    • 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...

    • New-generation exascale supercomputer prototype Tested New-generation-exascale-supercomputer-prototype-Tested

      The prototype of China’s new-generation exascale supercomputer Tianhe-3 has been tested for over 30 organizations in China, and it is expected to provide computing services to users in China and overseas, the National Supercomputer Center in Tianjin said. The prototype was operated to meet simultaneous demands from 30 organizations including the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the China Aerodynamics Research and Development Center, said Meng Xiangfei, head of the center’s applied research and development department. The prototype of the new supercomputer Tianhe-3 was operated to meet simultaneous demands from 30 organizations. It has provided computing services for over 50 apps...

    • 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...

    • Check it out. What does the first plant on the Moon look like? Check-it-out-What-does-the-first-plant-on-the-Moon-look-like

      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...

    • Intelligent driving bus line put into trial operation in central China Intelligent-driving-bus-line-put-into-trial-operation -in-central-China

      China’s first route for intelligent driving buses on open roads was put into trial operation in Changsha, capital of central China’s Hunan Province, on Friday. The demonstration bus line measures 7.8 km with a total of 22 stations on the two-way journey in the city’s Xiangjiang New Area. During the trial, four electric intelligent driving buses will be put into use, according to sources with the management committee of the area. Having passed through traffic lights, made turns and stopped at the stations along the scheduled route, one of the buses successfully finished the whole journey on Friday morning without...

    • 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...

    • India to send three-person crew on landmark space mission India-to-send-three-person-crew-on-landmark-space-mission

      India will send a three-member team into orbit for up to a week when it launches its first manned space mission expected in 2022, the government announced Friday. Indian ministers approved 1.4 billion U.S. dollars to provide technology and infrastructure for the program, according to a government statement. The statement said India also hopes to take part in “global” space projects. India will become the fourth nation after Russia, the United States, and China to send a manned mission into space. Ministers approved financing to launch an Indian-developed craft into a “low earth orbit” for a duration ranging from...

    • China launches first Hongyun low-orbit satellite China-launches-first-Hongyun-low-orbit-satellite

      China successfully sent a low-Earth-orbit communication satellite into space via a Long March 11 carrier rocket on Saturday morning from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwest China, marking great strides for China’s satellite launch in low orbit.  As the first satellite in the Hongyun family, the Hongyun-1 is expected to verify low-orbit broadband communication technologies applied on the satellite constellation. According to NASA Space Flight, a U.S.-based space flight news website, this is the first satellite in a vast space-based communications network capable of covering every corner on Earth, including the Arctic and Antarctica. The constellation, announced by...

    • Mars: Pictures reveal ‘winter wonderland’ on the red planet Mars-Pictures-reveal-winter-wonderland-on-the-red-planet1

      Earth’s North Pole is famous for its snowy climes – and for hosting Santa’s workshop, of course. But as these pictures reveal, it’s not the only planet with snow scenes this holiday season. This is the Korolev crater, near the north pole of Mars, as captured by the European Space Agency (ESA)’s Mars Express mission. The crater is 82km (50 miles) across, and filled with ice 1.8km thick. It was named after rocket engineer and spacecraft designer Sergei Korolev, the architect of the Soviet Union’s space programme. Mr Korolev worked on the first interplanetary missions to the Moon, Mars...
