Spot tackles lava tubes as JPL prepares for the final DARPA SubT event
(American Chemical Society) Many city surfaces are coated with a layer of soot, pollutants, metals, organic compounds and other molecules known as "urban grime." Chemical reactions that occur in this complex milieu can affect air and water quality. Now, researchers reporting in ACS Earth and Space Chemistry have taken a closer look at urban grime collected from two U.S. cities, revealing for the first time that the material absorbs sunlight and therefore might participate in photochemical reactions.
Ayurveda is the combination of two word ayur and veda. According to Ayurveda, a person is composed of five elements they are fire,air,water , earth, and space. These three doshas are related with these five elements. Balance of the three-state provide the good health and in balance provide diseases. Ayurveda Deutschland cure the diseases but it does not make any other effect in body. The origin of Ayurveda  is from Kerala and the foreigners are very much fond of this natural healing system.
Luxury holiday rentals Mornington Peninsula continues to be at the guts with the European aerospace industry for the past two decades Here lies the headquarters of Airbus, Galileo positioning system, the SPOT satellite system, and CNES's Toulouse Space Centre (CST), the most important space centre in Europe.Thales Alenia Space, Europe's largest satellite manufacturer, and EADS Astrium Satellites, EADS's satellite system subsidiary, also have a significant presence in Toulouse.Thanks to this economic boom the town has remained largely untouched.Airbus offers tours that show you the facilities; the tour roughly lasts for approximately one hour and offers which you detail in regards to the company history, also gives you a look at the A380 production line.Photography for the tour is strictly forbidden and you may need to bring photo identification plus should you choose opt remember to book ahead.The 'space city' is yet another of Toulouse's attraction that targets aviation.He you can find some replicas of spacecraft's, other air and space related vehicles and also other exhibits which some are interactive.
WASHINGTON, D.C., May 6, 2019 -- The obvious drawback of solar panels is that they require sunlight to generate electricity.Some have observed that for a device on Earth facing space, which has a frigid temperature, the chilling outflow of energy from the device can be harvested using the same kind of optoelectronic physics we have used to harness solar energy.New work, in a recent issue of Applied Physics Letters, from AIP Publishing, looks to provide a potential path to generating electricity like solar cells but that can power electronics at night.An international team of scientists has demonstrated for the first time that it is possible to generate a measurable amount of electricity in a diode directly from the coldness of the universe.The infrared semiconductor device faces the sky and uses the temperature difference between Earth and space to produce the electricity."The vastness of the universe is a thermodynamic resource," said Shanhui Fan, an author on the paper.
Drawing from nine of the country's most prestigious research universities, 11 young researchers were selected from a pool of more than 840 applicants to receive up to five years of academic support valued at up to $250,000."It is increasingly challenging to get funding for truly creative scientific research, but it is even more so for young researchers to pursue their own ideas," said David Galas, Chairman of the Hertz Foundation's Board of Directors and a senior investigator at the Pacific Northwest Research Institute."I am very gratified that these terrific new Hertz Fellows will now be able to focus on the research questions they find most compelling in their fields."As noted by Robbee Baker Kosak, President of the Fannie and John Hertz Foundation, "By combining approaches from mathematics and computer science, machine learning and biology, and so much more, this year's class reflects the dynamic nature of science and engineering today.They are also leaders in business and industry whose accomplishments include developing groundbreaking diagnostics and treatments for disease, new innovations for energy creation and storage, novel tools for exploring earth and space, and creating new supercomputer designs.Introducing the 2019 Hertz Fellows:
Former Google engineer Alan Eustace broke the record for longest freefall in 2014, when he jumped from 135,890 feet.He reached maximum speeds above 820 mph.Eustace says he's no daredevil: The engineer and pilot spent months doing test flights, training, and finessing the design of his special suit.The feat is chronicled in the documentary "14 Minutes from Earth," which is now on Netflix.Alan Eustace holds a daredevil-ish world record: In 2014, at age 57, he performed the highest human free-fall ever.From that height — in the area between the Earth and space — you can glimpse the curvature of the planet.
The Space Station is only about 250 miles from Earth, and astronauts are never alone there, yet it remains a perfect modern metaphor for isolation.The reason is simple: It’s the ultimate mental image of being separated from our loved ones.Earlier this year, Ronald McDonald House and Canadian agency Cossette used the image allegorically, illustrating a mom’s feeling of not being able to visit her child in the hospital.Now, for the holiday season, Macy’s and agency BBDO New York take to orbit for a more literal story of a family separated at Christmas while mom is serving solo on a spacecraft.Through a series of brief and potent scenes, we watch from both the Earth and space as the holidays near and hopes for a family reunion dwindle.But luckily, her daughter planned ahead for just such a contingency:
When Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico on September 20, 2017, the storm devastated the island's electrical grid, leaving many people without power for months.This lack of electricity, as well as other storm-related damage, prevented air-quality monitoring in many areas.Now researchers have shown that low-cost sensors that run on solar energy can be used to monitor air pollution after a disaster.They report their results in ACS Earth and Space Chemistry.Three months after Hurricane Maria, half of Puerto Rico still lacked electricity, while the other half experienced frequent power outages.As a result, backup generators that ran on gasoline or diesel were widely used, potentially increasing air pollution.
