On 11-12 July, the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams achieved a major project milestone by accelerating its first beams in three of forty-six superconducting cryomodules. This demonstrates for the first time that the major systems (front end, liquid helium plant, superconducting cryomodules) which were commissioned individually, work well together and can successfully accelerate beams of atomic particles.
Can computer games help U.S. Navy recruits find military jobs they'll enjoy and turn into long-term careers? To find out, the Office of Naval Research is sponsoring Navy Life, an online platform of Navy-themed games and simulations.
A Purdue University-affiliated startup is developing instruments to precisely measure pressure, temperature and other analytics inside the harsh environments of rocket engines and gas turbines. Petal Solutions LLC 's expertise in computational fluid dynamics has allowed the researchers to push the boundaries in cooling and design probe technologies. The researchers decided to design their own instruments to mount in engines to track engine performance because they couldn't find anything adequate on the market.
Researchers at Stevens Institute of Technology are developing algorithms that teach robots to adapt to the constantly changing dynamics of the sea in order to address one of our nation's greatest concerns: protecting and preserving our aging water-rooted infrastructure, such as piers, pipelines, bridges and dams.
The availability of water from underground aquifers is vital to the basic needs of more than 1.5 billion people worldwide. In recent decades, however, the over-pumping of groundwater, combined with drought, has caused some aquifers to permanently lose their essential storage capacity.
The Department of Emergency Medicine at The Mount Sinai Hospital is the first in New York State to be accredited as a geriatric emergency department (ED) by the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP).
This summer, a four-engine cargo plane laden with scientists and sophisticated equipment will make flights straight into hazy smoke from Western wildfires. The flights will be the largest, most comprehensive attempt to date to measure and analyze the wildfire smoke that blankets vast swaths of the US every year.
Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) pioneer Saguna Networks has become a new collaborator within 5TONIC's 5G research and co-creation laboratory in Madrid. The company joins existing collaborators that include ASTI Mobile Robotics, IFEMA, Luz Wavelabs, and Rohde & Schwarz.
Bulky kitchen gadgets like slow cookers and pressure cookers take up a lot of space. Many people might wonder if owning so many glorified pots is worthwhile. In this video, Reactions explains how slow cookers, pressure cookers and immersion circulators work, and the chemistry of how they cook your food: https://youtu.be/5cc5fWOjIxk.
