This Machine Can 3-D Scan Your Insides In A Single Heartbeat

This Machine Can 3-D Scan Your Insides In A Single Heartbeat | Into the Future | Scoop.it
You've never seen your organs like this before. In a quarter of a second, this new CT scanner can take a perfect 3-D photo of your brain or heart. The underlying technology is nothing new, since CT scanners have been around for 40 years. But they’ve never been nearly this fast. “It’s analogous to the shutter speed on a camera,” says Scott Schubert, general manager of premium CT at GE Healthcare, whose Revolution CT is now pending approval from the FDA. “The faster the shutter speed on a camera, the more you’re able to freeze moving objects.”

How space travel is set to transform a sleepy desert town into a 'spaceopolis'

How space travel is set to transform a sleepy desert town into a 'spaceopolis' | Into the Future | Scoop.it

(CNN) -- The town of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, is tiny. The population barely reaches 7,000, and the smattering of tourists it attracts throughout the year are undoubtedly lured by its rustic, small-town charm.

 

Not surprisingly, T or C lacks the name recognition of, say, Santa Fe or Albuquerque. That is set to change in the next couple of years however, as the town is on the brink of becoming the epicenter for space tourism. Spaceport America -- which next year is slated to send a troupe of multi-millionaires up into the stratosphere when Virgin Galactic moves in -- is a mere 30 miles to the northeast.

Two big problems to get rid of fossil fuels, or better said, using them for better purposes rather than burning them: energy generation and energy storage, this one here is just one more interesting idea for the latter.
