Researchers Created A Jumping And Gliding Robot Inspired By A Flying Fish

Earlier we have seen researchers at Stanford University creating world’s first peel and stick solar cells and biological computer with human DNA. And lately, some researchers at Stanford University have developed a small 'aircraft', inspired by a flying fish which can jump and glide over a greater distance than an equivalent jumping robot. The aircraft or gliding robot can also adjust its launch angle depending on the surface to move and land gracefully without having to sacrifice distance.

Stanford Engineers Created Biological Computer With Human DNA

It has been reported in the journal Science published on March 28 that some bio-engineers at Stanford University have created a biological transistor that allows them to compute inside living cells, where it could detect disease, warn of toxic threats, and where danger lurk, even self-destruct cells gone rogue.

Stanford University Creates World’s First Peel And Stick Solar Cells

Usually solar cells are very thin and are found on houses and buildings. These thin-film solar cells are made with rigid glass substrates and hence can be stick on some certain surfaces. But recently engineers at Stanford University have created world's first peel-and-stick thin solar cells that can be stuck on nearly any surface like decals. The new peel and stick solar panels actually work more like temporary tattoos.

Sony Concludes Folding@home Project After Five-Year Run

Analyzing complex human body structures can be very cumbersome and usually requires a whole lot of computational power. Sony launched 'Folding@home', a venture which aimed to utilize the processing power of idle PlayStation 3 devices. The company has now announced that it is shelving the project.

Netflix CEO Has Joined The Board Of Directors Of Facebook

Netflix's CEO Reed Hastings is joining the Board of Directors for Facebook should make for an interesting note in the next movie, but beyond that it's unclear what it means for either company and he successfully navigated Netflix through the process of going public which many assume will be a next step for the social media giant. So his experience could come in handy nd also serves on the board of Microsoft, which owns a stake in Facebook. That goes without mentioning plans by Netflix to make another run at integrating social features into its movie service after the original implementation fell apart........

NASA’s FTP Server Hacked

A Romanian attacker known as TinKode has compromised a FTP server belonging to Goddard Space Flight Center and has released a screenshot of the server as a proof. The files on it appear to be related to NASA’s SERVIR program and the attacker is also known to have previously compromised MySQL.com, Mod.uk, Water.weather.gov and Army.mil...........

NASA Gravity Experiment Proves Einstein Really Was A Genius

NASA concludes Gravity Probe B space-time experiment, proves Einstein really was a genius and to do this engineers strapped the GP-B satellite with four ultra-precise gyroscopes to measure two pillars of the theory: the geodetic effect and frame dragging.The GP-B's gyroscopes were pointed squarely at the IM Pegasi guide star and engineers observed their behavior..............
