Physicists Find Evidence That The Universe Is A 'Giant Brain'

Physicists Find Evidence That The Universe Is A 'Giant Brain' | FabLabRo | Scoop.it
The idea of the universe as a 'giant brain' has been proposed by scientists - and science fiction writers - for decades. But now physicists say there may be some evidence that it's actually true.

ESA’s Planck Space Telescope Discovers Huge Gas Filament Connecting Two Galaxy Clusters

ESA’s Planck Space Telescope Discovers Huge Gas Filament Connecting Two Galaxy Clusters | FabLabRo | Scoop.it
European astronomers using ESA’s Planck Space Telescope have detected a 10 million light-years long bridge of hot gas connecting a pair of galaxy clusters, Abell 399 and Abell 401.

 

Planck’s primary task is to capture the most ancient light of the cosmos. If this faint light interacts with the hot gas permeating different types of space structures including galaxies and galaxy clusters, its energy distribution is modified in a characteristic way, a phenomenon known as the Sunyaev-Zel’dovich (SZ) effect.

 

Astronomers have already used the SZ effect to detect galaxy clusters themselves, but it also provides a way to detect faint filaments of gas that might connect one cluster to another.

 

The presence of hot gas between the billion-light-year-distant clusters Abell 399 and Abell 401 was first hinted at in X-ray data from ESA’s XMM-Newton, and the new data from Planck confirm the observation.

 

By combining the Planck data with archival X-ray observations from the German satellite Rosat, the astronomers have found temperature of the gas in the bridge to be similar to the temperature of the gas in the two clusters – on the order of 80 million degrees Celsius.

World's Lightest Running Shoe Created With 3D Printer By Student

World's Lightest Running Shoe Created With 3D Printer By Student | FabLabRo | Scoop.it

A design student has created what might be the lightest running shoe ever made. Luc Fusaro, who is also part of the team which designed the London 2012 podium, made the shoes while a student at the Royal College of Art in London. The shoes are custom-made for each athlete, and are produced using a 3D printer. Weighing just 90 grams, they are among the lightest ever made. Fusaro thinks they could be ready for competition by the 2016 games in Rio - and even the current prototypes could shave fractions off a 100m time.

 

"The current mass-manufacturing process only allows to produce shoes with standard mechanical properties and geometries," his website explains. "Using the opportunities offered by additive manufacturing... opens up the possibility of whole new generation of athlete-specific footwear." French-born Fusaro previously studied General Engineering at Ecole Centrale Lyon - but also competed in athletics "at a national level" for a number of years.

 

More fine-tuning is needed - the upper part of the shoe is reportedly too stiff and more comfort needs to be added. But Fusaro said they still showcase the "unlimited potential" of 3D technology.

'nicholette CHAN, gilles RETSIN, aaron SILVER, & sophia TANG: Body topologic explores processes of self-organization which result in complex topological forms. Working with non-linear dynamics and local rules, node-networked bodies generated a variety of surface and volume organizations. These organizations explore algorithmic notions of material intelligence, ultimately producing topological entities that have coherent order when nearing a dynamically stable state.'
