Higher Concentration of Metal in Moon’s Craters Provides New Insights to its Origin

Higher Concentration of Metal in Moon’s Craters Provides New Insights to its Origin | Design, Comm, Sci and Tech | Scoop.it
New observations could challenge previous theories of how the Moon was formed

 

Life on Earth would not be possible without the Moon; it keeps our planet’s axis of rotation stable, which controls seasons and regulates our climate.  However, there has been considerable debate over how the Moon was formed. The popular hypothesis contends that the Moon was formed by a Mars-sized body colliding with Earth’s upper crust which is poor in metals. But new research suggests the Moon’s subsurface is more metal-rich than previously thought, providing new insights that could challenge our understanding of that process.

Though Pluto is now famously frigid, it may have started off as a hot world that formed rapidly and violently, a new study finds. This result suggests Pluto may have possessed an underground ocean since early on in its life, potentially improving its chances of hosting life, researchers said.

The Navy is Testing Beaming Solar Power in Space

The Navy is Testing Beaming Solar Power in Space | Design, Comm, Sci and Tech | Scoop.it

Solar power has become a focal point of the battle to mitigate climate change.  The potential of solar power is massive – Earth receives as much solar energy in an hour as all of humanity uses in a year.  Even with that much energy hitting the Earth, it is only a tiny fraction of the sun’s overall output.  Some of that other solar energy hits other planets, but most is just lost to the void of deep space.

 

There are a number of groups that are leveraging various technologies to capture some of that lost energy.  One of the most common technologies being pursued is the idea of the power satellite.  Recently, one of those groups at America’s Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) hit a milestone in the development of power satellite technology by launching their Photovoltaic RF Antenna Module (PRAM) test satellite.

 

The idea underlying power satellites is called “power beaming”.  Power beaming systems use one of three different frequencies of light to transmit significant amounts of power over a distance wirelessly.  Last year NRL had a successful demonstration of a land-based power beaming system using an infrared laser.

What is pool testing and how does it work?

What is pool testing and how does it work? | Design, Comm, Sci and Tech | Scoop.it
It’s an approach officials are considering for ramping up coronavirus testing.

 

Also known as batch testing, pool testing combines samples from several people and tests them for the coronavirus all at once, cutting down on the time and supplies required. The protocol was first invented to test for syphilis during World War II and has been used in the past for outbreaks of other sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV.

 

“If everyone is negative, then you’re done,” Ashish Jha, director of the Harvard Global Health Institute at Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health, explained. If the test detected the presence of the virus, then each person would have to be tested and the results individually analyzed to determine whose sample produced the positive result.

 

“You can rapidly increase the capacity of testing,” said Benjamin Pinsky, director of the Clinical Virology Laboratory at Stanford University’s School of Medicine. “The trade-off is that there’s reduced sensitivity. It’s kind of a balance.” Samples with low viral loads are more likely to go undetected in a pool, he said.

Artist uses AI to create stunning portraits of historical figures

Artist uses AI to create stunning portraits of historical figures | Design, Comm, Sci and Tech | Scoop.it
Bas Uterwijk, an Amsterdam-based artist, is using AI to create extremely lifelike photographs of historical figures and monuments such as the Statue of Liberty, artist Vincent van Gogh, George Washington and Queen Elizabeth I.

 

 

Using a program called Artbreeder, which is described as “deep learning software,” Uterwijk builds his photographs based on a compilation of portraits, reports the Daily Mail. The program pinpoints common facial features and photograph qualities to produce an image.

 

“I try to guide the software to a credible outcome. I think of my work more as artistic interpretations than scientifically or historically accurate,” the artist tells the outlet. On Instagram, he details the many variations that go into creating his work. So far, he’s created more than 50 of these images.

Valve Index users can now virtually recreate their own room | PC Gamer | Design, Comm, Sci and Tech | Scoop.it
In the ever-evolving quest to never have to take our VR headsets off, Valve recently released a new feature for Index users that can accurately project the room around you in 3D space.The goal of the feature, called Room View 3D, is to give a more precise representation of the user's environment for moments when you'd otherwise need to take the headset off. Valve's announcement post doesn't go into detail about how it works, but people who have tried it speculate that it's using the Index's multiple cameras to build a live 3D environment.

Squid skin is naturally anti-microbial

Squid skin is naturally anti-microbial | Design, Comm, Sci and Tech | Scoop.it

This new finding makes squid skin a potentially valuable medical product, and could reduce waste from commercial fisheries.

 

Many types of squid have the ability to alter the color of skin cells called chromatophores, in order to blend in with their environment. This allows them to hide from predators, and is often triggered when the squid feels threatened. These same squids, including the Humboldt squid (Dosidicus gigas), are commercially fished in parts of North and South America.

Earth's magnetic field changes faster than previously thought

Earth's magnetic field changes faster than previously thought | Design, Comm, Sci and Tech | Scoop.it
A new study reveals that changes in the direction of the Earth’s magnetic field may take place 10 times faster than previously thought.

 

Their study gives new insight into the swirling flow of iron 2800 kilometers below the planet's surface and how it has influenced the movement of the magnetic field during the past hundred thousand years.

 

Our magnetic field is generated and maintained by a convective flow of molten metal that forms the Earth's outer core. Motion of the liquid iron creates the electric currents that power the field, which not only helps guide navigational systems but also helps shield us from harmful extra terrestrial radiation and hold our atmosphere in place.

Google Just Acquired Smart Glasses Startup North | #Acquisitions

Google Just Acquired Smart Glasses Startup North | #Acquisitions | Design, Comm, Sci and Tech | Scoop.it

Last Friday, it was reported that Canadian smart glasses startup North was on the verge of being snapped up by Alphabet, Google’s parent company. Today, it’s official.

North announced the acquisition on both Twitter and in an official blog. Details regarding the terms of the sale were scant, though a Globe and Mail scoop from Friday put the number at around $180 million. North’s remaining staff will, however, be staying in Kitchener-Waterloo, Canada and joining a Google team also based there.