For the second consecutive year, the global startup launch program Founder Institute is partnering up with the International NASA Space Apps Challenge to offer fellowships for the brightest and most talented future “spacepreneurs”.The NASA Space Apps is a global annual 1-weekend competition for the origination of scientific and technological solutions using NASA’s open data.Each year the National Aeronautics and Space Administration opens its data to mobilize talents all across the globe to join forces and brains and hack some of the biggest challenges that the Earth and Space are currently facing, using robotics, data visualization, design, hardware and many more applications.The annual event in 2018 is run simultaneously in +200 cities worldwide from october 19th to 21st.In 2017 more than 25,000 talents participated in the International NASA Hackathon from 187 cities in 69 countries.After regional evaluation of the 2,017 projects, the finalists had been judged by the NASA and Space Apps jury for global finalists and winners within the 6 categories: “Best Use of Data”, “Best Use of Hardware”, “Best Mission Concept”, “Galactic Impact”, “Most Inspirational” and “People’s Choice”.
Next time you step inside an elevator, imagine it has a button marked “space.”It may sound like the stuff of science fiction, but researchers in Japan are prepping an experiment for this month to test part of a design for an elevator between Earth and space.Based at Shizuoka University, 80 miles west of Tokyo, the research team envisions a so-called “space elevator” as a low-cost alternative to rockets for getting astronauts and cargo to orbiting space stations way above Earth.The experiment is the first of its kind, Japan’s Mainichi newspaper reported.We first heard about Japan’s plan for a space elevator six years ago when construction firm Obayashi Corporation outlined an electric-powered design capable of transporting up to 30 people at a time into space.While the two projects are separate, Obayashi has agreed to act as technical adviser for the Shizuoka team, sharing expertise gained from its own research conducted over the last few years.
Scientists had long suspected that dawn broke over the cosmos that long ago; theorists' models predict as much.Before this new study, the oldest stars ever seen dated to about 400 million years after the Big Bang.[The Universe: Big Bang to Now in 10 Easy Steps]"This pushes our knowledge of when and how stars formed to earlier times in the universe," said study lead author Judd Bowman, an astronomer at Arizona State University's School of Earth and Space Exploration.In addition, the signal that Bowman and his team found was surprisingly strong.For starters, there are fewer and fewer stars to find.
WASHINGTON, DC -- The American Geophysical Union (AGU) today announced the three winners of its Open API Challenge, including first place winners Bennett Battaile and Meenakshi Rao for their "AGU Explorer" app.AGU's Open Application Programming Interface (API) Challenge tasked participants with using the broad wealth of data from its 2014, 2015, and 2016 Fall Meeting scientific programs, as well as available data from the upcoming 2017 Fall Meeting, in innovative ways to create an interactive web-based application that added value to the scientific program data in some way.Application categories included but were not limited to: serendipitous discovery of relevant research; discovery of new collaboration opportunities; and identification of emerging areas of science.The nested pie chart page reveals meeting data progressively; presenting meetings, programs, sessions and abstracts in order."I'd like to offer my congratulations to all three teams on their award-winning applications which succeeded in using the data in unique ways to benefit users.Seeing scientists and developers engage with and find novel uses for our data is exciting and brings great value to the Earth and space sciences."

Rochester Institute of Technology graduate student Chi Nguyen was selected for a NASA Earth and Space Science Fellowship in Astrophysics Research.The NASA fellowship carries a $45,000 award, including a student stipend and funding for student- and university expenses.It will support Nguyen's continued research investigating how astronomical structures like galaxies and stars formed after the Big Bang.Nguyen and Michael Zemcov, assistant professor in RIT's School of Physics and Astronomy, use an observational technique known as intensity mapping to build a picture of astronomical objects in the early universe.Distribution and size of structures can be inferred by studying fluctuations of light and multiwavelength data in the cosmic infrared background -- the historical record of light from ancient stars and galaxies that makes up a portion of all the light in the universe."Because intensity mapping uses the ensemble of light from all galaxies [extragalactic background light], rather than individual ones, this technique is faster than source surveys--where you have to search and count every galaxy--and is more powerful at detecting very faint signals at large distances," Nguyen said.
Neil deGrasse Tyson is an astrophysicist, director of New York's Hayden Planetarium and author of 14 books about space.He has also played adviser to Nasa as part of a team to implement the United States' vision for future space exploration.1 Today, Tyson spends a large part of his career communicating science to the public.WIRED met deGrasse Tyson to discuss his role, the mathematical likelihood of other civilisations in our galaxy, and why space exploration could power Earth's nations towards economic prosperity.What happens is people call me - the press, documentarians, publishers - and that's when I'm alerted that there's an appetite out there for what I have expertise in.I like that there's a desire to want to send people to Mars.I have my scepticism about how and when that will happen, but I will not stand in their way because somebody's got to dream like that.
