Giant solar plane could stay airborne for 5 years, replace some satellites

Giant solar plane could stay airborne for 5 years, replace some satellites | Science, Technology, Internet | Scoop.it

The Solara is intended to loft a payload to 20,000 meters [60,000+ feet] and then keep it there for 5 years, running entirely on solar power. It functions a bit like a satellite, except substantially cheaper and much more versatile. And, you can get it back when you're done.

Dutch Scientists Achieve Quantum Teleportation Breakthrough

Dutch Scientists Achieve Quantum Teleportation Breakthrough | Science, Technology, Internet | Scoop.it

We may not have Star Trek-esque transporter technology any time soon—or ever—but Dutch researchers this week reported a breakthrough in the quantum teleportation of information, opening the door to a potential revolution in computing and networking.

Scientists at the Delft University of Technology's Kavli Institute of Nanoscience managed to transfer information contained in one quantum bit, or qubit, to another "entangled" qubit about 10 feet away "without the information having travelled through the intervening space," Prof. Ronald Hanson, head of the research group wrote in a summary.

In other words, as Hanson noted, "teleportation."

Tiny human brain models grown in lab with tiny cortex, tiny hippocampus (video)

Tiny human brain models grown in lab with tiny cortex, tiny hippocampus (video) | Science, Technology, Internet | Scoop.it

Through stem cells, the Institute of Molecular Biology (IMB) in Austria has managed to grow some tiny (3-4mm) human brain models that include parts of the cortex, hippocampus and retinas. The lab-grown tissue will allow researchers to peer into the early stages of human brain development in far higher detail than ever before.
