Genetic Details Of 1700 People Posted Online By Amazon

The 1000 Genome Project is a project sponsored and run primarily by National Institute of Health and a number of other organizations. The aim of the project is to discern such genetic variants which have a frequency of more than 1%. Now, Amazon has posted the genomic information from this project, of some 1700 people, in the public cloud so that it could be publicly accessed.

Solar Storms Squeeze Earth’s Magnetosphere Gradually When Explode

Our planet earth is surrounded by a magnetosphere. A magnetosphere is formed when a stream of charged particles like the solar wind interacts with and is exchanged by the own magnetic field of a planet or similar body. Recently, researchers have created some pictures. These pictures show that how solar storms compress our planet's protective magnetic field. No doubt, these findings may help improve communications satellite design.

Video Of James Cameron’s Dive To The Deepest Point Of The Earth

James Cameron, the director of Titanic and many other box-office hits, recently took a three-hour trip to the deepest point on Earth, called the Challenger Deep. Its in the Mariana Trench and is located at a depth of 35,576 feet. With this, Cameron has become the second person to have gone to this depth and the first to have gone solo and spent so much time there.

HUME : A Bipedal Robot For Human Centered Hyper Agility

Robots are made to understand the physical capabilities and physiology of human movement for use in the design of machines with similar abilities. This time, scientists analysis this robots’ based on their performances as a function of speed, agility and efficiency, where speed is the center of mass absolute velocity, agility is the complexity of traversable terrain and efficiency is the cost of transport. Engineers at Meka Robotics and the University of Texas at Austin want to be the first to build a bipedal robot named Hume with Parkour skills. Hume has been designed to achieve the skill of Human-Centered Hyper-Agility (HCHA).

The World’s Most Powerful Non-Destructive Magnet

Generating a non-destructive 100 Tesla magnetic field has been a project of the Los Alamos National Lab for about a decade and a half. Theory of Magnetic Field is quiet interesting. Recently, researchers have hooked up a huge nested magnet to a bigger generator that kicks out a pulse 2 million times stronger than the Earth's magnetic field. This magnet is being called the world’s most powerful non-destructive magnet. And guess what? It screams like a Banshee while in the process. A magnet screams? Lets find out...

MIT Researchers Say Light Alone Can Activate Specific Memories Of Brain

Whatever happened in your life till now, somehow your brain captures that. Neuroscientists call these traces memory engrams. Researchers of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) say that using optogenetics to artificially reactivate memories could advance the study of neurodegenerative disorders. The direct reactivation of specific hippocampus neurons can lead to very specific memory recall. It is light that the researchers used.

Futuristic Supersonic Biplane Could Break The Sound Barrier

For more than 27 years, the Concorde carried its passengers with luxury from New York to Paris in approximate 3 and a half hours. Though the plane was very fast, it couldn't run further. Due to its expensive tickets, high fuel costs, limited seating and especially noise disruption from the jet’s sonic boom, people lost interest travelling in it. Therefore, it finally retired from service on November 26, 2003. But, according to an MIT researcher, future supersonic biplane like Concorde may fly again with a lot less sound and less travel cost.

Robojelly Generating Fuel From Surrounding Water

A jellyfish moves using circular muscles in the inside of its umbrella-like bell. As the jellyfish contracts, the bell closes in on itself and ejects water to propel itself forward. When the muscles relax, the bell regains its original shape. By keeping that in mind, Engineers in the US have invented a hydrogen-powered robotic jellyfish that moves through water like a jellyfish. They call this Robojelly. As it is a hydrogen-powered robot, it will not run out of energy.

An Austrian Skydives From 13 Miles Above The Earth, Wants To Jump From Even Higher

Skydiving is a great thrilling activity. It takes a lot of gut and a different kind of sportive skill to actually perform it. That required skill is bravery. Not that it is daring and physically challenge and potentially life threatening that makes it a brave act to perform, but because it takes that free spirit inside of a person which has no fear to go ahead and skydive. Something of the same has been overcome and performed by the Austrian skydiver Felix Baumgartner and he has been dubbed as the “Fearless Felix” since his feat is not any usual skydiving but an extreme one according to Digital Trends.

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.
