Team of engineers from NASA and University of California, Berkeley have teamed up to develop unique folding robots that can survive lengthy drop on any planet and then began rolling like it rules the land. We'll give you no extra marks for guessing that this would be immensely useful in all the upcoming space missions where we put machines on other planet's surface. Landing the robots safely against all the odd conditions has remain one of the top challenges for all the Mars Missions taken...

Graphene was produced in small amount for centuries. But, now the demand for graphene has increased and it is widely used in semiconductor, electronics, battery, et al. It has the potential to efficiently convert light into electricity. Earlier studies have demonstrated that graphene-based photothermoelectric devices respond to flashes of light and generate photovoltage in order of picoseconds. However, researchers now know that graphene can convert light into electrical signals at a much...

The 1.3 m earthbound Telescope examines the space for finding undiscovered planets of the Milky Way galaxy by using a technique called ‘microlensing’. It is an event that occurs when a star crosses another star. And, the star's gravity works like a lens that magnifies and brightens the faraway star's light. If the foreground star is orbiting a planet then during...
