WKRP is part of the Thanksgiving tradition with its Turkey drop episode. There was a famous line from Mr Carlson. As god is my witness I thought Turkeys could fly. the episode had a marketing promotion go wrong as turkey …
Using rapid-spray plasma processing, the Stanford team was able to produce 40 feet (12 meters) of perovskite film per minute about four times faster than it takes to manufacture a silicon cell. We achieved the highest throughput of any …
Researchers at the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), Cerebras showed that a single wafer-scale Cerebras CS-1 can outperform one of the fastest supercomputers in the US by more than 200 X. They had 0.86 PetaFLOPS of performance on the single …
Researchers at Tel Aviv University have demonstrated that the CRISPR/Cas9 system is very effective in treating metastatic cancers, a significant step on the way to finding a cure for cancer. The researchers developed a novel lipid nanoparticle-based delivery system that …
A new study from Tel Aviv University and the Shamir Medical Center indicates that HBOT (treatments with high-pressure oxygen) in healthy aging adults can stop the aging of blood cells. The researchers found that a unique protocol of treatments in …
Optically transparent aerogel is essentially a lightweight foam made of silica, the material of beach sand, and consists mostly of air. It reduces the rate of heat loss by tenfold. This transparent insulating material is bonded onto the top of …
Elon Musk tweeted that SpaceX developed and uses LIDAR for Dragon docking with the Space Station. Elon and Tesla do not use LIDAR for for self-driving. Elon commented that if you are going to do active photon generation then use …
Seven months ago, Nextbigfuture looked at the post pandemic world future as the pandemic was starting. We are now about halfway through the global pandemic. The World Bank’s baseline projection is for a 5.2% global economic contraction. China and several …
For most of the last 57 years, the Arecibo radio telescope was the largest telescope in the world. Two cable breaks over the past few months. The telescope will be dismantled before it collapses. The 900-ton instrument platform is suspended …
Ferroelectric Memory Company has $20 million in funding for sub-7 nanometer FeFET memories. This is energy saving non-volatile memory. They will first have 28nm planar CMOS for consumer applications in 2023 followed by IoT and industrial applications and then by …
