The U.S. Geological Survey has been keeping a record of all the satellite images since 1972. This record contains all the tracks of changes that have occurred globally in the field of agriculture, cartography, geology, forestry, regional development, education, and national security. These images have been a proof of the global changes that has occurred throughout the world. But these records were kept restricted from viewing by the common people as it could pose a threat to some of...

Invention of Superconductors Turns 100

john April 12, 2011 No Comments
Superconductors It has been a century since the discovery of Superconductors. The discovery was made by Heike Onnes on April 8th, 1911 at the Leiden Cryogenic Laboratory in Netherlands. The first experiment involved the immersing of a mercury capillary in liquid helium. In this experiment, Heike Onnes noticed the resistance of the mercury dropping to zero as soon as the temperature reaches 3 Kelvin’s or 3 degrees above absolute zero temperature. This was the first phenomenon which clearly showed...

New Nanomaterial Developed to Kill Drug Resistant Bacteria

john April 6, 2011 1 Comment
Nanotechnology has once again proved its worth in the medical field. Researchers had recently developed a solution that can be rubbed on the skin to remove all bacteria’s that cannot be killed by the existing antibiotics and drugs. More advanced studies have led to the discovery of a microbial agent that can be directly injected into the body to kill the strong bacteria’s. The basic semiconductor manufacturing principle was used to manufacture such an agent. The research team included...

Infrared (IR) Blaster

john April 6, 2011 2 Comments
Introduction An IR Blaster is a device that functions or imitates an IR Remote Control in its features. This device is used to control other devices. If this device is connected to a PC, it can be used to control all the other IR devices that are present in the room with the help of that PC. The deice is relatively small compared to other IR devices and can be self-powered by just plugging them to the device that...

StunRay Technology to Substitute Tasers and Guns to be used on Suspects

john April 4, 2011 1 Comment
StunRay Technology We have seen movies where a suspect points the gun at the cops who are forced to shoot him to save their own lives. Due to this, either one or both of them get hurt. A new technology (also can be called as a weapon) called StunRay has been developed by a company called Genesis Illumination which can be used to capture the suspect without much violence and bloodshed. The device they developed has already been patented...

Direct Conversion of Solar Energy into Fuel

john April 1, 2011 5 Comments
The concept of transforming solar energy directly into fuel is not easy. The method was tried out by researchers for the past decade and many prototypes were developed. But all the past attempts had some basic problems like life span, cost and efficiency and even the combination of all three. Some ideas remained intact as the materials required to conduct the experiment was very costly and were also not abundant. As the basic idea was to commercialize it, there...

Electric charging of a Chevy Volt The main idea behind using electric vehicles is to stop the use of non-renewable source of energy like gasoline. For this purpose, all automobile companies are trying their best to develop electric as well as hybrid cars so that the use of gasoline can be restricted to a certain level. New cars like Chevy Volt and Nissan Leaf have already been released in the market and they seem to be widely accepted...

Airplanes to be built with Carbon Nanotube Composites

john March 28, 2011 1 Comment
As explained earlier, the nanomaterials are lighter, stronger and long lasting than other materials. This advantage has been exercised in replacing the aluminium body of airplanes with composite materials including nanomaterials. Related Articles NANOTECHNOLOGY LATEST RESEARCH ON NANOTECHNOLOGY NANOELECTRONICS IMPLICATIONS OF NANOTECHNOLOGY As such a composite material has less weight; the whole body weight of the airplane will almost reduce to half the original weight. This will help in reducing the fuel consumption of the airplane. Another advantage is...
