans. However, after the success of implantation a bio-fuel cell into a living snail that can generate electricity from the glucose in its bloodstream, few scientists are desperately working on batteries that can be powered by different animal’s natural metabolic processes.

Using A Beam Of Neutrinos, Researchers Send ‘Wireless’ Message For The First Time

Using A Beam Of Neutrinos, Researchers Send ‘Wireless’ Message For The First Time

Communication is a very important thing in our life. To communicate with people easily, researchers are trying to bring new ideas and technologies. Messaging is one of the part of communications. A group of scientists along with researchers from the University of Rochester and North Carolina State University have sent a message for the first time using a beam of ‘Neutrinos’. Neutrino is that particle that challenged Einstein’s theory ‘nothing can travel faster than the speed of light, at 180,000 miles per second’ to be wrong. Neutrino particles have the ability to travel at almost the speed of light.

Nanowire Forests Using Sunlight To Split Water

Nanowire Forests Using Sunlight To Split Water

Nanotechnology has been vast improved in fuel cell technology in the past few years. At present, electrical engineers from University of California, San Diego, are trying to build a forest of tiny nanowire trees in order to capture solar energy easily without using fossil fuels and harvest it for hydrogen fuel generation. It means, Nano-trees will harvest the sun’s energy to turn water into hydrogen fuel.

World’s First 3-D Printed Jaw Transplanted To 83 Year Old Woman

World’s First 3-D Printed Jaw Transplanted To 83 Year Old Woman

For the first time in the history of the world, a 3D printer created lower jaw of mouth has been successfully fitted to an 83 year old woman’s face, who is a European octogenarian. The artificial jaw was made from Titanium powder. This successful operation occurred in June, 2011, in Netherlands: but mysteriously more than 8 months later, it’s been revealed to public. The 83 year old lady is absolutely fine. This operation will help for the use of more 3D printed patient specific parts in future.

‘Twisted’ Wave Enables Boost Capacity Of Wi-Fi And TV

‘Twisted’ Wave Enables Boost Capacity Of Wi-Fi And TV

After more than 3 years of incredulity and ungentle mocking, Bo Thide of the Swedish Institute of Space Physics and a team in Venice, Italy have finally proved that it’s possible to simultaneously transmit multiple radio channels over exactly the same wireless frequency. In theory, it can potentially transmit an ‘infinite number’ of TV, radio, WiFi, and cellular channels at the same time over the same frequency. The team exploited a property of radio waves named ‘orbital angular momentum’ to send 2 signals on the same frequency. They provided those 2 signals different amounts of orbital angular momentum.

NASA Cuts Budget From Other Projects To Focus On Mars

NASA Cuts Budget From Other Projects To Focus On Mars

A few weeks ago, White House announced that it will be cutting down on the funding to the space agency, NASA. This causes quite a debate since NASA has been making valuable progress regarding it’s research about Mars. Now, it has been learnt that NASA is cutting it’s budget from other projects so that it could muster the hefty expenses it would require for Mars missions during this decade. Despite the cuts in funding, NASA seems determined to go forth with it’s Mars-centric approach.

China Are Being Efficient In Creating Plastic Bodies

China Are Being Efficient In Creating Plastic Bodies

We all are familiar with the word ‘Plastic Surgery.’ Through plastic surgery people can change their face. Which means he/she becomes a new person. Plastination is close to plastic surgery. Without changing anything of human body, a new human can be created through plastination. Even an animal too. Humans can be created only in within 1 year.

Graphene – The Wonder Material Of Tomorrow’s Computers

Graphene – The Wonder Material Of Tomorrow’s Computers

Apparently, we are at the dawn of a new computer era, as scientists explain us how a revolutionary material can be the building block for faster, thinner and even flexible devices. The breakthrough comes from controlling graphene which is a very strong nanomaterial (two hundred times stronger than steel) made out of a single atomic layer of carbon atoms bound in a hexagonal network.
