    • New lander will add to humans’ long fascination with Mars New-lander-add -humans-long-fascination-with -Mars

          In our solar system family, Mars is Earth’s next-of-kin, the next-door relative that has captivated humans for millennia. The attraction is sure to grow with Monday’s arrival of a NASA lander named InSight. InSight should provide our best look yet at Mars’ deep interior, using a mechanical mole to tunnel 16 feet (five meters) deep to measure internal heat, and a seismometer to register quakes, meteorite strikes and anything else that might start the red planet shaking. Scientists consider Mars a tantalizing time capsule. It is less geologically active than the twice-as-big Earth and so retains much...

    • Chinese scientist announces first gene-edited babies born Chinese-scientist-announces-first-gene-edited-babies-born

      Chinese scientist He Jiankui said that he helped make the world’s first genetically edited babies – twin girls born this month whose DNA he altered with a powerful new tool capable of resisting possible future infection with HIV, the AIDS virus, according to People’s Daily. He revealed it in Hong Kong, one day ahead of an international conference on gene editing that is scheduled from Tuesday to Thursday. He’s team used the CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing tool that makes it possible to precisely locate and operate on DNA to supply a needed gene or disable one that’s causing problems. However, AP...

    • China launches remote sensing to monitor operation of FAST telescope China-launches-remote-sensing-monitr-operation-of-FAST-telescope

        Southwest China’s Guizhou Province has used remote sensing to monitor the operation of China’s Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Radio Telescope (FAST), the world’s largest single-dish radio telescope. The provincial natural resources department said that remote sensing has been launched in the radio-quiet zone, to ensure the operation of FAST will not be affected by the electromagnetic environment. The radio-quiet zone was set up around FAST with a perimeter of 30 km, where the frequencies and radio power are strictly limited. The monitoring scope covers 15 towns in three Guizhou counties and two counties of neighboring Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region....

    • InSight: Nasa’s Mars mission on target for landing InSight-Nasa's-Mars-mission-on-target-for-landing

          The American space agency Nasa says its InSight Mars lander is on a near-perfect Thanksgiving trajectory. The probe is due to touch down on Monday at 19:53 GMT, to begin its quest to map the Red Planet’s interior. Engineers can take the opportunity for one last course correction on Sunday to tighten the line to the bulls-eye – but they may not bother with it. “Right now we’re looking really good, and we might be able to skip it,” said Nasa’s Tom Hoffman. “We’ll be working on the final parameters we need over the next few days,...

    • Why artificial intelligence is shaping our world??? People in a data matrix world.

        We stand on the edge of a crucial moment in the history of our species – a time when a creation of our own inventiveness has the potential to change everything. For some, it will be humanity’s salvation, while for others, it could be our downfall. We are entering the age of artificial intelligence (AI). While AI is still some way from the sentient machines portrayed in science fiction, the creation of algorithms that can learn, understand language and mimic some aspects of the human mind have led to huge advances. Today AI is being used in hundreds...

    • A slew of electric truck plans may deliver the goods for China’s EV ambitions electrick-trucks-for-goods-delever-china

        The head of electric car startup Singulato Motors has grand plans for the new factory in Hunan Province: Ramp up the annual output to 50,000 by 2020 and ride the crest of a wave for e-truck demand in China. “We think China’s about to see an electric commercial vehicle revolution,” Singulato co-founder Shen Haiyin told Reuters in an interview. “In many ways, the EV future might arrive faster with commercial vehicles than passenger EVs.” Singulato, which is due to launch its first electric car by the middle of next year, hopes to open the e-truck plant by 2020....

    • China’s ‘artificial sun’ operates at temperatures of 100 million degrees Celsius china-artificial-sun1

      China is making leaps and bounds in developing its “artificial sun,” known as the Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST) by operating nuclear fusion reaction at temperatures of 100 million degrees Celsius, according to the Institute of Plasma Physics, affiliated with the Chinese Academy of Sciences on Monday. The EAST, a device independently designed and developed by Chinese scientists to harness the energy of nuclear fusion, is taking a step closer to maintaining a more stable fusion reaction as long as possible and at an even higher temperature. In a world faced with the dilemma of an increasing demand for...

    • Startup Rocket Lab puts 6 small satellites into orbit startup-rocket-lab's-satellite(6)-into-orbit

      Rocket Lab’s second-ever mission, nicknamed “It’s Business Time,” launched successfully from a New Zealand launch pad over the weekend.   A scrappy American rocket startup just set the bar in the red-hot market for companies that launch small satellites. Why smallsats? Rocket Lab’s Electron rocket launched six small satellites — or smallsats — into a low-Earth orbit Sunday from New Zealand. It’s the second time company’s rocket, which is less than 60 feet tall, has done that. Rocket Lab’s rivals have not yet pulled off an orbital launch, which means it is at the front of an increasingly crowded pack...

    • Huawei’s self-developed NM cards feature transfer speeds of 90MB/s world-first-nano-memory-card

      During its launch event for the Mate 20 series smartphones on October 16 in London, Huawei also introduced a new type of expandable storage device – Nano Memory (NM) card, the first NM card in the world. As a new storage media standard, the NM card takes up less space under the same capacity. Identical with nano SIM cards in size and shape, the NM card is 45 percent smaller than traditional micro SD cards.   Li Xiaolong, Huawei’s vice president in the mobile phone business, said on China’s Twitter-like Sina Weibo, “The NM card has a read speed...

    • China to launch small communication satellites for commercial use for the first time china-small-communication-satellite

      In a world where the Internet is a virtual necessity, China is helping bring it to areas where it’s not always reliable. China Great Wall Industry Corporation (CGWIC) announced a customized new system of small communication satellites for overseas users, on the sidelines of Airshow China 2018 held from November 6 to 11 in Zhuhai City. The system is based on the DFH-4F SMALL GEO Platform, which enables high-speed Internet services for overseas users in remote areas. This is the first time that China will launch small communication satellites for commercial use, which have an operation life of 15 years,...
