When Amazon and Google amongst others are getting ready for drone deliveries, Walmart didn't want to be left behind. Walmart too applied for a license to test aerial drone for a variety of uses in its operations, which of course includes delivery of packages.
Images from the New Horizons probe have revealed intriguing information about the surface profile of Pluto. The terrain of the farthest member of our Solar System has astounded researchers with its diverse complexity.
Tesla Motors is planning to set up a Tesla assembly unit in India soon. A full-fledged manufacturing plant might be far-fetched, but a Tesla assembly unit to assemble Tesla Model 3 cars for the Asian markets make sense for Tesla Motors. This decision is said to be due to PM Modi's pitch for 'Make in India' in Silicon Valley on his recent trip.
‘The Martian’ is a space drama coming from the house of Ridley Scott. The trailer was specially screened in India for the scientists at ISRO and guess what? They thoroughly enjoyed it.
Pluto is still on the go of surprising us with astonishing landscape features we Earthlings could have never imagined. In the recent photos received by NASA from the New Horizons probe the surface of Pluto has, stretching across many kilometers snake-skin like ridges that are expected to be outcomes of tectonic and sublimation activities.
Jupiter is the biggest planet in our solar system with the greatest number of moons. Presently, about 67 moons of Jupiter have been confirmed, the four most important ones being Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto.
In recent past, the New Horizons spacecraft reached the closest anything from Earth has ever been to the farthest reaches of our system, to planet Pluto. Images taken by the spacecraft gave a new dimension to all previous notions of the dwarf planet.
A team of scientists from Loughborough University have devised a machine that will bring a remarkable change in the lives of paralyzed people in...
In a mock mission to mars scientists will live under unearthly conditions to throw some insight in the problems humans might face while exploring the Red Planet. The setup will ensure the best possible preparation for astronauts in the future endeavors to Mars.
NASA is working on its current project, a spaceship named Orion to enable more extensive and deep exploration of the universe. The spacecraft is scheduled to take its unmanned maiden voyage flying aross Nasa's Space Launch System (SLS) in December.
The universe has never failed to amaze and stun us with its mystery. Shooting stars happen to be on that very list. Just as beautiful as they are magical it’s an eager wait for all to be wishing upon one. Lucky for us, a meteor shower is just around the corner. Every year around the summer months of July and August, the northern hemisphere experiences the Perseids, one of the brighter showers reaching its maximum activity around mid August.
When we talk about growing plants in space, the idea seems to have come right out of a science fiction book. Except that it hasn’t. The Vegetable Production System (Veggie) is a deployable plant growth unit that has been developed by Orbital Technologies Corp. (ORBITEC) in Madison, Wisconsin, and tested at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
Bio-mimicry is a popular sector in science. For generations scientists have taken inspiration from their fellow earth inhabitants to get a better understanding of the biosphere and of how to make the best of what nature has to offer.
All the planets in the universe generate a magnetic field around them due to the motion of conductive fluids present in their core. The fluids are present in the form of molten minerals and the system is called a geodynamo. In Earth the geodynamo is created due to the movement of molten iron in its outer core. This magnetic field meets the solar winds, a stream of charged particles emanating from the Sun in the magnetosphere and protects the Earth.
The next big thing in building science is the revolution of the common window into a device which will admit light or heat as per user’s choice. These smart windows will be made of electrochromic materials and will be a blend of two materials. They will be separately responsible for control of visible light and heat received from the sun.
