    • Virtual cities: Designing the metropolises of the future Virtual-cities-Designing-the-metropolises-of-the-future

      Simulation software that can create accurate “digital twins” of entire cities is enabling planners, designers and engineers to improve their designs and measure the effect changes will have on the lives of citizens. Cities are hugely complex and dynamic creations. They live and breathe. Think about all the parts: millions of people, schools, offices, shops, parks, utilities, hospitals, homes and transport systems. Changing one aspect affects many others. Which is why planning is such a hard job. So imagine having a tool at your disposal that could answer questions such as “What will happen to pedestrian and traffic flow...

    • YouTube bans dangerous or harmful pranks YouTube-bans-dangerous-or-harmful-pranks

      YouTube clips that depict dangerous or emotionally distressing “pranks” have been banned from the platform. The move comes in response to so-called “challenges” that have sometimes resulted in death or injury. The Google-owned video sharing site said such material had “no place on YouTube”. However, the firm appears to be failing to enforce its existing rules on harmful content. A Buzzfeed report detailed how images depicting, or alluding to, bestiality were still appearing on the site – despite a pledge last April to remove the material. Some of the videos had attracted many millions of views. YouTube said it “worked...

      China’s Chang’e-4 probe successfully carried out its first biological experiment on the Moon’s far side, as the latest photo released by scientists at the Chongqing University on Tuesday showed that one of the cotton seeds, taken up to the Moon by the lunar exploration probe, has sprouted.  Aboard the lander of the Chang’e-4 spacecraft is a biological experiment payload, carrying six “passengers.”  Who are they? According to professor Xie Gengxin, chief designer of the biological experiment payload, the first “visitors” include seeds of potato, cotton, Arabidopsis, rapeseeds, as well as fruit flies pupae, and some yeast.  A micro-ecosystem in...

    • Research shows supernova may have caused extinction of Megalodon Research-shows-supernova-may-have-caused-extinction-of-Megalodon

      New research showed supernova which happened 2.6 million years ago may have touched off climate change and triggered mass extinctions of large ocean animals including Megalodon. There could have been one or a series of supernovae happened, some 150 light years away from the Earth, Adrian Melott, professor emeritus of physics & astronomy at the University of Kansas, told Xinhua.  Supernova is the explosion of a star that has reached the end of its life. It could briefly outshine entire galaxies and radiate more energy than the sun will in its entire lifetime. It is also the primary source of...

    • NASA spaceship closes in on distant world NASA-spaceship-closes-in-on-distant-world

      NASA’s unmanned New Horizons spacecraft is closing in on its historic New Year’s flyby target, the most distant world ever studied, a frozen relic of the solar system some four billion miles (6.4 billion kilometers) away. The cosmic object, known as Ultima Thule, is about the size of the US capital, Washington, and orbits in the dark and frigid Kuiper Belt about a billion miles beyond the dwarf planet, Pluto. The spacecraft’s closest approach to this primitive space rock comes January 1 at 12:33 a.m. ET (0533 GMT). Until then, what it looks like, and what it is made...
